BRUNO HAS ME LOCKED OUT OF HEAVEN
on March 20, 2013
This album is just brilliant! I have not played anything else but this album for the last month because im so addicted to it & love it that much!
Bruno Mars is one of the few generally talented artists of the modern era in my opinion. (music nowadays is autotuned and just someone singing over a dance beat most of the time). With Bruno, comes a whole other story. He has so many different styles and genres on this album, which is one of the things i love about the album. Theres a bit of pop, 50s style, 60s, 80s, reggae...very broad...AND HE CAN ACTUALLY SING, write, produce, play the instruments..VERY TALENTED! :)
I also love that he has used the "old" way of recording which is recoding his tracks with live instruments etc and not with computers. this just makes the album sound fresh and that more real.
The only bad thing i would say of this album is it is only 35 minutes long. I need more Bruno! Enter "Unorthodox Jukebox Target Deluxe Edition" This edition (exclusive to Target) has 5 bonus tracks:
1 new song, 2 demos (of Gorilla & Young Girls. basically acousticy as this is Bruno and a guitar. Alot of things are stripped away in the demo versions), 2 remixes. These bonus tracks really give you an insight to the process Bruno went through making this album and just makes it that much better!
Most modern music is what i say "for the moment" meaning that they are good for that first couple years they are out and then they just fade away. However unlike most modern music and like the classics that are from the early 90s/ 80s and before, this album is timeless. I know ill be listening to this album is years to come. Bruno really has got me "Locked out of Heaven" with this!
All i can say is GO GET THE ALBUM!! You will NOT be disappointed!!
