Album Review

Underneath his tongue-twisting wordplay, Jason Mraz fancies himself a loverman — and given that his greatest success came from the sticky sentiment of "I'm Yours," who can blame him for thinking this way? Nevertheless, he's never made a full-blown makeout record until Love Is a Four Letter Word, an album steeped in '70s soul. Mraz doesn't neglect his acoustic guitar nor does he abandon his showy verbal gymnastics, but apart from a cut or two — including "I Won't Give Up," the album's first single — they're buried underneath stacks of luxurious strings and thick, insistent grooves, touches that tie the record together with elegance. Mr. A-Z has hinted at soul before but he's never placed music over words, a shift of emphasis that delivers great dividends. He can still be a nasally, hyperactive twit, too eager to succumb to clever-clever puns and quips, but there's an acknowledgment that even if he can't change who he is — witness the terribly titled "Fred D Fixer," an ode to a grandfather who lived by his hands, not his wits — he can build upon this foundation. If all he adds is color and flair, not some serious depth, that winds up being enough: by making alterations and affecting his pose, Mraz pushes himself into new territory, creating music that's perilously close to sounding seductive. What holds Love Is a Four Letter Word from actually being seductive is that Mraz seems more lech than Lothario — there's always a sense that he's around for nothing longer than a night. But, as Love Is a Four Letter Word plays, Mraz can convince you that his pleasures are a bit more than fleeting. It may be a lie, but it sure sounds good as it's told. [Love Is a Four Letter Word was also released on LP.]

Customer Reviews

Brilliant Mraz music

Every song in this new album displays Jason Mraz' LOVE for music writing! From "Freedom Song" to the live tracks -- it's all Mraz style of music. Permanently on repeat!

Best Is A Four Letter Word

An absolutely incredible album! Worth every cent. Over the last 10 years or so, Mraz has never failed to impress! Best album of 2012.

Sharing the love.

Every once in awhile a musician comes along that has the ability to exceed my expectations lyrically and musically with every new release.
I have been a professional musician for over 25 years now, so I can say that his live music has the ability to touch, move and inspire me like no other artist has ever done before.
Expose yourself to a musician that will keep you entertained - an influential communicator who has the ability to reach into your life and open up your world to endless possibilities. Check out ANY of the live tracks from this album, or any other album. The only thing missing for me was an abundance of the wonderful vocal combination of Jason & Toca.
