Comfort Listening at Its Finest!

Jason Mraz has long suffered from criticism that his albums never sound as good as his live shows. This album should stop that criticism. In his fifth studio album, with minimal production, YES! delivers an experience that covers a variety of genres, yet is pure MRAZ.

With Raining Jane as the band, the acoustic sounds are complemented with beautiful harmonies (such as on the opening intro Rise) and unique instrumentation, such as the sitar, found in a few tracks, including the closing “opus" Shine.

Mraz wears positivity on his sleeve and this is throughout the album. You won’t find any heartbreak or sadness here - if his music seems overly optimistic, it’s likely on target. There aren’t a lot of songs on YES! with the rap-scat lyric witticisms that Mraz is known for. There also aren’t any groove tracks here - no Butterfly or Dynamo of Volition as found on his best selling We Sing We Dance We Steal Things. But there are a lot of great hooks that sound very natural. This is an album that calms - sounding like it wouldn’t be out of place in a hippie commune. Yet after a few more listens, it takes on its own life and purpose. One criticism would be that it often feels like it wants to go one step further but it always pulls back.

The lead-off songs were featured in a short 14 minute film (We Took The Long Way). Love Someone is standard Mraz fare, promoting the feeling of love. Hello You Beautiful Thing is an up-beat tune, with a tempo reminiscent of Mraz’s country duet with Hunter Hayes “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me”. Long Drive is a bass driven edgy track, discussing the desire to stay in the car rather than go home alone.

Everywhere is the one atypical song on the album, sounding more like a heavy driving pop-song, similar to ColdPlay’s La Vida Loca. While sounding slightly “stalkerish”, the lyrics sound more like Mraz trying to be the compounds that make up every item in the world, noting that “I’m Everywhere”.

Best Friend drones on a bit with the “Thank you for being …..” lyrics but the music in the bridge makes it worthwhile.

Quiet pontificates on the creep of city life into small towns, with a sound that wouldn’t sound out of place on a James Taylor album.

Out Of Your Hands, with a slight Celtic flavouring, finds Mraz simply accepting that when things go bad, you have to recognize when you can’t do anything else about it.

With an abundance of unreleased Mraz material, the inclusion of a cover of Boys II Men “So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday” feels a bit strange, despite its beautiful harmonies. It is almost a given that there will be a Deluxe version of YES!, which may include more of that other material.

Three Things has a fairly simplistic short positive message (there are only three things) but the chorus makes the song worthwhile.

You Can Rely On Me has more edge to it, showing a bit of acoustic country flair in its chorus.

Back to the Earth features an undeniable message promoting farming (a rooster sounds the call to arms) and nature but also has one of the more unforgettable melodies on the album. This song could be released as a single. It’s an ear worm song, because once heard, it’s hard to get out of your head and great to sing along to.

While most of the songs are about love and positivity, World With You is the standout slow love ballad, with a stripped down sound focused mostly on the lyrics and guitar.

With its pronounced sitar, Shine finishes the album, expounding the listener to “shine” on others. The track itself is slightly different than the rest of the album, sounding very Beatles-esque and more universal rather than personal.

Mraz and Raining Jane did a live concert where they performed the album in its entirety (most can be seen on YouTube). There are slight differences from the live sound but overall the album sounds exactly like the live show.

In an interview about the album, Mraz spoke about wanting the album to have an “arc”. YES! definitely has a feeling that goes throughout the entire album, delivering positivity and great music, while not pushing itself too far.


Well worth the wait - the first two songs are absolutely incredible. Cant wait to hear the whole thing!
