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

So awake!

All your music has a very clear progression and as I have bought all your albums I can see how you have grown not just musically, but personally. The lyrics in this album are just stunning and should connect with anyone that hears what you are really singing about. The key to a happy life and living life to the fully are so woven into your new music. I can't wait to get out walking on a hill with this music, for it to fill my soul with the understanding written into this music. Amazing work and so up-lifting. Deepest of thanks.
Peace and Love to everyone!

Brilliant!

amazing...as usual! Can't wait till December to see him do it all live.

Mraz is a four letter word...

Ok, so I love Jason Mraz. For me, the most under-rated singer-songwriter in the business, he writes sublime songs of happiness and positivity. What a voice - try singing along and you'll soon get stuck following his effortless licks. His live tracks are even better than the studio recordings - which are amazing. If you've only ever heard 'I'm Yours', give the rest of his work a try - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
