Album Review

Jason Mraz's Waiting for My Rocket to Come is a two-part invention. The first level is that of a young, almost compelling, singer/songwriter. Mraz has a nice voice, perhaps a little too articulated at times, which manages to mostly avoid the histrionic despite a predilection towards show tuney melodic turns. His voice tumbles out on top of folk-reggae rhythms that will probably sound a bit dated with time, but his vocals are filled with enough internal rhythms and rhymes to keep them interesting. Lyrically, Mraz relies on cliché to a certain degree, but does so with an earnestness that allows for believability and an eye for imagery that succeeds often enough to suggest that he knows what he's doing. The second level of Waiting for My Rocket to Come is the production of John Alagía, whose work has enhanced other similar folk-pop fair, including the Dave Matthews Band and O.A.R. His work with Mraz is, at its best, transparent, filling out the songs with subtle and glossy production and instrumentation. Reflections of banjos, organs, mellotrons, lap steels, ukuleles, and others peak out through the shine of the tunes, creating an impact too rich to be written off as lite.

Customer Reviews

What a great singer/songwriter!

As you can probably tell by my name I am huge Jason Mraz fan. Jason Mraz is probably one of the best singers I have ever heard. He just has a voice that is so different and it is just so refreshing. It's nice to hear someone who doesn't sound like everyone else. I like music artists who can sound good on both the record and live, and Jason is one person who is absolutely great at both. I haven't had a chance to see him live, but I am hoping one day that I do. I have a ton of his live recordings and he just sounds magnificent. One song I particularly like to hear live is 'Tonight, Not again.' He can hit a music note in that song that many singers can't achieve and I get goose-bumps every time I hear him sing it. Although I love this entire album, I will recommend a few of my favorites and they are: The Remedy (I Won't Worry) [This is his best song ever] You and I Both Who Needs Shelter Curbside Prophet (also check the 'Curbside Prophet '04' version on the New York Minute soundtrack, that one is also really good) Sleep All Day & Tonight, Not Again Those are my favorite ones. Buy this album today, you will not be dissapointed!

One of the Best Debuts I've Heard.

Jason Mraz mixes folksy melodies ('Curbside Prophet') and his make-your-head-spin vocals ('The Remedy') (Two of his best works) to create a debut worthy of all the attention, if not more, its gotten. If you're a fan of early John Mayer material, this is the stuff for you.
