Jason Mraz – Know. Reaction

Community Rating0 Votes

If coffee shop music had an official representative it would have to be Jason Mraz. Those shops are ironically where he first broke through and he’s been making that same type of pleasant yet unassuming music ever since. Know. is just his latest entry into the uber positive niche he’s carved out for himself. He cranks the good vibes to an 11 and keeps it there for the entirety of the project. Maybe he truly believes in the power of love and positivity but after just a few songs in you can’t help but feel a bit sickly from the overdose of sweetness. Too much of anything can be a bad thing and without a look at the other side of the coin his messages can come off as inconsequential figments of an unrealistic world. My cynical side aside though, it is all a generally pleasant listen that reminds of a great summer day. It’s just something I’d have to take in small doses.

Daughtry does just enough, thanks in large part to the vocals, to keep Cage to Rattle from being a complete skip, but the margin isn't large.
Dirty Projectors' latest is a bright, airy listen that may go overboard with some of its sappy love proclamations but still remains an infectious and wildly imaginative listen nonetheless.
The fact that Father John Misty can carry such a musically stripped down album with not much more than his vocals and some superb songwriting should say it all. It's a stand out.

Well here’s to the hearts that you’re gonna break
Here’s to the lives that you’re gonna change
Here’s to the infinite possible ways to love you
I want you to have it

– “Have It All”
