Waiting for my Rocket to Come
Elektra / Wea - 2002
Artist: Jason Mraz
When I first heard "The Remedy (I won't worry)" on the radio I was hooked, I knew I had to hear more from this guy. I bought the CD and plugged it in the car, turned it up. I was not disappointed. The opening track "You and I Both" is a perfect starter, and the first clear example of fine production quality, as well as the talent of this guitar-strumming singer-songwriter.
This CD is by far one of the best I've ever heard. The songs are fun, and each has a unique appeal, weaving a wonderfully entertaining path through a variety of musical styles from rock, jazz, pop, reggae and soul.
Since purchasing this CD I have played it many times, and have yet to grow tired of the instrumentation or lyrics, in fact, many times when I listen, I let it start right back at the beginning and play through again.
I highly recommend this CD to any serious collector of fine rock, pop, and then some, music. Mraz has set the stage with excellent melodies, impressive vocal dynamics and above all, music that makes you think, love and live. Bravo!
