Butterfly. Thatâ€™s my ultimate favourite Jason Mraz track â€¦like EVER! So now that I had to review the brand new Jason Mraz compilation called â€śLove is a four letter wordâ€ť I knew it was never gonna be a difficult task, although somewhere at the back of my medulla oblongata I had set that â€śButterfly standardâ€ť
This CD is one of those easy on the ear feel good type discs. You know that afternoon cruise around Campsbay Beach on a lazy 28 degreeÂ feelgood kinda Sundays? Yeah, those kind
Love is a four letter word has 12 tracks and includes I wonâ€™t give up. This album is a breath of fresh air in an age of noise and cussing and cursing and tons of aggravation. Itâ€™s almost as if Jason is sayingÂ â€śHey guys letâ€™s bring love the old school way back againâ€ť. And heâ€™s right, weâ€™ve not heard anyone say or sing that in a while to be honest, or maybe we just donâ€™t hear enough artists saying that anymore.
What I like about Mraz is that this new album is made using only recyclable produce and he is also big on the green thinking thing. Maybe this is why he didnâ€™t go the traditional plastic hard cover with blister pack rounding it off route. Nice one Jason! It even says the package is printed on 100% recycled stock.
The album transports you all over and without giving away too much you would love this if youâ€™re a fan of easy listening or even traditional rock. Itâ€™s a good buy and will make the perfect gift for a loved one.
After having the CD in my car and playing it at home a few times it seems (for now) that track number 5 is my favourite. Itâ€™s a tune called 5/6. There is a track called Frank D. Fixer where he sings of his grand dad and it almost has a Simon and Garfunkel sound to it
The songs on Jason Mrazâ€™s Love is a four letter word are:
The freedom song
- Living in the moment
- The woman I love
- I wonâ€™t give up
- Everything is sound
- 93 million miles
- Frank D Fixer
- Whoâ€™s thinking about you now?
- In your hands
- Be honest (feat. Inara George)
- The world as I see it
All in all a good mood CD and especially if youâ€™reÂ a fan of his work, you will love this album!
Oh by the way, watch out for the hidden track after track 12
