Jason Mraz – Love Is a Four Letter Word [Album]
Jason Mraz is an American singer-songwriter who has achieved international success. His hit single “I’m Yours” spent 76 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. On April 13, 2012, he released his latest album, Love Is a Four Letter Word. The deluxe version of the album costs $14.99, but contains 18 tracks, making it a bargain.
The album has a good mix of tracks. Some songs, like “The Freedom Song,” “The Woman I Love,” and “The World As I See It” have an intoxicating groove characteristic of Mraz. Other songs, like “I Won’t Give Up” and “In Your Hands” are slow and tender. Every song though, regardless of the mood, is well crafted and catchy. “Everything Is Sound” will probably be stuck in your head for quite a while.
Love Is a Four Letter Word also features some fairly diverse instrumentation. If you were expecting a great deal of acoustic songs, you will be surprised. The tracks feature not just the obligatory acoustic guitar, but also some electric guitar, drums, keyboard, organ, even a little mandolin. These diverse instruments all come together to produce a unified and well-mixed sound. And of course, Mraz’s voice is as smooth as ever, and his lyrics just as infectious. At $15 for 18 tracks, each as good as the last, the deluxe version is certainly worth picking up. Get your copy now.
