    Although many of the tunes are undeniably - you might even say playfully - derivative, this is a brilliantly entertaining album. Each track is a gem and a pleasure to listen to over and over again. Bruno Mars is this generation's Billy Joel.

    Best... The elements with this album contains pop, rock, r&b, reggae and all. PERFECT!!! 10 songs isn't enough with this entertaining pop album. Vocals are great. Uptempo beats are awesome and breath-taking. Some comparisons to Michael Jackson, Kanye West, U2 and Colplay. Bruno Mars debut album is an entertaining product of 2010.

    Brilliant and light-hearted album. Bruno Mars deserves all the attention he gets, no offense to the people that have ridiculously rated the album "0".

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is one of the best records I've heard this year. Bruno Mars shows in Doo-Wops & Hooligans he is not the guy from Nothin' on You and Billionaire and he delivers an excelent album full of 10 great songs.

    The best songs are: ALL

    Doo-Wops & Hooligans was a very good debut record. Mars knows what the public wants to hear, and that is exactly what he gives us. Now I can just hope he can grow as an artist on his second album.

    Mostly, he has little to say. [Mar 2011, p.109]

    What makes this a really exciting debut, however, is the Kanye West-style genre-bending on Grenade, The Other Side and Our First Time, which joins the dots between between Michael Jackson and Bob Marley.

    Aside from the odd pervy foray however, Doo-Wops & Hooligans is a fairly impressive pop record; packed full of guaranteed arena fillers, it's an album that's literally born to be big.
