  1. His third studio CD, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., includes pleasantly lightweight jams with beachy guitars (''Live High''), R&B horns (''Make It Mine''), even playful scat singing (''I'm Yours'').
  2. Jason Mraz emerges even bolder than before on an album loaded with strings, horns, formidable grooves and a dozen songs dripping with mantra-like positivity.
  3. The 30-year-old San Diegan makes another foray into sonic cross-pollination with heavy doses of polish and free-flowing energy on his third full-length studio album.
  4. The album is harmless fun, and the funky, groovy, hook-dominated tracks are impossible to hate.

    Pondering his parents divorce or describing intricate and delicate sex acts, Mraz's tasty tenor remains a modestly classy pleasure. But he's lost crucial cool. [June 2008, p.75]

    They all bed down with perfunctory efficiency as the voaclly gifted, lyrically vague Mraz holds court with a nylon-string guitar. [Feb 2009, p.112]

    Listening to this is like being followed home by a puppy--initially cute and guilelessly affecting, but rapidly irritating. [July 2008, p.104]

    If you don't like this album, you have no soul. The crazy part is how many people still don't know about him. Def worth checking out. Yes,If you don't like this album, you have no soul.

Yes, this review is late but I stumbled upon the CD lying in an old box and crap and just had to say something about it. All around feel good album. Expand

    This is one of the better albums I've heard this decade. Simply a feel good record that made me a fan of Mraz.

    What's wrong with being so positive? Especially when you're a wordsmith like Mraz.

    I like Mraz, but almost hated this derivative album. Not only heard Eminem in there, but also (gasp) Drake Bell?! Sounded like weak first I like Mraz, but almost hated this derivative album. Not only heard Eminem in there, but also (gasp) Drake Bell?! Sounded like weak first album. His sound present only on a few songs. Expand
