Yes! Review


Jason Mraz has is back with his fifth Studio Album entitled “Yes!” on Atlantic Records. The 14-track album is said to have a more acoustic, intimate sound. The lead single, “Love Someone”, was released on May 19, 2014, with Mraz performing an acoustic version of the song for Time. Like Mraz’s previous albums, “YES!” is cheerfully optimistic, as evidenced by the single, “Love Someone.” But the real standouts are the more introspective tracks, like the cello-driven “You Can Rely on Me” and the downbeat “A World With You.” Mraz doesn’t avoid amorous clichés so much as he shamelessly embraces each and every one, addressing songs to a lover who is also his best friend and a “beautiful thing,” celebrating long drives and quiet times with the one he loves. Such subjects are a clear indication that Yes! is not a record fueled by the heady rush of love at first sight; it’s an album designed to soundtrack a long getaway weekend for a couple already in love. Following the release of this Album, his “Yes!” World Tour is set for August to start in San Diego and will hopefully make it to a City near you.
