  feel good dance along sing along album

| | See all albertIIjr's reviews (459)

this is a very entertaining album that immediately plugs into your head, willing or not: you'll be singing along before you know it.
also this album contains a lot of songs you'll recognize from your radio because of the airplay and little hype he got arranged
you can like mika or not, his typical voice, theatrical songstructures, the queen-impersonator thing, .... whatever: there's a lot of panache in it for a first album. and it's just fun fun fun so my humble advice would be: don't try to explain it otherwise and enjoy.

I think MIKA is great, at first like some others, i was unsure about him and found his music a tad on the annoying side.
However, it has really grown on me. I got a few of the songs in my head and searched for him on Youtube and listened to some of his songs at length. It began to really appeal to me as they are uplifting and unique.

He reminds me of Freddie Mercury and the Scissor Sisters in one package. Mika has an amazing voice, he sounds fantastic low and fantastic high. I think that his music is wonderful, but before buying the album i suggest that you search his music, to make sure you like it. From observation i have learnt that people in general, love or hate his music.

I personally love it and highly recommend the album, especially if you have had a rough week.

  Fresh and fun

I usually try to avoid today's pop/chart music. But Mika is so fun I can't help loving him and his debut album. He is a talented singer, unlike many today, a talented musician, unlike many today, and writes his own songs, unlike many today. Comparisons to Freddie Mercury are with good reason, I think.

  Brilliant album!!!!!!! Weird but different!!!

Full respect to Mika!!!!! This album is top quality, including some of his greatest hits. Brit nominated, Very impressive and a real break to todays music style. Definitely original. But a must have in every music collection. Add some variety.

everyone was saying it was brilliant..so i got it..the songs that he has released are very good but the other songs on the album are not very good at all and i found them very hard to listen to.

  Not for everyone

This albums one of mixed reviews...If you loved Grace Kelly then you will love the album - it very much sets the tone for the album and if you do then not one of the songs will disappont. However i can see how, like myself, people will not like this, its definately not for everyone, i'd suggest listening to one or two songs first before buying.
