Product Description

Amazon.ca

Virginia exile Jason Mraz grew up listening to Dave Matthews and Agents of Good Roots, local heroes whose frat-friendly influences are much in evidence on his major-label debut. Producer John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer) augments Mraz's SoCal cohorts with Agents' rhythm section, dramatically expanding and polishing songs like "Curbside Prophet" and "You and I Both," which previously appeared in looser, less developed versions on Mraz's self-released live recordings. But fans from the singer-songwriter's coffeehouse years need not despair. Mraz's witty lyrics and easygoing folk-blues stylings (think Jack Johnson on Prozac) are still very much in evidence. He's also in fine voice and, on two standout tracks--"Who Needs Shelter" and "Absolutely Zero"--rivals Neil Finn in his ability to invoke the spirit of Paul McCartney. Waiting for My Rocket to Come showcases an artist who, while still finding his own direction, is clearly off to a great start. --Bill Forman

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to it again May 25 2003
By Kayla
Format:Audio CD
At first when i bought this CD, i listened and decided i didnt like many of the songs. But when i went back through and listened again, they all have amazing lyrics and melodies that are origanal and a little bit quirky. If you liked John Mayer, which i loved, you will like this album. My favorites include "Tonight, Not Again" , "Too Much Food" , On Love, In Sadness" , "Who Needs Shelter" .... pretty much the whole album! Give this new comer a try- you will like what you hear!

5.0 out of 5 stars Start spreading the Mraz! Oct. 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
Whatup Music Lovers,
This is the best new album and artist to hit the music scene in a while! Do you recall the upraise of artists like Jack Johnson and John Mayer these past couple years - well, in a matter of months JASON MRAZ is going to be on that list for sure. I personally like Jason's sound more than both John Mayer and Jack Johnson - and I've been a huge fan of both since day one. His music is just PURE BEAUTY, with an UNBELIEVABLE VOICE, a FUNNY and CONFIDENT stage presence, a CHARMING personality and guitar licks that will sooth any soul, Jason is a musician to love. I saw him open for Dave Matthews at the Gorge and, despite how amazing Waiting for My Rocket to Come is, his studio album will never do justice to his live performances. This album is a must have, and an even greater must is to see Jason live when he's anywhere near your hometown. I think in light of Tom Petty's new album, The Last DJ, he would join me in saying, "Finally, a talented musician who loves music a little bit more than money."

5.0 out of 5 stars I think I'm in love... Oct. 29 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can I say...after I saw Jason Mraz in concert, that was it - the moment I knew I had seen an amazing artist and I was in love. I really enjoy his music and can't wait to see him again. If you enjoy soulful music of one man and his guitar, you will enjoy Jason Mraz.

4.0 out of 5 stars WAITED over a year to...... Sept. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I had this album for over a year and this definitely had become my default music when I go to sleep and I ended up singing along instead. The lyrics are witty , which reminded me of BNL without the comical music and at the same time very heartwarming biography of Jason. It is like you travelled back with him from Mechanicsville,Va. to San Diego,Ca and watch as his career blossomed. Coupled that with his blog and there you go, he is your best cyberfriend now. The music are not really jewels but it is the words that makes you play this album again and again and again. So for Mrazters, hurray!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars I should have just burned the money July 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before purchasing this cd I read alot of reviews talking about how Jason Mraz was a combination of Dave Matthews and others. He is not. He's not even close. I think the only demographic that would enjoy his music are under 16 year old girls and people who think John Mayer is too deep for them. The first single "The Remedy" is the best song on the cd. Overall it's not a very impressive effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great July 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I really didn't even like "The Remedy" when it was getting lots of radio play, so what posessed me to pick up this CD I'll never know. But whatever it was, I wish I could thank it personally. I just love this CD, Mraz has an amazing voice and I love his personality as well. I'm not sure where some of those remarks that he was full of himself came from-- check out his journal on his website and you'll get a dose of his funny, sweet personality. Although it's a bit sugary at points Mraz's wonderful voice really makes up for it. And I'm not sure where those Dave Matthews/John Mayer comparisons came in....they really don't have much in common except a guitar and good voices. My favorite tracks are You and I Both, I'll Do Anything and Absolutely Zero. A must-buy, but DEFINITELY pick up his live CD, it's even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible artist! July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
We heard Jason Mraz on Austin City Limits 11/03, and I ran to the computer to order the CD. Upon the 1st listen, I was thrilled to have found a great new artist. The songs have hints of bluegrass, reggae, indie-pop, even a couple of rap riffs. Mraz reminds me of Sting with his almost poetry-like lyrics -- my favorite being "Are you in the mood for some dude, are you in the mood to be subdued...." He duplicates that interesting choice twist of words lin most (if not all) his songs. Add cool guitar and a bit of banjo (!), and you have a fascinating (and I hope long-lived) young, innovative artist. Listen closely to track 7, "Too Much Food"--great wordplay!

5.0 out of 5 stars A new songwriting wunderkind July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's funny -- I listen to Jason Mraz on my ITunes a lot. And it shocks me to see the "Play Count" for most of his songs heading into the 30s... 40s...50s...
How many songwriters craft tunes that seem to get better with every listen?
There's not much more for me to add here. Just echoing other people's admiration of this great new songwriter.
Having seen him at Disney Hall here in LA, I also really respect his chops as a performer. He makes it a point to connect with the audience as much as possible, and he's able to continuously re-invent his songs. Hope he keeps it up.
Favorite Mraz tunes (as of right now): Absolutely Zero, You and I Both, 1000 Things.
