Jason Mraz – Waiting For My Rocket To Come

Borne of the San Diego coffee shop scene, Mraz has an irrepressibly sunny disposition, even when his heart’s breaking. Throw in featherweight melodies and spurious ethnic splashes and you have a combination of exceptionally limited charm. There are overweening vocals, prosaic settings and a new low for the bleeding heart brigade on “Absolutely Zero”. Gruesome.
