Jason Mraz - Geek In The Pink
Virginia-raised Mraz's first single from new album 'Mr. A-Z' falls somewhere inbetween the power-pop of Rob Thomas and the funk-jazz-pop of Maroon 5, via more inventive sorts like Beck, where the cross-over into hip-hop licks from pop-experimentalism has previously proved a success. Geek In The Pink potentially shares the same chart-friendly values as anything Maroon 5 released last year, therefore could drive the essentially ambitious pop-talent Mraz possesses to similar heights of received public enthusiasm. Unfortunately though, an over-indulgence in both studio-production and the occasional rapid rate of words-per-second do not compliment the more conventional pop methods he has used, in what could have been a decent single with admirable tongue-in-cheek lyrical ideas.
