Bruno Mars Unorthodox Jukebox

I was very excited to receive this album for review!! Bruno Mars is a talented singer songwriter and it was proven from his first album's success.

Unorthodox Jukebox is the second studio album by him and by now I'm sure everyone would have heard the addictive lead single, "Locked Out of Heaven" which was a commercial and critical success, topping the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for four consecutive weeks and charting inside the top ten in more than twenty countries across the world! It was first performed live at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

What's with that Gorilla picture? LOL and there's even a soundtrack in the album named, 'Gorilla' 

All 10 songs were written by Bruno Mars and the album finishes in a brisk 34 minutes. My favourite would definitely be 'Locked out of heaven' together with 'Natalie', 'Gorilla' and 'Money make her Smile' coz of the catchy tunes. The mellow ballad like Moonshine was pretty good and soothing as well!

This is a more grown up record unleashing his inner bad boy, talking about girls and sexual content. It kinda follows from the same ballads from the first album which was proven a huge success.

Bruno has a vintage style. This album all around have a very 80s feel. It's pop music with a soothing rhythm.
Overall a very enjoyable record and I could hear it over and over again =)

If you're a fan of Bruno Mars and the first album, this one would be appealing!!
