Though I love Jason Mraz and find his song-writing to be clever and top-notch, this album was a bit of a disappointment. The songs included on this disc are much, much better live; there is a severe rash of overproduction on this CD and no topical cream can treat that disease. Some songs, like "Wordplay" and "Did You Get My Message," are luminescent, while the rest of them are much better live. While it's probably worth owning for any die-hard Mraz fan, check out "Live at Eagles Ballroom," for a different, "Mraz-ier" sound.

I bought this thinking it would be as good as his debut album...it's got its moments, but for the most part, the songs aren't as fresh-sounding.
