Dem Vinyl Boyz EP 19 - Unorthodox Jukebox -


Them Vinyl Boyz are back again and this week they’re dropping the needle on a record that dropped nearly ten years ago ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ by Bruno Mars. Listening to his second album, you can clearly see why this gifted, well-rounded artist is so successful; the most famous thing out of Hawaii since Barack Obama and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. There’s a free-spirited attitude that balances the album’s ambitions. Despite similarities to Adam Levine and Gavin DeGraw, lyrically talented artists who also use a watered-down form of retro soul as the foundation for their mediocre pop-rock, Mars is the more talented vocalist. His sophomore album signals a move from street-side troubadour irrelevance to a bigger, stadium-filling sound. Much of the credit should be given to a trio of new collaborators—including superstar-grade producers Mark Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, and Diplo. The album reached Number one on the Billboard top 200 and sold nearly nine million copies.
