Bruno Mars is a musical renaissance man with an ear for current trends and fluent in old-school methods of songwriting and production. "Just the Way You Are," "Talking to the Moon," and "Our First Time" are suave slices of R&B/pop with finely-honed hooks. Stretching out further, he dives into a ’60-style soul rave-up (“Runaway Baby”), has a fling with classic summertime pop (“Marry You”), and delivers an anthemic ballad with the album's biggest hit, "Grenade." Mars handles the instrumental duties as well as the lead vocals, bringing a unified feel to this eclectic and delightful album.
