50 Favorite Albums: 31
Of course, he's here now. If you take a listen to Jason Mraz's most recent album, Yes!, and then go back and listen to his debut album (a trend we're keeping up right now, apparently!), Waiting for My Rocket to Come, you can hear distinct differences that bookended his musical evolution. I guess, while waiting for his soul rocket to come, he dabbled in rap a little bit more. At least, that's what it seemed like he was trying to do. There was a definite Mechanicsville niche that could be heard in some of the music that was kind of hip pop, if you will. Mraz was underusing his talents, but he was still performing at a very high level. You and I Both and Absolutely Zero both showed shades of what his musical style would become, while Curbside Prophet assured everyone would remember what that style used to be.
