Rating: 3/5

Current chart-topping pop star Bruno Mars' debut album includes hits Grenade, with its rousing Shakira-style beats, and the ballad boogie of Just the Way You Are. While it could do with a few more old school doo-wops and outbreaks of hooligan behaviour to make it more potent, because his voice is mostly light and cutesy, this guy has got something going on with his catchy and effortless pop gems.
