POP

After a demo of "I'm Yours," the first single off Jason Mraz's third studio album, appeared on a 2005 EP, the song became a YouTube sensation, inspiring a slew of user-submitted videos. A breezy folk-pop ditty that should make Jack Johnson jealous, it's pretty impossible to resist. The rest of this disc, despite its mess of a title, goes by smoothly too. Mraz, a real pop craftsman, makes it sound easy, seamlessly weaving jazz and funk into Jamiroquai-esque cuts like "Butterfly," and folk, soul and gospel into the uplifting "Live High."
