This album takes the sounds you hear from a Mraz concert (the reggae hippiness vibe reminiscent of Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds) and reproduces it beautifully on vinyl, CD or however you are listening to it. The album definitely has that regge feel to it which makes it a great listen in certain environments, such as the beach or lounging around, but not so much in others. It’s not something you can listen to the whole thing in a car or all in one sitting unless you’re in the right mood. It needs the island environment or to be thrown into a mix of different music. While Look for the Good is the lead-off single, there is no single track that stands out as a breakthrough song. It may garner respect for its styling but is unlikely to gain newer fans outside of the reggae genre. As an album, Look For the Good delivers exactly what its goal is - the lyrics push you towards a better place and a better you. You feel better listening to it, a great accomplishment, just like how you feel coming out of a live Mraz concert. Some of the songs are updates to older live tunes (Good Old Daze, TimeOut), turning them on their ear from their acoustic origins yet they fit really well in this laid-back sound. The updated version of Take the Music (a bonus reggae-style track from an earlier album) still sounds as fresh as the original. Gratitude keeps Jason’s trend of a strong drawn out anthem at the end of the album. The entire band strengthens these tracks - the back of the CD notes “a reflection of Jason Mraz and Friends” - and that is how the album balances each sound from the drums, guitars to the horns. Certain tracks fall back into more of a typical Mraz skat style - DJ FM AM JSON stands out in this regard - but the bulk of album simply floats along, inoffensive and emanating positive messages and good vibes.
