[NEW RELEASES] Mika
But with “The Boy Who Knew Too Much,” there’s so much more to talk about than the artist’s preferences.
This follow-up amplifies the spirit that buoyed his debut, cranking out catchy tunes that, at their best, channel the spirit of Freddie Mercury.
More leisurely offerings - which are therefore less fun - borrow inspiration from Broadway solos and piano lounge acts.
But what’s most immediately apparent on this album is Mika’s newfound interest in rhythm, with strong beats that embolden spirited tracks like “Blame It On the Girls” and “Touches You.” This update suggests that perhaps, with a remix or two, my Mika dance parties could relocate from my living room to the club.
