CD Review – Mika – The Boy Who Knew Too Much

July 2, 2010 at 8:48 am | Posted in Music, Reviews | Leave a comment

What a fantastic piece of music this CD is.

I loved this from start to finish – reminds me so much of the 80’s band ERASURE, who had hits like ‘Oh L’Amour’ and ‘A Little Respect’.

Mika’s latest CD – The Boy Who Knew too Much follows his debut album ‘Life in Cartoon Motion’ which sold 6 million copies.

‘We are Golden’ is the lead single on the disc. His hit ‘Rain’ was also sung at the 2009 Royal Variety Show. There are also feature guest inputs from Imogen Heap, Owen Pallet, Stuart Price and Arcade Fire.

There is really a big influence on the CD from pop albums from the 80’s and 90’s.  It is an eclectic piece of work, a cross between pop and disco. Well worth listening to if you like this sort of music.
