Cautionary Wife Posted February 18, 2007 Share Posted February 18, 2007 Spotted a couple of small reviews in magazines.... OK! MAGAZINE 13 Feb 07 REVIEWS: MUSIC With a collection of discotastic tracks Mika's here to stay. MIKA LIFE IN CARTOON MOTION Who? A few weeks ago, no one had heard of this curly locked darling. Now, thanks to his No.1 hit, Grace Kelly, he's the biggest sensation since, er, Sandi Thorn. How's it sound? Campy geniuses Queen to the Scissor Sisters may have paved the way for Mika, but we can't deny his originality. Fusing his classical operatic background with forward-thinking, off-centre pop gives Mika a sound that feels both retro and futuristic. The signature falsetto present on Grace Kelly's starred(?) on both Relax, Take It Easy and the stripped bare string ballad Any Other World, while My Interpretation is radio-friendly, jangly fare that the likes of Take That have excelled in. Verdict: A rainbow-coloured treat.
