I didn't think Bruno would ever make an album this top-notch... not because he's not talented enough, because he clearly
is, but because I never thought he'd just go for it with so little worry about current pop trends. One of my favorite
things about this album is that the songs don't feel at all overproduced to fit onto pop radio in 2016, and instead are given
exactly the treatment they need to shine as lasting gems. Respect.

Uptown Funk was a warning. 24K Magic is a torrent of funk and soul, throwbacks, not steeped in nostalgia but taking the right cues from MJ - and it's got the carefree attitude this abysmal year needs to end onrmay you all be #blessed by this beautiful collection of tunes

Bruno Mars subverts all negative connotation associated with his name with one of the most straight rup energetic, fun, and over-the-top cheesy throwback records released all decade. Mars' level of self rawareness that his songwriting is incredibly dorky plays in perfectly with the vintage cheese the ralbum aesthetic pushes here. Production isn't grossly overproduced and instead is veryrgrounded despite the very cheesy narrative the album pushes. Stuffed with dorky lines and psuedo-rconfidence that succeeds thanks to the energy that Bruno gives each note. Ignore any and all rnegative opinions you have on Bruno's work and just indulge on one of the best pop records of the ryear. rSpin: 24k Magic, Chunky, Thats What I Like, Versace On The Floor, Calling All My Lovelies, Finesse, rToo Good To Say Goodbye

Amazing pop record, would be a 9 if they put the Finesse Remix instead of the garbage normal versionr

3.0 goodGoldenGuy444 | November 12th 20

About half great half dull as hell. It's good but once again Bruno Mars is at his best in his singles, and on autopilot elsewhere.

Bump

3.0 goodYRI | July 1st 20

Bruno Mars developes an amazing sound, too bad he doesn't change it up anytime on this album.

Bump

3.5 greatErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | October 9th 19

Hey that was fun! In the end he's just replicating what greats have already done, but this is some funky shit. Kudos for the length, 33 min is perfect for such music. 3.3

Bump

3.0 goodLeedleleedle | May 17th 17

definitely a fan. The influences are worn on his sleeve, but the respect he gives to the source material. There is a stretch of weak, slow tracks towards the end, but a good project.

Bump

4.5 superbrunaways | January 8th 17

Pure pop perfection. Bruno Mars's 20/20 Experience. In a year where every pop album was many tracks too long (Views, Starboy, The Life of Pablo), Bruno instead opts for a short album with no filler. While the album probably won't top the pop charts the way his previous efforts, it's hard to deny that this is Bruno's best effort yet. rBest Tracks: Calling All My Lovelies, That's What I Like, Versace on the Floor

Bump

0.0 Finn Baker | December 11th 16

Damn! I honestly didn't expect a pop album to get to me like 24K Magic did. Bruno Mars moves past the sappy love songs and ballads that he had on his debut, and takes the jazzy, hip elements of Unorthodox Jukebox even further. The song Calling All My Lovelies even shows his approach to humor, changing his voice for the song, and using the line "Alicia waiting, Aisha waiting, all the -isha's waiting on me".
It's not quite meant to impress you or blow you away. But it does one hell of a job at entertaining you.

Bump

3.0 goodnukethewhale | December 7th 16

All the ballads/slower tracks sound like songs I've heard a million times before. 24K Magic is bitchin tho.

Bump

4.0 excellentcavalrycaptain | December 2nd 16

This album is so much fun. Mars is clearly trying to replicate the success of Uptown Funk, but nothing here seems clearly derivative of that. Instead, the album is a tight collection of throwback jams pulling from several decades and influences like James Brown and Midnight Star. It's also incredibly funny when Mars tries to act like a sex god (i.e., "Versace on the Floor"). Overall, pretty solid album.

Bump

3.5 greatTheSupernatural | November 29th 16

24K Magic is a fun and superficial experience with great funky music and some fairly cringeworthy lyrics. "You need to activate your sexy," and, "Fellas grab your ladies if your lady fine," probably aren't the greatest lines ever written

Bump

1.5 very poor3waycrash | November 23rd 16

Uptown Funk: The Album. Instrumentally it sounds like something I would enjoy; it's just Bruno Mars himself that I cannot bring myself to like.

Bump

4.0 excellentdihstyle69 | November 22nd 16

i'm so wowed by this release. i never really enjoyed bruno's early work, mainly because his lyrics were absolutely sappy and cringy af and the production itself was just your typical mainstream ballad bs. here, bruno continues to embrace that funky sound we first heard with the incredible uptown funk and honestly, this sound works 100% in his favor. the lyrics are more well thought out as well and the vocals are simply amazing when they need to be. one of the best pop albums of 2016. 4-

Bump

3.5 greatiGuter | November 17th 16

Since featuring as the lead vocal in Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk", Bruno Mars has finally gotten to see the potential he's had focusing on a Motown style sound that's in every way great.

Bump

4.5 superbPatientlyDead | November 16th 16

Will eventually give this a proper review as im listening to the full album as i type
this. sounds fantastically energetic and funky! Love it!

Bump
