All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Bruno Mars was riding high when his first album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, was released in 2010.

    What a talent!

    I love this CD so much it is unbeleivable. One of the few CDs that I can listen to straight through without skipping over songs. Bruno Mars is really a great talent who I hope sticks around a long time. Very deserving of his Grammy nominations.

    When I heard the song just the way you are on the radio and I found out bruno mars sings that song I had the check out this album to see what bruno mars is like. Bruno mars is an excellent singer with very good talent, all of his songs on this cd are fun to listen to and are relaxing when having a bad day.
