The Boy

Overview

Produced by Mika and Greg Wells (Katy Perry, P!nk), The Boy Who Knew Too Much is the highly anticipated follow-up to 2007's Life in Cartoon Motion, which sold over 5 million copies worldwide. The new album features guest contributions by Imogen Heap and Final Fantasy's Owen Pallett, and contains the brilliant first single "We Are Golden."

The Boy Who Knew Too Much straddles a line between childish naïvete and world-worn sophistication; Mika likens this transformation as the shift from childhood and Life in Cartoon Motion's innocence to something more akin to adolescence. As such, the songs on The Boy Who Knew Too Much are ebulliently bold, embracing the mysteries, melodramas, adrenaline and vitality of one’s teenage years to startling affect. From the Label

I discovered Mika recently and fell in love with this CD. The boy who knew too much is the perfect blend of piano and orchestral with pop. Mika second Album doesn't diplease at all. I definetly reccomend this CD.

This is so original, fun, exciting, moving, ect. It's really great. I'm not sure if its better than his first CD but I was not disappointed. Its darker than the first CD definitely but I could listen to "We Are Golden" all day. Mika is my go to artist to perk me up. Its great. A bit different but I dare you to listen and not smile or reflect on the words.
