    I will admit, UPTOWN FUNK was the ONLY reason I purchased it and STILL play!!!! GIVES MADNESS!!! However, there are MANY jewels in this musical chest. You can tell that, with Mark, musical influences from the 70's & 80's played a part in his musical life. You can hear it all over, which was another draw here. Another one was the guest performers. Outside of Bruno Mars, there's Mystikal, Keyone Starr, Kevin Parker, Andrew Wyatt, Jeff Bhasker, and the one and only Stevie Wonder. Thow all these musical talents, whether you've heard of them or not, in a box, shake well, and you get a awesome fallout of genres gone by. TOTALLY LOVED THIS PROJECT!!!

    Every Track A Winner

    I'm in my early 60's and I love this record. Over the years I've listened to MANY artists and MANY albums. To get an idea how good this record is, consider that "Uptown Funk" (the Grammy winner) is not the strongest track here. Mark Ronson has been a producer for much of the newest trends in music, but this record takes music from "back in the day" and updates it into a modern soulful pop sound that is almost like a "concept album" - all the tracks function together, in this case to get you into your smooth urban night life. Spotify...then buy!

    Mark Ronson Travels Back in "Time"

    Another solid album from Mark Ronson filled with carefully chosen guests and excellent songwriting. While most know the lead single featuring Bruno Mars the rest of the album is worth a listen as well. This picks up where his previous album "Version" left off, only instead of '60's soul-era reimaginings this album features all original music and the vibe is more funk oriented. Think "The Time" or "Kool & the Gang" Highly recommended for fans of classic R&B.

    I purchased this Mark Ronson CD for the song "Uptown Funk" and was pleasantly surprised that the rest of the CD, with the exception of song 3 which is very explicit and unneeded, were just as driving, rhythmic and ear catching as "Uptown Funk". Vocals are easily understood and well recorded and the balance of instrumentation is exact and not bass heavy. It is a nice homage to the funk era with a more modern approach and a varied music style.

    Love the hit Uptown Funk featuring Bruno Mars, and I read a very positive review for this album so I bought it the first day it came out. I love Best Buy's order on-line/ pick up at local store for free. I bought the CD for an old school friend of mine who loves Bruno Mars. She listens to CD's in her car. The only other song that I like is the raunchy Feel Right, but the lyrics are filthy.

    Mark Ronson is a talented musician who produced the best tracks by late singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse. Here Ronson writes and plays music but he calls on other talents like Bruno Mars for vocals. The great surprise is hearing Stevie Wonder's harmonica solo on the opening track. Highly recommended.

    So I thought I would give it a try just based on the one song I had heard before buying it (Uptown Funk). This CD was a great purchase and takes you on a musical journey through various styles of funk, hip hop and R&B.

    Don't put this cd on if you don't feel like moving! This will definetely get you out of a bad mood. Bruno Mars is my favorite artist, so the fact that he did Uptown Funk just tickled me to death.
