We gave it an B+

Out of the mellow folk-pop dudes who’ve surfed to stardom on Jack Johnson’s wave, Jason Mraz may be the most entertaining, since he’d rather crack a joke than ruminate on life and stuff. (When he mentions Jesus, it’s in the same verse as ”a party getting started in the yard.”) His third studio CD, We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things., includes pleasantly lightweight jams with beachy guitars (”Live High”), R&B horns (”Make It Mine”), even playful scat singing (”I’m Yours”). Of special note is ”Lucky,” Mraz’s bubbly duet with Colbie Caillat, which should have girls swooning all summer long. B+
