What the critics thought:

"His talent for crafting little pop perfections of all stripes is undeniable."
- Entertainment Weekly

"The result is a record that makes the competition sound sad and idea-starved by comparison."
- Rolling Stone

"Sounds like Bruno Mars is trying to rough up his image a bit on his strong, if sometimes oddly lyrically aggressive, second album."
- Boston Globe

"Too bad it's a step back from Doo-Wops in so many ways, leaving people who saw promise in his debut shaking their heads in disappointment and hoping Mars can sort out his feelings about women and get back to being a sweet romancer, instead of an icky hater."
-All Music Guide

"It's appealing, generally engaging and all shot through with the confidence of a man who must feel he's got the hit parade Midas touch."
- BBC Music

"His highly anticipated sophomore album succeeds in mixing its safer stylistic choices with its relatively bold ideas."
- Billboard.com
