Life in Cartoon Motion

$10.00 Released March, 2007

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Wide range of emotions represented. Perfect for fans of Elton John and Queen. Album as a whole is easy to listen to from beginning to end.

This is the first album by Mika, a new pop British recording artist. Mika's voice is reminiscent of Freddie Mercury of Queen and tracks on Life in Cartoon Motion have the feel of 1970s pop and disco.

Erik: #life_in_cartoon_motion I just checked out his MySpace page. "Grace Kelly" is like a cross between Queen and Scissor Sisters. Interesting, but I don't think my cup of tea. Definitely not worthy of the horrible reviews. Apr 25, 07

ruthers: #life_in_cartoon_motion The one song I've listened to is "Grace Kelly" which is pretty good. I haven't really listened to the other songs yet. Apr 25, 07
