Mika 's vivid, aptly named debut album, Life in Cartoon Motionborrows and builds on the glittery, glamorous, and not-so-secretly sentimental musical territory carved out by Elton John and Freddie Mercuryor more recently, Rufus Wainwright and the Scissor Sisters. Fortunately, his name-dropping, shape-shifting pop is usually good, and genuine, enough to come across as eloquent homage rather than blatant thievery or Beautiful (Third Seal) - HIM - In Joy And Sorrow tired rehash.
Mika 's singles are his most charming moments, especially the instant sunshine of "Grace Kelly," which crams tap-dancing rhythms, filmic dialogue, Elton 's pianos, Freddie 's vocal harmonies, and Brian May 's guitars into just over three minutes. As Life in Cartoon Motion unfolds, it reveals more of Mika 's musical identity, both for better Ring Ring - MIKA - Live In Cartoon Motion (DVD) worse. His classical piano training gives the album an appealing fluidity, especially on "Any Ring Ring - MIKA - Live In Cartoon Motion (DVD) World," and lilting, Afro-pop-inspired guitars and harmonies pop up here and there, most effectively on "Big Girl You Are Beautiful.
On songs like "Lollipop" and بكرا بيبرم دولابك = Bokra Byobrom Doulabeck - جورج وسوف, راغب علامة - Best Of Wassouf & Ragheb Today," Mika straddles the line between adorable and annoying.
And as the overly long, overwrought "Erase" shows, he also doesn't have quite the masterful touch with gentler songs that his influences possess. As admirable as Life in Cartoon Motion 's eclecticism is, it could use more focus -- something that songs like the jaunty breakup song "Stuck in the Middle" and angry rocker "Ring Ring" suggest Mika is developing.
