Bruno Mars fully delivers on his sophomore album, though it is darker and contains more sexual content. However, you can never find one track on the album that sounds the same. Mars creates fantastic beats that will be stuck in your head for days. From the 80's sound of tracks like Moonshine, to the semi-dubstep vide of Money Make Her Smile, the reggae vibe of Show Me, and the soulful ballad When I Was Your Man, you go on a complete musical adventure over the course of album. Parents should be aware of extreme sexual content on the track 'Gorilla', which describes in detail a rather wild night fueled by alcohol. The album does contain curse words, but it is mild and limited to only 3 tracks, which only use the words once (except Gorilla, which is by far the most explicit track on the album). The album also contains some positive messages, primarily about Bruno regretting not helping the girl which he loves the most. It can teach a lesson of the value of true love and not to physical items over the power of love (which doesn't have to be spousal love, but also family). Overall, Unorthodox Jukebox is an amazing record with some darker messages.
