Mika - The Boy Who Knew Too MuchEngland’s flamboyant pop divo shot to fame in 2007 with Life in Cartoon Motion, his coming-of-age themed debut which sold five million copies worldwide. Mika, now 23, calls this his “adolescent” followup, covering his late teens with songs like the shouty anthem “We Are Golden.” There’s a giddy, irrepressible energy to tracks like the cabaret-ish “Dr. John” and the disco-like “Blame It on the Girls.” But, too often, Mika sinks under the weight of his penchant for campy Elton John/Freddie Mercury-style bombast.
