Mika, 'Life in Cartoon Motion' (Casablanca/ Universal Republic)

7
Life in Cartoon Motion
Critical Mass
Label: Casablanca/ Universal Republic

by Barry Walters

From the Beatles at their campiest to Scissor Sisters at their catchiest, this Lebanon-born Londoner comes on like an agreeably eager compendium of every gay and gay-ish pop act of the past 40 years. Sometimes he veers too close to his source material and surrenders to sap (check the Robbie Williams-sucking "Erase," with its fleeting rip of the Cranberries' "Zombie"), but mostly this U.K.-chart-topping magpie makes good with bountiful tunes and Broadway vocal dazzle that could slay even the High School Musical crowd.
