Bruno Mars, or Peter Gene Hernandez, who is known for his vocals and co-writing the hooks for the songs "Nothin' on You" by B.o.B, and "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy, as well as his own international number-one single "Just the Way You Are", has just released his debut album, Doo-Wops and Hooligans.

I heard his voice for the first time on "Billionaire" and was intrigued by its smoothness and effortlessness to hit the high notes. In some ways, his voice reminded me of Justin Nozuka's but with more of a soul flair. I was very curious to see what his own album would be like as I was only familiar with his music as a vocal accent to other artists' songs.
So without further ado, let's break down the album, track by track.
