Where have all the gay guys gone? muses MIKA in “Good Guys.” The whimsical pop star’s fourth album takes on the arduous task of paying homage to the grandeur of queer icons through pop ballads like “Last Party”—a tribute to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. In the process of confronting gayness and pop culture, MIKA even finds the time to inject upbeat hits like “Talk about You” that should help you dance off the tears.
