Fresh, yet familiar. AND fun! This album marks the return of the master musician to doing what he does best. Take your time with these 12 tracks, let them grow on you. My favourites at the moment are the catchy 'Helpless', the thought-provoking 'In The Blood', and the poignant 'You're Gonna Live Forever In Me'. But I love the remaining ones too. This might be a break-up album, but the sound is upbeat and hopeful. Life's like that. Thank you, John Mayer.
Probably his best work since Continuum. Never ceases to impress with his willingness to bet the farm on his musical convictions. A vastly maligned individual, John Mayer the musician transcends the banality of his generation with his ability to create sensitive, sincere melodies with wonderful harmonies. I've been a fan for a while. This album strengthens that.bond
John's extrinsic look into his life is very authentic and culminates itself into an album that combines elements of all of his previous works. Though some of the lyrics are cliche at best, Mayer for almost all of this album is the transcendence of human emotion, and the way I feel listening to this album is worth 5 stars any day of the week.
~ L♥VE ~ Every word in John's songs remind me of myself &/or descriptions of my "dreams" & this to me is a beautiful thing! I'm a person who suffers from helps me recognize that I am just like the rest of the world .. THANKS JOHN MAYER :)
With an eternal burden of people constantly wanting John to write another "Daughters" or "Continuum part two" it's pretty refreshing to have a man at his level of mainstream success stick to writing music tied to where he is in life and, simply, because he loves making music. Those truths shine through on this record in a pretty special way. Thank you for always putting your "present self" in your records, John.
One massive bowl of awesomeness! First day the album came out, I went up in the morning too get it and there were two copies left! Score! Thank you Mr. John for another amazing album of talent!
