Continuum is a logical step up from Heavier Things, the mainstream sound of that album evolving here into a settled, bluesy tone. John has found the sound he is most comfortable with, I think, and it shows on this relaxed record. Standout tracks for me are the bittersweet 'Slow Dancing In A Burning Room', the simple and powerful message of 'Belief' and the honest yet strangely moving 'I Don't Trust Myself With Loving You'. But my ultimate favourite on this album is 'Vultures' - a self assured song with excellent guitar work and the confidence of a seasoned pro. Anyone into his earlier work should buy this album. Indeed, so should anyone who actually cares about music with heart and soul, as this album is filled to the brim with it.
