a little disappointing,
By A Customer
This review is from: Heavier Things (Audio CD)
Merely seeing the electric guitar on the front of heavier things was slightly un-nerving. Mayer's instant trademark acoustic sound seemed abandoned and to a certain extent was indeed. However, there is no doubting Mayer's talent as a song writer or his musical ability, however i know of no one who prefers Heavier Things to Room for Squares. Songs such as My stupid Mouth and Hey Georgia have not been re-iterated on the album. However, I would not be put off buying it from that ridiculous "where's the metal review," because as the reviwer says- he merely bought it due to the title, which is a mistake only eleven year olds commit and then learn from. If looking a Mayer album,unless already a fan, buy Room for Sqares first, as it is a universally listening friendly record, rather than Heavier things which is a CD that betters the more you listen to it.
