Although a stunning guitarist he definately practices at the B.B.King school of guitar i.e. 'why play 10 notes when 1 note will do' and this is refreshing in a world where to many guitarists thing the quicker you play the better you are.
There are to many stand out tracks but Gravity is simply beautiful.
Ingore this at your peril.
Ok, a Mayer fan won't need my approval to buy it and likewise they won't be disappointed. As for the rest of you it really depends on where you're coming from. If you loved `Room for Squares' and still sing `Your Bond is a Wonderland' to yourself in the mirror, and you thought `Heaver Things' was a disappointment, then this album is probably not for you.
John's song writing returns to the lyrical genius of `Room for Squares', but the bubblegum pop is now well and truly behind him. If you were hoping for another sugar hit of the bubblegum pop then go to amazon.com and look up Matt Wertz - he's fantastic.
Now, if you've enjoyed `TRY', or seen John Mayer live or you just have total respect for the floppy haired genius, then don't delay buy it today. `Waiting on the World to Change' and `Belief' are great singles, but scratch a little deeper and there is more adult John Mayer just waiting to get out. `Dreaming with a Broken Heart', `I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)', `Stop This Train' and `The Heart of Life' offer far more mature song writing from a man who has grown up massively in five years and it's also given him a far more gentle approach to song production. `Vultures' (Previously heard on `TRY' John Mayer Trio) and `Bold as Love' see a John in heavier guitar form, which should please any Jonny Lang fans amongst you.
For me the stand out song is `Slow Dancing in a Burning Room', possibly the best song John's ever written and well worth the £10 alone - just timeless.
Overall an outstand offering and one that will undoubtedly withstand the test of time..and how many albums today could make that claim?
Evolving from the guitar balladeer of old and striking a nice balance between heartfelt songwriter and blues guitar hero, John Mayer proves that he's one of the best musicians around today. I still think it's a crime he's not popular over here in the UK, although the success of ticket sales for his one-off London gig in October may be a pointer in the opposite direction.
This album has been a long time coming for patient fans and you can tell he's taken his time to craft a flowing and heartfelt selection of songs. I personally loved his previous albums, plus the John Mayer Trio but I think you can enjoy this album even if you didn't. Sure, it's bluesier, but in the 3 years since Heavier Things, John Mayer has really grown as a songwriter. I think he's more confident in his ability and it shows with songs such as the epic `In Repair' and simple but deep `Gravity'.
Belief started life as an off the cuff riff during a live show and has grown (with the added injection of Ben Harper joining on guitar) into an awesome, politically laced anthem with a nod to Sting's style. Heart of Life is a melody driven slice of melancholy while Stop This Train is a call to aging and what it means to us. Vultures, the falsetto funk fest first heard on Try, sounds just as brilliant in a studio setting. Slow Dancing in a Burning Room is a heartbreak tour de force and possibly the best song on the album.
I don't know how he does it, but John Mayer seems to articulate any thought I've ever had in a way I could never do. Buy this album even if you've never heard of him before, you won't be disappointed.
