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.

I have been a huge fan of John Mayer's since his first release and have loved how he has improved with every new album. Heavier things was better than room for squares(which was itself fantastic) and now continuum has topped them both. John has really shown what he is capable of in this album. There are wonderful riffs, fantastic lyrics and some stunning solos. Even if you don't class yourself as a fan of blues music I'm sure you couldn't help but love this new evolution of his style. The album really shows how he has matured over the years. Gravity is probably the best song on there but also slow dancing in a burning room, i'm gonna find another you, heart of life and stop this train are fantastic. There isn't a song on the album that i wouldn't rate as 5 star. Don't hesitate, buy it, it's definately worth it.

Saw John Mayer playing in the background of an episode of CSI and was stunned by the sound he was making, very soulful guitar with a rich bluesy voice I did not expect from somebody so young.I instantly bought Continuum and then Heavier Things and Room For Squares which although the latter 2 are good they show the path he has taken to get to the style of Continuum.

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.

This is something very special indeed, not that John Mayer hadn't accomplished great things with his major label debut 'Room for Squares' and considered follow-up 'Heavier Things', but 'Continuum' is a mature and individual album that I think showcases John Mayer as the artist he has perhaps 'wanted' to be in the past.

Those who follow Mayer closely know that in between the recording of his last album and this one, he released a live album called 'Try', which showcased Mayer with an excellent rhythm section and his own excellent blues guitar playing, modelled on Clapton BB King and Stevie Ray Vaughn. 'Continuum' therefore finds Mayer looking for the middle-ground between this, and his more commercial studio work. That he finds such a compelling balance between the two is a testament to his ability as a songwriter.

Opening song 'Waiting on the World to Change' and later 'Belief' epitomise this approach. Lyrically they are intelligent responses to the nervous and difficult world we exist in today, while rhythmically they are propelled forward by strong grooves and great guitar work.

Mayer's voice too, has grown. He feels more comfortable in his shoes ('Gravity' in particular, is a great vocal performance) and this is demonstrated in his decision to include 'Bold as Love', a Hendrix cover. It's not perfect, but is a strong inclusion nevertheless. For me the standout track is 'Slow Dancing in a Burning Room', a delicate and bitter love song that marries this new maturity in both Mayer's musicianship and writing. Continuum has been huge in the US, but as always it remains to be seen whether it will do the same over here. My advice is fairly simple - if you like your music to be considered and articulate then look no further - John Mayer has definitely arrived.

No bubblegum pop here, simply a well constructed album.

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?
