If you're one of those people who doesn't like Mayer because you're "way too indie for that," then you're missing out. John Mayer has lasting potential and is one of the best artists of our generation (prolly gonna die for saying that). Shifting to the bluesy side of things may be one of the best choices Mayer has ever made. Reminiscent of Buddy Guy, the album just feels right. When people like Pete Townsend, Eric Clapton and the likes say how good he is, you just gotta believe it.
Don't agree? Listen to these works of art (listen to all of em if you can):
MP3: John Mayer - "Belief" (Ridiculously Amazingly Recommended)
MP3: John Mayer - "The Heart of Life (Wow... that's good)
Buy Continuum: Amazon | iTunes
Read his hilarious blog and MySpace.
Bonus MP3: John Mayer - "I Don't Trust Myself With Loving You"
Bonus MP3: John Mayer - "Dreaming With A Broken Heart"
Honestly, picking only a few songs to post from this album is ridiculously hard. They're all good. Finally, I have a version of "Slow Dancing In A Burning Room" from his latest EP. It features Ben Harper.
MP3: John Mayer feat. Ben Harper - "Waiting on the World to Change"
Here's a video of Mr. Mayer being awesome along with Steve Jordan & Pino Palladino (amazing)
Congratulations to Mr. Mayer on the success of his latest album.
