John Mayer- Continuum

I didn't see any topics about this and I'd like to hear people's opinions! I really liked Waiting On the World to Change when I first heard it and I recently got the cd. I was pleasantly surprised, I really like it. I think it's a departure from his other stuff and it's really good. More adult-ish or something. I think I'm gonna go see him in January when he comes here.

Well, I feel a little betrayed. He slipped the wishy-washy college girl-pleasin' sound so easily and forcefully with the John Mayer Trio record I'm kind of disappointed with some of the material on the new one.

I'll have to give it a few more listens.

I've saw John Mayer live when he toured Australia a year or so ago and he really is very talented and a good guitarist.

Not sure about this album though, but maybe I need to give it some more listens. It doesn't seem to have the strengths of a Wheel or Come Back to Bed, although he does a nice version of Hendrix's Bold As Love. Which probably proves I prefer him when he goes off into his guitar solo's.

The one in Waiting On the World to Change is great. I don't know a lot of his stuff, but he seems very talented.

I know 'Waiting On The World To Change'. Heard him do it on Oprah last week, as well as Oprah using it as a song on the High School Challenge episode. Other than that

I'm really digging his new album.
I wasn't extremely attracted to his past work with the pop melodies and stuff (especially since they were so overplayed), but I loved the Try! album too... so I'm pretty pleased.

He's so talented too. Geez. There're some really catchy guitar licks here and there which is cool. (Oh, and it took me a few listens to really get into it to, so hopefully some of you guys will reconsider )

I thought it was funny how he thanked Eric Clapton for letting him "rip stuff off of him"...

I like "I don''t trust myself" and the mother of them all "Slow Dancing in...". Just beautiful.
