amazon accidentally sent me this and The dark side of the moon vinyl a little while ago and i never sent it back. i never would have heard this if it wasn’t for some guy who ordered John Mayer’s Continuum, Pink Floyd DSOTM and the Lego Harry Potter collection for nintendo switch. i enjoyed this record tho
Without a doubt his best written work to date. Album breathes and oozes beauty through the stroke of Mayer's guitar and insight on personal shortcomings in the lyrics throughout. Truly a staple on mid 2000's singer songwriter music.
Mayer's best album, conclusively. He'd figured out exactly what he wanted to do with his pop sensibilities at this point, and knew not to be afraid to ignore them (an area in which he goes TOO FAR later in his career). The stars aligned when this thing was finished and I'm glad they saw fit to do so.
A passionate, slow-burning stride of modern guitar-pop music. Mayer's fingers are moving steadily, in a continuum, for the youth's delight. An interesting blend of blues, pop, folk, rock and everything else, wrapped in a colourful, romantic touch.
My friend recommended me this album. What a good friend.

This album is absolutely beautiful in every way possible. John Mayer's vocals combined with his guitar work add up to 12 amazing pieces of music. All of these songs are well written, fit with the theme, and they stand the test of time. For an album more than a decade old, this doesn't sound dated at all. What really gets me is that these songs are all calm and slow, but not boring. The songs actually manage to grab my attention. ... read more
