I was really looking forward to reviewing this, as the songs on this album were a significant part of my music taste growing up. There will be nostalgic bias, as I do believe this is the best John Mayer album as many critics may say. I do think his other albums that don't share the same spotlight as his first three are all underrated, especially Battle Studies and his latest. There is just something about this album that hits me differently, whether it be the recording ... read more


Note: Do not listen to this album right after listening to The Dillinger Escape Plan! All of your fond memories of this album will evaporate



Ah, John Mayer's Continuum, an album I am very much familiar with, almost too familiar with. This was THE singer-songwriter album of the 2000s filled with hits that everybody and their mom knows the lyrics too. What is commonly regarded as Mayer's best work, this record is no doubt an impressive one, and one that I think absolutely deserves to be on this list.

One of the albums my mom would play the most when I was a kid, and I used to think that many of the songs on it were really boring... Now I'm an adult, I thought that I'd love it because me grew up... But no, most of it stills being pretty boring.

Fav tracks:
- I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)
- Slow Dancing in a Burning Room

Least faves:
- Gravity
- The Heart of Life
- Bold as Love
- I'm Gonna Find Another You
- Stop This Train
- Dreaming with a Broken Heart

Presentation: Comes with an all white cover with a translucent part that barely shows Mayer looking down. The back is also white and features all of the song titles in a similar grey that appears as the above cover. It doesn't fold open, but instead features two paper sleeves for the 2 LPs. The first is John tying his coat toegether and the back has several pictures of the studio as well as the lyrics and credits. The second sleeve shows Mayer looking off to the side with his guitar.
