John Mayer has had kind of a rough go at it, in recent years. First he was caught up in a “racism” scandal a couple years back, via Playboy Magazine and then he needed throat surgery and just when he was getting better and ready to tour for his upcoming album, “Born and Raised” his voice got messed up again. Despite the fact that he can be kind of a jerk (kind of like the Kanye West of Rock), I love his music and I can’t wait till his new album drops next month on May 22nd. I hope it’s anywhere close to as good as his third amazing album “Continuum” was. His first single from the new album is called “Shadow Days” and it has sort of a Country meets George Harrison sort of vibe. I like it and it grows on me the more I listen to it. What do you think?
Another of my 50 favorite albums of the 00’s is “Continuum” by John Mayer and is also definitely in the top 5. The song of the day from “Continuum” is “I Don’t Trust Myself (With Loving You)”. This is my favorite song on the album. “Continuum” is such an amazing and beautiful album. John Mayer really showed off his chops here and proved he is one of the best guitarist and song writers of his generation and can hang with the best of all time. The album is chock full of smooth jams that you can feel in your soul. If you haven’t heard this jam, you need to check it out……now!!!
