I don't know if i want to buy this album or not. I was disappointed with last years "Try", and from the looks of the tracklisting, this will be very similar. Half of me is happy that he stopped writing crappy bubblegum pop songs like "Your Body Is A Wonderland", but the other half misses the really good ballads ("Wheel", "Split Screen Sadness")
TRY was John having fun by doing something different. It was a great blues album that demonstrated Mayer's ability to stretch beyond the Pop world. I have had a chance to hear some of the somngs on this new album, and if you are looking for a ballad or two you will not be dissapointed. "I'm Gonna Find Another You" is a great soulful ballad.
Elvish, you'll love this album. It's quite mellow, with Waiting on the World to Change being probably the most upbeat tune. For John's guitar fans (including yours truly), there is PLENTY of picking on this one. Check out the leak on www.clearchannelmusic.com
Yeah I definitely agree with Adam; I downloaded a leak and have found myself unable to listen to pretty much anything else for the last few days it's that good. I'll definitely be lining up to hear the full quality version from the store. So many good songs on this album it's almost impossible to choose a favourite at the moment!
