Why does everyone place John Mayer in such a small, limiting box?,
This review is from: Born and Raised (Audio CD)
Maybe it's because John Mayer and I are around the same age but it seems that everything he puts out just speaks to me. Battle Studies, I thought, was just great music with a pop twist. This album reminds me of the kind of music my parents used to listen to when I was growing up and it resonates with me. I really wish John Mayer fans would take their heads out of their asses and realize that an artist cannot stick with the same formula over and over (ie: Continuum). It wont work and is counter productive to their own art to do so. Born and Raised is a beautiful album with beautiful melodies and most importantly a beautiful message. I kind of feel sorry for John Mayer to have such whiney babies as fans.
