Favourite Song on Album:
Listen to This Album When You’re:
You want John Mayer at his best.
Thoughts on Album Cover:
It’s okay, nothing special here.
Want to Own on Vinyl?:
Oh hell yes.
These John Mayer songs are really close to my heart, it’s what I know him the most for, and what I dream he would revert to. This is one of those albums that I remember fondly but forgot about the dip in quality near the end of the record (Bold As Love, Dreaming With A Broken Heart, and In Repair all being pretty major misses for me). All that to say this is still a solid album that I constantly refer as being Mayer’s best work.
