Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

You want John Mayer at his best.

It’s okay, nothing special here.

Oh hell yes.

Final Thoughts:

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.
