John Mayer: "Continuum"

John Mayer and Steve Jordan produced and released the album "Continuum " After breaking up the "Trio" in March, 2006. 

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

The Album marks a new direction in John Mayer's career. This new direction shows off all his real talents, such as blues, rock, and a pop that puts his previous albums to shame. Although the album seems a bit overplayed (not TOO much) it definitely stays away from the cliché sound that many pop/rock artists adore. 

So instead of a cliché sound, Mayer has created something that many artists never get, a unique sound. He has created almost an entirely new genre, that combines all of the above into something special. 

Fast (Relatively) Songs 

Click Scrolling Mouse Wheel 

Waiting on the World to Change 
Belief 
Vultures 
Bold as Love (Jimi Hendrix Cover) 
Stop This Train 

Slow Songs 

I don't Trust Myself with loving you 
Gravity 
The Heart of Life 
Slow Dancing in a Burning Room (Favorite) 
Dreaming with a Broken Heart 
In Repair 
I'm Gonna find Another you 

Although the Album starts off in a very poppy direction, it finishes with an old-school feeling blues masterpiece. It is almost as if the whole album shows John's switch from the old "pop" to the new "blues/rock".

Overall, The Album is a very enjoyable experience. Although it definitely isn't the #1 album on my shelf, I still hold it in high regard. In the future I see Mayer fusing many new styles into mainstream music, and this blues/rock album is just the instigator.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
