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

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.
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.
