I've been getting acquainted with Battle Studies these past few days.
I want to be blown away. I really do what to tell you that my life has changed.
I like the album. I like anything John Mayer does. It's just that I know he is an outstanding musician and I was in the mood to be blown away musically. It's clear that this album was a lyrical growth for him, but musically there's not much going on that he couldn't pull off a decade ago. Humph. Maybe that's not fair. There are a few bluesy moments, but nothing compared to his work with the Trio, say.
Oh well, whatever. It's strong, solid Mayer. I'll be blown away next time.
