5-0 out of 5 stars Eloquent and Excellent
John Mayer is back and better than ever with Continuum.This album from this brilliant singer-songwriter is destined to be a classic.He eloquently, vocalizes the thoughts and fears of our generation from heartbreak to the fear of losing our parents and aging.He also does an excellent job of addressing social issues with the utmost class and without forcing his opinions on anyone.Kudos, John!I am pleased to see someone talented represent our generation, and I look forward to buying his music for many years to come.

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfied
I was sitting up late Saturday night and turned it to Soundstage already in progress. I saw Buddy Guy on stage playing with this young guy I had never seen. I became enthralled with the performances but I never caught his name. So afterwards I looked up the Soundstage tv schedule and found out it was John Mayer. Did some further checking and found out about his turn toward the blues, and I love blues. Took a chance and bought the cd next day. Best music I've bought in a long time. No, it's not straight blues. But it's definitely honest. And in this day and time of kitsch glorification, I'll take it. I feel like my money was well spent. Can't say that for a whole lot of things I've bought.

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, thoughtful album...
The fact that I am taking the time to post, speaks volumes about how special I think Continuum is...I often find myself "suckered" into buying a CD these days, because a track suggests that the rest of the album may prove to be a pleasant surprise. It is a bit like the movie trailer that entices you to head to the theater, only to be disappointed that you have already seen the only enjoyable part of the movie. Continuum is the exception to that unfortunate rule...It is an extraordinary piece of work. ... Read more

I can't necessarily argue with all of the criticisms of this album and band...

This is such generic boring radio friendly crap and If I hear any more of there songs on Vh1 or MTV I am going to go insane. Somebody say they were helping modern rock, are you insane there boring and sound like some many other generic bands that get theme songs to shows like the O.C.
3-0 out of 5 stars Reminds me of the late 90s...
There are two things I really like about this album.First, the two hit singles, "Over My Head(Cable Car)" and "How to Save a Life," are absolute stunners, in my opinion both in the Top 5 best singles of 2006.The other thing I like about this is the album reminds me, for better or worse, of the late 1990s glory days of alterna-pop-rock bands like Matchbox-20, Eve6, Third Eye Blind, Tonic, Everclear, etc.All of these bands have one thing in common with The Fray:they all make albums with 2 or 3 killer singles, but nothing else particularily memorable.The rest of the songs on these bands' albums really sound like lesser copies of the singles.

Editorial Review

This soundtrack to the hit TV series starts off with a melancholy ballad by Denver's the Fray (fittingly titled "How to Save a Life"), but the well-curated CD isn't all thoughtful adult alt-rock--reflecting the series' mood changes, it offers a wide range of modern sounds. In addition to the expected acoustical numbers (in this case, from Anya Marina, KT Tunstall, and Snow Patrol's live version of "Chasing Cars"), the album reaches across genres and continents to offer the sunny-'60s-pop vibe of Jim Noir's "I Me You," Jamie Lidell's electro-jazzy "Multiply," the edgy punky-pop aggro of Metric, the rambunctious "Sexy Mistake" from the Chalets, and the winning singalong misanthropy of singer-songwriter Foy Vance's "I Hate Everyone." Ursula 1000's Alex Gimeno lightens up the proceedings with one of his trademark upbeat, hip-gyrating numbers (which seems to pay tribute to Serge Gainsbourg's "Comic Strip"), while the Moonbabies' sweet, swirling harmonies deliver the kind of perfectly crafted pop we've come to expect from the Swedes. If this compilation turns people on to these deserving acts, it will have done its job. Read more

All of your reviews I have to agree with. But there is a song that I believe isn't on the CD for Greys. I don't know the exact title for it. But it was in the episode with the bomb. It was Breath, or Just Breath. Can someone please find out the title so that I may purchase this.
3-0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better
Overall there are some great songs on here and then there are some that had me changing the track to the next song.In my opinion, Vol 2 is not as good as Vol 1.Would have been alot better if Breathe was on here.That was the best scene in the entire 2nd season of GA.Shame on you Anna Nalick and GA for not putting that song on here!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Man the Dixie Chicks suck
The Dixie Chicks are whiny losers, and I hate them. Natalie Maines is a pig, and she has a major attitude problem. I hate their new music, and I don't even like Bush. If I saw Natalie Maines I'd yell at her and tell her she sucked because she does. Do not buy this cd. It's bad music, and there a million better things to spend money on than supporting crappy people and paying good money for bad crappy music.
5-0 out of 5 stars Ya just don't get it...
do ya Natalie? The problem isn't your extreme dislike of Bush. The issue is your self indulgence - your insistence on stating your political opinions to a captive, PAYING audience. People are touchy about that kinda thing. Maybe they went a little overboard in their criticism. But they pay to hear you sing, NOT to hear about your politics. You're the Dixie Chicks - three of the most talented women ever to grace the music industry. So stop whining, get over it, and move ahead.

5-0 out of 5 stars Let the music do the talking
As a father of an American girl, all I can say is "thank you."These girls rock.The attitude that is so blatant in the lyrics of the debut track is dripping from every note played on this album.This is the attitude I want my girl to have when she has to stand up to adversity. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Bundle up with Sarah this winter.
The great thing about this album is that being a Christmas/winter album, it feels authentic, and not like some lame way to cash in on a holiday.This is mainly because it was released in October, which makes it stand out, and also just because the music is so good."Wintersong" is full of great, wintery tunes.Heck, the cover of Joni Mitchell's "River" is worth the purchase alone, but the whole thing is great.
5-0 out of 5 stars My new Christmas Favorite!
My absolute favorite is "River"- I'm shocked that anyone could "do it" better then Joni Mitchell, but Sara McLachlan has such unbounded talent.I really liked the fact that her music suits so many different ages & tastes within my household.Definitely a CD we can all agree on this winter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Haunting
for a "Holiday Season" album, but not really unexpected for a Sarah McLachlan album. Even with some of the more traditional Christmas songs she adds her own signature soulfullness that most fans have come to expect and savor. Her voice puts me in a trance. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Born to be mild? Amos Lee's sophomore effort for Blue Note follows firmly in the gentle guitar strums of his well-received 2005 debut and opening slots for Norah Jones and Bob Dylan. Little has changed the second time around, which will come as a relief to those enthralled by his first release. He remains a sensitive sort, mixing his insightful, reflective lyrics with lovely, unforced melodies played by backing musicians that stay on low boil. These tunes go down as smoothly as hot chocolate on a cold day, yet Lee brings an unassuming sincerity to the proceedings with his cozy, amiable voice. Comparisons to Bill Withers and James Taylor are accurate if inevitable, but when the gospel organ quivers into "Skipping Stone," it's clear Lee isn't stuck in a folk-pop rut.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Follow Up CD to "Amos Lee"
I love this CD. I love the fact that Amos Lee is the type of artist who is true to his music and although he may not be considered "mainstream", music lovers will "get him" and his style. Sometimes, as I listen to the music of today,I get dishearted because I find no value in the music, no artistry. Well, "Supply and Demand" confirms to me that their is still real,thought provoking, moving,engaging,and creative artists around.Like his previous CD "Amos Lee", I love the lyrics in the songs."Shout Out Loud" is a great song to open with, and my teenagers ask me to play it over and over again...I have many favorites, including "Shout Out Loud", "Skipping Stone", "Supply and Demand", "Sweet Pea" ...o.k., I love the whole CD....In an age where you may get 1 or 2 songs on a CD that you really like, this CD is filled with songs you will love...Buy it, then enjoy!!!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Superb
This CD is a great follow up to his last CD. There are very few artists with the originality that Amos Lee has. If you enjoy any folk or easy listening this is a definite must to add to your collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an entertaining new CD from Amos Lee
I love this new CD from Amos Lee.The first single is entitled Shout Out Loud.This song really puts me in a great mood.His guitar playing is so energetic here.My favorite track is Long Line Of Pain though.It is a beautiful song about personal loss and loneliness. Sympathize is an another highlight on this disc.Amos Lee's subtle voice is filled with compassion for people who are down on their luck.Southern Girl is Amos' tribute to thecharm of a girl from the south.Night Train is a very pretty love song. Skipping Stone is a bluesy sounding song about trying to move on after the loss of a loved one.Freedom is an interesting track.It is a reminder that the pursuit offreedom should not lead to violence.The lyrics of this song are true and thought provoking. Sweet Pea is a simple and sweet song about coming home to someone special.Careless is an excellent song about the betrayal of a friend.I love the feeling of loss and sense ofhurt in Amos' voice on this track. Supply and Demand is a very entertaining CD by a talented young musician and song writer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars If you don't like this cd you're a fool
To start, I find that whenever I mention Grey's Anatomy to a co-worker or friend, they ALWAYS say, " I LOVE that show!! And the music is SOOOO GOOOOOOD!!" You can't hit the nail on the head more than that. Grey's Anatomy prides itself on good music, so to say this cd is bad, well, that's just poor taste. If you go to the Grey's Anatomy website, they go so far as to list every song they're played on every episode. If there's a song you want and you know the episode, go to the website and track it down, I promise you it will only take a few minues.
3-0 out of 5 stars Best Song Left Out
I can't believe they put together this CD and left off what I thought was the best song they used in the entire first season.Unfortunately, I do not know the title or the artist.I'm hoping someone else might be able to provide that information.All I remember is that the song was played in the very first episode (if I'm not mistaken) when Dr. Shepherd chose Melissa for the OR to operate on the teen beauty queen's aneurism.I only recall the repeated line of "put your hands in the fire".Any help?
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing.
I am a huge fan of Grey's Anatomy, and one of the best parts of the show for me is the music.So when the soundtrack came out, I was really excited, even though I was really only familiar with about two of the songs they included.The first time I listened to it, I fell in love with a few of the songs, but a few of the others took awhile for me to get used to.The songs are all very different, with a wide variety of sounds and voices that you don't hear much on the radio, and it works.It is now my very favorite cd and I listen to it more than the rest of my cd's combined.It's that good. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars I have faith in music again !!!!
Next to my wife, in my 48 years of life, music has been my passion. In recent times, its been very hard for me to find anything I like. The American music "powers to be" want to do nothing but shove hip hop, fluff & shallow "Pop Tarts" (Britney, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton & on & on & on.........) down our throats. FINALLY, after about 20 years, a breath of fresh air !!! I stumbled upon K T Tunstall channel surfing & came accross the tail end of her Soundstage concert televised on PBS about a month ago. I didn't know who she was at the time but was greatly impressed with the couple of songs I heard. I purchased the cd last week & by coincidence, heard she was coming to Buffalo last Friday (9-29-06). I listened to the CD & I couldn't believe my ears. This is the most talented artist to come along in ages. I can't get enough of this cd. The opening tune, "Other side of the world", is as beautiful of a song as your ever going to hear. The chord progressions & KT's sweet vocals send chills down my spine. The next tune, " Another place to fall", has a bit of an edge & shows another side of this multi talented artist. I'm not going to analyze each track, but they compliment each other well. The 2 more "up tempo" songs, "Black horse & the cherry tree" & "Suddenly I see", are excellent. Before I bought the cd, I read various reviews. I heard KT compared to Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, Melissa Etheridge among others. I was a little skeptical. I said to myself, no one can be THAT GOOD !!?? Well guess what, SHE IS. She's a genuine artist who pours everything she has into her music. A great writer, musician & most of all, singer. Oh, & I almost forgot, performer. My wife & I caught her show in Buffalo last week & it has to rank in the top 5 I've seen in my lifetime. Not alot of dancing around, no elaborate stage set up although she has a great band with her, no lasers or fancy lightshow, just her musical talent & thats enough to take you away.I HAVE FAITH IN MUSIC AGAIN !!!!!!!YES !!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, some good music!
I am neither young nor hip.The music that today's kids listen to is grating on my ears.I have eclectic musical tastes, and listen to everything from classical, to jazz, to folk, to rock; but I can't stand hip hop, dance music, or Top-40 pop.Give me Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Stevie Ray Vaughn, or Pink Floyd.I have no use for Britney Spears, Jessica Simpson, or Diddy.In other words, I want more from my music than a beat you can dance to and some sexy choreography.In order to get my attention, music must have some depth to it.I want substance; not just superficial flash.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Album - Great singer/songwriter
I first saw KT Tunstall on a video on VH1 several months ago.I didn't know who she was, but I was really taken by the song "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree".I finally purchased the album a few weeks ago and am glad I did.While "Black Horse and Cherry Tree" is still my favorite, the album is filled with great music.She is refreshingly original, different from most of the manufactured pop songstresses currently on the airwaves. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful gift from one of our purest talents
At times rueful, angry, sad and hopeful, Shawn Colvin's new release paints a musical landscape of deep introspection and timeless beauty.Her words penetrate the active listener, a verse, chorus or phrase may touch one of us more than another depending on what life has dealt us (or we've dealt ourselves!), but be assured that there is something here for all of us.John Leventhal (whom I saw a few weeks back onstage with his beautiful and talented wife and musical partner, Rosanne Cash), is, and always has been, a perfect match for Shawn's musical voice.Together, and surrounded by a typically great list of musicians, they have created another masterwork.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ain't it cool-
I absolutely loved "A Few Small Repairs" and was not sure Shawn would ever be able to top it.Well, she does. I agree that less production is more-- she doesn't need it. In fact, she should do a completely solo album w/voice & guitar and maybe have a few tracks with another guitar & bass thrown in.Her rendition of Westerberg's "Even Here We Are" is perfect--and *almost* makes up for "Every Little Thing He Does is Magic..."I think John Lennon would have liked this one.Seriously.
5-0 out of 5 stars BestShawn Colvin Album Ever!
I read on one of these things that this was not an "accessible" album or some such rot. Baloney. This is a GREAT album. Period.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Indigo Girls Album!
The title of this new Indigo Girls album makes it natural to compare the song-writing styles of the two Indigo Girls a little.
4-0 out of 5 stars Deserved better recording and producing
I am a huge IG fan. Don't regret the purchase at all. I enjoy the songs, but this CD seems rushed. Something is missing in the mixing or recording or something. Seems that there is no intrumental or vocal nuance, unimaginative background music, almost the kind of thing you get with a live recording. Sometimes the background vocals overpower the song (Pink sounds great in Rock n Roll Heavens Gate but totally overpowers Amy, Emily and the intruments IMHO). I think it would have been a much better album had more time and attention to detail been spent in production and recording.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just like when you were on the Today show w/ Bryant Gumbel
Wow - okay, this album reminds me of the music that made me want to sing, write, and play guitar when I was 13 years old.There I was, watching the Today show with Bryant Gumbel...and there they were, the Indigo Girls performing Closer to Fine.I had no idea who they were, but I loved their sound, it was like nothing I had heard before - so I asked my mom to buy me the album.That same year I went to one of my first concerts and watched IG perform with Joan Baez and sure enough I was a folk music lover.

While this is a great collection of earlier R.E.M., I would have rather seen a box set including the IRS material, live songs, and b-sides.The 2 CD offering is far too skimpy for this band.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Collection
This is a good buy for new listeners as well as old fans.It's good to hear the early stuff in a collection like this.Brings back many memories and recreates many moods.I am disappointed by recent REM recordings, but we always have music like this to appreciate.A must even for diehards.Nice packaging, too, with comments on many of the songs by the band members included in the accompanying booklet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Sound quality- Remastering gone very wrong
This is really sad, this is an otherwise excellent collection. But in today's quest for everything to be LOUD, the over compressed this so that it's lost almost all dynamic range, and is just stressfull to listen to. You hear things you never did before-- BECAUSE THAT WEREN"T SUPPOSED TO STAND OUT IN THE MIX!Everything just stays at the same level, it sounds like there are some phase issues on some tracks as well.

I agree with the other reviewers that find his voice annoying.I hate that he yodels the last syllable of EVERY word.Just because you CAN do that doesn't mean that you should.I have no problem with men singing in high voices.Dexter Holland of the Offspring, Michael Jackson (Don't laugh at me), Freddy Mercury, and Ozzy (back in the day at least) have high male voices...but they don't sound like THIS.I'm even partial to Colin Meloy of The Decemberists."Weird Al" Yankovic (another high-voiced singer) did a much better version of one of these songs called "You're Pitiful".I highly recommend you check it out.My two-star rating is based only on the simple acoustic instrumentation (which I enjoy).

You know the ones..."High", "You're Beautiful", "Wisemen", and "Tears and Rain". I appreciate the lyrics on some of the others, but just a little too much whining for me. But those 4 songs are great; I bought the CD for 1 song really, so I came out ahead. His next album will be better, no doubt about that. Def. someone to watch... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Beautiful SoundtrackFrom Zach Braff
It's the highest compliment when you buy a soundtrack before you see the first frame of the film. Zach Braff had great success with Garden State because the songs were great and stood by themselves. He also specializes in introducing new bands that people should hear.
5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I absolutely love this CD, I can't stop listening to it. I recently picked up the Garden State soundtrack and love it just as much. Zach Braff has introduced me to a whole new group of amazing artists.

5-0 out of 5 stars Musical High
Zach Braff weaves a world of extraordinary perfection in his selections for The Last Kiss. The album breaks into your consciousness with Snow Patrol's honest addiction revealed in "Chocolate." Joshua Radin's Star Mile perfectly balances the initial energy with "Pain Killer" as the album takes off again. Coldplay is a familiar comfort and presents a slow sweep of dream pop that leaves us ready to sink into a musical high with "Ride."

4-0 out of 5 stars Dance Me To The End Of Love
I really like this album and Madeleine's song selection is superb with the exception of Dance Me To The End Of Love. This song written by Leonard Cohen really creeps me out. Most people think it's a love song between a man and a woman. Leonard Cohen explained the song in an interview:
3-0 out of 5 stars Nice enough, but...
Madeleine Peyroux has a great voice and terrific taste in songs to cover, and the band backing her up here hits all the right mellow, jazzy notes.If she keeps up the effort, she's bound to produce some classic recordings.But she isn't quite there yet.There's nothing really wrong with these twelve songs - certainly nothing jumps out as poorly done.The problem is more that nothing really jumps out, period.Hearing their songs so tastefully copied makes me want to listen to Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Hank Williams, but Peyroux doesn't make much of a case as to why we should listen to her versions instead of the originals.Not bad at all, but only not bad.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Golly... the first time you hear Dance Me To The End
of Love???i STOPPED what i was doing, ordered the cd from amazon, then downloaded this song from iTunes and spent the night listening to the song on repeat!

Editorial Review

Texas quintet Blue October has bounced from Houston-based indie darlings to the majors and back twice since their '98 bow. Yet there's little sense they've compromised much of their eclectic, creatively restless ethos in the bargain on this, their fourth studio album (and second major label stint). In the hands of less ambitious musicians, the personally harrowing, perfectly crafted "Hate Me" would have become template for the entire collection; here it's but the most commercially focused of band leader Justin Furstenfeld's eclectic musical obsessions. His taste for early '80s UK New Wave evinces itself in a fondness for lyrical shadows and fleeting sonic echoes of Richard Butler's P-Furs and Peter Gabriel. But it's in the collection's quieter, more reflective songs ("Let It Go" and "Congratulations" turn on Ryan Delahousaye's signature violin phrases; "X Amount of Words" effortlessly morphs through several intriguing techno conceits; "18th Floor Balcony" bristles with an almost neo-classical elegance) where Blue October sets itself a cut above its post-grunge contenders.

4-0 out of 5 stars Staind meets Paul Simon
Well, everyone is reminded of 80's new wave . . . hmmmmm. I actually find a kinship between Blue October and Simon and Garfunkel. Blue October's acoustic efforts like "18th Floor Balcony" remind me of the work of Paul Simon. Also, the overlapping harmonies on "Into the Ocean". . . very much like the stylings of Simon and Garfunkel. Likewise, the magnificent lyrics and personal introspection in the songs. "Hate Me" is a masterpiece as it remains commercially successful while not betraying the essence of the band. I found only one song on the album to be strangely out of place and that is "Drilled a Wire through My Cheek". It was a bit loud and angsty . . . reminded me too much of Staind. Great album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Blue October = well done Peter Gabriel clone band
This is a well composed CD and a remarkable band.I had never heard of them until recently (Sept 2006) on the radio.
4-0 out of 5 stars defies classification
Ok, like millions of other music fans, I heard "Hate Me" and "loved it". So I went out and bought the CD, and was pleasantly surprised and impressed. It's a great album! I'm surprised this band isn't way more popular. This is one of those CDs which could easily spawn many singles-there are some really great, catchy tunes here. There is something for everyone: some of the songs are harder than others, others are more pop, but they are all really quite good. Highly recommended! ... Read more

Editorial Review

15+ years after their winsome indie debut, Canada's Barenaked Ladies come full circle here, dropping off the major label merry-go-round to re-embrace a DYI sensibility with typically breezy aplomb. But, as this collection's strong songs and crisp production attest, that hardly means the band didn't learn a thing or three during its successful tenure in the majors. The gorgeous melancholy of "Adrift" is apt preamble to a collection that's more thematically balanced and graced by an expansive sense of artistic democracy. While mainstays Steven Page and Ed Robertson contribute such patently torqued, BNL-mirthful fare as "Bank Job," "Bull in a China Shop," "Rule the World With Love" and "Wind It Up," there's a growing maturity and sense of reflection in their work as well, as evidenced by Page confessing his own emotional disconnection via the evocative, banjo-accordion lament "Everything Had Changed." But it's the strong, equally literate contributions of fellow band members Jim Creeggan ("Peterborough & the Kawathas") and Kevin Hearn ("Sound of Your Voice," "Vanishing") that truly expand BNL's horizons at a career juncture when many bands are all too happy to rest on their laurels or hew religiously to the formula that garnered them.

2-0 out of 5 stars A Downer
I love BNL but found this album very disappointing.The tagline for the CD was that it is their best work since "Stunt".If you liked the upbeat "Stunt", you probably will NOT care much for this CD.Very melancholy.

4-0 out of 5 stars The other CD is better!
There is another CD of this same album with 14 more bonus tracks giving the CD 27 tracks.About 17 of those are quality tracks with some of the better ones in the bonus group. You can ck it out at Rapsody. JT

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD, might even be their best
I have been listening to the Barenaked Ladies since I was [...]and have loved almost everything they have done. Although at first I was not a huge fan of Everything to Everyone I grew to like it a lot, but they were still great because of the old stuff and they are an excellent live band. I am glad I didn't give up on them! Barenaked Ladies Are Me is unbelievable and it might be their best album ever! I have listened to it about ten times now and I like it more everyday. It is definitely their most emotional album since Born on a Pirate Ship. "Home" is one of the best songs they have ever written and is up there with "Call and Answer" and "Break Your Heart" in terms of emotional power. "Adrift","Sound of Your Voice", "Bull in a China Shop" and "Everything Had Changed" are great. The last one even brought me memories of Elliott Smith R.I.P. It was also great to see Jim and Kevin get into the action since they are horribly under utilized. Maybe next time around we can even get a Tyler solo, haha. Anyway, buy this album it is great and go out and see them live if you can, because they are amazing! ... Read more

Reviews (218)

4-0 out of 5 stars And all you wanted was to run for cover (4.5)
When I use to think of Nelly Furtado I couldn't help but automtically start singing "I'm like a bird". That's all she ever was to me, the girl who sang the bird song. However, I heard, and I kid you not, a 4 second sound clip of Promiscuous in the middle of a store and right then decided I needed this CD. I stalled for the longest time though because I just knew it would be a waste of money. A sudden urge and extra cash summed up my purchase of this CD though. I don't regret it at all. Sure there are some parts that tend to drag a little more than I'd like but for the most part, Nelly has created something special with Loose.
1-0 out of 5 stars Nellie didn't reinvent herself
The music business did. Nellie Furtado is gorgeous, always has been, but I used to respect her music. The industry did the same thing to her as they did to Jewel. They took a fresh, folky act and transformed her into an electronic joke made to sound like everyone else with a top 40 record. That is a shame because she has a great deal of talent. Put her with Timberland and surprise, she's like Fergie and every other fake artist in the game. I know you're asking me what I know about the game. I haven't had many top 40 hits in my life, in fact I haven't had any, but I front some of the best cover bands in southeast Nebraska. My band is called Blisterpuss(the last part is pronounced like bus, but with a "p"). We do covers of bands like Dishwalla, Counting Crows and Live. People in the business have told us we need to be more like 98 degrees or Justin Timberlake if we are ever going to play venues like North Platte or Hamburg, Iowa. Granted, it's tempting to sell out to play places that bring in crowds over 100, but if we did that could we live with ourselves? Jabs might be able to because he seems destined for bigger things since he plays drums and bass guitar at the same time, but the rest of us don't want to compromise what makes us who we are. Sure, we could cover Hasselhoff and win crowds over in a heartbeat, but Hasselhoff's music is in a holy place we are not allowed to touch. So we crank out what we know and fans are all up on us.

Editorial Review

John Mayer's big-label debut was a multiplatinum breakthrough success whose sensual anthem "Your Body Is a Wonderland" scored him an unlikely Grammy for Best Pop Vocal. That out-of-the-box succes--and more than a few critics grousing that Mayer's muse was cloned from Dave Matthews--primed him for the typical sophomore slump. Instead, Mayer delivers an album whose tone and title suggests a gentle, tongue-in-cheek rebuke to his naysayers. Propelled by the subtle ambitions of an expanded pop-jazz framework (largely courtesy of Sheryl Crow/No Doubt/Jellyfish producer Jack Joseph Puig), Mayer's breathy vocal tack now suggests a detached, conflicted, and significantly less precious incarnation of Michael Franks. But, the way he weds fluid pop hooks to lyrical concerns whose self-obsessions are undercut by telling dollops of self-deprecation from the my-spirit's-too-big/smart-for-my-body laments of "Clarity," the upbeat single "Bigger Than My Body," and the bluesy plea "Come Back to Bed" to the cautionary, melodically-rich "Daughters" and even the antimaterialist agitprop of "Something's Missing should clearly draw in listeners."

5-0 out of 5 stars He Ain't Heavy...
Up until getting Continuum and listening to it twenty times, Heavier Things remained in my head as my all time favorite JM CD.Everyone loves Room for Squares and we all got introduced to John through that one, and everyone loved it immediately.But the first time I listened to Heavier Things, I thought, "not quite as good as Squares."The second time I listened to it, I thought, "hey this is pretty damn good."Then I started listening to it out on my daily walks, and the more I listened to it, the more I thought it was amazing.I liked John after Squares, but it was listening to Heavier Things over and over that really made me fall madly in love with him.Made me want to see him in concert, and again... Made me buy Try! and Any Given Thursday (DVD and CD, both great), and Continuum, and devour them and play them at home, in the car, etc. etc.I hope that John will keep putting out new stuff for a long, long time.I can't can't can't get enough of his music.He ain't bad to look at either!

5-0 out of 5 stars Holds up to Squares....
John Mayer is a true musician in a time of mindless pop & annoying celebrity singer wannabees. I had to listen to Heavier Things a couple times before I appreciated the more subtle and mature tone. That may be the reason why some were disappointed. It lacks the "hooks" and some of the "wit" of Squares but has an abundance of true musicianship, emotion and maturity. For me the big hits of Room for Squares (No Such Thing & Your Body is a Wonderland) have worn a bit thin over time. There are no such tracks on Heavier. I've listened countless times & none have gotten old for me. Heavier is a beginning to end listen. No tracks need be skipped.
4-0 out of 5 stars John Mayer: New to me.
Though John Mayer is new to me, I have always liked the 'soft rock' genre. I got drawn in by the easy rock guitar selections, (especially 'Clarity') and listening to the lyrics came later.
