That being said, I have a lot of respect for the way Mayer explores his musical boundaries. His music is never routine and can't be easily classified. While I am first and foremost a blues fan, I am also a fan of the artist John Mayer is. I was pleasantly surprised by this CD. The songs feel introspective and, at times, very personal. Most of the songs are of the soft rock/folk variety, while others venture into old country territory.
I was also pleasantly surprised by Who You Love, the song he does with Katy Perry. I have not been a big fan of Perry's music, but her voice shines here. The duo make beautiful music together.
In all, this collection of songs is a mellow and captivating listening experience.
Figured he was just cute pop star wannabee.
However, after seeing him play on the Crossroads DVD, I realized he is a heartfelt player, and I had misjudged.
Then, after reading public scrutiny about his hi-profile relationships, his personality, arrogance and such, decided to look deeper.
After listening to some of his work and watching interviews with him on Youtube, I found that he is a great musician and songwriter, even if his confidence level is a bit off-putting to some.
I found him very open, honest, and self aware.
Artists should grow, mature, and continually evolve their music. If every successful artist released an album nearly identical to the sound that made them popular, we'd have a lot of music that didn't push boundaries or try anything new. I think that Mayer started this evolution with Battle Studies, kept moving forward with Born and Raised, and now Paradise Valley is the culmination of those new sounds.
Out of eleven tracks, there are only a couple I could do without. "Wildfire" (the 2nd one) is sung entirely by Frank Ocean. Not that Ocean isn't a good vocalist, but this is a John Mayer album. When an artist releases an album once every couple years, you feel a little disappointed when one of the songs features someone else completely. The two VERY country tracks, "You're No One 'Til Someone Lets You Down" and "Badge And Gun" made me do a double take when I first heard them. They are unlike anything John has recorded before and although I wasn't a fan at first, after a few listens they grew on me.
In summary, John Mayer is one of the best guitarists of the current generation, and while his style continues to evolve, you can hear that creating quality music is still his primary goal. If you are expecting a copycat album of some of his older works, you might be disappointed, but if you listen to Paradise Valley with an open mind, you'll find some pretty great music.
Not a glitch in the voice either. He has better range and control of his vocals that ever before. Its going to be fun to watch him develop in the years to come.
You will not be disappointed with purchasing this cd. My cat Sammy is a very strong critic of music and this one had her purring and asleep in no time which is the mark of a truly great cd.
