My I ask what kind of country you guys are referring to? I can definitely understand disliking most of what's on the radio, but I find most people who say they don't like country have been finding...

I think I only watched a live snippet of "She's American," but I remember thinking it sounded a lot like some of the songs on the debut. I don't think that based on the studio version, though.

I mean, that's how John considers it. He didn't intend to release an album so soon, but he had a bunch of songs and decided to put them out. I think his exact quote was "You can't hate it, because it...

"A Face to Call Home" is my favorite. Other than that, you could drop "If I Ever Get Around to Living" and you've got my top five. Some days, "Queen of California" is in my top five too, though. I...

"Queen of California" is great. The worst song on the record is "Speak for Me," hands down.

Dude, you need to go listen to that record. Knowing what I know about your taste, it could legitimately be your favorite John Mayer album.

Born & Raised is easily his second best album, Battle Studies is as good as the first two. Paradise Valley was his weakest, but was basically a bonus album. Not worried about this not being good.

I really love the speeches he's written for Rock Hall inductions and that SXSW keynote he did a few years ago. He has this way of portraying artists and music in an almost mythic light. I wonder if...

Yeah, definitely. I don't know if I'll write something about this. I think Ryan G. is signed up for the review, which is kind of a relief because I don't know how I'd approach it. Maybe after a few...

It's fine, not a highlight. Almost feels more like an epilogue than a closer to me. "Nana" is definitely the emotional zenith of the record.



Exactly. It kind of feels like "ticking all the boxes,"...

I mean, I guess it's accurate in that it accurately describes what is happening in the songs? But I a) don't really care for that kind of music writing anyway, and b) don't think you can do the...
