Product Description

Amazon.ca

Continuum is about as apt a title as it gets for John Mayer's third studio disc. Every element, from the peerless guitar playing to the plainspoken poetry of the lyrics to the breathy-sincere singing, makes a return from previous efforts. But to weakly pronounce this another worthwhile effort from an artist the world has come to expect a whole lot from and then call it a day would be no minor misdeed, because it's also the best, boldest disc he's ever made. Taking maturity as a theme throughout, Mayer tackles a batch of adulthood's bogeymen: indifference on the uptempo chart-climber "Waiting for the World to Change," aging on the melancholy-sweet "Stop This Train," and emotional trainwreckage on the big-rocking "In Repair." That's not to suggest he's turned overly introspective--check the Jimi Hendrix cover "Bold As Love," where he hits one home for guitarists who've been living in the shadow of legend everywhere, and the hard-charging "Belief," which benefits from a mesmerizing, liquid groove. Continuum may be the third in a series, but a creative cop-out this is not; Mayer is his generation's musical superman--powerful, unassailable, and magnetic. Hand that man a cape. --Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs sung blue Sept. 30 2006
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
From the first bars of this CD, even an undiscerning ear can tell that this is no teeny-bopper pop music album. Having already taken home Grammy Awards for "Song of the Year" and "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance" (twice), Mayer sets his sights on new categories with this album, which is reminiscent of old-time soul and blues, with just a touch of his pop background for flavor.

The excellent guitar work makes this album even more remarkable, and Mayer proves that he has matured as an artist since his last solo studio album, "Heavier Things", in 2003. Even the mush-mouthed vocals of the past have cleared up, making the lyrics sound even more meaningful. Mayer puts a lot into this album, singing, playing the guitar, writing all but one of the songs, and even producing it, and it's obvious that he's proud of his efforts.

The first single is "Waiting for the World to Change" a soulful track where he finds his inner Curtis Mayfield, but the one that got repeat plays from me was "The Heart of Life", one of the best songs on the album. Listen also to "I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)" (reminds me of the Doobie Brothers); "Stop This Train"; "Bold As Love"; "I'm Gonna Find Another You"; and "In Repair" (my third favorite). Jimi Hendrix fans will also appreciate the cover of "Bold As Love".

Maturity sure sounds good on John Mayer

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Little Sister's John Mayer March 7 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you bought this album expecting to hear another "No Such Thing" or "Bigger Than My Body", you might be disappointed. Now that Mayer's more grown up, his mature perspective on life and the world is definitely noteable on the singer-songwriter's third full-length record.

Mayer puts his bouncy, catchy guitar-pop in the backseat and plays almost straight-up blues. Many of the songs are more similar to the work he did with the John Mayer Trio than with his previous solo efforts. Although definitely different, this is probably one of his best releases to date, truly showcasing him as a MUSICIAN, not a teen idol. It turns out (in case you never noticed before), he is a REALLY talented guitarist, a very introspective and deep songwriter and also, whip-smart and witty. To see another side of the John Mayer you always loved, grown-up and 'waiting on the world to change', this album is a must-own as it is very enjoyable, romantic and complex.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a continuum fan! June 9 2012
By C. Preston TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
John Mayer is such a gifted musician...and he doesn't disappoint us on this his 3rd CD. I think it's a more reflective CD from him given his array of relationships that have unfortunately played out via media. Having said that let's face it ...it's given him alot of good lyrical writing material. The tracks that I like are:

1.I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You): So many components of this song are great from the musical arrangement to his delicate vocal performance. Then marry that with his slow bluesy style that just gives a song it's magic. He like Eric Clapton have a particular gift of being able to play whether it's on an electric guitar or acoustical guitar some of the best bluesy riffs. This song definetly conveys his feelings about loving someone & getting lost in that love.

2.Belief: I love the guitar work in this song so much. Another great vocal and song about relationships & how our own internal belief systems affect the outcomes of most situations we come up against in life. This song differed to me as it has a bit of funk added into the mix of this usual style and then he just kills the electric guitar strumming to let you know John is on board!

3.Gravity: Wow, wow, wow.....yes I could keep saying that. If you want to hear a guitar vertuoso who knows how to play that slowhand blues style so well..then rush to pop this CD in & play this song. This is one of those sexy, sexy love songs, even though it appears lyrically to be about him aging...but that guitar picking & his smooth delivery is just too much. I have to say this song is just simply THE BEST!

4.The Heart of Life: This is just one of those sweet songs...like he's having a conversation with someone he's in love with. It is a song of hope, love, pain, pleasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great music but falls short on the vinyl side May 30 2014
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Had this classic on CD when it was released. Always wanted to hear it on vinyl and like with all new releases in this format you
pop it on and pretty much cross your fingers. Starts off golden, flip it over and nothing but splatty sibilance, clicks & ticks, and
another million reasons to retune the turntable or rewash your record. Then side three makes you forget all your troubles
and by the time it's all over you're pretty much wondering where your money was better well spent.

i think MOV also reissued this and I got a feeling it may be a better pressing.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite album. March 5 2014
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I think I've bought the CD 5 times since it's release, so when I inherited an old stereo cabinet and started looking to start a collection, Continuum was the first to enter the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars he's the best Dec 3 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
didn't know quite what to expect i.e. too pop oriented however, this is a nice mixture of contemporary with great blues riffs. He's one of the best guitarists out there.
