It’s well with my soul

Introducing Continuum by John Mayer whom is a world acclaimed song-writer who strikes up a roar in the world as his music gets recognition. And he was described as “the seven-time Grammy Award winner who has earned accolades for each album release while selling in excess of 17 million albums worldwide.”

It’s not his achievements that grabbed my attention, it’s his music—insane genius.

Continuum is the album where John Mayer is to described himself with the intention of wanting to be a mature artist.

Let me list 3 reasons as to why you should listen to this album.

1. It’s sound quality is amazing.

The album is described as “psychedelic”, “metaphoric, deep, and soulful”, “soothing and bluesy”, “graceful yet penetrating sound”,  “Very poetic”, “combination of rock, country and blues flow perfectly”.

2. It’s lyrics is very relating and yet hauntingly beautiful.

Personally, his lyrics are very catchy and h as included certain very special simple poetry-like meaning (see below for example) and at the same time has this deep feel that feels like you are hallucinating. The first time I listened to his song, I was entirely encapsulated by his soul-reaching instrument playing and the guitar is and was amazing.  When I asked my a guitarist who should I listen to if I were to practice my guitar skills, he replied:”John Mayer.” This may be the album for you to listen to one of the world’s best guitar players.

“Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want ”

-Waiting on the world to change by John Mayer.

3. It gets you to an insight to his life and his views.

In a sort of complex but lingering mood, his lyrics draw people into an insightful world of his. Most described his lyrics as “very much about love”. While ‘Gravity’ and ‘Vultures’ describes his own muse; ‘Waiting on the world to change’ talks about society ills; ‘Belief’ talks about personal issues and  ‘Dreaming With A Broken Heart’ and ‘I’m Gonna Find Another You’ talks about love.’, ‘Stop This Train’ is for his parents.
