I really dislike his new album. His live show "Where the Light is" was really a masterpiece, really got me into his music. The new album, however, is really not my style of music. Every album he seems to change his sound, but this time it's a miss for me personally. Sounds a bit country-like to me, and I'm not a fan of it.
I will answer what I listen to in the guise of a song I like.....
"I like rock, I like soul, I like pop but I never liked disco" funny thing is though I do actually like some disco too Cant help myself.
I always kind of felt about Mayer that he might be something I listen to when I'm 40 but not now. I like Bonamassa though he has some serious guts I also like Robert Cray though I think he is quite an "older audience" guy.
I listen to quite a bit of Indie Rock, I remember talking to someone - Eric Johnson was playing near my hometown - I like him but I am not a huge huge fan and I kind of explained that if I did have the money to blow on EJ I would have used it to see "The Cribs" who I still want to see one day because Eric Johnson is all clean around the edges, he is 100000000 times the guitarist that Ryan Jarman of the cribs is but I love The Cribs for their rawness. If someone said to me "I want to go see Eric Johnson" I would have tagged along but I'm just trying to enjoy my last bit of youth while I can
