I can’t believe how underrated this album is! So many good songs on here. Easily Mayer’s most consistent work front to back. His guitar work has never been more fierce, bluesy, exciting, and raw. His lyrics have never been more mature, honest, clever, and relevant. The production and vocals are slick and shiny without being too cutesy or corny. This is a great example of modern pop music done right. One of the best mainstream rock records from the 2000s, and probably my favorite album released in 2006 alongside St. Elsewhere by Gnarls Barkley and Stadium Arcadium by RHCP

John Mayer's masterpiece!

He puts aside obsession with the ladies and takes on bigger topics such as society, mature emotional breakups, mortality, and personal expectation.

Everything you think of John Mayer is true EXCEPT for here. This is an absolutely fantastic album from start to finish and nothing else he has done comes remotely close.

Creator here rather than imitator on all other albums. Imagery of slow dancing in a burning room to describe the slow decay and falling out of love.

Stop This Train is gut wrenching focused on the process of aging himself and of his folks

The bluesy guitar and undertones stay consistent throughout. And then shows his guitar chops on a Hendrix cover.

Try to block out your opinion of Mayer and take this for what it is, pure excellence and one of the best albums of the decade.

Never been a big JM fan. It's just a little too cutesy tootsie for me. Fantastic guitarist though, no doubt about that.

This album is extraordinary. It took me a few times of going through it, until I could say its phenomenal. If you are into soft rocking blues with catchy guitar work this is the album for you. Hands down his best album

From Mercury
Don't believe all the negativity on this. For my money this is a very very good album. From top to bottom it really holds up. "Gravity" is a highlight, unbelievable blues guitar there. "Vultures" and "I Don't Trust Myself With Loving You" have a very well executed soul/funk sound with excellent guitar work. The acoustic/folk on "Heart of Life" and "Stop this Train" is stellar , and just really really well done. The blues riffs and leads are pretty much all spot on. The guitar work in "Slow Dancing In A Burning Room" is really incredibly emotional. The song "Dreaming with A Broken Heart" is gorgeous too! And the 2 really socially conscious songs "Waiting On The World To Change" and "Belief" are excellent. The first of those has been a bit overplayed, but still good. And "Belief" may be the emotional and artistic high point of the album (either that or "Gravity").

All in all this record features very good songwriting, great guitar playing, a very varied and symmetrical flow and sound. It's by far John Mayer's best album in my opinion.

Probably most of the criticism this album gets is based off reputation and not the music itself. Yeah, if you only wanna listen to cool music, maybe you'll avoid this because it says John Mayer on it. But that's actually dumb. Although that's a crime I myself may be guilty of. For all I know lady gaga or Katy perry have made BRILLIANT albums that I've never listened to because I just don't go for that. So, I do understand that some pop stars put a certain stigma on records even before you've heard them. But i just wanna say this dude was and is very talented and this is a brilliant brilliant album. When I get enough "points" to do decade lists you'll see this on my top albums of the 2000s definitely!

I will say a couple tracks at the end of the record slow the momentum on the album. The pseudo-soul of "I'm gonna find another you" I just can't get into. But ladies and gentlemen, I assure you this is a very good record!

I fucking love this album. I'm a 12 year guitar player and the arrpegiated technical difficulty John Mayer pulls off truly amazes me. This album, while a poppy mix of blues, coffee-shop sounds, and gentle lyricism, is his most socially mature album to date. Stop This Train is my favorite but I really like his Jimi Hendrix Bold As Love cover. Don't hate me guys, but this is actually good stuff regardless of the artist's reputation.
