John Mayer “Born and Raised”
As many of you may (or may not know), I am a very very very large John Mayer fan. Yesterday his new record Born and Raised was released. I have to say, this is easily one of the best records I have heard all year. The mix of old acoustic style from Mayer with country feelings and a slightly quieter approach on some tunes…it shows some real maturity. John Mayer has been through so much in the last 2 years and this album proves it. I personally love the tracks “Something Like Olivia”, “Face to Call Home” and “Walt Grace’s Submarine Test, January 1967”. When I feel bummed out “Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey”, “Born and Raised” and “Queen of California” really hit the spot.
I really can find nothing wrong with this album. I may seem biased, but I recommend you listen to it yourself and see what I am talking about. It is available on iTunes and Spotify and physical copies are available basically in any record store or chain.
