    While Mayer is a very capable musician, the hushed, back-of-the-throat affectation of his vocals grates after awhile, as does his overarching pretentiousness. This isn't the worst album ever, but I also think that in 20 years Mayer will only be remembered on "Soft Rock of the 00's" compilations sold on late night tv.

  1. This body of work will be a wonderland of hits in time.
  2. Those who just enjoyed the sound and feel of Room for Squares should feel right at home.

    As Mayaer talks himself in circles you hear an artist facing massive success, and retreating from it. [Dec 2003, p.112]
