Blues-tinged Soft Rock music with minimal effort. The strength of this album is mostly due to its competency. In terms of substance, it’s anemic. That’s not to say that there’s not a lot to like here. Songs like “Still Feel Like Your Man”, “Moving On and Getting Over”, and “Rosie” are catching and enjoyable listens. However, that doesn’t change the lack of anything exceptional here. It’s an enjoyable but safe album.

On a more personal level, I enjoy this album and I’ll probably be playing several of these tracks over and over again for some time. “Helpless” is easily the best song on the album in my opinion. However, I feel like this album lacks direction and genuine effort similar to his Battle Studies album, which is easily his worse album. This is better than that, and I think it’s better than his last album Paradise Valley, but I think John Mayer doesn’t really know what he wants to be anymore. And that’s sad.
