After his massive success with sap singles “Your Body is a Wonderland” and “Daughters,” it would be hard not to see John Mayer as anything more than just another pop artist. But the formation of the John Mayer Trio helped Mayer scratch the creative itch that he felt was being neglected. Upon returning to the studio to record Continuum, he has remained true to himself and has continued down the same blues-rock path as the JMT. Tracks such as “Vultures,” “I Don’t Trust Myself” and his cover of Hendrix’s “Bold as Love” smoulder brightly. Mayer’s breathy delivery remains intact on Continuum and his notable musicianship is allowed to breathe.
