It's not the worst song ever, but it could be a lot better. It just sounds like he didn't put too much effort into it, and that chorus and the build-up is so generic "country" sounding. This is only sixty seconds though, and it seems like it could get better.

Glad you like! seriously check out his whole album, loads of cool songs.
My Shore is great, and he has a song called Helen which, on the album, runs into a short cover of I'm On Fire.

Don't know why he chose that one to be the single, I thought Shadow Days was one of the weaker songs he had been singing recently. I was hoping Queen of California or A break in the clouds would be the single, but like always, Mayer's songs on the radio are generally second rate compared to the rest of the ones on the album, so maybe thats why he picked it.

The song isn't as bad as I was expecting. I still think the vocals are lacking. I know he doesn't need to overdo it, but it sounds so underwhelming here. I also don't like the chorus much for the reasons I already stated. Overall not bad, I liked the solo, and I'm sure the rest of the album will be better.

I love the album art, i was gonna say, someone wants a packaging grammy this year. The only times his picture wasnt on the cover of the album we got continnum and try, so here is hoping that greatness trend continues.

Although if you look at the R, it looks like he used The Price is Right font.

I never really cared all that much for it in the past, but I've gotten really into Heavier Things recently.

I did sort of the same thing with Room for Squares about six or so months ago.

yeah i just listened to them all. I honestly feel so excited about this. I found battle studies to be really, really disappointing, but I love all of the previews so far.
Especially Born and Raised and Queen of California.

Bring on May 25...

something like olivia has a nice vibe. it sounds really "home'y" to me. and yes, i agree with you on the battle studies disappointment. but in a way, that one was a good album too. this one though, is more of my taste. much like continuum.

Yeah forgot about Olivia. Another great track.
Yeah I know tonnes of people loved the last one, but I feel like Born and Raised sounds more honest, for want of a better word. Maybe more soulful? I dunno, but I'm seriously enjoying the previews.
My mum did too. She said it sounds like country, but without the annoying twang. Ha ha.

Edit: for dumb typing...
