Sound: With this amazing acoustic record, John Mayer shows that he is one of our generation's greatest musicians. The sound on this album is amazing. He completely re-does each song and makes it as if you are listening to something brand new. The record is great, and I reccomend it for anyone who enjoys listening to great guitar. // 10

Lyrics: As always, Mayer plays with words like some of us would with ourselves. The lyrics are great and match the music perfectly. The mood of each song is set perfectly with each word. Every time you hear one of the songs you find yourself asking where Mayer comes up with this stuff. Truly a great lyrisist, and it is displayed in The Village Sessions. // 10

Overall Impression: The Village Sessions is a great companion to Continuum that came out last year. The record's acoustic versions cannot compare to the Continuum versions. Mayer's acoustic guitar rivals some of the greatest to ever play. He truly is one of today's best musicians. This is definitely not your little sister's John Mayer, but even she would say his music's moving in the right direction. // 10
