Review

Review Text It’s no secret that John Mayer is a 21st Century Fox, wining and dining women all through tabloid headlines, so it’s about time he delivered an album that traded upon his loverman persona -- and Battle Studies is that record in spades. Retaining more than a modicum of the slick, soul-blues undertones of Continuum, Mayer fashions a modern groove album, a record that maintains a smooth seductive vibe so thoroughly it spills into a one-man band cover of “Crossroads.” Mayer remains somewhat of a disciple of Slowhand, but he shows an unusual interest in the big AOR stylings of Journeyman, along with Stevie Ray Vaughan’s In Step, creating a coolly clean blend of synths and Strats, one that’s as much about texture as it is about song…something perfectly appropriate for a make-out album like this. Sometimes, Mayer dips too heavily toward the texture, but he can’t resist a good, tight melody and builds the bulk of Battle Studies upon them: the elegant “Half of My Heart,” the softly soulful “Perfectly Lonely.” Here, Mayer is effortlessly seductive and somewhat irresistible, and it’s easy to see why the ladies love cool John. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
