I know that this has come to me rather late, but I have only just recently discovered John Mayer and his music. I decided to start right at the beginning and purchase his 2001 debut album first, and I am so glad that I did. 'Room For Squares' has been playing regularly on my iPod ever since.
This is a good old uplifting acoustic pop-rock music, ideal driving music, and filled with catchy, guitar driven songs from a talented vocalist and musician. 'No Such Thing', a song describing the cynicism of parents towards their children pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, is a tune that's been stuck in my head all day, the mellow and nostalgic 'Why Georgia' is very cool, and I must also pick out the cleverly written 'My Stupid Mouth', and mid-tempo love song 'Back To You' as highlights. John sings with a real sincerity, and has a way with words.
I was very impressed with this catchy debut, and plan to buy some more of John Mayer's albums. 'Room For Squares' is perfect to relax with on a warm Summer's day.
Room For Squares is a lovely album to listen to, with some catchy pop tunes, but the problem is, unlike his album Continuum, its not one that you will want to listen to again and again, and some may listen to it once and just leave it in the all songs department, only really listening to it again when it happens to come up. 'Neon' and 'Your Body is a Wonderland' are the only stand out tracks that you will remember from first listen, the others are all good, but feel too mainstream poppy, too under-developed compared to some of the musical genius of his Continuum album, which definitely left me wanting more. However, if you love pop music and fancy a softer experience from Mayer, then this is a very good album for you to snatch up for less than a fiver.
Room for Squares is more than an album. It's an audio autobiography. John sings his soul out on this album, lacing his memories and desires with classic strains of rock and sometimes even folky guitar, all deliciously interlaced with catchy basslines, rockin' drums and perhaps the most important ingredient; musical confidence. Room for Squares is a trip. Your heart breaks with Love Song For No One and soars with Your Body Is A Wonderland. You see yourself strutting your stuff on Peachtree Street at the first guitar-driven bars of Neon. It's a heady day in the country, a night out with the girls. It's a night alone at home crying into your coffee (Great Indoors) and a heartfelt plea to the one you love (Back To You). All in all, it's not an album. It's a life recorded on a disk.
I purchased this record a while back after having listened to it as an MP3. But after enjoying the album at such low quality I pushed to get this record as an LP. I'll keep the review short and sweet not too much of a specific album review.
John Mayer's work on 'Room For Squares' is superb, his playing along with the song itself are very enjoyable and easy on the ear. I often listened to this album whilst doing written work or studying at University. It's very mind cleansing and catchy. The guitar tone is always brilliant (although I am more into that of Continuum) I recommend this album. Give it a chance. If you have come here for the upmost brilliance that is vinyl quality then click buy! There's a reason Vinyls are expensive.
But if you're still having second thoughts, stream it online or have a listen on YouTube. Get a feel for it and then enjoy this in it's form on record.
Let me start by saying i'm very pleased with quality and the delivery of this product. It arrived in no time and in mint condition, so props to amazon.co.uk :) Moving on I absolutely love this debut album by Mayer it has a certain ambiance and hopefulness you'd expect from a young 20 yr old but at the same time displays maturity shown by a 40 yr old. There is so much reassurance by JM right from the start with 'no such thing' and all these positive vibes continue throughout the rest of the album. Something which gradually faded in the subsequent albums and morphed into something more along the lines of "well this is life I guess". Either way this is a fantastic body of work by a then 23 yr old John Mayer I assure you that you will be amazed with his immaculate songwriting skills and melodies at such a young age! If you're looking to get into JM this the perfect album and also do check out the rest of his discography and notice how he gradually evolves into what he is today :) Definitely Recommend this album. Brace yourselves for a chilled out, ear and soul soothing listening session with the Mayer himself! 5 out 5 (wish I could rate it higher)
