I heard Who Says for the first time this morning. Liked it quite a bit.

I'm not much of a John Mayer fan, but the full album was posted for streaming on Rhapsody.com this morning, so I gave it a listen.

I liked it more than previous albums, and will probably pick this up on sale at some point.

This album is fantastic.

Heartbreak Warfare, Half of My Heart, and Assassin are stand out tracks.

this is my least favorite track on the album, unfortunately. Doesn't do the original justice at all.

Most of the tunes can also be heard on youtube, I don't think I like it as much as continuum, but it is growing on me. The cover art is atrocious. Favs for me so far, assassin and all we ever do is say goodbye.
