iTunes Editors’ Notes

John Mayer's debut had been a rousing success, but it posed a question: was he a lite-rocker in the mold of David Gray or a blues guitar-shredder like his hero Stevie Ray Vaughan? On Heavier Things, he's squarely the former. While he peels off the occasional solo on tracks like "Only Heart" and "Come Back to Bed," the record is distinguished by its warm and fuzzy moments. The GRAMMY®-winning "Daughters" advocates considerate parenting over a lilting acoustic waltz, while the summery swing of "Clarity" is brisk coffeeshop pop. Mayer was earning a reputation for his fiery live shows around this time, but his sophomore effort is better suited to a quiet evening at home.

Thoughtful and Deep

Heavier Things was the first John Mayer cd I ever listened to, and it was incredible. John Mayer pretty much sums up many dark and worrying things in his songs like Bigger than my Body, Clarity, Wheel, Daughters and New Deep. There is so much praise that this cd deserves, but I just want people to take a few minutes and listen to it. It's so easy to connect to, no matter who you are. (Please don't be intimidated by my nickname, but I do think highly of John Mayer.)

After making his introduction as a sensitive, acoustic-styled songwriter on 2001's Room for Squares, John Mayer steadily widened his approach over the subsequent years, encompassing everything from blues-rock to adult contemporary in the process. Arriving during the tail end of teen pop's heyday, he crafted pop music for a more discerning audience, spiking his songcraft with jazz chords and literate turns of phrase. The combination proved to be quite popular, as Room for Squares went triple platinum...
