Battle Studies poll  
Dude, I'm a horrible mod! Sorry about that, lots of health problems and what have you. But anyways, "Battle Studies" came out!! What did everyone think of it? What is your favorite track?

For me, I absolutely LOVE it! It's been in my car's cd player since I bought it. Best track on there is "Edge of Desire"! Also I love "Heartbreak Warfare" "Assassin" and "Do You Know Me?" The ones I'm still kinda eh on is "Half of My Heart" (mainly for Taylor Swift, sorry not a fan!!), Perfectly Lonely, and War of My Life. I like "All We Ever Do Is Say Goodbye" but like one person said, towards the end it gets too repetitive and I have to change the song. But I want to hear from you all! So leave a comment and let me know what song you love and what song you can do without!!

Current Mood: awakeawake
Current Music: John Mayer // Edge of Desire

"Assassin" is pretty much the best thing ever. It's edgy and I think it's going to be amazing live. "Edge Of Desire" is a close second.

I was pleasantly surprised by "Half Of My Heart" because I was pretty convinced Taylor Swift was going to ruin it for me - not a big fan of hers, personally.

Least favorite/"blah" songs: "Friends, Lovers Or Nothing" and "All We Ever Do Is Say Goodbye"

Assassin is my fav, too. Can't get into Friends, Lovers, or Nothing .. I realize he was inspired by the Beatles, but it feels like more of a rip off song instead. Not impressed by Edge Of Desire, and the Crossroads remake is so "studio-y" .. not raw and bluesy like I thought it would be... Half Of My Heart is SOOOOO Fleetwood Mac - ish and I love it ... getting into War Of My Life and Do You Know Me a little more .. All We Ever Do Is Say Goodbye is too repetitive and too looonnggg ... Not that into Who Says (so mediocre) and Perfectly Lonely is good but not that great .. Overall, it's my least fav of any of his albums. Still LOVE him though and I got tickets to see him in March. Hope he plays some of his oldies. And totally looking forward to VH1 Storytellers!

I haven't heard yet. I just know that it taped today in Brooklyn, NY. It's about time he did one! Can't wait :)

Best tracks: Heartbreak Warfare, All We Ever Do is Say Goodbye (apparently I'm in the minority there so far), Assassin.

Worst track: Half of My Heart and probably Who Says.

Overall this isn't my favourite cd, but it's still JM and so it has earned a spot in my heart and on my mp3 player.

Who Says and All We Ever Do is Say Goodbye are probably my least favorite songs. In fact, every time I listen to it I always skip over Who Says. Just can't get into it. Crossroads is alright...but I do agree it sounds to sudio-y. I love the song live though!

I'm excited to hear all the songs live now though! March can't come fast enough! :D

The two best songs for me have to be Assassin and All We Ever Do is Say Goodbye by a clear mile. The music in Assassin reminds me of the song "Sanctuary" from Secret of Mana for the SNES. That music freaked me out as a kid. Honorable mentions: War of My Life, Half of My Heart, Edge of Desire, and Heartbreak Warfare. But who knows, another song could grow on me. When I first heard Clarity and I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You) I hated them but now they're two of my very favorites.

Weakest song has to be Who Says for me. =( It doesn't feel like it fits in with the other songs to me.

I love Perfectly Lonely, Assassin, Edge of Desire, and Friends, Lovers or Nothing. Half of my Heart is good too. And I love his cover of "I'm On Fire".

I could definitely do without "Do You Know Me" and "War of My Life". Crossroads is eh, although I'm sure it would be great live.

I'm On Fire is AWESOME. :) And I agree that Crossroads would probably kick ass played live!

Did you watch when he did Crossroads with Eric Clapton on Good Morning America? EPIC!

I love the new album, though its not so new anymore. My fav song is Assassin. And i totally agree about Half of my heart, not a big fan of taylor "But im not gonna talk about that in my monolouge" ewwww. For the 2 months after i bought it and loaded it onto my ipod it was on repeat, John is one of the only artists that i can listen to and enjoy listening to for over like 2 days.
