It's no secret that John Mayer is a 21st Century Fox, wining and dining women all through the 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 weird one-man band cover of "Crossroads," turning Clapton's contained Cream masterwork into something about vibe, not virtuosity.
You see, for John Mayer, blues pop singer extraordinaire, Battle Studies is nothing less than an exercise in love and heartbreak; heartbreak warfare in fact, as the album’s leading song would make clear. Not that this is any real surprise, given that Mayer has been nothing if not a keen surveyor and participant in the relationship game, both as a songwriter and public personality. Of course, for self declared Hard Men, Mayer is, and always will be, a bit of a pussy. And there’s more than a grain of truth in that.
