The cover for John Mayer’s 2001 debut album Room For Squares shows what we can expect from the music that lives on it. It shows a shy, but handsome looking man posing awkwardly in front of a guitar. The music on the record sound exactly like the music that guy would make. The shy, poppy sound of a young man trying to make sure he is living it right. The best example of this is my favourite song on the album: ‘3X5’. I can never really explain logically why I love this song, but it will always be a standout. Something about the really high up and down guitar line that opens the song, and the lyrics about missing someone back at home, but then also not wanting to miss your own experience of the world by constantly taking photos for them. It seems an outdated idea in the modern world dominated by ie-inflicting vanity, but it is something that could be more often expressed.
