In this week's slate of Rolling Stone reviews, Jon Dolan praises "Shadow Days," the new country-tinged single by John Mayer, who has returned after throat issues and some truly embarassing public comments about his "David Duke cock." "You've got to admire a man who takes the high road, and as Mayer's George Harrison-inscribed guitar melts into the sunset, his contrition is sympathetic," writes Dolan. Also, Jody Rosen hails Nate Ruess, the lead singer of the NYC indie-pop trio fun., as "the Platonic ideal of a 21st-century rock star," and Will Hermes raves about Perfume Genius' haunting, gorgeous new album Put Your Back N 2 It.
