"Shadow Days"

John Mayer's new LP was held for months while the singer recuperated from throat surgery, and the break seems to have given Mr. "David Duke cock" some time for self-reflection. "I'm a good man with a good heart/Had a tough time, got a rough start," Mayer assures over country-tinged soft rock. 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.
