John Mayer's new album reviewed using 14 GIFs

2013-10-29 12:50
Cape Town - How do you write a review for John Mayer's new album that the internet will appreciate and actually read without boring them to death with fucking long paragraphs and somewhat smart words?

You use GIFs of course.

This is what I did: I got John's new album Paradise Valley and popped it into my PC. Slipped on a sexy pair of earphones. Seductively pressed play. Made some sultry dance moves with my shoulders. Secretly opened Googled and passionately searched for GIFs using the first words that popped into my head while John sang.

For this to work you must press play and listen to this song while looking at the GIFs:

Got it? Good!

Here they are. 14 GIFs that perfectly capture what it feels like when you listen to John Mayer's new album:

It's very country.

It's very cowboy.

It's like summer.

And that feeling of sand falling through your fingers...

It's like diving into the ocean.

And swimming in summer...

It's like dancing with a bear.

It's just this.

And this.

And her.

And him.

And this.

And some of this.

Because in the end it is all about being...

Your "review" is worse than the actual reviews here. This album sucks. nothing like his other stuff- dull and boring. The only thing that was worth a listen to was his duet with Katy of course even that song was ordinary and cliche. 4/10

I totally agree with Kerry, this is a very poor album and is not worth wasting money on. Only half decent song is the JJ Cale rip-off which sounds exactly like JJ Cale.3/10
