We have five of his CDs. Originally it was my wife who liked him, but as I listened to these CDs I began to really like a lot of his stuff. I wonder if some people only listen to one or two types of music. I don't mind if something is commercial as long as it's good. I always did like a well-crafted pop song and admire those who can come up with them. I listen to a lot of other stuff too, that's not commercial. I won't rule something out for being mainstream. The thing about Mayer: he really is a master at creating pop songs. On these songs he plays at well below his technical ability, so the songs come over as pretty relaxed. His playing is very tasteful and he's one of the dwindling few who use the guitar in the context of the modern pop song. He's a very good player and musician.
