Sealed, Out Of Print 2006 2LP Original. Mayer Makes A Complete Departure From Previous Territory With This, His Third Album. For Some Time His Cameo Roles With The Likes Of Eric Clapton, Herbie Hancock, B.B. King, Buddy Guy And John Scofield Have Hinted That His Musical Tastes And Skills Were Far Broader Than His Previous Recordings Had Suggested. On "Try" He Rises To The Challenge With Muscular Playing That's His Best On Record. Not Just That, But There's A Palpable Grit To Try! — And A Sultry Smoothness To The Mellow Numbers — Unheard On His Previous Studio Albums. That Alone Would Make Try! Not Just Noteworthy, But A Step Forward For Mayer. But What Makes It More Remarkable Is That Mayer Takes An Even Greater Risk By Relying On New Material For This Album. There Are Two Older Songs — "Something's Missing" And The Hit "Daughters," Both From Heavier Things — But The Rest Consists Of Covers Of Jimi Hendrix And Ray Charles ("Wait Until Tomorrow" And "I Got A Woman," Respectively) And New Songs That Showcase Mayer's Earthier, Blues-Rock Direction. With "Try" Mayer Has Expanded What He Can Do As A Musician And A Writer And In The Process Has Definitively Separated Himself From The Pack. Recommended.
