#johnmayer #sobrock
The 80's vibe is strong with this album. But does it fit to John Mayer's music? Why did he even go for this retro style? Here's my opinion on the new album: Sob Rock.

** Why the ANZEIGE (=Ad) message? **
According to german laws everyone has to mark their videos as advertisements as soon as there's a single "subject relevant" product, tag or link in it. Even if you didn't get paid for making that video. Sounds confusing and it really doesn't help the viewer to see which is a paid review and which isn't.
--- The line of truth: Is this actually a paid review? No it isn't. (I update this line for every video).
