his debut was and still is is impressive, sure, but some of the vocals sound a bit... edgy looking back from now. he hasn't got the greatest voice on the planet to work with, but his singing technique improved a lot since then

He said that when he was recording his debut album,he wasn't really concentrating on his vocals too much."I just opened my mouth and tried my best to sound like Curtis Mayfield",he said biggrin In no way is he a top notch vocalist,but I think he did a superb job on that album.That album is my favorite by him.

I especially like the title track.

Out of interest, have you ever listened to any of the stuff he's done that's not part of his own discography? I'd recommend his collaboration with Busy P on the song "Genie".

Me too smile I love the acapella intro.This is one of my Top 5 favorite songs by him.

A friend of mine,who is a huge fan,always sends me songs in which Mayer collaborates with others.I have heard a few of those tracks.

With Benny Sings? That's a good song. The album is really shaping up nicely.

Y'know, it's funny, I know these guys are shooting for Synth Funk, but it always sounds like Doobie Brothers-style Yacht Rock to me. No complains though, it's cool.

A certain kind of mellow.

I don't get that vibe from their previous two albums, but yes I can see some subtle Michael McDonald traits in the new single, don't know if intentional or not


but to my ears Toast 2 Us is way more shaped after the Isley Brothers, mainly Between The Sheets
and also an ounce from May I from their 1985 album (the first after the split)

Mayer has just released his latest solo single from his forthcoming new album. I can't post the video here at the moment but the song is called "The Game" and gives a little indication as to what to expect from the new album.

As far as I was aware, the solo album would be a couple of months later. But that's outdated information. And quite frankly, the sooner the better.

You ever hear Mayer Hawthorne covering Chromeo? Or Chromeo's remix of Mayer's song "A Long Time"? They both seem to compliment each other's work really well yet still offer their own unique thing.
