I love John Mayer, but his new video for “Shadow Days” has got to be one of the most boring videos released so far this year.
Lacking any focus or plot, the video shows him just walking around and hanging out with his guitar. Literally nothing happens.
“Shadow Days” is like the less inspired version of the “I Won’t Give Up” video — as simple, but without the powerful imagery and any real connection from the singer.
Mayer is a great musician though, and I like “Shadow Days”, so I’m still looking forward to his upcoming album.
