Music for 11/23/16!!! Dessert, John Mayer, Eminem

@@@ Dessert: Eyes Wide Shut (Dessert, 2016).  Let’s get Thanksgiving started with dessert!  I could work in the marketing department (and then set it on fire).  This is a party biscuit with this decade electro influences as well as a distinctly ’80s vibe, especially in the vocal arrangements.  I’m not sure I could tell you about, or it is about anything but it’s the vocal hook they’re going with.  A big rock guitar solo in the middle followed by a synth mod wheel solo, oh that was the end, it just sort of solos out and splats.  Kinda a vague poppy thing, not my favorite type of dessert.

Stream it up over here, it was hard to find tidbits.

@@@ John Mayer: Loving on the Weekend (Columbia, 2016).  Silky soft rock is how it’s blurbed on Apple Music.  I guess putting silky, toilet paper soft rock would not work as far as getting people to listen.  I’m getting the feeling John Mayer desperately wants people to love him again, everything here is just so consumable (to keep up with the Thanksgiving theme)  These oohs and aahs are like grandma’s secret stuffing.  This beat is like like a big gravy boat full of grizzy, smooth turkey gravy.  The echoed guitar chords are like your bloated stomach.  Okay, I’m done.  He wants you to love him on the weekend but I’m sure he’ll take it on other days as wel.

@@@ Eminem: Infinite (WEB Entertainment, 2016).  Likable and horrible Eminem is back with a single following his massive election day lyrical bomb.  It’s kind of a retro beat and I don’t think this is Eminem on the mic, is this Eminem?  I guess it is, maybe he’s sober.  Ah, I see from the GoogleTube this is a remastered track from Eminem’s debut before he got all the way he is now.  And that explains the retro beat as well.  Non-hostile, blown mic Eminem is all right.
