Things to be thankful for, #829: John Mayer has cut that pervy looking mustache off. He’s kept the hat, though.

Bad sartorial taste aside, Born And Raised is, for me, the album to beat so far in 2012. The album’s opener, “Queen Of California,” is a pleasant enough ditty, laid back with some nice guitar heroics from our man. In video form, it’s just as laid back. John coolly walks through various scenes, and there’s sort of a surprise ending. I dig this new low-key approach for John, although it’s not like his videos were exactly hotbeds of activity before. Still…

Oh, and it looks like someone has also mentioned his patented guitar “O” face, because he’s stopped using it. More points for Mayer.
