iTunes Review

Mayer finds a little forgiveness on his search for everything. The first delivery of songs from his rolling album release were serious and introspective, like diary entries from a man in reflection. On Wave Two, he looks forward, shrugging off some of that inner torment in the name of fun. Loose, lively, and delightfully diverse, it finds him dabbling in funk, folk, blues, and soul, with support from John Mayer Trio. Can you spot the Primitive Radio Gods reference in “Still Feel Like Your Man”?

Customer Reviews

👎🏼

Relieved from the nostalgia of missing Mayer songs, I find myself disappointed at the first two waves. So far, there isn’t a song that reaches out and grabs your souls and makes you play it on repeat all day. The title of the album, The Search For Everything, translates into the first 8 songs: searching for anything he can to make a song worth a crap. So far it’s a failure, but I will keep listening in hopes of hearing another Mayer great.

Scattered Targets

I’m loving the idea of “waves” of releases. Sadly, these songs on Wave 2 are either condescending or playing to a newer, younger
audience that’s ok with diminished lyricism. It’ll sell to some, particularly those who feel like emojis are adequate communication. The hooks are catchy if not good. I’m waiting for the JM that spoke to me to resurface.

Funky

Instead of showing his guitar chops by launching into powerful solos, John has recently chosen the more subtle approach by playing intricate and soulful licks during the verses. This creates a very laid back and feel good experience for any music lover. You can also hear some of the old John Mayer, which is relieving.

After making his introduction as a sensitive, acoustic-styled songwriter on 2001’s Room for Squares, John Mayer steadily widened his approach over the subsequent years, encompassing everything from blues-rock to adult contemporary in the process. Arriving during the tail-end of teen pop’s heyday, he crafted pop music for a more discerning audience, spiking his songcraft with jazz chords and literate turns of phrase. The combination proved to be quite popular, as Room for Squares went triple-platinum…
