Editors’ Notes

Born and Raised is a set of organic cowboy songs dreamed up under a starry night sky. Songs like “Queen of California” and “Shadow Days” reflect a countrified worldview. “If I Ever Get Around to Living” shimmers with intricate arpeggios and gentle backup vocals. Melancholy harmonicas inform the mood of “Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey” and “A Face to Call Home.”

Customer Reviews

Wishing for the John Mayer of old....

Though I do like this new sound of John Mayer, I still yearn for the Room for Squares/Continuum days of old...This stuff won't hit the radio and be big hit-wise. I miss that Bigger than my Body feel about his music, wish he'd go back to that stuff. This is a little too folksy for me, but, that said, he is my fave artist so of course I will buy and listen to it. Shadow Days is great!

Beautiful Sounds

An album worth buying in its entirety, the kind of album you listen to from start to finish as an album. A musical story. Sometimes foot tapping, sometimes reflective, always beautiful, always John Mayer. Highly recommended!

Born again and raised to a new level!

The wait has been worthwhile folks. This is without a doubt the best album that John Mayer has released, that might seem like a big claim, but one listen will justify it. His venture into the pseudo-country/folk territory has brought along a deeper feeling to all of his songs. The starting track 'Queen of California' starts the 'folk feeling' that is ever-present throughout the majority of the album, making you subject to the involuntary tapping of toes for the next 40 something minutes. 'Something like Olivia' brings back John Mayer's sound reminiscent of Continuum, but gives it a country twang that builds upon the sound. The standout track on the album would have to be 'A Face to Call Home', bringing a very familiar John Mayer Ballad to the album, filled with slow acoutsic build-ups and a guitar delay solo that gives the song an almost transcendent feeling. My picks on the album are 'Love is a Verb' and 'Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey'. This is a must buy for any John Mayer fan and is definitley one of the best music releases so far this year.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
