iTunes Review

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.”

Totally Amazing!

A lot of people thought he peaked with Continuum and his earlier music but John Mayer has pulled has most amazing album yet with Born and Raised. Each song flows into the other and it's hard to single one out as the key track however there is the single 'Shadow Days', the lead track 'Queen of California', title track 'Born and Raised' and my personal favourite 'Walt Grace's Submarine Test, January 1967' which stand out. Having said that i love the other songs also, "Something Like Olivia' provides an upbeat touch to the album preparing you for the more sombre tracks such as 'Whiskey, Whiskey, Whiskey' further into the album. Mayer delivers a delightful story and it's hard to stop listening to this album once you've started, i personally have listened to it almost on repeat since it's release and it keeps getting better.
I thoroughly recommend this album if you're a fan of laid back, bluesy, classic alt rock or if you don't know what i mean just have a quick preview or better yet just buy it, You won't be dissapointed.
I rate this a solid 5 stars.


I had never purchased a John Mayer album before buying Born & Raised but after listening to this album several times over I quickly went on to buy his entire back catalogue. Every album has exceptional tracks, but Born & Raised is definitely my absolute favorite - such an amazing vibe and I love every track. Have to admit it's been on repeat for almost two weeks because nothing else comes close to being as enjoyable!

He's Back!!

Honestly, this album rocks! The delicate instruments and harmonica perfected with John's voice. The use of country elements added an element of simplicity and peace. With his soulful tone and lyrics, I could totally relate some of my personal experience with some of the songs. I've seen some people dislike John's "long hair" & "country elements", but for me it shows that John is a great musician and able to explore a variety of sounds within his own style. In the end, his creativity in music makes him much more than other pop singers.

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...
