AllMusic

The Search for Everything succeeds because he's not donning a new costume: instead, he's settling into a groove he can claim as his own, and it feels like he's at home.

Entertainment Weekly

If mellowness remains Mayer’s weakness, the brilliance of his best compositions provides a worthy trade-off.

Pitchfork

John Mayer suffers simultaneously from an excess of taste and an oblivious lack of it. It makes his seventh studio album neither sensitive nor scuzzy, just pleasantly bland.

A.V. Club

This 12-song collection of midtempo ballads and amiable easy-listening soul songs has little on its mind beyond providing generically soft, accessible hooks, but it’s far too mired in Muzak-style adult-contemporary arrangements to get anyone very excited, even Mayer’s easy targets.

Everything that a comeback album needs to be -- safe enough to revive the old fans without being a rehashed work of art that makes people question its authenticity. While it doesn't feel remarkable, there are several well-executed and very listenable songs.

While not as obnoxious as it could have been thanks to some interesting harmonic shine, Mayer’s inability to leave his run-down circle and craft melodies that truly embody his emotion leaves this album to only impact those who already worship him. My Score: 105/180 (Okay) = 58/100

I love John Mayer as an artist but why does he keep putting out these boring, uninspired records with a decent solo here and there. The songs aren't even that bad but it just sounds so bland and all pretty much the same.

Fav tracks: Still Feel Like Your Man, Theme from "The Search for Everything

Least fav tracks: Emoji of a Wave (This song title is a crime against humanity), Love on the Weekend, Roll it on Home

This seems like stab at remaining relevant more than an actual attempt at an album. Boring, monotonous, etc etc.
