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.

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

A truly great new John Mayer album, with a variety of sounds and musical influence's. He has proved time after time that he's capable of making solid albums and this release shows he hasn't lost any of his capability to do so.

John Mayer's latest is best when the music is backed by strings other than rock guitar - the country swang of "Changing" and "Roll It on Home", or the sweeping orchestras on "Theme from "The Search for Everything"" and "Never on The Day You Leave". The Search for Everything is a search successful if you're Mayer, as it might gain him a few more country followers. Although, none of the experiments on the album make it any more thrilling.
