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.


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.


The Search for Everything has very minimal and clean production. It's a lil groovy, but it's kinda basic. It's simple, but pretty good.


Reminds me of falling asleep at a coffee house


I've never been a John Mayer fan heck I didn't even know who the man was prior to listening to this but boy has my opinion changed.

The Search for Everything while not without its flaws is an amazing record and a great deal of what makes work is John Mayer.
His storytelling, singing voice and even playing style is a pleasant surprise.
Great stuff.
