Biography by Andrew Leahey
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 ... Read more in Amazon's John Mayer Store

5.0 out of 5 stars born and raised is incomparable 8 Jan 2013
By Megs
Format:Audio CD
no, i do not think born and raised is better then john mayers older albums. but i do not understand why it should be compared to them, it is completely different to his older stuff and i personally think it has more emotion and more honesty to it. all of john mayers albums to me are amazing, and this album is no different. this album is by no means better than say room for squares or continuum but it is a good deal more interesting. in this album we can clearly see where john mayer is in his life, the things he had wanted to do and the things he still does. the album itself reminds me of old people, old people who remember stuff and tell stories about things that happened a long time ago, as if they are that old that nothing else is going to really happen ever again. if you buy this album you will not regret it, i promise. (me and my friend listen to it when she comes over for macaroni cheese)

5.0 out of 5 stars I really like this album 22 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got into John Mayer through one of my boys who is a huge fan. This album is well crafted and IMHO better than his earlier stuff. Several reviewers have compared this work to that of other artists and for my 2 penny's worth I get a sort of feel of Bob Dylan.

I enjoyed it more on CD than I did streaming on iTunes during the free preview. I think it demands to be heard on a full size hifi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Born And Raised 21 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
Where this is nothing like his previous work the listener should keep an open mind as this piece of work is a HUGE breath of fresh air!.
It screams classic american down to earth none pretentous organic and timeless genius! very Allman brothers with a hint of Neil Young and the softer edge of the Black Crowes.
If you have ears that are not painted on this album will please and could well be a future classic. Sit back and ENJOY!!!!!!!.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album 8 Jan 2013
By Phil B
Format:Audio CD
An excellent album. Probably Mayer's second best album to date. A real mellow tone underlines each track on the album. Each track on the album also has its own unique flavour and this album really is a joy to the ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the boring title, this a cracking album! 23 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
Having listened to all of John Mayers albums now, i can say that this is actaully musicaly very well put together. Its far away from Heaiver Things and Room For Squares, with only some minor comparisons to Continuum. But the music is very mature and has a raw feel to it, rather than over produced sounds of some of his earlier material. I wont love this like i love Heaiver Things, but i will love this for the fact that its far away from anything else he has composed. Grab this album and enjoy it for its differences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, just leaving me wanting........ 24 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Been listening to the new cd since Monday, the more I listen the more I keep cross-referencing other cd's that own from the 70's. It's a very good cd, really well recorded, but just leaves me wanting!

Just wish he'd play more guitar (the boy can play) DAMN he's GOOD live........... Is a tour in the UK in the pipeline? He's in his element live...................

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop playing it 31 Mar 2014
By gail
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this after getting tickets to see him at the O2. New to John Mayer. Absolutely love this album. It grows on you the more you play it. He has one of the best voices I've heard and his guitar playing is just wonderful. Best songs Speak for me, Something like Olivia, if I ever get around to living, whiskey, whiskey, whiskey, Queen of California.
