Earth's reigning guitar god, John Mayer, is out with his seventh studio album, "The Search for Everything." It reveals a calmer artist taking a measured approach to accessible funk-laced songs.
This is a confident album that feels less like an artistic exploration and more like a plate of musical comfort food. There are few unexpected turns. The arrangements are solid, if a slight bit predictable.
"Still Feel Like Your Man" is the track that stands out most — the easy-to-feel rhythm is accessible and the lovelorn message is a good fit. Slow breaks give way to a danceable hook and a sunny outlook for Mayer.
