John Mayer: The Search For Everything

2017

John Mayer decided to release his latest album in three “phases” as two separate EP’s with and the final version including all of the songs. I think this was actually a pretty cool idea because it feels like it gave listeners, myself included, more time to soak in the newer music.  This is a great addition to Mayer’s collection of music that remains rooted in bluesy rock. One think I want to note and it is something I have seen other people say is, the final song on the album, “Your Gonna Live Forever In Me”, has this weird similarity to the song “You’ve Got a Friend In Me” from the original Toy Story Movie…I’m not sure if there is a sort of influence there or what but the song is strikingly similar in tone, instrumentation, and rhyme scheme.
