John Mayer, 'Born and Raised'

Soul-searching meets classic folk rock as Mayer takes on his recent past.

Read the RS review: "Mayer is confessional and a little chastened on Born and Raised . . . The stylistic change-up and unburdening tone make for some of the most convincing music of Mayer's career."
