JOHN MAYER THE SEARCH FOR EV­ERY­THING

DRUM - - Chill Out - – MPHO TSHIKHUDO

The in­ter­net has been awash with ru­mours the US singer-song­writer’s lat­est record is an ode to his ex, Katy Perry. Open­ing track Still Feel Like Your Man does in­deed im­ply he’s not over the pop singer, and You’re Gonna Live For­ever in Me with its pen­sive pro­gres­sion sounds a tad bi­o­graph­i­cal. You de­cide.

Some crit­ics trashed this col­lec­tion, with one even say­ing it’s noth­ing more than back­ground mu­sic. But even though it’s not a patch on Bat­tle Stud­ies (2009), we still think it’s a pretty de­cent al­bum. Lis­ten to the track Love on the Week­end.
