Born and Raisedby John Mayer
The follow-up to 2009's Battle Studies, 2012's Born and Raised is singer/songwriter John Mayer's fifth studio album. The album was delayed during recording due to Mayer's treatment for granulomas found near his vocal cords. Following his surgery, Mayer completed the album and debuted the leadoff single "Shadow Days" in February of 2012. While Mayer was able to finish the album, a recurrence of his granulomas forced him to cancel his tour and abstain from singing indefinitely while he received further treatment. Produced by legendary musician Don Was, Born and Raised features more of Mayer's distinctive and soulful melodic rock with hints of country and blues.

I like everything about this cd. John Mayer NEVER disappoints me.
If you're expecting the John Mayer who has been mastering blues? This CD isn't for you! I can't believe I'm saying this, but this CD had a tit for tat feel of I'll get even with you Taylor Swift and show you who can whine the best in a song, feel to it. Not his best work and not something I'd tell friends to sit and listen to!
This is a wonderful way to hear John Mayer sing from a very personal place. It has a little country, R&B sound... a nice, fresh sound. The lyrics make you want to listen again, and again. I just love his voice. This shows just why he has been so popular for so long.
