List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

John Mayer is one of the best guitarists and best blue artists of all time. Since he's such an influential artist, let’s rank the best John Mayer albums, with the help of your votes. Although he began his career as a duo with Clay Cook in 1997 as the Lo-Fi Masters, Mayer eventually went solo, and was signed to a record deal after a 2001 South By Southwest Festival appearance. Soon after, his first two poppier albums -- Room for Squares (2001) and Heavier Things (2003) – achieved multi-platinum success, while his sound has expanded with blues, rock, pop, and later in his career, slight country influences.

This John Mayer discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top John Mayer albums can be found at the top of the list. To make it easy for you, we haven't included John Mayer singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest John Mayer album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite John Mayer album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.
