    Simply put, the world needs more music like this, Mayer Hawthorne’s How Do You Do is one of the best releases this year

  2. 8.0 |   Rave Magazine

    If this album is the sound of searching for love, then I hope Mayer never finds what he’s looking for

  3. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    What’s wrong with a little bit of blue-eyed soul music? Nothing, of course

  5. 7.0 |   Prefix

    Mayer Hawthorne is like a soul McDonald’s. He’s not going to give you the thrills or experimental conceits of finely roasted bone marrow: He’s going to give you the familiar experience of a burger and fries, cooked the same way for years

  6. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Don't expect emotion for the ages, and you'll have fun with this

  7. 6.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    On the whole, How Do You Do is a satisfying effort. Just don’t expect it to entirely replace your crusty Motown LPs

  8. 6.0 |   The Irish Times

    Hawthorne really has what it takes to keep on trucking with soulful heartbreakers
    Read Review

  9. 5.0 |   Slant Magazine

    It's a shame, really, that Hawthorne just doesn't have the vocal chops to pull off an otherwise solid album
