Jack Johnson Shot Reverse


On his last two studio albums, Jack Johnson pushed into darker territory and delved deeper into electric guitar work than ever before in his music career. Now, with his sixth studio album From Here To Now To You, the Hawaii-based singer-songwriter reclaims his role as a maestro of surf folk-rock while expanding and strengthening his songwriting craft. Written entirely on acoustic guitar and ... Read more in Amazon's Jack Johnson Store

Product Description

In Between Dreams is the multi-platinum selling smash from Jack Johnson. The album features classics like "Banana Pancakes", "Better Together" and "Good People".

For a man who gets his biggest kicks surfing the waves and strumming his guitar on a lonely beach in native Hawaii, singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has carved out quite a remarkable career on the mainland. His 2003 album, On and On, debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and subsequently went platinum on the back of hit single "The Horizon Has Been Defeated." The follow-up, meanwhile, seems destined to shine even brighter. The drifting chords and soft voice are still in place, only now Johnson's instinct for melody has sharpened alongside his ability to self-edit. These small concessions make third album, In Between Dreams, his most conspicuous, particularly on tracks like the three-minute relationship drama, "Sitting, Waiting, Wishing," and "Breakdown," a song he originally recorded for Handsome Boy Modeling School's White People album remade here to reveal its full stripped-down loveliness. Imagine all the coconuts it will buy. -- Aidin Vaziri

This music is too mellow, simplistic, shallow, unchanging, etc.

These criticisms are the bulk of negative comments regarding Jack Johnson's Music. I would say that most people who feel this way do so because they listen with unrealistic expectations and lack a general understanding of who Jack really is. This is unfortunate. Jack makes no misrepresentations about who he is, what he believes, and how he wants to make music.

Jacks music IS mellow, with earthy, striped down instrumentation, an overall uniform sound and lyrics that are simple yet thoughtful. There is no reason to expect otherwise. He never released a tricky single that had a sound completely off pace with that of the album. He has never drastically changed his sound (why anyone remotely familiar with Hawaii's laid back lifestyle would expect a drastic overhaul or "progression" I'll never understand). The cover of this album depicts a silhouette of Jack, with guitar in hand, standing next to a tree. Please note that he is not standing on a molten pentagram holding a flying v electric guitar and wearing solid black, nor is he sitting on the hood of a Ferrari, sporting gold chains and a wifebeater. Jack is not fronting.

Yet people still complain that Jack is too mellow. Maybe that's because they really don't want to listen to something mellow. Music has a time and a place. I don't listen to Jack when I have to get going, just like I don't listen to slayer when I want to relax. If you're searching for overly technical guitar, listen to Dream Theatre. If you want deeper lyrics, listen to Wilco. If you want mellow, straightforward, happy, and even family friendly music, give Jack a shot. He'll more than likely give you what you want.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Jack Johnson Fan January 27, 2006
By lsg
Format:Audio CD
A friend clued me into this Hawaiian son's style and I have to say, I didn't give him much thought at first. I loved the voice but the particular song he had me listen to just didn't stick with me.

A recent road trip required hours of good music and I decided to pick up Jack's CD 1) because it was on sale, and 2) I thought it was funny all of his albums had silhouettes or partial glances of Jack, but none had his full face on the cover. This is a guy who is hiding, I thought. Maybe he will reveal himself though his music.

He definitely did.

The whole album is great, my favorite song is "Better Together" and I can't help but hum it as I drive to work in the morning. "Breakdown" also hits home with me. His sweet melodic voice is a change from the James Blunt ritual I had been following for weeks on end on my car's CD player, and his talents definitely transport me somewhere else. Which I think should be the whole point of music.

I am definitely going to buy other albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am back to buying albums because of Jack Johnson October 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Being a devoted iPod user, I had gotten away from buying entire albums. I would download a single song here and there but feel no real need to buy the entire album. This CD has changed that for me. I started with his first single Sitting, Waiting, Wishing and then slowly added more and more song from the album. It is a wonderful CD with music that is mellow, fun, romantic and in general, just enjoyable. What I like best about his music is that it can be all of those things without being sappy, boring or repetitive. He has a wonderful style to him and his voice is a pleasure to listen to. I look forward to his next CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's art to me October 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like this album more the more I listen. The lyrics and the music work together in the way that tells me they came from straight from the writer's right brain. I guess this is so, because I feel transported when I listen. You need both the lyrics and the music to be inspired to have a powerful work that can really move, and this album does that for me.

All the tracks are good. There is not a bad track on this album. I am happy to whole-heartedly support this artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Sessions March 8, 2006
By Beabs
Format:Audio CD
There is no quesiton in my mind about the rating of this album if i could go above 5 stars i would!

I first heard of Jack Johnson back in 2003, i bought his previous albums Brushfire Fairytales and On and On, i must add these are eqaully as good, possibly go as far as to say On and On has the edge.

But back to I.B.D, there is not one track that needs to be skipped. Each track i find takes you someplace you want to go, may have been or reminds you of a memory. Constellations,If I Could, No Other Way, and of course Breakdown are major highlights. I advise anyone to purchase his DVD Weekend At the Greek, to hear some truly inspirational sit ins with ALO(Animal Liberation Orchestra).

Jack Johnson i think is one of the rare artists that seem to be able to really paint a picture in ur mind. And i mean a clear vivid image. Its the ultimate chill out album for barbys on the beach! followd by a surf. If theres one artist to look out for in the future Jack Johnson will be it. I advise you to buy all his albums i can only think of one average song..and thats not even worth a skip!

Enjoy the Ride!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow February 13, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
First off, I'm into metal (thrash, experimental, math and death metal to be exact)... but for some reason when I heard Jack Johnson I fell in love with him. Every song is great. Definately recommend to buy no matter what type of music you like... very enjoyable and peaceful (a little change from the constant screaming and pounding drums in my case).

What genre is Jack Johnson?
Well as I too like your suggestions I have seen it mostly referred to as Rock/Pop. But I guess you can apply your own take to the music.
