Biography

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.

Jack's new release 'To The Sea' feels like a day at the beach. It has a more raw, upbeat feel than his other CDs, but I think thats a good thing. There's nothing groundbreaking here, but Jack is not a groundbreaking artist. He is true to himself, and I think the direction he went with this CD is positive. There is definitely a noticeable influence from Zach Gill on this record, but I dont think that is a bad thing. Some people will complain that he's moving away from the simpler acoustic stuff, but for me it is a welcome change. Jack has turned it up a notch from Sleep Through The Static, IMO. Top to bottom its a rock solid CD that almost any Jack Johnson fan will like.

You And Your Heart - 8/10 - Took a few listens to grow on me, but its solid and a great opener to the CD. Great video, too.

To The Sea - 8/10 - A home run. Funky, fun, and just plain good. Love the guitar work near the end. Very Hendrix-like. This will be new vintage Jack in a few years.

No Good With Faces - 9/10 - I LOVE this song. One of the best on the CD, IMO. A simple song with a haunting feel. But lets not get ahead of ourselves, theres more songs to review...

At Or With Me - 10/10 - Wow. Best song on the CD, IMO. This song was recorded in a single take in the studio as a demo, but they liked the raw feel so much they put it on the CD. Very upbeat, very catchy, and a great live jam. Unlike anything hes ever done. Love the blues harp that comes in unexpectedly towards the end. I hope he keeps this in his live setlist. Oh-Oh-Oh-Ohhhh!

When I Look Up - 4/10 - I wish this was a longer song, and the length is the only reason I give it a low score. Could have been left off the CD and it wouldnt have made a difference. It sounds like an intro, and thats how I see it...

Let's cut to the chase: if you have all Jack's other albums you've already bought this album or will (and you should, it's essential Jack johnson). If your interest in Jack has waned after the Curious George album (which is hard to consider a "true album" IMO) and the more melancholy Sleep Through the Static then I would definitely recommend this, it may renew your love of Jack. Although this album features all the typical elements from Jack's previous albums, I would say it is more akin to "On and On", not as poppy as "In Between Dreams" but more upbeat and enjoyable than "Sleep Through the Static." People (critics especially) give Jack alot of grief for playing the same style of laid back songs and not mixing it up or being "edgy" enough. Personally, I respect Jack mostly for NOT giving in and pandering to the forces and expactations of the biz. I grow tired at times of artists I initially like but get pretentious trying to push the envelope and reinvent themselves only to lose sight of what made them great to begin with. Ultimately, I think all anyone wants are good songs with good melodies, and that's exactly what Jack delivers.
I think "To the Sea" will rank as some of Jack's best work. I loved the catchy upbeat "You and Your Heart" which kicks off the album. I was a little worried upon my first listen when the following two tracks were slower and more melancholy. They're good songs, but I was afraid given that the album is dedicated to his father who recently died of cancer it would sink into being a sad slow album. NOT SO!

I have been a Jack Johnson fan since he was just a good surfer who was great at selecting tunes for his soundtracks. I must say that this is the first album he has released that has really disappointed me. I keep hoping that it is going to grow on me, kind of like how Sleep Through the Static did after getting more accustomed to Johnson's electric guitar playing, but have just not been able to get into it. This album really feels like a compilation of the rare tracks that I would skip on his previous albums.

Overall, this album is OK at best, 2.5 stars. I think the title should have been, Stranded in the Sea: Rarities, B-Sides, and Other Songs that Were Not Good Enough for My Previous Albums. I just cannot understand where Jack was at on this one. If you are looking to buy a good Jack Johnson album, just buy any of his previous albums, including the surfing soundtracks, and you will happy with your purchase.

The new Jack Johnson CD has some of his best, and worst songs.
1. To the Sea- best song on the CD amazing 10/10
2. You and Your heart-9/10 awesome single catchy, vintage Jack, while changing it up at the same time
3. No Good with Faces-6/10 it was ok nothing special
4. At or with Me- 9/10 great song 2nd best of the album, upbeat
5. When I look up- 5/10, it's like 30 seconds there's not much to review
6. From the Clouds-8/10 great song love the sound
7. My little girl-8/10 touching, and great guitar
8. Turn Your love-7/10 decent sound kind of repetitive
9. The Upsetter-6/10 not bad kind of annoying
10. Red Wine Mistakes, Mythology- 8/10 great rock sound, great way to change it up, love the harmonica
11.Pictures of People taking Pictures- 4/10, kind of annoying, it's amazing how many times he says pictures of people taking by far worst song of the CD
12.Anything but the truth-6/10, it's a sweet sound, but I feel like I've heard it before, unoriginal
13.Only the Ocean-6/10, again sweet sound good guitar, but this feels like twenty of his other songs
14.Better together (new version)-9/10 great rendition of the song

All in all this is a very good CD I would give it a 7/10, It had it's moments where I was just smiling while I was listening, and others where I was a little frustrated. But Jack did come through for a fifth time. I feel like this is probably his third best album, behind In Between Dreams, and Sleep through the Static. He is showing a lot more of his guitar skills which I like. The songs are moving to becoming more and more complicated, great guitar rifts and piano, but he still has those goofy three chord love songs which I love. It was a little repetitive, but that's to be expected. All in all great job, I'm a huge Jack fan and he did not disappoint.

Why is this CD $40.98?
Probably has an extra track.
