iTunes Review

You can’t blame Jack Johnson for being a happy guy. Pop star/surfer/filmmaker who lives in Hawaii — and, judging by much of this 2005 release, deeply in love to boot. “Better Together” and “Banana Pancakes,” for example, are island-flavored mash notes delivered with childlike innocence. “Do You Remember” is a simple, country-tinged reflection on a long-term relationship that has strengthened over the years. Johnson is even more rewarding when he momentarily shakes himself out of his bliss: The minor-keyed “Sitting, Waiting, Wishing” has a bit more bite, while “Staple It Together” is a soulful strut about missed opportunities. To his credit, Johnson has his sound down to a science at this point, a fetching blend of pop, folk, soul, blues, and Hawaiian music that’s as mellow as the day is long and as soothing as the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.

TBTR: Track by Track Review of In Between Dreams

I listened to this cd everyday last year. This was the first I had ever heard of Jack Johnson, but I have become a huge fan and own all of JJ's cds. I consider this album his best work. 1.) Better Together - Speechless. Jack's creative chord progression with his heart-felt lyrics make a perfect opener to this album. There is not a whole lot else I can say except that it is one of the top five songs on this album (5 stars). 2.) Never Know - The drums and bass appear first here, and bring a more upbeat feel to the set. Good lyrics, good tunes. (4 stars) 3.) Banana Pancakes - Another top-five tune. Cool guitar licks throughout. VERY VERY Catchy. Once again, there is not much to say except that it keeps the momentum going. (5 stars) 4.) Good People - Jack knows how to play guitar (obviously). Excellent guitar work as well as a steady beat and VERY VERY catchy verse and chorus. The words are simple, but they fit perfectly. (5 stars) 5.) No Other Way - Jack quiets everything down for a simple tune complemented by some pretty and relaxing guitarwork. Very good lyrics. (5 stars) 6.) Sitting, Waiting, Wishing - This is the big single. Nice use of "7" chords (like Am7, G7, F7, and C7). Even though most of these tunes have been in the same key so far, Sitting Waiting Wishing has it's own style and sound. Another one of the top-five. (5 stars) 7.) Staple It Together - Cool and confident verse followed by a simple but appropriate chorus. Once again, Jack Johnson plays guitar and plays it well and has two main licks overlapping for a very cool sound. (5 stars) 8.) Situations - The tune is catchy, but the lyrics are borderline corny and somewhat confusing. Musically, the ending is very creative as it fades into another key and then fades out. All-around decent, and very short. (4 stars) 9.) Crying Shame - Guitarwork is once again very creative and cool. Catchy once more. Not a whole lot to say except it is good. (5 stars) 10.) If I Could - Wow. This one catches you off guard. Even though Jack's voice is very soft and deep, he can still show emotion. This song is a great dose of reality and is somewhat sad. It is also a little bit short, but is a perfect little interlude song. (5 stars) 11.) Breakdown - The lyrics are not incredible, but the tune plus guitarwork equals a masterpiece here. This is a perfect way to keep this cd going in the right direction. (4 stars) 12.) Belle - Another little interlude with some musical creatively with the accordion. There are only about ten words and half of them are in French. Another key to key change at the end followed by a fade. Nice Work. (4 stars) 13.) Do You Remember - This is the original "Photograph" (Nickelback) song. Jack reviews some of his fonder memories over a catchy tune and five-star guitarwork. (5 stars) 14.) Constellations - ...Wow. I mean wow. Is there a better way to wrap up such an album? Once again, the tune is catchy and the lyrics are aimed straight for the heart. Magnificent storytelling and imagery. THIS is my personal favorite song on the album. Wow. Wow wow wow. (5 stars) ...This is one cd that is only good if you buy the WHOLE ALBUM. There are no individual stand-out tracks; every song is incredible. The majority of the cd is in F key, but Jack knows how to make each one memorable, catchy, and original. FIVE HUGE MASSIVE STARS for one incredible album. No matter what kind of music you like, pick up a copy of this cd. (4.7 stars total, rounded to 5 stars.)

We Drew Our Own Constellations

Jack Johnson's music crept up on me out of nowhere. Without any airplay or video spins, it seemed like every one of my friends all of the sudden became infatuated with him a few years ago. I, too, caught the bug with his laid back approach to music and the best storytelling of this generation. Eventually his albums Brushfire Fairytales and On and On were on heavy rotation on my CD player. It is a good chance that his latest album, In Between Dreams will join the other two. With the first listen to In Between Dreams, it doesn't deviate from the style of it predecessors. The songs are sparse, with the Jack on the guitar and unassuming bass and percussion on most tracks with the occasional piano and accordion. And like his previous work, when you close your eyes, you can envision yourself on the beach with your buddies around a bonfire, sipping on some mai-tai's. Lyrically, Johnson strives at just lounging around, enjoying life. In the album opener, Better Together, he sings, "Oh the places we got to be we'll sit beneath the mango tree." He even tries other to join him in his lounging on Banana Pancakes, "Pretend like it's the weekend and we can pretend it all the time. Can't you see that it's raining, there ain't no need to go outside." The best of these songs is Breakdown where Johnson, with nothing better to do, hopes his train breaks down so he can just walk around and enjoy the scenery. I was slightly disappointed when I first heard the song on the album because I originally heard a remixed version by the Handsome Boy Modeling School that I really enjoy. Eventually, I did grow to like this acoustic version of the song. Johnson has more on his mind than just hanging out with nothing to do. On Good People he ponders "Where'd all the people go?" With the line, "How many train wrecks do we need to see?" seems like knock at all the Osbornes type reality shows, or all reality shows in general for that matter. While the 24-hour news channels seem to be the genesis for the lines, "Bad news misused, got too much to lose. Give me some truth now, who's side are you on?" The war on Iraq seems to be on his mind on Crying Shame, with lines like "A number of people are numbers that ain't coming home," but mankind, itself seems to be the central topic of the song, "By now we should be able to communicate instead of coming to blows." As with his pervious albums, Johnson adds some short interludes in between the song, most notably Belle, a song sung mostly in French. Although three years of French and I could only translate one line, "Je ne comprends pas francais (I don't understand French)." I only remember that because that's a line I was constantly saying in the class, because, in fact, I didn't understand anything that came out of the teacher's mouth. The album comes to a great conclusion with the mellow Constelllations, a song about laying on you back, on a clear night, sand staring at the stars, just the way you should listen to this album.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Before Jack Johnson became the 21st century kingpin of beachside pop/rock, he was a champion surfer on the professional circuit. The sport was second nature to the Hawaiian native, who began chasing waves as a toddler and, by the age of 17, had become an outstanding athlete on the Banzai Pipeline. However, Johnson was also testing other creative outlets — specifically film and music — and a serious surfing accident during his first professional competition convinced him to devote more...
