iTunes Review

For many, Jack Johnson’s musical world is a calming place, defined by the singer/songwriter’s whimsical insights and gently-syncopated guitar. But shadows invade even paradise, as Sleep Through the Static (2008) reveals. On the surface, Johnson sticks with the same easy-going ambiance that he’s maintained since Brushfire Fairytales — while electric guitars and keyboards play a bigger role this time, his familiar acoustic-centered sound predominates. Jack’s enduring (and endearing) fascination with small domestic details and ordinary moments are present as well. What’s new is a less-sunny lyric perspective, expressed in songs like the title track (an insomniac’s take on Iraq, among other things) and “They Do, They Don’t” (an ominous vision of social breakdown). Fatherhood has also matured his outlook and tunes like “Angel” convey the sweet ache of a lullaby. While the music here couldn’t be called aggressive, there’s an upturn in energy evident in “If I Had Eyes,” “Monsoon” and “What You Thought You Needed.” A bluesy mood colors the smoldering “Losing Keys,” while “Adrift” casually ambles into country terrain. Johnson hasn’t left his dreamy comfort zone behind on Sleep Through the Static, but he’s not rolling over and ignoring the bumps in the night, either.

Customer Reviews

Another Good Album, just not as good

I'm a big Jack Johnson fan, but I must say that I'm a little disappointed with this album. Don't get me wrong it's still got the same ol' easy going Jack Johnson feel, but the songs aren't quite as catchy and after a while they start to sound the same. All in all another good effort. I'm sure this will provide some nice easy listening for time to come, just not as many singles.


This album is probably the most beautiful piece of music to ever touch my ears. Jack is always there for you to catch your tears or to put down a few, whatever you need at a given moment. He lives the good life and fights the good fight, and makes you want to do the same. Listen up.

He's Done It Again

Another great album from an artist that hits the right notes everytime. His electric grooves replace his usual acoustic mellow feel for better sounding conservative melodies His single If I Had Eyes has a old rock feel, while my personal favorite Sleep Through The Static is a mellow jam thats great for a relaxing journey into a mental repose. Other jams Hope and They Do, They Don't have a reggae feel perfect for jamming in the car or on the beach. The opening track All At Once, Angel, Enemy, Same Girl, What You Thought You Need, Monsoon, Losing Keys and the addictive "Go On" follow the usual Jack Johnson sound that captured the world. If your looking for another Jack outing you won't be disappointed. THANX JACK!

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...
