(Track-by-track) Jack Rocks!!..... Wait, Literally?

I will start by saying that I am a tremendous Jack Johnson fan, so I may have been a bit biased on my expectations when I first pressed play and heard the album..... but wow. Honestly, no matter what Jack would have recorded in that Solar powered studio in Hawaii I would have given it 5 stars, but this album (bias aside) truly earns all of them. Now, I will stop making this sound like a love letter, and go by saying that this is a ROCK album. By saying this it is still mellow (don’t go in expecting Guns N Roses or RHCP), but To the Sea is filled with electric guitars, forward movement, and the catchy melodies and lyrics Jack is known for. My major complaint with STTS was that it felt very studio-ish, and that it didn’t have that warm lovin’ feeling that made people listen to him in the past, including myself. In many ways To the Sea reminds me of In Between Dreams, with an andrenalating and joyous kick. I believe a lot of this is due to the nature of the albums, IBD being about Jack’s personal life (especially his love), while TTS expresses his passion for the ocean. A criticism of Jack I hear all to often is that “all of his songs sound the same.” However, those who believe this, will not have as strong an argument after this album. Saying that, lets look at each track individually:

You and Your Heart (8/10)- You’ve all heard it and loved it. Catchy and a good foreshadowing of what the album has in store.
No Good With Faces (8/10)- A classic lovable JJ song. Very true and heart spoken.
At or With Me (10/10)- A favorite of mine at the moment. Awesome rock feeling and vibe. The “Uhh Ohh Ohh’s” are as fun as those in “Bubbly Toes.” This is one you will be rolling down the car window and singing out loud.
When I Look Up (6/10)- Another Jack “shorty,” like “Situations” or “While We Wait.” I personally like it, but it is difficult to get into due to its short length.
From the Clouds (8/10)- From the beginning, the melody grabs you and doesn’t let go. Makes you want to dance!
Turn Your Love (9/10)- A great song with some moving lyrics on love. Delicate sound with the back-up vocals and simple melody, naturally singable.
The Upsetter (7/10)- If you are looking for a great song to sing-a-long with, this would be one to look in too. Nice and light.
To the Sea (9/10)- An addicting melody that is sure to adhere to your brain, and great electric guitar. A rockin’ song! (good one to check out if your not sure bout the album)
My Little Girl (7/10)- Another great Jack love song. Has a John Mayer-ish feel to it. See if you can catch the “Good People” allusion.
Red Wine, Mistakes, Mythology (9/10)- Funky and fun! If you are fans of Zach Gill and ALO this song sounds greatly influenced by them. One of the strongest on the album, definitely one of the most fun.
Pictures of People Taking Pictures (9/10)- Upbeat and lively, clever and witty. Typical JJ form, this is one people will enjoy.
Anything But the Truth (7/10)- An acoustic, singer/songwriter song. Smooth guitar work by Jack.
Only the Ocean (10/10)- This is what the album is all about! Heart-felt lyrics, relaxing and rolling guitar, and piano that, well... pulls you in. Captures the soothing sounds of the ocean’s tides.

While this album is filled with singles that could stand on their own, only when experienced as a whole can one see how sea-worthy this piece of work truly is. From the beginning you are welcomed in by the sunny “You and Your Heart” and feel at home, and by the time you wash up to “Only the Ocean,” you yourself are sitting on the warm Hawaiian beach. Jack and a couple surfboards by your side, you are watching the sun wane over the seemingly limitless ocean as the tides slowly, pulls you in..... Then you become jealous of the fact that this is probably Jack’s everyday life. “Aloha” is the Hawaiian word for love, and To the Sea has the Aloha Spirit!

Mucho Aloha, and ROCK ON JACK!!

melow me please jack!

Ok, I have been a fan of Jack Johnson's from the start with 'Brushfire Fairytales.' But with this album, he definitely lost his spark. Everysong on it sounds the same, except a few of them which are just ok. Hes doing this rock sound which is drowning out his voice and it just sounds like a loud of instruments and a voice thats in the mixture of it all. Im still a fan but I'm honestly disappointed with this album. Hopefully he goes back to the style in "In Between Dreams."
The songs I do recommend on this album are
-No Good With Faces
-From the Clouds
-Turn Your Love
-My Little Girl (sounds a lot like angel from 'sleep through the static')

seriously?

it's jack johnson. the man knows soulful, meaningful lyrics and just continues his breezy legacy as an acoustic wonder. there's no other jack johnson. to the sea's just another example of why he personifies the phrase "chill". 5 stars for sure.

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...
