Product Description

The Brokedown Melody soundtrack includes 2 new tracks from Johnson as well as an alternate version of the track ''Breakdown''. The original version of this track was included on his multi-platinum release In Between Dreams and was written while traveling to Chile to surf with his childhood hero Gerry Lopez for the film. In addition to the unreleased material from Jack Johnson, an eclectic lineup of musicians was enlisted to provide a narrative for the visual journey that takes the viewer from Jamaica, to the outer Islands of Indonesia, to deep Mexico and all the way down to the bottom of Chile. Highlights include an unreleased song by Eddie Vedder, new music from Matt Costa and tracks from Kings of Convenience, The Beta Band, M. Ward, Doug Martsch and many others.

Jack's Consistent March 8 2007
By D. Reese - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is another good and well-balanced album from Jack Johnson and crew at Brushfire Records. Everything that Jack personally touches here is gold, but there are some other 'good' (not 'gold') accompaniments. Matt Costa is showing himself to be very consistent as well, offering a well written and melodic piece much like he did on the Curious George album. The one draw back on this album that gave me pause and why I would only give it a 4 star rating is the injections of spoken monologs that are included from the start of the album all the way on through. I am a surfer and I still find them annoying...

EEEEaaaassssyyyy Jan. 9 2007

Another cool, chill, laid back feel that one would expect from anything with Jack Johnson's name on it.

For some reason the Vedder song just blows me away in how great a song it is and how simple a song it is.
Mellow and good... Nov. 20 2006

Here we have yet another surf film soundtrack from Jack Johnson and friends (in the same vein as "Thicker Than Water" and "The September Sessions"). By now most people are familiar with Johnson's nuvo-Buffett style of churning out short, chilled-out, acoustic beach grooves. Whether you're a fan of his style or not, this album will do little to change your mind. It's packed with the same type of jazzy dubs and folky jingles that have made Johnson a favorite of beach barbequers in need of some background music for the past few years.

Most notable on this particular soundtrack are the "film version" of "Breakdown" (which sounds more-or-less the same as it does on Johnson's "In Between Dreams" album, perhaps with a slightly faster, upbeat tempo), and Eddie Vedder backed by a ukulele on "Goodbye."

Of all his friends and musical colleagues, Johnson remains the most consistent in terms of creating superior melodies. But the musical diversity of this album keeps it just alive enough to feel somehow fresh and enjoyable, despite the fact that these soundtracks to Johnson's surf films are all beginning to sound a little too similar.
LOVE this album! Feb. 10 2013

All the singers and songs take me away from the desert and to the beach! I've been listening to this album for about 4 years and had to buy another one when my first one was scratched to death. I still can't get enough of it and LOVE track #4! Great mix and awesome vibes!

~Now go Buy!

I really am enjoying this CD, can't take it out of my player. I would recommend this to anyone who is into Jack Johnson, surfing, or just wants to hear some music that they haven't heard before.
