Product Description


Fans of Willy Porter, Ben Harper, and G. Love will all want to check out Jack Johnson's engaging folk- and blues-inflected pop. Born in Oahu, Hawaii, Johnson, a former surfer and film-school graduate, has a knack for acoustic ballads whose calm surfaces hide a subtle but strong lyrical undertow. "It seems to me that 'maybe' pretty much always means 'no,'" sings Johnson on "Flake," which features crony Harper on slide guitar. Production by J.P. Plunier (who also handles Harper's recordings) is simple and uncluttered: acoustic guitar and drum tracks share the foreground with Johnson's easygoing vocals, which evoke everyone from G. Love (who recorded Johnson's "Rodeo Clowns" on his Philadelphonic album) to Nick Drake to Willy Porter. And while Johnson may not have Porter's guitar chops, these songs have a relaxed beauty and understated depth that reward repeated listening. --Bill Forman

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh yet Hip June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first received Jack Johnson's debut album as a gift-I admit I didn't listen to it in the first month I got it. From looking at the cover, it looked like Jack Johnson was just another boy band pop singer. How wrong I really was!
After finally listening to the CD, I was amazed. His song's were so calm, yet so full of pleasure. I listened to it for hours at a time. Johnson's got a fresh new voice, unlike any other. He manages to stay hip with "bouncy" tones, and really catches your attention. I had no less than five people ask me who was singing, because he appeals to all ages.
I would recommend Brushfire Fairytales to anyone ready to step out of the mainstream pop culture. He could certainly define the new "in" style very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars underneath the stars June 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Jack Johnson is everything Jon Mayer wishes he could be. No offense to any of the John Mayer fans out there because most Mayer fans are also Jack fans, but Mayers' music does not remind you of being out on the beach, staring into the stars. This album really does make you want to live out on the beach, and it is alot more upbeat than the albums that come after.
I'll admit that the first time I heard Brushfire Fairytales, I wasn't too pleased with it because at the time it came out his kind of music was not the music my life at the time was calling out for, if that makes sense, but yeah, so I missed out on Brushfire Fairytales, forgive me please. It's been a year since the first time I've heard the album and I think its safe to say that I am in love with this album and his other albums. Every song is great, and the standout tracks for me include Mudfootball, where he claims "We used to laugh alot, but only because we thought that everything good would always remain, nothings gonna change there's no need to complain." Drink the Water is another favorite of mines in which I think he is singing about the hardships he faced when he surfed professionally. The first track off the album basically glues your ears to your cd player, it really is that good. Inaudible Melodies is probably my favorite track of all time by him because one, it sets the mood for the whole cd, and two its just catchy and the lyrics are great and the drums and bass can't be forgotten.
This album reminds me of all the good times and the bad times of summers gone and summers still to come. It would be a great duty for you all that have not yet experienced Jack Johnson to buy this album first and work your way up from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best artist and CD ever May 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is really great for anyone who likes calm relaxing melodies. Dont misinterpert that, it is very catchy and it's just a great Cd. He's a sufer so he has nice melodies about the ocean and they are catchy. He has a great voice which is why most people like him, and he is a good gutair player. I highly recommed this CD and i think you will really enjoy this CD if you get. I usually find these reviews helpful so i hope mine was.

5.0 out of 5 stars So chilled out. I wanna be on vacation forever. May 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Can you dig it? I ran into this music by sheer chance. Lucky me! This stuff is great. Intelligent, laid back, vibrant, and breezy. I wonder if this is what the Red Hot Chili Peppers would sound like had they not experimented with drugs, and took a long vacation to the Carribean of Hawaii, perhaps. This is the kind of stuff barbeques and beach parties were made for. A great bunch of songs here that can help even this overworked underpaid NYC native chill out. For real. This is better than therapy. Iced Corona, flip flops, hot dogs, optional. Brushfire, a must.
By the way, I think he's performing at Central Park Summerstage this Summer.
(For the person who said Jack Johnson sounds like how Jimi Hendrix would sing, for your information, the voice on Jimi Hendrix records IS Jimi Hendrix. I understand the confusion, because when I first heard Jimi Hendrix I thought Jimi was the guitar player and Hendrix was the lead singer. Little did I know it was the same person. By the way, I got a nice piece of the Brooklyn Bridge to sell you. Ha!)
