Product Description

Jack Johnson is the voice of Curious George (through his music). The songs are prominently featured within the film and are an integral part of the story. Soundtrack features 9 new Jack songs, including 3 duets with Ben Harper, G. Love and Matt Costa. Also includes a cover of The White Stripes 'We Are Going To Be Friends' which Jack has performed live on tour over the past few years. Universal. 2006.

Admit it: If you had to pick an artist to give voice to the wackadoo thinkings of a monkey beloved by most of the American populace over age 3, you could do a lot worse than Jack Johnson. Black Eyed Peas? Too hyper. Death Cab for Cutie? Too ironic. They Might Be Giants? Too eggheaded. Johnson, though the object of much rightful jealousy--here, after all, is a guy who only stumbled into music and vaulted himself up the charts after a successful career as a pro surfer--turns out to have the goods to do H.A. Rey, Curious George's creator, proud. Fans familiar with Johnson's earlier discs will recognize a certain laconic sprawl and easy fascination in his songs that suits the theme of perpetual puzzlement perfectly (here, let's not forget, is a guy who racked up fans with songs called "Bubble Toes" and "Banana Pancakes"). That the music takes a childish turn barely registers--songs like opener "Upside Down" are classic Johnson, all wonderment and groove, and the collaborations with friends Ben Harper, G. Love, and Matt Costa warm up, wink, and scamper off before packing on the weight of excess meaning. "We're Going to Be Friends," track seven, seals the deal--when you can make the White Stripes sound compatible with the Man with the Yellow Hat, you know you've got a multi-generational winner. --Tammy La Gorce

Maybe it's just the fact that springtime is starting to make itself present up here in northern Canada, but there is something about the soundtrack of "Curious George" that seems to bring sunshine and warmth to my days, a little bit more with each new listening.
This album is a warm, lovely and soothing collection of acoustic-based songs. The lyrics are simple (but not simplistic), the melodies are catchy and memorable, and the arrangements are beautifully understated, leaving plenty of room for Johnson's relaxed and earthy voice. Jack Johnson stays pretty true to the many qualities that have turned him into some sort of a cult figure in recent years, and was the perfect choice to score one of the best kids movies made in recent years.
What I love the most about this soundtrack is that unlike more typical soundtracks to kids' movies (think of most of the post-Beauty and the Beast Disney soundtracks), it avoids the bombastic, Broadway-musical approach. Forget the ultra-wordy, falsely dramatic, sacharine-loaded production tricks that litter too many kids movies these days; what you get here is songs that your kids will enjoy, and that you (as an adult) will have a great time listening to. There is something uplifting and positive, in a smooth way, about songs such as "Upside down", "Talk of the town" (my personal favourite), "Lullabye", "Broken" and "We're going to be friends".
Either way, don't be turned off by the fact that this music is featured in a children's movie. This album sits beautifully amongst the discography of Jack Johnson, and will serve as a fantastic introduction to his music for many people.

Out of all of Jack Johnson's CD's Curious George is my second favourite (first would be In Between Dreams). This album is very kid-friendly, a great CD to put on in the car for a trip. I would also recommend it for any Jack Johnson fan as well. On the first listen there are a songs that pop out right away like Upside Down, 3 R's, We're Going to be Friends. The rest of the songs may take several listens to grow on you. For me, Broken is a stand-out track among the songs that need time to "grow on you", because of the smooth guitar work.

Again Jack Johnson doesn't disappoint with his catchy melodies, nice guitar riffs, and easy-going songs.

This is a very up beat CD with a variety of tempos and melodies.
My toddler likes listening and dancing to this CD, but you can judge whether the sound is pleasing to the ear for yourself.

This soundtrack is done really well by Jack and his friends. The new singles are upbeat, and the re-working of old songs are quite good too. Jack joins Matt Costa on his "Lullaby' with the ukelele, to create one of the strongest tracks on the CD. Close friend Ben Harper also offers his "With My Own Two Hands" to the album. Overall, very pleasing release from Brushfire Records.
