Product Description

Amazon.ca

Jack Johnson has found himself a groove. Indeed, he Hawaiian surfing champion turned alternative pop-folk star really hasn't changed things one iota for his sophomore release. Fans of Brushfire Fairytales should be delighted with the results. The groove is a mellow one--most of the 16 tracks here are semi-acoustic--and that easy-going spirit filters into Johnson's lyrical philosophies. "What will be will be / And so it goes" he sings on "Times Like These," the opening track. Thankfully, Johnson is never too mellow, and there's a "Don't worry, be happy" vibe to most of his music. "The Horizon Has Been Defeated" even has a pseudo-reggae feel to it. Although classified as an alternative musician, the singer-songwriter's compositions owe much to past hits. "Traffic in the Sky" is remeniscent of Jim Croce's "Operator" and Looking Glass's one-hit-wonder, "Brandy." On the splendid "Taylor," Johnson sounds an awful lot like Donovan. And "By The Way" recalls the Lovin' Spoonful. -- Bill Holdship

4.0 out of 5 stars Following up a masterpiece (3.75 stars) Aug. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
On And On is a trouble-free album. Unlike Brushfire Fairytales, you can put it on and just let it play through without ever losing a beat. Jack's debut allowed you to skip around to your favorites, while, again, this one is rather straightforward and easygoing. So if you are looking for another "Flake" or even a "Bubble Toes", you won't find it here. But what you will find is 16 respectable tunes that, in all, appear to take Jack's musical talents, both lyrically and musically, to a new level. I have read numerous reviews for On And On. Some seem to prefer this release, while many others see it as a small step down from Brushfire. Well... I think this is certainly a step down from the days of "Inaudible Melodies", but it's certainly a worthwhile album.
1. Times Like These - 5/5 - modest opener, boasting the title track over and over. A bit short, but still awesome.
2. The Horizon Has Been Defeated - 3/5 - saw this live on Lettermen, wasn't too impressed. It doesn't match up to "Flake" (sorry).
3. Traffic In The Sky - 3.5/5 - decent, with a chorus that makes up for (seemingly) simplistic music.
4. Taylor - 5/5 - this one seems to be many people's favorite. I can't argue that. The fact it's a little longer than previous tracks makes it stand out. Plainly brilliant.
5. Gone - 5/5 - shortness aside, you have to love the lyrics here: 'gone be the birds when they don't wanna sing'.
6. Cupid - 2/5 - way too short. Come on now.
7. Wasting Time - 3/5 - very good lyrics aren't represented too well by a beat similar to "The Horizon Has Been Defeated".
8. Holes To Heaven - 3.5/5 - a bit reminiscent if BF's latter tunes; manages to distinguish itself rather nonchalantly. Cool.
9. Dreams Be Dreams - 3/5 - too similar to "Wasting Time".

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not as good as Brushfire Fairytales May 6 2003
By brent
Format:Audio CD
After Brushfire Fairytales, Jack Johnson has rapidly integrated himself into a list of my favorite artists, which include Dave Matthews and other such performers. I had been counting down the days until this Cd came out and I bought it the morning it came out. The CD is great. It is more mellow than his first release. The music is great. Jack is great ont he guitar and some of the beats the three performers create are fantastic. The only place that it falls short in is the song-writing. The lyrics aren't as great as they were on his first album. Several songs, such as "Cookie Jar" stand out for lyrical meaning, but songs like "The Horizon had been Defeated," while fun to listen to, lack mosr dpeth in the lyrics and it reaches a state of funkiness with lyrics like "thingamajigsaw puzzle." This isn't a bad thing though. Th album is very enjoyable to listen to and I would reccomend it to anyone who wants a good CD to chill to. Some standout songs include "Taylor," "Wasting Time," "Rodeo Clowns" and "Mediocre Bad Guys." In all, this CD is much more mellow than "Brushfire fairytales" and the music is much more intoxicating, but the lyrics don't pack as much of a punch as they did on "Brushfire Fairytales." It is still a great album by an artist who is sure to evolve into a favorite among many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD July 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Jack Johnson's On And On is a great CD to just chill and listen to. Has great guitar and vocals throughout the whole CD, not just a few good songs like most. My favorites are Gone, Taylor, Holes To Heaven, and Wasting Time. Also, most of the lyrics on his songs hit deep and actually mean something. I would recommend this album to anyone who likes Ben Harper, John Mayer, or OAR. They all have that mellow and laid back vibe.
1. Times Like These-great song, i love the verses in the song, not a great chourus
2.Horizon Has Been Defeated-great sound, not great lyrics but good to listen to
3.Traffic in the Sky-one of my favorite songs on the album, I believe that many people who wanna mellow out will enjoy this.
4.Taylor-great guitar, decent lyrics, one of my faves and shows a good message if you pick up the subtext
5.Gone-in my opinion the best song on the CD, great lyrics and decent music
6.Cupid-good song not my fav but still good
7.Wasting Time-decent sound but GREAT lyrics i love how he points out "Everybody else"
8.Holes to Heaven-good guitar, good lyrics, good vocals, good bass, and good percussion, all around good song
9.Dreams Be Dreams-like this song because I think Jack shows your part of himself and what he is feeling
10.Tomorrow Morning-starts kinda slow but still a good mellow out song
11.Fall Line-again not one of my faves but still easy to listen too
12.Cookie Jar-nice'n slow
13.Rodeo Clowns-a little more upbeat kinda reminds me more of ben harper with a little less bongo
14.Cocoon-very slow and a nice chorus
15.Mediocre Bad Guys-doesnt sound like typical Jack Johnson but I love the chourus
16.Symbol in my Driveway-good way to end a CD and I think its a nice song
Anyone I have ever entroduced this CD to has loved it. No matter the age, sex, race, or anything everyone from my dad to some of my friends we all love it and I would reccomend it to ANYONE
