Jack Johnson - Brushfire Fairytales

Keeping with the spirit of spanning genres, here's another mood type guy in Jack Johnson. Now, the challenge can sometimes come when I'm not in that certain mood for music but try to review it anyway - and today is that type of day. I really enjoy Mr. Johnson's work, but not really in that mode this morning. Anyhow...this is a pretty solid record. It's got two of my favorite Jack tracks, and this album seems less poppy then others. I've always liked his laid back approach to music, and that he never really puts anything out there that makes you scratch your head and wonder what he was thinking. As far as this genre goes, Johnson and John Mayer are probably the kings of record sales and probably one of few people you've even heard of when it comes to this stuff. I guess Coldplay fits here too...but they span into that pop category as well - especially current music. Regardless, check out Fairytales and I think you'll be surprised. If you're a Jack fan, you may already know a couple tracks here, but if you've never heard his stuff - keep an open mind and play it through. You'll at least find one or two that get you going.
