Jack Johnson is a retired competitive surfer living with his college sweetheart in Hawaii, but dude wants you to know he still stresses. "I don't care for your paranoid us-against-them walls," he purrs over gentle calypso-rocksteady grooves on "My Mind Is for Sale"; "Fragments" is a wistful ballad for our befouled oceans (see his documentary The Smog of the Sea). On an LP of quiet activism and love songs, Johnson reboots the Zen-master delivery and swaying-palm-tree melodic sense that made his Curious George soundtrack LP a Number One hit.
Jack Johnson is about as guilty as pleasures can get once you reach a certain stage in life - you know, that point where you basically don.
