Jack Johnson is the best

Fantastic album AS USUAL. His music makes bad days good.
Not typical Jack
By Burgess Family
I'm a huge Jack Johnson fan, so let me warn you... This is not the typical Jack Johnson sound. There are some off the wall remixes here. I have to admit, I don't enjoy all the tracks on this one. Only buy if you listen to it first.
you can't remix jack johnson. just doesn't work. he's got his own chill vibe, why would you try to put new beats on top of it? weird. listened to the previews, hated them, didn't buy the album.
His version of "LOVE"
By Ohh shoot
this is a great a idea, but it's not perfect. I personally think they should have gone through his other albums and make some of those remixes, instead of simply staying with "Sleep Through the Static". I mean, 7 "remixed" songs and three videos ins't really enough. The version of "Angel" seems like it was hardly edited at all, plus he really didn't need two hardly different versions of "Hope".
But besides my gripes, it's probably worth $8 in the end, with the videos and all. I just added it to my wish list lol!!
P.S. I think the reason he chose to edit this album over the others is because "Static" was probably the least favorite of his fans so he wanted to spruce it up a bit to attract attention to it
Mix It Up
By Super Nice!!
Nice Mixes! Takes what we love as Jack Johnson and adds a new element. Very Cool! Recomended for Jack Johnson fans!
By The Trapp Family
Creative remixes! He just gave his songs a whole new twist. I love it.
Good but could be great
This is a great idea. Ive been saying that he should make a remix album. But i think he should make it with different songs and better beats. Not saying that this is bad, but if he added some bongos and steel drums and stuff it would be a hit. Nice album though
i love jack johnsons music
but i like the original versions of these songs. still good. but not as good
get the original Sleep Through The Static
jack johnson is great, but get the original-it has more songs and is better sounding
That threw me for a loop!
While listening along and enjoying the new spin on these songs, I was totally taken by surprise when coming to the "If I Had Eyes" remix!!! The Cure's "Close To Me" drum track playing along with Jack Johnson's song was pretty crazy! I have followed The Cure for the last 17 years and I never thought there would come a time when synergy would be found between what I "grew up" listening to and what I listen to now as an adult. That is some strange evolution that I am apparently not alone with. Thanks Jack!
