专辑名:On and On
歌手:Jack Johnson
发行时间:2003-05-06

简介:2003年5月,Johnson推出第二张《On and On》,由制作过Beastie Boys专辑的Mario Caldato Jr.担纲,其它乐手则依旧是《Brushfire Fairytales》的原班人马:Johnson唱歌/吉他、Adam Topol鼓手、Merlo Podlewski贝斯。《On and On》融合了触动心弦的欢心情歌、以及严肃的议题:资本主义、工业化、校园枪击事件、海洋原油钻探、还有战争。Johnson在第一张创作中即已显著的社会论述与内在真实,在《On and On》中更加成熟。   《On and On》则是由Johnson自己新创的厂牌Brushfire Records所发行,在一年内就突破100万销量。同年Johnson的多年好友G. Love与Donavon Frankreiter也加入了该厂牌,后者也是位职业冲浪者/音乐人;Brushfire还发行了Johnson两部冲浪电影的原声带。 It took Jack Johnson two years to break mainstream with his debut album, Brushfire Fairytales, and by the time it went platinum in early 2003, his star power was unstoppable. Twentysomethings and college kids across the globe often compared Johnson's comfortable approach to the fiery Ben Harper, so when it came time to make a second album, Johnson basically picked up where the first album left off. On and On is a sparkling sophomore effort, carefully designed to avoid any kind of critical slump. Fans will enjoy Johnson's soothing ballads and boy-next-door charms, never looking beyond the surface of the songs themselves. Producer Mario Caldato, Jr. (Beastie Boys, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion) hones Johnson's feel-good vibe, polishing his signature acoustic guitars to wave along to On and On's genre-blending sound. Johnson gets serious this time, too. He playfully expounds on America's sickening dependence on material things ("Gone") and its subconscious ill will with today's youth ("Cookie Jar"). Other views on world war ("Traffic in the Sky") and a capitalistic, business-obsessed way of life ("The Horizon Has Been Defeated") are gently reflected upon without reproach. Johnson doesn't need to be an aggressive messenger to get his point across; the monumental sales of Brushfire Fairytales make that quite clear. People are listening to Johnson's musical commentary because he's on their level. He's not a philosophical preacher like his counterpart, Harper. On and On keeps things simple in sound and time. The only noticeable change is that Johnson didn't lyrically restrain himself. There are 17 solid tracks featured on On and On, each one is a spiritual groove rooted in funk and blues. In dire times, Johnson is sunny and sunny always feels good.
