“Summer don’t turn to fall.” Not when you’re Jack Johnson. Warm beach music is what he does and this album is no exception. His talents are nowhere near, say, Brian Wilson at his peak, but there are some notable songs here.
Subplots, from which the Light Above It title is lifted, serves as a fitting preface of sorts. It’s also the album’s main delight as far as vocal melodies go. Love Song Number 16, a demolike serenade to his wife, is also nice.
my rating : 3 of 5
