Album Review: Jack Johnson: From Here to Now to You

Artist: Jack Johnson
Album: From Here to Now to You
Point of Purchase: iTunes 
Price: $11.99

Thoughts: I almost bought the album earlier in the week at Target ($13.99 with two bonus tracks) but ended up putting it back because it wasn't on the shopping list (along with a lot of other impulse decisions that I decided against). The next day I found it on Spotify and listened to it... twice back to back. It's that good. It's probably one of my favorite JJ albums to date, and I love them all. 

Tracks:

I Got You: "Back when all my little goals seemed so important, Every pot of gold fill and full of distortion, Heaven was a place still in space not in motion"
Washing Dishes: "I want you to wonder what's my name, Because I need you to want me the same"
Shot Reverse Shot: "You're the rock and I'm the paper, You're the scissors I'm the rock"
Never Fade: "I tried to play it cool and attached no strings, But by the end of the day, I needed the whole thing"
Tape Deck: "We're just specks of love, directionless"
Don't Believe a Thing I Say: "Are we free or afraid, Of what we're told, Are we out of or under, Control"
As I Was Saying: "I've been erasing, Rewrote the second half like this, So my protagonist, Might find his way back home"
You Remind Me of You: "Your daddy gave you daydreams, And more cushion in your seat"
Radiate: "As you walk you believe, Every part of the dream"
Ones and Zeros: "In the future we'll be laughing at who we were right now"
Change: "Turning page after page after page, It gets stranger day by day"
Home: "this old trail will lead me right back to where it begins"
