Simple Plan :: Simple Plan

Montreal pop-punk rockers Simple Plan have tried to reinvent themselves on their third album by enlisting the help of producers like Max Martin and Danja Hills. They play with some new sounds but everything comes right back to stuff we've heard before from bands like Good Charlotte and Blink 182. The pop half of pop-punk has really taken over on this disc and the overproduced tracks seem to be missing the most important ingredient of all: heart. Apparently, the plan this time around seems to be 'sell records', and they probably will, but with so many great bands pushing the envelope, why settle for something so simple?

Fun Facts

  • The album features two limited edition bonus tracks.
  • Pierre Bouvier wrote Save You about his brother's battle with cancer.
  • Producer Max Martin has worked with *NSYNC, The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson.

Jack Johnson :: Sleep Through the Static

Hawaiian born singer-songwriter Jack Johnson has built a legion of fans who love the super-chill vibe of his tunes. On his fourth record, Sleep Through the Static, he doesn't venture very far from what has made him famous. That is, acoustic folk mixed with funky island beats and a hip-hop bass line. This particular recipe works one more time because Johnson's albums are perfect when you're in that particularly relaxed, thoughtful mood. He's not reinventing music and probably won't attract many new fans, but then again, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Fun Facts

  • The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 374, 619 copies in it's first week.
  • Sleep Through the Static was recorded at LA's solar powered plastic plant, making it the first Johnson hasn't recorded in Hawaii.
