    a nice effort from Johnson, though not his best and not really a great album... as with most of his music, it is much much improved when played live. Still, the music is enjoyable and calming as always.

  1. Sleep Through the Static marks a tentative step forward for this improbable superstar.
  2. Sleep Through the Static has one gear, and that's the one marked "Actually, can we do it tomorrow?"
  3. On Sleep Through the Static, Johnson has returned to his five basic modes of shuffling and stargazing, all of which are plenty easy on the ears but somehow flabbier.
