Call it the signature of a surfer so bleached by the sun that he rushes nothing, but To the Sea substitutes the sunset strum-alongs of his earliest records for a sleek daytime sheen that might glimmer too brightly for hippies but it makes for a better overall pop record.
"You And Your Heart" tries to kick out the jams, but in the most polite fashion imaginable. He's at his best on more familiar ground of the mid-tempo chug "Red Wine, Mistakes, Mythology." [Aug 2010, p.84]

JayPJun 1, 2010That soft Hawaiian acoustic rock that Jack is famous for? Well... it's back.
JessicaM.Jun 2, 2010Absolutely a melodic trip worth taking, To the Sea brings out the beauty of Jack that fans love to indulge in! The feel is a bit more upbeat, with some electric guitar! Who would've thought they had electric on Jack's little island of paradise! Awesome! Love it! Love it! Love it!… Expand
NickFJun 3, 2010Great album. JJ returns to his roots in a good way. Reminds me of his first album more so than his last one.
DanMJun 2, 2010Love this one as much as all the others! I can't think of a JJ song that i skip over, I listen to them all thanks Jack for some more music.
