Like the son of a surfer he is, Jack Johnson never makes any of his music sound hard, yet All the Light Above It Too, his seventh studio set, almost seems like it will drift away on the slightest breeze. Blame its lightness on Johnson's determination to make this album a series of ten barely dressed demos -- or "sketches," as he calls them. Sometimes, this sparseness accentuates Johnson's knack for tunes that sound like charming singalong ditties -- "Sunsets for Somebody Else" has more than a modicum of charm -- and this deliberate skeletal crew also means that when a song gets a fuller arrangement, it grabs your attention. In particular "Big Sur," with its effervescent worldbeat rhythms, brings to mind Paul Simon and Vampire Weekend, a nice accent to Johnson's cool Pacific breezes. If the simple production -- so direct, it sometimes barely feels there, although its crisp, clean lines offer a reminder that this is indeed a professional affair made for a major label -- winds up spinning every one of Johnson's songs so they seem like a miniature; it also captures his appeal. Johnson never seems to be bothered by much, he always seems to be in good spirits and, at times, his laid-back vibes are infectious, which they certainly are here because he never, ever seems to be trying too hard. He's a back porch strummer and fireside singer, playing for comfort, and that's precisely what All the Light Above It Too provides.

Neil Young in 10 Albums

It’s hard to shout “Rock’n’roll will never die!” without sounding like an idiot. But Neil Young can pull it off. Easily. For over half a century, the Canadian legend has proved himself to be one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, constantly renewing himself and taking rock’n’roll down both rustic and rougher paths. The proof lies in these ten albums.

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.

The Beatles in 12 Albums

Barely seven years spent in the studio. An immeasurable heritage that still has a very strong influence today. The Beatles are a unique case in the history of popular music. The sixties music scene was an era of huge transition. With the Fab Four- helped by Bob Dylan on the other side of the Atlantic- rock music left its carefree adolescence and began adulthood. The four bubbly, naive boys from Liverpool would be transformed into independent artists, a life we follow through their discography.
