Jack Johnson doesn't do anything forcefully. Gentle, mellow vibes have been his stock in trade since his 2011 debut, Brushfire Fairytales, and that doesn't change on Meet the Moonlight, his eighth studio album, delivered some 21 years after his first. That's a long stretch of time to mine the same vein, but the relaxed vibes of Meet the Moonlight are somewhat deceptive; underneath the placid surface, Johnson is taking a few risks. Much of the shift can be attributed to his collaboration with Blake Mills, a guitarist who usually works with such indie rock and Americana acts as Fiona Apple and Alabama Shakes. Mills doesn't bring the noise or explicitly arty attacks to the laid-back environs of Jack Johnson. Rather, Mills coaxes out the atmosphere, allowing "One Step Ahead" to pulsate to a vibrant, colorful, and relaxed beat, and letting "Costume Party" unfurl with an appealingly languid gait. Other parts of Meet the Moonlight also have readily apparent textures -- "3AM Radio" gurgles softly, "Don't Look Now" almost has an urgency to its chorus -- but the Mills approach lets such spare numbers as the closing "Any Wonder" feel full and realized, and not like sketches. These subtle shifts and shadings help make Meet the Moonlight a quietly adventurous album as well as one of Jack Johnson's best.

40 Years of Post-punk in 10 Albums

In the twilight of the ’70s, as the shrapnel of the punk explosion was still settling, the movement was already inspiring new groups. As New Wave unfurled, the post-punk movement represented a tortured, even radical turn. From pioneers Joy Division and The Fall to current bands Shame and Fontaines D.C., here’s a close-up on the landmark albums that electrified the entire music world and continue to fascinate the rock’n’roll underground.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…
