DO THEY SOUND THE SAME???? NO!I too am a proud Jack fan, like all of you. Jack Johnson takes time and pride in his music, and I just don't see where people come up with the notion that all these tracks sound the same. Makes me wonder if they have there head wrapped in a grocery bag. As for the CD, I will say I don't care for Staple It Together as much as the other songs. It doesn't have the same soothing Jack Johnson beat that I like. If anyone else produced that song, I'd like it, but for Jack, NO. That song doesn't make the Album any less than a 5 star rating though. GREAT album.Submitted by coalitis_bwink (West Lafayette, IN)Was This Review Helpful? Yes No
