    I'll see you again in 25 years Prestigious

    I'll always have a soft spot for Jack! Just wish this would've come out in the summer!

  3. I was thinking about him earlier this year and was wondering what he'd been up to.

    And yes, should have been released in June or July.

    Just start and subplots is sounding real nice. Never heard any of his albums all the way through so this will be my first.

    Edit: Actually I may have heard In Between Dreams once a while back.

    In Between Dreams is definitely my favorite, but On and On, Brushfire Fairytales and even To The Sea are really solid. Hell, the last one was really good too! He just makes really solid chill music to surf to haha

    Yeah I would figure In Between Dreams is his best. I was liking the singles he was releasing and this turned out pretty good. How would you rank this to his others?

    Tough to say after one listen, it seems the most relaxed and low key, but not in a bad way. I don't think it'll be a favorite of mine but it's still good

    Yeah nothing wrong with that haha. I really like the moments when it breaks into an acoustic outro like in Daybreaks & Is One Moon Enough?

    Very disappointed on first listen. Sounds like he's coasting after a really solid last album. Unfortunately summer's over so I don't see myself giving it many more chances either.

    I enjoyed it, but I don't have much context to his older material. What made it so disappointing compared to his previous work to you?

    His best albums (first three) have a joy of discovery, as he takes songs that he wrote between surf sessions and figures out how to record them with friends. There's a clear trajectory too -- from bare bones acoustic ditties to further instrumental experimentation to a major label budget and the enhanced production that comes with it. On his latest one, he kind of just sounds like he needed to put an album out because it's been a few years.

    Also, the songs are consistently better on earlier projects. He's got some great songs on his later albums (especially Sleep through the Static), but those first three have his best jams.

    Been listening to this one over the last couple of days and really enjoy it. Will have to give From Here To Now To You a listen as well, as I missed that one for some reason - To The Sea was the last one for me.
