AllMusic Review by

Plenty of guys would like to be either a professional surfer or a top-selling pop star, but Jack Johnson has managed to juggle a career doing both, earning trophies for riding waves while writing and performing songs that have earned him an international following. iTunes Originals is a release Johnson created for the iTunes digital music store, which combines several of his favorite songs, exclusive acoustic recordings of four tunes ("Traffic in the Sky," "Cookie Jar," "The News/Natural Mystic," and a cover of Jimmy Buffet's "A Pirate Looks at Forty"), and interview segments in which he talks about his rise to fame, his creative process, and the experiences that have helped formed his songs.
