Reviews:

''Sleep Through the Static'' is the fourth studio album by singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, released in the U.S. on February 5, 2008. The effort was announced on Johnson's personal website as renovation began for the release of the album. It was recorded at L.A.'s Solar Powered Plastic Plant, which makes it Johnson's first album not made in Hawaii. It was produced by JP Plunier.

The album was played live for the first time at the BBC in December for a select number of fans. Despite having been reviewed mostly unenthusiastically by professional music critics, worldwide sales of the album indicate that most Jack Johnson fans have not been disappointed, with positive word-of-mouth countering the unenthusiastic reviews of some critics.

The first single, "If I Had Eyes", was released via Johnson's MySpace page on December 17, 2007.

The second single from the album was "Hope" and was released on September, peaking at number #30 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks.

The album debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 375,000 copies in its first week, including 139,000 digital downloads. This was a record high for weekly digital album sales. It also debuted at number one on the Worldwide chart with sales of 577,000. It held the record at iTunes for most digital downloads in a single day, until Coldplay's ''Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends'' set a new record.

''Sleep Through the Static'' remained at number one on the Billboard 200 in its second week of release, by which time it had sold over 180,000 copies, as well as its third week, in which it sold 105,000 copies. It fell from the number one spot in its fourth week, in which it placed third with about 92,000 copies sold. The album was made #45 in ''Qs 50 Best Albums of the Year 2008. - Wikipedia
