Jack Johnson - In Between Dreams (2005)

Find the most stressed-out person you know, play this album for him or her, and then watch as he or she descends helplessly into the most tranquil of moods. The "calm" factor is definitely evident here with tracks like "Banana Pancakes" and "Never Know." Opening the album is "Better Together," a track that's soothing and lyrical. It features Johnson's gentle voice inviting the listener to close his or her eyes, settle back with his or her feet in the warm sand, and then just chill. Summer's all about the mellow tunes, and this album's full of them. - Erin Geiger
