Synopsis

Product Description
"The New Nostalgia" picks up where Christopher Jak's critically acclaimed debut, "Applause of the Rain," left off. With heart-of-the-matter lyrics and sweet melodies to match, this collection of songs offers pop, rock and lush ballads. Christopher's voice possesses the smoothness of today's pop artist while echoing the unpolished emotion of folk, country and bluesgrass vocal icons.

CD Reviews

Rock solid album

"I found Chris' album via surfing right here on Amazon and discovered an awesome find! You can visit his site for music samples. I like his voice a lot -- there's a little bit of gravel to it that makes it unique. All the songs on the album are really strong. Most of them have an upbeat sound that puts me in happy mood. A few of the slower ones remind me sleeping in on a rainy afternoon.

Yes, of course there will be comparisons to other singer songwriters like John Mayer. And yes, if you are a John Mayer fan, you'd probably enjoy Chris. That said, I think they are pretty different. Aside from the voices being different, I think Chris writes really "round" songs (I mean some of them contain piano, string instruments and have a holistic band sound) that's a different sound than Mayer. I enjoyed this album a lot and keep find something new as I keep listening. I think you'll enjoy it too."
One of the best. seriously.

"this guy is the real deal...a total triple-threat.
1) he's a talented songwriter. his lyrics are powerfully visual without relying on typical pop cliche or nausea-inducing sentimentality. his guitar work is fun, and the music is really pretty amazing.
2) the guy's got one of the more versatile tenor voices out there. kinda reedy, kinda sexy. a little duncan skeik, a little ari hest.
3) christopher jak has a rockin' face

this guy is gonna be huge. the disc is just awesome. catch an amazing talent and buy this album, it is seriously one of the best discs of the last five years. and if he's playing near you, check him out...he's incredible live."

"Wow. I have both of Jak's CDs. Each is awesome. Extremely well done - lyrics, music, tone...wow. I can't wait until a third album. I can't get enough. He's my new favorite singer-songwriter. You WILL NOT be disappointed with this purchase."
