My Own Two Hands
Label: Brushfire Records/Universal
Wow. This really is a stunner of a kids' album. Johnson's voice as is comfortable as a pair of lived-in jeans, and he never dumbs down these songs to make them more kid-friendly, relying instead on his innate good nature to put a winning face on songs like "Wrong Turn" and "Talk of the Town." He even does justice to the White Stripes' "We're Going to Be Friends."
