Jack's Mannequin... From fighting for his life to debuting at #8 on the Billboard 200!!!

Jack's Mannequin is still alive and kicking (for real, and thank God for it!), and back with their second album which miraculously debuted on the Billboard top 200 at number 8!
The Glass Passenger is the follow up to the ultra popular 2005 Everything In Transit, and the anticipation for the record after being pushed back for 5 months is fully worth it.
It feels like there is something magical about this album, a special touch brought by Andrew McMahon's new appreciation for life after is triumphant battle with acute lymphatic leukemia. Thankfully he survived, and fans all over the world are greatly appreciative, especially after hearing his latest masterpiece.
There's something Christmas'y in the music, something incredibly joyful and happy, and pure... I can't put my finger on exactly what it is, but between the choir-like background vocals in some tracks to the chiming of bells in others, the album instills a warmth in the listener that only one whose been to their deathbed and back can create.
The beautiful piano rock album is an inspiration to all, as he confronts issues of survival and the fight between life and death, and appreciating being alive.
YOU GOTTA SWIM, SWIM FOR YOUR LIFE. SWIM FOR THE MUSIC THAT SAVES YOU WHEN YOU'RE NOT SO SURE YOU'LL SURVIVE. YOU GOTTA SWIM, SWIM WHEN IT HURTS. THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING, YOU HAVEN'T COME THIS FAR TO FALL OFF THE EARTH. THE CURRENT WILL PULL YOU AWAY FROM YOUR LOVE, JUST KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOVE.
After hearing The Glass Passenger I believe everybody will be thankful that McMahon didn't give up and will take a piece of his strength with them. I would have been devastated if this album did not have a chance to be written.
