The Journal of Captain Rockhopper is the second studio album by Antarctican pirate Rockhopper. It is his follow-up to the commercially-successful debut album Rockhopper's Ballads (2011), released on December 4, 2012 by Club Penguin Music Records. Based mainly on Rockhopper's journal entries of his experiences at sea, the album incorporates the typical pirate themes and concepts as Rockhopper dwells into his past with personal lyrics as well as a few upbeat hits. As well as that the album includes a lot of spoken-word lyrics and stage-type dialogue. The album was recorded during the year between January and October and features production from Rockhopper and his puffle Yarr - both serving as executive producers - Junglefood, Il Grinta, SKT and Destroy and DK Codswallop. Unlike his debut album, The Journal of Captain Rockhopper contains far less guest appearances, featuring only Antarctican singer Delaine and country-pop band Penguin Band.
The album was preceded by the Captain's Quarters EP, released earlier on in the year in April.
Four singles were released from the album that were all fairly commercially successful. Upon release, The Journal of Captain Rockhopper sold 349,521 copies in its first week of release in the USA, debuting at number 1 across multiple countries as well. It is Rockhopper's second consecutive album to feature his name in the title.
Rockhopper aimed to follow the success of Rockhopper's Ballads (2011) with a different approach. Upon re-reading his journal again, Rockhopper gained the inspiration to write a concept album following his adventures at sea.
The cover of the album is the front cover of Rockhopper's journal of the same name along with faded images of Rockhopper that he took during his adventures.
