Buffett doesn't disappoint

on 6/3/1999

Any true Buffett fan will enjoy this solid collection. Jimmy didn't stick to only one musical style this time around - there's a little of everything here...

Over the years, Jimmy Buffett has earned a fanatical legion of admirers on a par with the Grateful Dead's army of Deadheads. Like the Deadheads, Buffett's "Parrotheads" see something in Buffett that goes beyond music--a way of life exemplified by the image their hero continues to perpetuate. On BEACH HOUSE ON THE MOON, Buffett is still the good-time Charlie with a tan, a tropical drink, and a loud shirt.
A closer listen reveals a deeper side to the man's songwriting. For instance, while the title song features a lilting, semi-tropical rhythms and steel drum coloring, the minor key melody supports some literate, sophisticated lyrical imagery. That's not to say Buffett's lost his famed sense of humor--check out his version of John D. Loudermilk's sarcastically good-natured "You Call It Jogging" (which contains the punch line: "I call it runnin' around"). It's the marriage of relaxed party atmosphere and thoughtful sentiments that make BEACH HOUSE such a well-balanced album.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/8-7/22/99, pp.151-2) - 3 stars (out of 5) - "...Buffett has proved with his latest public offering that his core business - making music - remains in good stead."
Entertainment Weekly (5/28/99, p.144) - "...Buffet's 31st album finds the escapist troubadour musing on martality and regret with a pensiveness that's considerably more compelling thatn his usual laid-back hedonism..." - Rating: B
CMJ (6/7/99, p.34) - "...BEACH HOUSE is all about music....well-honed tracks that sets down a laid-back groove made meaty by a top-notch supporting cast."
