CD Reviews

Country influenced,introspective and a true gem
Lance G. Rigley | Brisbane, Queensland Australia | 07/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is not often that the Peter Pan goodtime songsmith displays a more serious and realistic bent in his songwriting collections..but this was such an occasion.We all know and love the songs by heart....but this was a mixture of country influenced,calypso Gulf stream beats with some lyrics that were conveying that even Jimmy can have personal downs and that the *Wild Life Can Betray You*and Jimmys right hand woman was *Going Out Of his Life*. This ranks amongst my favoutite JB collections,it is personal and Jimmy shows a sensitive grasp of the world as well as mixing it with his usual dose of insanity that shows us all that the world shouldnt really be taken that seriously after all. This does not immediately lend itself to the blind devoted parrothead,because quite frankly Jimmy could just about do anything and they would find it amazing.If you have some experience in life and have followed him since Before The Beach ,days this is a must have.What has made Buffett so entertaining and such a survivor,is his ability to truely capture a moment and write witty humorous *life* songs.He has done this in spades here. The standouts on here,are *Come To The Moon*,*Rag top Day*and the beautiful,*When The Wild Life Betrays Me* and *Down On the Knees Of My Heart*and *Shes Going Out Of My Mind*.If you are a parrothead put the CD in perspective by realizing he was having marital problems at this time..he is very much human!!!This is just as personal and perceptive of life as *Coconut Telegraph*. As with every review of a JB CD ,everyone has a different opinion and his music effects everyone differently..I love this CD,I will always play it..I think Jimmy achieved his it and maybe it will work for you to..5 stars from the master court jester....with the human touch."
Follow La Vie Dansante!

"I can give this 5 stars just based on the fact that Buffett's best song ever, "La Vie Dansante," is on it. I was a pretty decent Buffett fan for quite a few years when I first heard this song and it knocked me on my Parrothead. "La Vie..." shows that Jimmy is an excellent songwriter...and can go a lot deeper than something on the level of, say, "Cheeseburger In Paradise" or "Why Don't We Get Drunk."Also included are other gems like "Knees Of My Heart" (a concert favorite!), "Come To The Moon," "Who's The Blonde Stranger?," "Burn That Bridge," and the wonderful "Rag Top Day." This is an excellent CD start to finish...very enjoyable indeed.And by the way...don't forget to follow "La Vie Dansante"...your feets (and your heart) will thank you!"
One of his best!

"Jimmy takes you on a fantastic ride with a convertable on Ragtop Day. Come to the Moon is a great song. From cover to cover this is a greatly under-rated album. I bought it not knowing any of the songs and now consider it a gem."
