Product Description

Amazon.com

Jimmy Buffett's music has always had an easy-in-the-islands feel to it, and if his songs seem like postcards sent from exotic locations or notes hastily scribbled on a bar napkin, that's more or less what they are. On Buffett's 31st album, the singer/songwriter, bestselling author, pilot, and son of a son of a sailor offers alternately wry and sentimental observations on everything from our impending doom ("Waiting for the Next Explosion") and the appeal of Cajun food ("I Will Play for Gumbo") to the ultimate vacation getaway ("Beach House on the Moon") and life's sweet mysteries ("Oysters & Pearls"). Buffett also tries on a couple of intriguing covers, including Bruce Cockburn's pensive "Pacing the Cage," Mose Allison's sly "You Call It Jogging," and Fred Neil's laid-back "Lucky Stars." Thanks to the return of a few long-lost members of his Coral Reefer Band, Beach House on the Moon often recalls Buffett's early albums--cause enough for Parrotheads everywhere to fire up the blender, string up the hammock, and give this one a spin. --Daniel Durchholz

Customer Reviews

Like most, I did not know what to think after my first listen.
Amazon Customer
The worst song on the album was the title track, which sounds too much like Remittance Man etc.
K. Bortz
Any TRUE Parrothead would love it, Simply put..."It's Jimmy Buffett".

I broke up with my first serious boyfriend the summer that "Margaritaville" hit the charts, and I will always remember it vividly. Listened to this CD at work... popped it into my computer, and WOW. There was Jimmy on the screen. If you haven't yet check out the enhanced video that you can watch on your computer. The songs are more deliberate and lyrical than some of his other work. I especially liked the title cut and "Oysters & Pearls." Gave it to my little sister for her 40th birthday and she proclaimed it her "favorite present." From the other reviews, I would suggest previewing this CD but I think older parrotheads will love it.

I got the album for Father's Day. After one listen I was hooked. Its the same old Buffett humour/sound. It has R&B, country, tropic style music. Love those steel drums! I have absolutely fallen in love with "Oysters & Pearls". Beautiful music, thoughtful lyrics. The tune comments some take chances while most others play it safe. "I will play for Gumbo" is sort of a Cheeseburger In Paradise of the 90s. Its upbeat and a lot of fun. "You call It Joggin" is a nice jazz flavoured tune featuring a horn section. "I Don't Know And I Don't Care" is classic Buffett which has a typical Buffett lyric: I've got a PBS mind in an MTV world. Other standouts are "Waiting For The Next Explosion", "Flesh & Bones", "A Permament Reminder Of A Temporary Feeling", "Pacing The Cage" Overall this album is relaxing with some upbeat tunes, introspective and one Buffett's best efforts ever.

It's been said that Jimmy Buffett provides an escape for every baby-boomer with a lousy job and credit card bills to face. On this album, he often sounds like just such an animal. Surprisingly void of beach-and-bar songs, this one clearly finds our hero in a landlubber frame of mind. Nonetheless, the Pirate Looking At 53 is still capable of soundbite lyrics like "I got a PBS mind in an MTV world" and, if some of this album's best songs were not written by Buffett (an unusual circumstance for him), his knack for putting his own stamp on others' songs is still in fine form. This is not an every-song-is-a-gem album, but in the age of skip buttons, there's plenty to recommend it.
The sad truth is, several of Buffett's own contributions find him in a holding pattern as a writer, particularly "Math Suks," reportedly a grafitti-inspired title and easily among his least impressive songs ever. (Then again, anyone who recalls the eighth grade could identify!) But Bruce Cockburn's "Pacing the Cage" more than makes up for such shortcomings. A rather flowery statement of uncertainty and isolation, it's a bit outside Buffett's usual deadpan style, but his knowing delivery and the subtle instrumental backing put the song right at home in his canon. In a similar slow-song vein, "Semi-True Story" and "Lucky Stars" find Buffett as close to his country roots as he's been at any time in the past two decades. They also provide a welcome dose of his patented low-key humor, although he didn't write either of them. (The former, featuring a reference to a legendary 1973 parking lot incident involving Buffett, will be a special treat to serious fans.

I like many of Jimmy's most recent albums -- "Banana Wind" and especially "Barometer Soup" are some of my favorites -- but as with all of Jimmy's albums, there's hits and misses. "Beach House on the Moon," for me, is a miss, much as "Fruitcakes" was.
It's entirely possible that he's speaking to another segment of his audience, although I honestly don't know what would distinguish them -- they like really clumsy novelty songs and songs that gaze so hard into Jimmy's navel they're unlistenable?
I don't need his albums to all be bouncy bar rock -- one of my favorites, "Son of a Son of a Sailor" is almost entirely wistful -- but I do need to be able to connect with the music and lyrics better than I can with "Beach House on the Moon."
I'd give this album a pass, Parrotheads, and pick up an earlier album you might have missed.

To write anything that intends to be critical of a JB release is tantamount to heresy or insanity,a little disappointing even..but it must be said,this is not my favourite JB CD,and never will be.Despite the glowing previous reviews,there are flaws in this offering,that only the blind devotion of a Parrothead would miss. Firstly,*Maths Suks* should never have seen the light of day,its an embarassment,enough said.I have a great sense of humour but this is ridiculous for a grown man to write about ,let alone sing.Jimmy is a travelling troupador to me not a baffoon!!! Secondly,what the hell is JB singing other peoples songs for,if I wanted to listen to Bruce Cockburn and others I buy their CDs.I love Jimmy's songs in preference, no matter how good the others are. Thirdly,this is not an accessible CD,say as Changes In Latitudes Changes In Attitudes,A1A,Riddles In The Sand,or Banana Wind ARE!! Fourthly,where is the One Particular Harbour feel,where is the Jimmy trademark..what the hell is maritial infidelity doing on here?????and someone elses song no end!!!! I do agree that there are great songs on this CD,and as a fan of 25 years I think I am qualified to pick them.*Gumbo* is vintage JB and deservedly will appear in the concert set.Oysters And Pearls and Lucky Stars reflect what Jimmy has always been able to say about our condition,and his sense of humour is evident in *Waiting For The Next Explosion*.I took a long time to get into this,but I was prepared to go the distance..for the unfamiliar,I wonder???If he has written for the converted I suppose this will appeal.The title track and for that matter the first couple of songs lack zest and although they have familiar themes we all love and know by heart..they didnt make me smile.Read more ›
