"Smart Woman" and "Great Heart" are solid uptempo tunes.

If Mark Twain were to come back as a troubadour, his new pseudonym would be Jimmy Buffett. For Buffett fans who like the standards - Margaritaville, Fins, etc., this CD might not be your first choice. But give it a listen. In fact, give it several. These songs are stories, and the more you hear them, the more they become close friends that you'll find yourself introducing to others. My favorite tune is "That's What Living is to Me" - an homage to America's greatest writer that begins with Jimmy quoting Mark Twain's dedication from "Following the Equator" - "Be good and you will be lonesome." From the rich strums of the guitar in the beginning of the tune to the lonesome refrain, to the cast of characters that wend their way through the story, you'll feel like you've just joined Jimmy (or Twain) on a journey around the equator. My second favorite is a duet with James Taylor, "L'air de la Louisiane" - again, beautiful guitar, engaging, soft melody, and sung in French. If you like "False Echoes" you'll love this. "Great Heart" will get you off the couch and onto your feet no matter how bad of a dancer you are. It's inspirational to the point of becoming a theme song, but luckily that hasn't happened yet (except in private to us discerning dancers). Oh, and "Prince of Tides" must surely make Carl Hiaasen's favorites playlist... it's an environmental anthem worth memorizing. Teachers: pick and choose from these songs to introduce lessons on world cultures, the environment, and literature. No matter what the Parrotheads and party-ers claim, Buffett's music is thinking music. It is also soul-searching music without the preaching. Mark Twain said, "All of us contain Music & Truth, but most of us can't get it out." Jimmy can and does, and I think Mark Twain would agree.Read more ›

I've never been a fan of albums. What I mean is I've never heard an album by anyone whose songs made up a cohesive collection.

I listen to albums all the way through and then end up re-playing just the ones that made an impact on me. With Jimmy Buffett's music that could mean six or eight of the ten or twelve songs really stuck with me and I would play those songs over and over. Some songs are mere filler, and even the artist will admit to that. Having said that, let me tell you there are five songs on HOT WATER that appeal to me. They are: "Bring back the magic", L'Air De La Louisiane", "Prince of tides", "Great Heart", and "That's what living is to me". These tunes, in my opinion, are wonderful! Couple these with the five songs from OFF TO SEE THE LIZARD and you got a great Jimmy Buffett album.

HOT WATER was the first sans moustache album for Buffett and that really means nothing. I only said it because I noticed it. Oh well, who cares? Open your mind, all you "Cheeseburger in Margaritaville" fans and give this album a good listen. You, too, may find six or eight songs you like very much. The only time I've ever listened to an album all the way through (excepting, of course, the initial listening) was when I was drunk and didn't feel like getting up to skip around the album.

Jimmy Buffett....good stuff indeed.

It was during this time that MTV ruled the airwaves and the singer/songwriter was left gasping for air. Hence, "Homemade Music". It's not often I'll give a 4 star review because of one great song, but "That's What Living Is To Me" is one of Jimmy's finest moments. Besides, anyone who covers Johnny Clegg ("Great Heart" ) is alright with me.

Jimmy Buffett's Hot Water shows his fans how diverse he is. This album contains up-beat songs like "Homemade Music," a multi-lingual song: "L'air de La Louisianne," "Smart Woman" has great harmonies, and "Thats what Living is to Me" is one of my favorites. I highly recomend this album, however, I believe that you must listen to it a number of times to fully appreciate the lyrics.

Don't know for sure if anyone was thinking too hard about the situation at the time but honestly,the mid/late 80's had to be one of the most confusing times for pop musicians in terms of commercial attention. Throughout the 60's and 70's there had been a somewhat unlevel playing field in that area in terms of the black and white audience. By the next decade,despite the lip service to integration most artists black and white were having trouble crossing over unless they had a very strong visual appeal. There were a number of artists in that spectrum who were commenting in different ways on the situation. And Jimmy Buffet ended up doing one of the best concepts on that here,both lyrically and musically. Jimmy,having come up in the multi-cultural musical mix of the 70's had never shyed away from throwing in different rhythmic elements,particulary lite calypso steel drums not only to emphasize his party hearty atmosphere but also to indicate that,while not everyone is the same music from many sources can join up very well if done properly. By this time it's 1988 and.....nothing has really changed. With the advent of the digital age Jimmy Buffet relies strongly on his strenghs with a type of modernization that would prove to age very very gracefully. And with the guest list that includes Marcus Miller,Grover Washington Jr,Anthony Jackson,Steve Winwood,Steve Cropper and the Memphis Horns you know the proceedings are going to have lots of great grooves from every end of the spectrum."Homemade Music" is one of the best songs I ever heard from Buffet.An upbeat blues/funk/soul jam with some classic satirical lyrics it has that "upbeat-but-make-you-think" kind of "people" record that,while firmly rooted in the genre of the times was definately rooted somewhere strong.Read more ›
