This is an easy listening, and "feeling good" album.
Linda K. Coffell
Still, "Volcano" is a decent album, one that contains plenty of good songs ... in other words, it's no "Fruitcakes." Oy.
Beau Yarbrough
This is a great album for any of you Buffett fans out there.

Now I'm taking my time with my days. Once again, Jimmy creates an album filled with some of his best songwriting that will never see the light of a greatest hits or live album. But that's the way it should be. I want to keep these gems for myself. OK, I'm going to get personal, but Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants( Song for the Children) is one of the most beautiful songs Jimmy (or anyone) has ever written. It will always hold a special place in my heart. Stranded on a Sandbar is reason enough to by this album. I'm sure everyone's felt that way before. Dreamsicle is one of those little gems you find on evert Buffett album and ask yorself "why isn't this a hit?" OK, there are 3 tunes that are concert favorites, Fins, Volcano, and Boat Drinks but they're fun and don't bug me like Cheeseburger and Drunk do. Besides, Boat drinks is an anthem to anyone living north of Florida during the winter. Final note to all of you who sing along with Volcano. Jimmy yells out "Mr. Utley!" as in Michael, the keyboardest. Not "Mr. Ugly!" As I've heard before.5 stars. The Big Kahuna says check it out.

After just hearing Beach House on The Moon, I feel the need tohear this CD again... This is the album where I believe Jimmy'sSouthern upbringing met his Carribean passion to make for arguable the best recording he has ever put out. As someone below noted, the concert faves included Fins, Boat Drinks and Volcano, but the key to remember here is that this is an album from beginning to end with very few, if any, flaws at all. Each song has something to offer. Other albums that followed like Coconut Telegraph and Last Mango and Barometer Soup had good tracks, but didn't flow as well as this offering. Especially if you have a rum runner and a CD player with random-play mode.

This song was heard (for the first time) after 40 or 50 other Jimmy Buffett songs - it was electrifying. Jimmy Buffett has many tuneful and rhythmic 4 and 5 star (my own rating system) selections to rock all night with, but Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants is both different and terrific, as good as anything by any other artist at any time, a rare '6' on the five star scale.

"Volcano" is the album to have!!!! To newer JB fans, this is a great start to a collection. It has so many great songs, and many of the songs we do know by heart!
"Fins", "Volcano", and "Boat Drinks" are all staples of Buffett's, but let's not overlook "Treat her like a lady" and "Survive"( I Have heard this one in concert, amazing!!!), and "Sending the old man home".
For the Parakeets there is "Chanson Pour les Petits Enfants", which has a very childlike quality to it. He did this the last time I saw him in concert, and it was just so sweet.
I took French in high school, which was quite a few years ago, but I am sure it translates as "A Song for the little children".
JB has a nice soothing voice, and it is a fairy tale that will entice many children old enough to really appreciate music.
This is one you should have!!!

Jimmy was definitely in a groove when he produced this album. Besides including classics like "Volcano" "Fins" and "Boat Drinks" you can find delicately crafted ballads like "Chanson" and "Dreamsicle" (One of my personal favorites)hidden away like treasures. Jimmy is underrated as a songwriter and lyricist. Is there anyone who rhymes better? Has this guy ever made a bad album?
We all love you Jimmy.

"Fins to the left of me! Jokers to the right!" Oh, wait, wrong song. Anyway, "Volcano" is Jimmy Buffett's last album of the 1970s, and what an album it is! After a middle of the road career, Buffett truly came into his own on the 1977 album "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes". He continued his course on the 1978 album "Son of Son of a Sailor". Then comes this album, which to me is the conclusion of the late 70s' trilogy of great Gulf and Western music that begins with "Changes".

Consider this quote from the Allmusic Review of "Volcano". "Although the album contains concert favorites including the playful "Fins" and the Caribbean-flavored title track, it seems as if Buffett doesn't have as many deep insights to share on this release. The vocal help from James Taylor on "Treat Her Like a Lady" adds to the singalong chorus, but overall the ballads are uninteresting. As a result, this album marks a low point for Jimmy Buffett in a decade in which he delivered one solid album after another."

I vehemently disagree with this. First off, I find this album more engaging than some of the earlier albums, such as "A1A" and "White Carnation". Second, it shows a deep prejudice against Buffett that is prevalent in both the critical community as well as "serious fans" of music. As for myself, I fell into this trap until I really started listening to Buffett, and found quite a verstile body of work.

A lot of people write off Buffett as a one-trick pony, all fun and sun and novelty tunes, a ridiculous performer with an equally ridiculous fanbase. According to sites such as Allmusic (a website I have long used), Buffett should be serious. This can't be good music - there are no DEEP INSIGHTS. After all, that's what music is about.
