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.

Format: Audio CD
The best record albums are more than the sum of their songs, working together to create a piece that stands together as a unit. Jimmy Buffett's "Barometer Soup," for instance, does just that, as it's bound together by its concept (songs inspired by other artists who were in turn inspired by Key West).
"Volcano" doesn't have that synergy working for it, and as a result, it's not an album that merits a lot of listens in album form. It does merit raiding for mix tapes -- a favorite pastime of many a Parrothead -- as some of Jimmy's most popular songs from this period are on the album: "Fins" is familiar to anyone who's ever seen Jimmy in concert, "Volcano" is great (although with extremely dated topical lyrics at this point), "Treat Her Like a Lady" and "Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants" are great, and "Boat Drinks" is well-known if only because it somehow squeaked onto Jimmy's greatest hit album, "Songs You Know By Heart."
The other songs are often nice -- "Dreamsicle" and "Sending the Old Man Home" are pleasant, if unremarkable -- but this isn't the first or second or third album to pick up when assembling a Buffett collection from scratch. ("Son of a Son of a Sailor," "Barometer Soup" and "Songs You Know By Heart" would be my picks for the new Parrothead.)
Still, "Volcano" is a decent album, one that contains plenty of good songs ... in other words, it's no "Fruitcakes." Oy.
See you at the concert!

Volcano is not as consistently strong as some of Jimmy Buffett's previous albums, but is a very enjoyable listen from beginning to end. The album was actually recorded in the tropics and the Caribbean vibe permeates the album. "Fins" is well known by anyone who has attended one of Mr. Buffett's concerts as it is a major audience participation number. Besides that, it is a great song that has an extremely catchy chorus. The title track is ripe with steel drums and a calypso sound but suffers just a bit from the extremely dated lyrics (example being a mention of Three Mile Island). "Treat Her Like A Lady" is strong number as is "Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants". "Boat Drinks" is a fun song and finds Mr. Buffett at his tropical best while "Dreamsicle" is pleasant. Overall, Volcano has some great songs, but lacks consistency
