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.

My favorite, well it is in a tie with A Pirate Looks at 40, song by Jimmy is on this CD, and ONLY on this CD....Bring Back the Magic. So indescribably beautiful, and the rest of the CD is good, too, but this song is just...well, words escape me. Maybe Jimmy would have a few words for this song!

There are not enough good things to say about ANY Jimmy Buffett Musical selection. This will be one You won't want to miss purchasing. From the CD's first song, "Homemade Music," to his tribute song and his show of appreciation to Mark Twain, and conclusion great, "That's What Living Is To Me," Every song in between will surely be a listening experience any Parrothead will remember.

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.

If you're already a fan of Jimmy Buffett, then you will most likely enjoy this album, especially if you skip over the first two tracks. After that, the rest of the album is a great listen, beginning with "Bring Back the Magic". The standout song on the album, though, and the reason I initially bought it, is the last track, "That's What Living is to Me". A somewhat wistful tune about the simple pleasures of life, it's Jimmy at his best, when he's conjuring up images from far away lands, but reminding you that wherever you go, people are just people.

I've always enjoyed "Pre-You" because it reminds me of my own philosophy on love, that the past is the past and we are who we are because of it, but it's nothing to fixate on when what we have right now is so good. "King of Somewhere Hot", "Great Heart", and "Smart Woman (In a Real Short Skirt)" are all fun songs, well-executed, that offer some of the only faster-paced tunes on the album. All great songs that I continue to listen to.

As to the first two tracks, well they are examples of the somewhat gimmicky songs that Jimmy has a tendency to force into albums. They're not bad, but they're very much products of the late 80s when they were produced. They're not bad, they're just not songs that I want to listen to. Fortunately, they're easy to skip over and the rest of the album more than makes up for it.
