The latitude and the attitude are the same, you'll be happy to hear. The good-natured, laid-back guy who has put out almost an album a year for 25 years is back again. Buffett has a world-wide following of Parrot Heads, probably because he keeps giving 'em what they want. In this case, that's Caribbean-flavored, blues-based pop, a mellow approach, and an eye for a good story. This is wiggle-your-toes in the warm tropical water music--safe, happy (usually) and pleasant.
Buffett does manage to put an edge on some of his tunes, especially when they reflect personal travails. "Jamaica Mistaica" is a lighthearted look at a little, ahem, misunderstanding with some island law-enforcement personnel. He sounds downright angry in "Overkill," which takes a shot at materialism and the mansion-on-the-hill crowd. This slightly goofy, heart-on-the-sleeve pop should have appeal for Parrot Heads and newcomers alike.
