    That there's more to Jimmy Buffet than parrotheads, "Margaritaville," and cheeseburgers in Paradise has never been more apparent than on this laid-back collection of masterly songwriting. Buffet's songs combine the thoughtful craft of an accomplished songsmith with a deceptive light-heartedness; by the time you're at the first chorus he's already reeled you in.
    Though he's sung a few novelty songs in his time, and performs a couple here, he's no novelty act, as evidenced by songs such as "All the Ways I Want You" and the gorgeous "Savannah Fare You Well," both recalling the golden age of '60s and '70s singer/songwriters. "Last Man Standing" conjures the '70s, too, with a dirty funk reminiscent of Little Feat, while Sonny Landreth's "USS Zydecoldsmobile," featuring Landreth himself on slide guitar, is as close as this relaxed set gets to an incendiary rocker. Mostly though, FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD is a timely reminder of Jimmy Buffet's strengths as storyteller and songwriter, and that there's life beyond Nashville's production line songwriting about cookie-cutter topics.
