    Breezy love letter to island life

    As gratifying as it is to hear Chesney strip away the Nashville gloss of his earlier albums, it will take listeners with a high threshold for cynicism to enjoy this adulatory billet doux. The odes to joy grow tiresome by mid-album, and the singular focus takes on the myopia of a religious awakening. One might be tempted to think that Chesney's adopting Jimmy Buffet's party life, but in reality he's more interested in swinging blissfully in a hammock. And while this contentedness is pleasant for a song or two, the happy-go-lucky beach bum's life lacks the drama needed to fuel lastingly compelling stories. ¶ The gentle production and light melodies are a nice turn, showing Chesney to be a gifted singer in addition to the star he's already proved himself to be. Buffet's fans are likely to find this hasn't enough grit or emotional depth to pique their interest, and Chesney's fans are going to be split among those who truly enjoy this breezy turn and those who wonder what happened to the singer's country roots. The rest of us will sip a few songs and then move on to something more substantial. ¶ 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.
