Lucky Old Sun [Deluxe Edition]

( 15 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Kenny Chesney may title his 12th album after the pop standard that he sings here with Willie Nelson, but don't mistake Lucky Old Sun for Nelson's Stardust. Chesney is tipping his hat not to the Great American Songbook but the great ball in the sky, the one that shines on beaches from coast to coast, with the Gulf of Mexico being a particular favorite in his book. Lucky Old Sun is designed to be a soundtrack to laid-back afternoons on warm sand, which by now is very familiar territory for Chesney in his personal and professional life. Since Chesney swaps Jimmy Buffett's boozy goofball schtick for gentle strumming, this isn't music for a party, it's music that ...

Since Chesney swaps Jimmy Buffett's boozy goofball schtick for gentle strumming, this isn't music for a party, it's music that laps softly against the shore. To be sure, there's some pleasure to be had here, but it's all about appreciating the album as pure texture and sunbleached mood music, which is appealing as far as it goes. [The Deluxe Edition contains a second disc with four live tracks.]
New York Times - Jon Pareles
Instead of his usual steady-chugging country-rock, the music is quiet acoustic guitar picking. “Lucky Old Sun” is as close as Mr. Chesney has gotten to an unplugged album....Through the album, Mr. Chesney steers the songs toward half-smiles or at least a certain resigned acceptance, but he still sounds less complacent than ever.
Entertainment Weekly - Chris Willman
A batch of songs focused on his preoccupation with sailing the Caribbean; it's a slightly more commercial sequel to 2005's similarly mellow and nautical Be as You Are. [B]

    Like Going to the Beach, Without Leaving the House

    Many, many artists have tried to create this feeling for those who are stuck in a New England winter, in the Midwest, or who just have no funds for a beach vacation. Chesney really brings the feeling to life with his album "Lucky Old Sun."

    As the Editorial Review mentions, this is not fun-in-the-sun music, but the type that is the soundtrack to dangling your toes in the water while you contemplate life at the end of a pier. Heartfelt lyrics like, "...watching the sun, like you disappear..." allow you to close your eyes and almost feel Chesney's own pain. On songs like "Keys in the Conch Shell" you can imagine yourself in a billowy sundress and sandals, lounging around Chesney's beach hut with a gentle ocean breeze blowing through the open windows.

    This album successfully evokes the lazy beach feelings while showcasing Chesney's soothing, genuine voice. "Lucky Old Sun" is the best yet of the "new" Kenny Chesney sound (the Buffett-inspired one).
