Take the Weather with You

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Whenever Jimmy Buffett is in charge of the weather forecast, you can bet that the atmosphere will be sunny and warm, which is certainly the case on this breezily engaging set. While his last outing, the country-drenched License to Chill, was a full-on celebration of Nashville, Take the Weather with You is more of a travelogue -- a multi-stop cruise through some of the Pirate's favorite ports. Many of those, naturally enough, are located on the Gulf Coast, which accounts for songs like the belly-up-to-the-bar romp "Bama Breeze" and Buffett's take on Mary Gauthier's "Wheel Inside the Wheel," a swampy rocker enlivened by Sonny Landreth's spine-tingling slide guitar. ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Whenever Jimmy Buffett is in charge of the weather forecast, you can bet that the atmosphere will be sunny and warm, which is certainly the case on this breezily engaging set. While his last outing, the country-drenched License to Chill, was a full-on celebration of Nashville, Take the Weather with You is more of a travelogue -- a multi-stop cruise through some of the Pirate's favorite ports. Many of those, naturally enough, are located on the Gulf Coast, which accounts for songs like the belly-up-to-the-bar romp "Bama Breeze" and Buffett's take on Mary Gauthier's "Wheel Inside the Wheel," a swampy rocker enlivened by Sonny Landreth's spine-tingling slide guitar. Buffett takes listeners a bit farther south on a passel of island-themed songs, such as the steel drum-led strut "Party at the End of the World," which all but dares listeners to stay in their seats. Parrot heads are used to hearing Buffett swim in those waters, but he takes some intriguing side trips here as well, hitting Mexico via the Delta on "Cinco de Mayo in Memphis," which uses mariachi horns as the focal point of a blustery blues ditty, and even setting sail for the land Down Under. He makes the latter leap on the disc's title track -- a cover of the Crowded House classic on which he's backed by members of Brit-rock faves Gomez. It's like an hour's worth of sunshine that can be uncorked to brighten up even the dreariest winter day.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
After a brief dalliance with contemporary country on 2004's License to Chill, Jimmy Buffett returns to his tried-and-true Caribbean pop with Take the Weather With You, and if anybody familiar with the Crowded House tune that lends its title to this thought that it would be Jimmy Buffett's move toward subtle, tasteful tunes, just doesn't know Buffett all that well. If anything, Take the Weather With You leans even more heavily on the cheerfully silly pseudo-novelties that have been his stock in trade since at least "Cheeseburger in Paradise," if not longer. Titles like "Cinco de Mayo in Memphis" and "Reggabilly Hill" are a pretty clear tip-off to that, and there's more where these came from: even such seemingly straight-ahead songs like "Elvis Presley Blues" bring the yucks, too, and this whole record has an air of frivolity that is not uncommon for Buffett, but the sheer magnitude of mirth here is a little disarming, particularly coming on the heels of such relatively recent, low-key adventures as License to Chill or Don't Stop the Carnival. Not that Buffett shies away from the big issues: he tackles the chaos that terrorism has wrought in the 21st century and he confronts the alienation of the digital world, but he does them under the guise of "Party at the End of the World" and "Everybody's on the Phone," two sunny joke-laden larks that suggests that the best thing to do is just relax and party. There's some merit to such an argument, since it's better in times of stress to ease tension than to stoke it, but in order to get with Buffett's party you have to share Buffett's attitude -- in other words, if you're not already a Parrothead, Weather With You is not the album to win you over, since it is pure, unadulterated Jimmy Buffett, containing everything his fans love about him and everything his detractors hate. There are plenty of things that will grate on the those who have little patience for Buffett's easy-rolling music and corny jokes -- performances so laid-back they verge on lazy, puns and obvious quips are abundant -- but these are the things that appeal to his fans, and these traits are heard at their peak on Take the Weather With You. There are plenty of songs that are directly pitched to Buffett's longtime fans -- songs about turning into grandparents, songs about watching college football on the weekend, songs about how things are so different now than they were back then -- and they're not just delivered with casual charm, they're catchy and well-written too, so it's not just a strong album by Buffett's standards, but one of his better latter-day efforts. Apart from the title track, there is nothing unexpected here -- and that's unexpected not only because it's a left-field choice for Buffett, but because it's performed with a grace and subtlety the song deserves -- but after a contemporary country album, that's exactly what his fans want, and they're bound to be pleased by Take the Weather With You, which captures Jimmy Buffett in his full beach bum glory.
San Francisco Chronicle - Jaan Uhelszki
[Buffett's] 40th album "Take the Weather With You" reveals a more complicated man beneath the ever-present baseball cap.... There's something more authentic and deeply engaged here, and it elevates the album far beyond the comic books for Yuppies he's been turning out for the past two decades.

    Jimmy being Jimmy

    A truly new Buffett CD is always welcome and this one does not disappoint. Most of the songs are pure Buffett in nature. Some even surprise a little- including a very nice cover of Take the Weather With You and Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On. I have to disagree with the person who thought there was too much country and not enough of the usual Buffett. Jimmy Buffett has dabbled in many genre's of music over the years and this CD does the same. Overall, a really fun listen

    Great New Buffett

    This is probably one of the best albums that Jimmy has come out with in a decade or more. All excellent songs, especially "Bama Breeze."

    All around a solid performance

    Buffett puts out an album with a wide range of music but all with his simple class of style. It's a fun album with good music. Buffett still has it.

    Oh Jimmy!

    I am disappointed, this is more country (which I hate) than your best songs of the island music.
