I never understood or participated in the Jimmy Buffet controversy here.

LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Jimmy Buffett proved he isn't "wasting away" anywhere as he topped the U.S. pop albums chart on Wednesday for the first time in his three-decade career.

The Washington Post reviewed Buffet's new album, with the headline 'Jimmy Buffet at Low Tide' There were some real gems of wit in the review ....

- Corona-deluded parrotheads

- somehow give's Motley Crue's 'Girls, Girls, Girls' newfound poignancy

- A tropical Trump, lording over theme restaurants, a clothing line, and those sold-out summer spectacles that allow 9-to-5ers believe they're wastin' away in paradise -- when they're choking on car fumes in Bristow, Va. [[that's the location of the big outdoor arena outside of DC]]

And for those who hate both Buffet and hippies, your hate can now be intensified, as the Grateful Dead song 'Scarlet Begonias' is covered on this release.

The full review can be read here:

This is the sixth sign of the apocalypse.

We are now officially in the end times.

The masses must be starving, but not know where to look for appropriate musical nourishment.

That, or its difficult for the Mai Kai Gents or even the Blue Hawaiians to get appropriate sponsorship from a label.

The whole jimmy buffet thing again...
I don't particularly care for all of his music BUT I would waste away in margaritaville (if the airfare was free, and by sea plane, or I was given a nice all wood 50 foot topsail schooner to get there)
AND one day I will be a pirate who looks at 40. If you're a sailor, you can at least relate to some of the lyrics.

I sail way more than any person who doesn't get paid should, and Buffet still annoys me. Any one listen to Big Sandy?

Sit on a beach in the Florida Keys and sip a Margirita or Corona or even better yet sail around them and do the same.

Then you will understand Buffet.

Foamy, I listen to a litttle Big Sandy.

The return of Buffet is all Alan Jackson's fault. After the success of that damn "5 o'clock somewhere" song, Buffet recruited every country star he could and just about every song on his new album (to my understanding) has some country artist singing along with him. Too late Jimmy, real country died last year with the passing of Johnny Cash. The man in black is turning in his grave. They never played any of Cash's new songs from the past two decades but Jimmy Buffet hops on the band wagon and get tons of air time. Sad Times were living in, sad time.

PS> Big Sandy Rocks!!!!
