Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.116
3.5 stars out of 5 - "The reassuring message is that getting older isn't all bad once you learn how to roll with the swell and, most important of all, chill out."
Rolling Stone - p.141
Included in Rolling Stone's Top 50 Records Of 2004 - "[T]he laid-back shuffle of songs such as the honky-tonk title track has earned him his first-ever Number One album."
Entertainment Weekly - p.79
"Buffett's smart - he knows the country demo is his as well, and clever genre mash-ups like 'Conky Tonkin'' and the oldie 'Sea of Heartbreak' make this experiment work." - Grade: B

Product Description:

As most devoted Parrotheads are well aware, Jimmy Buffett is no stranger to country music. Before he developed his trademark brand of Caribbean-influenced good-time pop, the sun-loving singer paid his dues on the Nashville circuit, eventually recording two albums of accomplished, if not particularly commercially successful, country rock (the best tracks from which were collected on 1994's BACK TO THE BEACH). With LICENSE TO CHILL, Buffett brings the cowboys to the beach, employing the talents of Music City's first-call studio musicians and superstar performers. Buffett's music is so comfortable that duet contributions from artists as diverse as Toby Keith, Nanci Griffith, and Bill Withers all sound perfectly at home. By applying island rhythms to country classics and combining steel of the pedal and drum varieties in a single song, Buffett has once again developed a new hybrid style that could perhaps be called "all-American world music."
