It's Five O'Clock Somewhere
Label: Mailboat Records
A double-disc citation to party from the aloha enforcer of Parrothead Nation, Live in Anguilla, recorded on a Caribbean island, proves at least one thing: Jimmy Buffett may be looking at his third decade playing many of these songs, but he sounds like he's still having a good time doing it. The band has evolved into a surprisingly New Orleans-ish rockin' soul unit, effectively laying to rest fears anyone distressed by all the country duets Buffett's been popping up on might have. Plus, there really are few songs that say it the way "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere" does.
