Although 2004's When The Sun Goes Down veered slightly from the tropical twang of 2002's No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems, Kenny Chesney made a full circle return to beach bumming in 2005 with Be As You Are. Originally meant to be a side project, Chesney's tenth studio album (obviously) draws inspiration from the country calypso sound forged in the 1970s by Jimmy Buffett — but where Buffett wastes away in Margaritaville, Chesney gets contemplative with songs that muse on more serious topics than a cheeseburger in paradise. "Old Blue Chair" introduces the album with the sounds of waves crashing behind Chesney playing an acoustic guitar as he wistfully waxes introspective about his life as a touring musician and what home really means to him. Of course not all the songs here are as pensive and meditative. The playful "Guitars And Tiki Bars" grooves with rootsy reggae rhythms, island instrumentation, and buoyant lyrics about living and loving the island life as a refuge from day-to-day American stress. "Key Lime Pie" is another fun little ditty with steel drums that would well accompany a fruity cocktail and getting some sand in between your toes.
