  1. Kenny Chesney does heroes George Strait and Jimmy Buffett proud on his latest set, which has a free-and-easy feel befitting its island inspiration.
  2. It's nice to see Chesney cast in a different hue (and this one's distinctly blue), but eventually Lucky Old Sun recedes into its own down tempo, like waves drawing out to sea.
  3. It's a slightly more commercial sequel to 2005's similarly mellow and nautical Be as You Are. Lucky Old Sun feels encouragingly personal for Chesney.
  4. This is a quiet, introspective collection, predominantly an effort to find and take comfort wherever it presents itself.
  5. Through the album, Mr. Chesney steers the songs toward half-smiles or at least a certain resigned acceptance, but he still sounds less complacent than ever.
