Largely comprising original material, Jimmy Buffett's Christmas Island is a holiday album that only parrotheads need bother with. Though Buffett is relaxed and entertaining, few of his new Christmas songs are remarkable and his rearrangements of classic carols are rather forced. Still, Christmas Island remains a pleasant diversion for his dedicated fans, even if it isn't a particularly memorable one.
