Allmusic reviewer William Ruhlmann says One Particular Harbour was something like a comeback, with Buffett's best batch of songs since Son of a Son of a Sailor in 1978" and the title single, "One Particular Harbour," is a fan favorite, and is sometimes considered part of "The Big 8" that Buffett has played at almost all of his concerts.
