Album Review

Shortly before his death from prostate cancer in 2007, Dan Fogelberg completed his final studio album, locked it in a safe deposit box, and directed his wife to release it after his passing. Long considered one of the landmark artists of the '70s smooth singer/songwriter genre, the Illinois native released very little new material in his last decade, making the classic sound contained on Love in Time all the more welcome. Full of songs that could easily sit alongside his biggest hits such as "Longer Than," "Same Old Lang Syne," and "Leader of the Band," the album pairs Fogelberg's soothing voice and expert songcraft with just the right amount of subtle instrumental backing. "Come to the Harbor," with its jaunty strumming and electric sitar motif, sounds like Cat Stevens' "Peace Train" meets the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood," while "Sometimes a Song" is a quintessential Fogelberg love ballad, with a stick-in-the-head melody and spare, acoustic guitar-based accompaniment. A cover of Neil Young's "Birds" is dressed with gorgeous Eagles-esque vocal harmonies and serves as a poignant and chill-inducing closer, its final — and in this case literal — lyric, "it's over," seeming to echo long after the song ends. A gentle, finely crafted, and passionately performed album, Love in Time is a career coda both satisfying and bittersweet.

We've Come To Learn We Flourish Side By Side

By my count, this is Dan Fogelberg's 16th album of original music. And original it is. Far from a collection of leftovers, these are complete songs that fit well together as a complete album. Dan finished and sequenced these songs himself. He is in great voice and, as always, plays with great feeling. He plays piano on a few songs, but this is a guitar record. Look for his signiture acoustic work on "A Growing Time" and "Come to the Harbor." This collection of songs finds Dan exploring a recurring theme in his work - the permanence of love. He seems positive and hopeful...but still cautious. "Love in Time" and "Sometimes a Song" will make you smile. The last original song on the record is "Days To Come." A long standing admirer of Thomas Wolfe, Dan once again tips his hat singing, "You can't go back again." This time he decides not to. Instead, "Raise your head and run...through The Days To Come." The album closes with a more than memorable version of Neil Young's, "Birds." Beautifully written songs by one of our great artists. What a gift Dan Fogelberg left us.

from Seattle

Long-time fans will cherish this final artistic statement from the late, great Dan Fogelberg. Recorded while he was ill, he asked his wife to release it after his death. He passed December 16, 2007. The title track, "Love In Time" stands out as vintage Dan, an insightful look at the elusive nature of love...that ROCKS!!! "The Colors of Eve" reminds us that Dan was a true poet, not just a lyricist. My favorite is "Birds", a Neil Young song that I assume is dedicated to his lovely wife, Jean, foreshadowing the premature goodbye to come, an unspeakable injustice, and at the same time a pledge to be with her always. A virtuoso on multiple instruments, songwriter, remarkably versatile vocalist, producer, composer.....there will never be another like him. This final gift to his fans is a Fogelberg classic. Rest in peace.

Your page of history filled, your dreams dreamed...Thank you, Dan

This album is really something to be cherished - thanks, Dan, one last time, and thanks to Jean Fogelberg and others for making it happen. There are two great older Dan compositions that now are instant DF classics - Diamonds To Dust and Nature Of The Game - as well as several wonderful new ballads, the ringing title song (which sounds like it could have come straight off The Innocent Age or Windows And Walls), and two terrific covers that really help put a fitting coda to Dan's beautiful body of work: Larry Hickman's Soft Voice and, most notably, Neil Young's Birds, which seems to serve as Dan's farewell to his music, to his love, and, if it's not too presumptuous, to all of us. The final note of this final track on the final DF album evokes the opening note on the opening song on his first album, the beautiful string intro to To The Morning, and will forever bookend the incredible music he gave us over the years. Peace.

If James Taylor epitomized the definition and the original, late-'60s incarnation of the term singer/songwriter, Dan Fogelberg exemplified the late-'70s equivalent of that term at its most highly developed and successful, with a string of platinum-selling albums and singles into the early '80s and a long career afterward, interrupted only by a health crisis that led to his untimely death in 2007. He came out of a musical family, born Daniel Grayling Fogelberg on August 13, 1951, in Peoria, IL, where...
