Editors’ Notes

Having been a voice of personal reflection in the ‘70s and of political conscience through much of the ‘80s, Jackson Browne has spent the ensuing decades refining his thoughts. He’s worked with his band to reignite his music, while his lyrics remain sincerely crafted and show a flair for being heard as music. Here, words flow effortlessly throughout the mischievous title track, where he “failed to hear the heart that was beating alone.” The guitars snarl, the harmonies race for the sun, and the song hits the freeway with the perfect cruise. “The Night Inside Me” aches with Browne’s memories of youth and the world of untapped possibilities that have since come true. While “Casino Nation” looks into questionable economic principles, “Sergio Leone” adds a spaghetti western feel (with a Fender Rhodes!) to a song “where the money is immortal and the killing never ends.” Browne’s ability to put a human face on such desperation remains one of his greatest talents, along with the romantic sweet surrender seen on “My Stunning Mystery Companion.”

Customer Reviews


Comparing any artists current work to that of their high watermark is missing the point. Jackson Browne is not trying to reinvent "The Pretender", this is Jackson Browne as he exists now. If you value the structure of a song over pyrotechnics and lyrics that please on multiple levels, you'll find this is a solid and enjoyable effort. Highlights for me are "Naked Ride Home", "Never Stop" and "My Stunning Mystery Companion".

No greater singer song writer

We have many great singer songwriters in the USA. At the Top is Jackson...I'd say a few as great but none greater...the way he's taken his work an reworked it into his acoustic touring is brilliant...this album has a few known gems....looking forward to exploring it further with the experience of how Jackson Browne evokes in me a visceral reaction that I experience with few other musicians in this way...


Not his best work. His early works are far superior to what he's done in the last decade.

In many ways, Jackson Browne was the quintessential sensitive California singer/songwriter of the early '70s. Only Joni Mitchell and James Taylor ranked alongside him in terms of influence, but neither artist tapped into the post-'60s Zeitgeist like Browne. While the majority of his classic '70s work was unflinchingly personal, it nevertheless provided a touchstone for a generation of maturing baby boomers coming to terms with adulthood. Not only did his introspective, literate lyrics strike a nerve,...
