Reseña de álbum

Time the Conqueror is Jackson Browne's first studio offering in six years. The last was 2002's Naked Ride Home for Elektra. Browne established his sound in the '70s and has made precious few adjustments, with the exception of a couple of records in the '80s where the keyboards and drum machines of the period were woven into his heady, West Coast pop, singer/songwriter mix. Whereas his '90s albums I'm Alive and Looking East, as well as Naked Ride Home, mirrored the personal concerns of his '70s records in more elegiac terms, Time the Conqueror returns in some ways to Browne's more overtly political statements from the '80s such as Lives in the Balance and World in Motion and weighs them against the personal, but he's all but forgotten how to write hooks. The title track is as personal as it gets; its breezy, cut-time beat and airy melody signals motion like the white lines clicking by on a highway. They underscore both time and life passing away, juxtaposed against the need to appreciate each moment. Browne accepts the blindness of the future as he does the helplessness of the past, though he doesn't accept aging. The next couple of tracks underscore this. There's the elegy to the '60s in "Off to Wonderland," a paean to the lost innocence of the heady years of idealism betrayed in both the Kennedys' and Martin Luther King's murders. The last line in this midtempo rock ballad is: "Didn't we believe that love would carry on/Wouldn't we receive enough/If we could just believe in one another/As much as we believed in John." It was wonderland, all right; these ideals were not hollow but they had no basis in American reality. The hardest rocking cut is "The Drums of War," which is Browne at his most didactic. It's as much a renewed call to arms as it is an indictment of the Bush years. It's a quickly passing moment, however, in that the very next track, "The Arms of Night," is a spiritual paean urging the listener to seek love in the right places. It's tender, confused, and authentic, but dull. "Where Were You?" has more teeth with its stuttering attempt at 21st century funk. Musically it serves more as a rock track with actual rhythm than it does funk. It's another socio-political indictment of alleged apathy in the post-millennial age. This album goes on, with no real aim other than telling us things that Browne's been thinking about these days (with the exception of the Latin-tinged "Goin' Down to Cuba," the best tune here; it's the only song with something resembling a hook). Browne seems to be speaking to his own generation; he's still trying to make sense of the world he wanted to live in and the one he actually does. Next time out, though, instead of worrying about his "enlightened" perspective, perhaps he should pay more attention to what made his earlier songs feel as if he actually owned one: craft.

Time the Conqueror

I was fortunate to catch Jackson Browne live at the Orpheum on September 16th in Boston. He played this new album song by song intertwined with some of his oldest and brightest. Throughout the performance I was inspired to repeatedly call out for "I Am A Patriot," written by Steve Van Zant, but recorded and popularized by Jackson Browne. Every note, every word called the audience to learn from the past, pay attention to our present, and live for our future. I knew it was only a matter of days until the album would be released and I would be able to hear it and sing with Jackson once again. Many thanks to a wise friend, always the old soul.

I want those tears again...

Jackson Browne and I are just about the same age, so you can say that we grew up together. I have everyone of his albums and I can play anyone of them and get a rush, but I have to be honest, nothing has more effect on me than his older work. No other musican has ever effected me more than this man, no one! As a father and family man, I have had a life that parallels his life in many ways. All have to do is put on songs like "For A Dancer", "The Pretender", "The Only Child", "Daddy's Tune" or "Hold On, Hold Out" to bring a "deluge" of tears to my eyes. I miss the beautiful violin and slide guitar of David Lindley, the Rosemary Butlers, the Bonnie Raitts, the Waddy Wachtels, the Don Henleys, the Glenn Freys, the Graham Nashs, the David Crosbys who brought so much to this man's music but never once overpowered his music. As I sit here typing I am listening to "Sleep's Dark And Silent Gate," sure enough, here come those tears again...I hope and pray that Jackson Browne will again write the songs that will have that same effect on this old soul.  Others here are right, this album is worth the money and I will keep listening. I am sure it will "grow on me." Jackson is right, "Time IS the Conqueror." "Time" is overwhelming me but I want to be free of all politics when I listen to my favorite artist. Please make those tears come again! God Bless you Jackson and all who love this man!--Denny

Just Say Yeah (to buying this album and basking in its glory)

If you're a fan of Looking East, I'm Alive, and The Naked Ride Home, you'll love this album. Jackson dishes out some fantastic love songs (Just Say Yeah, Live Nude Cabaret), personal songs (Giving that Heaven Away, Off of Wonderland), political songs (Drums of War, Where Were You, Far from the Arms of Hunger), and perhaps the best of the bunch, a fun song with an exciting tune, "Going Down to Cuba." If you're not a big fan of Jackson's political songs, you'll be pleased to find that "The Drums of War" and "Where Were You?" have AWESOME beats and guitar riffs; so even if you don't appreciate the message, you'll probably still love the music. One of the coolest parts of the album, for me, is when Jackson references "Everyman" in "Off of Wonderland." If you listen close enough, you'll find that the chord progression in "Off of Wonderland" nearly matches that of "For Everyman" at times...which really brings you back to his early albums. For those of you who saw Jackson's solo acoustic tour, the song "See Love Coming" is "Just Say Yeah" on this album; in my opinion this song fits right in with "Somebody's Baby" and "I'm Alive." Jackson certainly doesn't disappoint. Enjoy!

Jackson Browne fue en muchos sentidos el prototípico cantautor californiano de principios de los '70. Sólo Joni Mitchell y James Taylor estaban a la par en términos de influencia, pero ninguno de ellos se sumergió en el zeitgeist post '60 como Browne. Aunque la mayor parte de su memorable producción de la década del ‘70 fue extremadamente personal, sirvió como piedra angular para una generación de baby boomers que estaban llegando a la adultez. Sus introspectivas letras...
