iTunes Review

Though Jackson Browne made his reputation in the 1970s as a sensitive Southern California singer-songwriter, he has always infused his music with an environmental and social consciousness that eventually tipped towards the outwardly political in the 1980s. Though in the ensuing decades he has slowed his output considerably, Browne still writes with great care and precision. He makes pointed attacks at current world situations (the ominous extended modest funk that haunts the Katrina-concerned “Where Were You,” the soulful menace of “The Drums of War”), yet still manages to express a sense of hope and wonder. Sometimes it’s the nostalgia underpinning “Off of Wonderland,” where the 1960s bounce between the optimism of soon to be pursued dreams and the uncertain dangers lurking, or the smooth balladry of  “Going Down to Cuba,” a trip made before the U.S. embargo. He explores the carnal side that’s left after a day of fretting over the world situations (“Just Say Yeah,” “Live Nude Cabaret”). Browne doesn’t attempt any real musical surprises; he’s just checking in and letting us know where he’s at as he notices how time marches on.

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!

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,...
