Late For the Sky is now more than 25 years old, but to me it still sounds as fresh today as it did back in the 70s. If you have rarely listened to Jackson Browne or have always wondered what all the fuss was about then just listen to 'For A Dancer' , which was stangely missing from his recent 'Greatest Hits compilation.

this is one of those rare abums that sounded beautiful, graceful and down right amazing on the first listen. Browne's luxurious, pure voice perfectly compliments the spine tingling melodies. This album will hit your heart like a sledgehammer and you'll come out the other end awe inspired and gobsmacked by 'late for the skys' sheer mastery in creating a gorgeous, stirring musical landscape.

This new release from Inside Recordings/Rhino/Warner Music Group of Jackson Browne’s 1974 album leaves a lot to be desired. While there can be no doubt about Browne’s songwriting skills and the quality of the songs and music on this particular album, the same can unfortunately not be said of the remastering. It is mediocre at best bordering on a regular disaster. The music and singing comes out flat, lifeless and unfocused at times. I wonder what kind of source material was used in the remastering process. One of the mastering engineers is Doug Sax (The Mastering Lab) who is highly revered within the music business, but boy, has he made a mess of this one!
Hang on to your old copy of this CD, or get a Japanese edition (2005 or later). Sonically a much better result, though I think there’s still room for improvement.

Often cited by critics as Jackson's best work (though I prefer the angst-filled "Pretender"), this is a wonderful album, which I have been listening to regularly since 1974, and never grown tired of. Never one to forget his past, Jackson's lyrics are deeply personal, but have universal significance. "For a Dancer" evokes precisely the mixed emotions of parenthood, while "Before the Deluge" is a masterpiece, in which Jackson delivers his best line - "Let the music keep our spirits high". He delivers on the promise too. Great stuff.

It's taken me a while to get round to Jackson Browne's music, but for the last week or so, I've listened to little else. This album is currently having its fourth play tonight and had three last night. He doesn't grab you by turning up the volume or tempo. The title track kicks off at a gentle pace, but, like the rest of the album, it is characterised by moving, poignant lyrics, subtle melodies and first class musicianship. What is usually overlooked is that Browne, far from being a 'professional songwriter' delivers his music with a rich vein of soul. It's why his original 'Take It Easy' on the previous album is so much more superior to The Eagles' cover. Tasteful fiddle flourishes and consummate harmonies add to the feast. 'Fountain Of Sorrow' has an irresistible,swooning melody. 'Farther On' and 'The Late Show' make four straight, great epics.

As on 'For Everyman' he breaks things up at this point with a pleasing, uptempo number, 'The Road And The Sky'. 'For A Dancer' is sublime, 'Walking Slow' has a more buoyant feel and 'Before The Deluge' is a case of saving the best for last. This one will stay with me.

Late for the Sky is one of those albums that always seems to have been around and showcases Jackson Browne, one of California's foremost singer songwriters at his very best.

All the songs on this album are supurb from the heartbreaking title track with its wonderful piano and guitar intro (guitar courtesy of the great David Lindley), through the beautiful Fountain of Sorrow and some of the finest singer/songwriting ever recorded in Farther On and The Late Show (both greatly under rated songs, again with some wonderful Lindley guitar work), the touching and emotional For a Dancer, right through to the last ringing note of optimism in Before the Deluge...'let the music keep our spirits high'.

If you don't already know this album and this artist, make their aquaintance right away!

Having not heard all of Jackson Browne's albums, and certainly not every album in the world, I can't say with complete conviction that this is the best album in the world, or even Browne's best album, but it is amazing! The only thing even slightly wrong with it is that I think the title track should be the final track of the album, rather than the first. 'Late for the Sky' is one of the most spine-tinglingly beautiful songs ever written, and would be more effective as an album closer. But meh, who am i to mess with Jackson's genius?
Every song on this album is amazing, whether it's the more traditional Jackson-style stuff of beautiful, soaring melodies and life-contemplating lyrics (see 'Late for the Sky' or 'Fountain of Sorrow'), or funk rock-ness ('Walking Slow' or 'The Road and the Sky'), not a single song hits a wrong note.
So few people have never heard of Jackson Browne, and in my opinion, he is the most underrated artist, um, ever. The only thing I can say about this album is buy it now, and echo the thoughts of the other reviewers. This is Jackson at his very best.

This is quite simply an awesome album that should be in everyone's collection. I have had it for nearly twenty years and still regularly play it and there is not a duff track on it. "For a Dancer" stands out for special mention. There are lyrics here that you will take away long after the music has stopped. I can only assume that "The lone voice of reason" had his soul removed at an early age !
