Having listened extensively to this new album I have to strongly disagree with the previous two reviews. To my mind this is a sterling effort and a real return to the seminal sound of Late For The Sky and The Pretender with the political leanings of Lives In The Balance and World In Motion. Jackson along with likes of John Mellancamp has for a long time been a involved in political issues relating to poverty, racism and the global hold major corporations have over all aspects of society. This is reflected in his lyrical stance and is to be applauded. As for the music his voice is in fine form and the songs are both enlightening and uplifting in equal measure. Some fifty years on he is still making great albums and the voice has lost none of its magic.

I've given this a few listens now and for me I reckon it's his best since I'm Alive, although it doesn't reach the heights achieved on Late For The Sky.

Like another reviewer I've collected his work through the decades, and he has been a little patchy, however I consider this album a good return to form. If I Could Be Anywhere, Walls and Doors, Which Side, Standing In The Breach are all political to some degree. We do have lyrics to two songs provided by other writers, namely You Know The Night (Woody Guthrie) and Walls And Doors (Carlos Varela), both of which are excellent. The musicians he has assembled for this album are first class and supply excellent accompaniment to his unmistakable voice.

Packaging is a triple fold-out cardboard slip case with the CD in one side and a pouch to contain the 16 page booklet with lyrics.

Format: Audio CD
There are no surprises here. Typical of JB's work, it includes plenty of political and social comment, something he manages to achieve without being aggressive or obnoxious. He combines the knack of telling you what's wrong with the world whilst relaxing and soothing you at the same time. Many of the tracks are a bit over-long with too much time being taken up by uninspiring instrumental filler. His voice is still good but not quite as crisp as it was. I'm not quite sure about the two country style songs either. They don't seem to fit somehow. However, there is enough quality content here which has tempted me to play this quite a few times.

Despite the lack of surprises, I like this album. For the most part it has a hypnotic haunting quality which finds me pressing 'repeat' more so than I did with his previous effort, 'Time The Conquerer'. But it is probably for die hard fans only.

Have now given this record several plays, and you know what.... I like it. A definite improvement on 'Time The Conqueror'. A lot of people have said its not as good as his old stuff. But who's is ? Neil Young ....don't think so ! A lot of reviewers also see previous albums through rose tinted glasses, claiming its not a patch on ,say, 'Late For The Sky'. But if you go back and play that record.....'Farther On,The Late Show and The Road And The Sky' hardly great are they ? So almost half that album is taken up by mediocre songs. So lets celebrate this record for what it is, a collection of songs, some great,some good, some not so good. but a worthwhile record which is enjoyable to listen to from start to finish. Highlights include the Title Track, Birds Of St. Marks, Yeah Yeah, Leaving Winslow and Walls And Doors, which includes a guitar break reminiscent of the classic solo by David Lindley on the aforementioned Late For The Sky. In fact the instrumentation on the album which stretches some of the songs out is welcome in my view. Its just the modern listener who hasn't got the attention span to listen to these pieces. So overall I would recommend this album to anyone who enjoys good music presented by one of the greatest singer songwriters of all time (If not the greatest !) I have seen him many times live but living in Cornwall am unable to get to any of his next tour which comes nowhere near here.. no one does actually, but never mind.

like some of the previous reviews I know that its not going to be anything like his classical period of the mid 70's, but I do feel that its a patchy album; overall I do not think its as strong as Conqueror, but maybe I need to play it more, still I will see him in Gateshead tonight to hear him play the old classics.

After the relative disappointment of Time The Conqueror, which I felt lost itself too deeply in political introspection, Jackson Browne's new offering is an instantly likeable mixture of finely wrought lyrics and straightforward, catchy tunes. His concern for the environment is worn very prominently on his sleeve but, consummate lyricist that he is, the songs never become slaves to the message. He's also set himself free from many of the stalwarts of his touring band of the past decade or so. Marvellous players though they were, the lighter instrumentation and production on this collection invests the music with a welcome freshness.
There will be critics, of course, who bemoan a lack of cutting edge radicalism, or new direction. Ignore them. In a world where we are often simply clubbed around the ears with music that values innovation over everything else, "Standing In The Breach is a reminder that properly crafted songs, well played, is what music should be about. Someone once said that form is temporary and class is permanent. Well, buy this album, and listen to a class act on top form,
