BBC Review

Jackson Browne's second release of 2008 (following the second volume of his live back-catalogue reassessment, Solo Acoustic) takes him back into studio for his first set of new material in six years. The result is something ravishingly good - a timely, topical collection of songs fully alive to the here-and-now and packaged in impeccable musicianship.

Time The Conqueror finds Browne's de facto house band of the last decade and a half - all worth a name check: Kevin McCormick (bass); Mark Goldenberg (guitars); Mauricio Lewak (drums); Jeff Young (keyboards) - joined here by vocalists Chavonne Morris and Alethea Mills; all of whom will reach the UK in March next year as part of a worldwide tour.

Expectations are always high with any new offering from one of the consummate singer-songwriters of the last half-century and Browne, in his own understated but precision-tooled way doesn't fail to deliver here. Those coming to his particular brand of potently personal political commentary will find a happy absence of soap-box rhetoric and empty posturing in acutely observed songs such as the title track, the caustic attack on the West's military-industrial complex, The Drums of War, and the wistful interrogation of sexual politics, Live Nude Cabaret, complete with its subtly telling quoting of Let My People Go.

What is most admirable about Browne is his willingness to admit the complexity behind the seemingly obvious and straightforward, as in the wistful but clear-sighted nostalgia for the Sixties, Giving That Heaven Away, or in the sweetly knowing tale of lovelorn pursuit, Just Say Yeah. In all, Time The Conqueror proves to be a reflective album full of intelligent, self-interrogative stock-taking and reassessment. It has moments of haunting beauty, is never less than stimulating and, in its meticulously manicured way, is an altogether satisfying provocation to return to Browne's back catalogue. For that alone, it deserves recommendation. --Michael Quinn

I've been listening to Jackson Browne since the sixties (yes, I'm really old), and first encountered him with blonde chanteuse Nico. Since then, I've seen him in concert many times, and enjoyed his music constantly, so you could say I'm an admirer. I still like to think I have critical faculties, and I was a bit concerned when I read early reviews of this album. However, now having bought it and played it a few times, I needn't have worried. No-one can capture the mood of a time like Jackson Browne. He has a conscience, a soaring voice, and even with sparse arrangements, a rare power in his song writing. I hope we don't have to wait another six years for his next studio album. This is just great.

Having only recently really 'got into' Jackson Browne (ie the last 5 years) I may not have the same perspective of my fellow reviewer. However, from the opening 'title' track to the final piece, this album does not disappoint in what it offers. Sure its political in many places but thats part and parcel of what makes this artist so great. I also feel that there's nothing wrong with repeating a winning formula (If it ain't broke.....) and, in many ways, thats what this album does. Jackson Browne fans should not be disappointed in this release, and it serves as a good introduction to the artist's inimicable style for those who have still to discover this hugely underrated singer/songwriter. Time may well be a conqueror, but I hope that the years will still hold many more opportunities for offerings from this genius of a artist. Enjoy!

One of the problems of a long, hugely impressive, career in music is that of expectation; even more so if it is six years since your last album of original songs. Such situations often result in one of two consequences; either the new album is hailed as 'the best yet' before it has had time to be fully appreciated within the whole catalogue of the artist, or it is a disappointment failing to match earlier, greater work. There have been quite a few reviews of this album on the negative , 'he's past it' side. I don't concur with that. Indeed the only song that really disappoints is 'Going Down to Cuba', whilst others stand out, in particular the title track, 'Off of Wonderland', 'Drums of war', Live Nude Cabaret' and the final song 'Far From the arms of Hunger'; this latter has been described elsewhere as a 'plodding protest song' when, in my view, it is a song of beauty, pining for a time in which co-operation between us all might result in a world that can transcend its current problems set to a beautiful tune and production, a most suitable and lovely way to end the album. Far from losing his touch, I think Jackson Browne has written an album for our times and I can't wait to hear some of these songs live in April.

I approached this album with real trepidation, cringeing against disillusion and disappointment, having loved his earlier work so much, but after a couple of hearings it became very clear that I needn't have worried. It's very impressive. Perhaps more mellow and less energetic on the whole than his typical output, but there are no false notes here, no padding tracks, and he really can still sing. The moving political and human passion, the melodic and lyrical skill, are all fully intact. Among my favourites are Where Were You, a powerful and compelling indictment of the government's response to Hurricane Katrina, and Live Nude Cabaret, which takes Browne's insights into male-female relations onto a whole new level. Real genius and beauty still. I'm amazed, and can't wait to see him on tour.

They seems to be a lot of negative reviews about this new Jackson Browne album. but i strongly disagree. if people give it a chance and give it half a dozen spins like i have you will find that this is a fine crafted CD from a fine songwriter.if you like easy west coast usa music,this is for you.you won't regret it.

When i read a lot of average reviews for this album, I hesitated buying it.
Two weeks after the release date i bought it!!
TIME THE CONQUEROR has a superbly sparse production, has 10 excellent songs and as you'd expect, JB's Singing is still as fresh and youthful as ever.
So these people that have called these 10 new songs average or worst, have not given this album a good listen too, 'cos it is a grower.
The only negative thing i'd say about this CD is "Get rid of the goatee Jackson"

So it's not his best album, as some people have suggested. What are you expecting for goodness sake! If you want a superb JB album get his early stuff. Why do people try and judge his work on what has gone before? JB is not an underrated singer/writer as someone comments. He is extremely highly rated, and so he should be.

This work is well worth having in your collection. It's JB 'now' and there are some very good songs. It certainly is not overproduced. I give this album 3 stars purely on the basis of, if his earlier work is four/five star work, then this has to be a 3 star work. But who knows. In a few months time I may rate it higher. After all, music should be allowed to mature. So if you're undecided and you can't listen to samples of the tracks. Take the plunge, it certainly won't be a risk.
