Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 20 May 2007
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.
