Dallas Morning News likes Jackson Browne… sorta kinda

The Dallas Morning News posted a brief review of Jackson Browne’s Time The Conqueror. So far the consensus among reviewers is that Jackson’s newest album is a success, but this review joins the minority in saying otherwise, grading it a C.

Mr. Browne retains a voice that combines full earnestness with expressive tunefulness. And he retains insight into the shadowy workings of the human heart, as shown by the uneasy acknowledgement of mortality on the title track. However, he doesn’t go much further than the op-ed page with strangely passionless political commentaries such as “Where Were You” and “The Drums of War.” Nor does he put much musical drive or production bite into songs that desperately need both.
