LiveDaily.com has posted a review of Jackson Browne’s New York show from this past weekend.
Browne and his crack backing band showcased a number of cuts from that new project, “Time The Conqueror,” along with a retrospect of material going all the way back to his debut in 1972. Some may complain that the set list, which Jackson told the crowd barely varies from night to night, is designed to showcase songs he and the band like to do, failed to provide enough classic material.
But it managed to touch on enough of his hits to please a more general audience, like the show opener “Boulevard,” as well as “Doctor My Eyes,” which flowed nicely into “My Imagination,” “The Pretender” and “Running on Empty.”
Browne also hit a few of those more sentimental buttons with a beautifully performed “Fountain of Sorrow,” and “Barricades of Heaven,” a song Browne said was “a song about trying to grow up. In my case, growing up twice.”
