allmusic doesn’t really like Time The Conqueror

allmusic.com has also posted their review for Jackson Browne’s new release Time The Conqueror, giving it 2 1/2 out of 5 stars. Despite having compliments for the title track and “Going Down to Cuba,” the reviewer had the following to say about the album:

Next time out, though, instead of worrying about his “enlightened” perspective, perhaps he should pay more attention to what made his earlier songs feel as if he actually owned one: craft. Most of these songs feel like quickly dashed off poems; it’s all “tell” with no “show,” because there isn’t anything in the music to effectively offer them to the listener as conversation; instead they are on display as mixed-message sermons.
