Rolling Stone has published their Best of 2008 list to determine the best albums of the year. Jackson Browne’s Time the Conqueror comes in at #22.
Time reconciles Browne’s two passions as a songwriter: current events and interior drama. “Off of Wonderland” is a fond reminiscence of the late Sixties, while explicit accusations like “The Drums of War” and “Where Were You?” are the sound of an older, wiser man with fighting spirit to spare.
Also on the list is Bob Dylan’s Tell Tale Signs – The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 (#2) and Randy Newman’s Harps and Angels (#16).
