Jackson Browne: Standing In The Breach – Album Review

Louder Than War - Written by: Harry Mulligan

Jackson Browne’s new album is a masterclass in Americana says Harry Mulligan.

The new Jackson Browne album, Standing In The Breach, his fourteenth studio LP, is classically, monumentally and colossally Jackson Browne. Period! He cleverly holds a mirror up to a heavily dichotomous and divided America...

Jackson Browne, ‘Standing in the Breach’ – The Interview

Rockcellar Magazine - Written by: Jeff Slate

Standing in the Breach, the new Jackson Browne album out October 7th on Inside Recordings, is full of the sort of ruminations on love and loss and the state of the world that fans of his remarkable early 70s work will find familiar, with songs of longing about the space between us ultimately giving way to reflections on peace and hope.

'Like Opening A Book In The Middle': Jackson Browne Returns To An Old Song

by npr.org

Singer and songwriter Jackson Browne remembers the circumstances well: Just 18 years old, with $50 to his name and new to New York City, he "lucked into" a job playing for the singer Nico. Suddenly he was an observer to the world of The Velvet Underground, Andy Warhol and their coterie.

MusicRadar Jackson Browne talks guitars, production and new album Standing In The Breach

A sort of jammy, friendly kind of arrangement is at the heart of it.

You notice something very striking about Jackson Browne when listening to his new album, Standing In The Breach. Beyond its myriad, rich and sublime attributes – the dreamy bed of Byrds-like guitars on The Birds Of St. Marks, the spellbinding transposition to song of an unpublished Woody Guthrie letter, along with Browne's engrossing examinations of human bonds and social-political concerns – there's the singer's sweet and soulful voice: It's as pure and present as it's ever been, an instrument that is, it would seem, ageless.

Esquire Magazine Exclusive: Listen to Jackson Browne's Yeah Yeah

"It's like going to the pound and rescuing a dog," Jackson Browne says of his penchant for picking up cheap, unusual guitars on eBay. "You know, 'Let me make something out of this.'"

Whether it's his undying love for the guitar or his ability to wring a great song out of thin air, Browne seems as inspired as ever on Standing in the Breach, his new album due out October 7 on Inside Recordings, as well as on his current tour.

USAToday - Hear Jackson Browne's Standing in the Breach album

Standing in the Breach, the new Jackson Browne album premiering at USA TODAY (out Oct. 7), finds the singer/songwriter in a distressed but ultimately hopeful frame of mind.

Take the key line in If I Could Be Anywhere: "If I could be anywhere right now, I would want to be here." It's a lyric, and a delivery, worthy of Browne's most sentimental love songs, but it's not used that way. Except that it kind of is.

Review - Jackson Browne – Standing in the Breach

With Standing in the Breach, Jackson Browne makes a stunningly bold statement of purpose in a moment that might have been more reflective. After all, his very best music was the subject of a celebrated recent tribute album, something that might have left a lesser artist more humbled than ambitious. Not Browne. His first album of new songs since 2008, set for release on Browne’s own Inside Recordings in October, finds him working at peak creativity — as a writer, as a performer, as a bandmate.

The Birds of St. Marks - Rolling Stone Song Review

Jackson Browne

by Jon Dolan -- Rolling Stone

Browne wrote this ballad in 1967, when he was 18 and returning to California near the end of his period in New York playing guitar with Nico. He recorded a demo in 1970, but he’s finally officially releasing the song on his new LP. Against gentle Byrds-like guitars, he adds decades of wisdom to its prayerful weariness.

Review: Woody Guthrie at 100! Live at the Kennedy Center

The new CD/DVD set is entitled Woody Guthrie at 100! Live at the Kennedy Center, but in fact, Woody never made it past 55. This document of an altogether lively concert program from a wide assortment of admirers proves, however, that his music has not only lasted 'til 100, but will likely survive us all. This is a celebration, yes, but a celebration with a conscience. A strong thread of morality and social awareness ran through all of Guthrie's songs, as he believed music could make a difference in America.
