Late for the Sky

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
On his third album, Jackson Browne returned to the themes of his debut record love, loss, identity, apocalypse and, amazingly, delved even deeper into them. "For a Dancer," a meditation on death like the first album's "Song for Adam," is a more eloquent eulogy; "Farther On" extends the "moving on" point of "Looking Into You"; "Before the Deluge" is a glimpse beyond the apocalypse evoked on "My Opening Farewell" and the second album's "For Everyman." If Browne had seemed to question everything in his first records, here he even questioned himself. "For me some words come easy, but I know that they don't mean that much," he sang on the opening track, "Late for the Sky," ...

"For a Dancer," a meditation on death like the first album's "Song for Adam," is a more eloquent eulogy; "Farther On" extends the "moving on" point of "Looking Into You"; "Before the Deluge" is a glimpse beyond the apocalypse evoked on "My Opening Farewell" and the second album's "For Everyman." If Browne had seemed to question everything in his first records, here he even questioned himself. "For me some words come easy, but I know that they don't mean that much," he sang on the opening track, "Late for the Sky," and added in "Farther On," "I'm not sure what I'm trying to say." Yet his seeming uncertainty and self-doubt reflected the size and complexity of the problems he was addressing in these songs, and few had ever explored such territory, much less mapped it so well. "The Late Show," the album's thematic center, doubted but ultimately affirmed the nature of relationships, while by the end, "After the Deluge," if "only a few survived," the human race continued nonetheless. It was a lot to put into a pop music album, but Browne stretched the limits of what could be found in what he called "the beauty in songs," just as Bob Dylan had a decade before.

    JACKSON BROWNE SANG TO MY SOUL

    AS A ANGST RIDDEN TEEN,JACKSON BROWNE AND SO MANY OTHERS SPOKE THE TRUTH THROUGH THEIR COLLECTIVE VOICES. THE MUSIC WAS A COMING HOME AND FALL INTO ONE'S ARMS EXPERIENCE.AS WE REALISED DYSFUNCTIONAL LIVING WOULD BECOME OUR MANTRAS, THE EVOCATIVE SOUNDS OF THE SOUL WAS MADE AS A VALIDATION BY JACKSON BROWNE'S WORDS AND MUSIC. WE WERE NOT THE ONLY ONES SUFFERING.HE WAS/IS A LEADER IN THE GROUP OF SINGERS THAT RESONATE THE ILL-LOGICAL FEELINGS WE COULD NEVER FIND ADULTS TO TRULY LISTEN AND EXPLAIN. STILL I GO TO HIS MUSIC AND I AM THAT TEEN AGAIN. LEARNING TO DRIVE AND BLARING OUT ALL THE SONGS ON THIS TAPE, NOW AS A CD NEVER 'OLD'. A CLASSIC AS SURELY AS JAMES TAYLOR'S 'SWEET BABY JAMES',AMONG OTHERS.B.DYLAN,JOAN BAEZ TO NAME A FEW.

    Gorgeous Album

    Another album from Jackson Browne that filled the FM airways throughout the seventies but these songs are best experienced as an album.

    AWESOME MUSIC

    What a great CD. I have worn mine out from listening to it so much. Songs are thought-provoking. Jackson Browne is awesome!
