5.0 out of 5 stars For Everyman April 2, 2014
By J. Moss
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1975, I was 15 years old, and a friend turned me on to Jackson Browne's first three albums. They soon became the very poetic fabric of my life, full of observations of live and love, and then came 'The Pretender' and 'Running on Empty' and 'Hold On' and, if he had just stopped there, he would have recorded a lifetime's worth of memorable music. But he's given us even more since then, and the world is a better place with Jackson Browne in it.

Having said that, I was both excited and apprehensive when I heard about this release, because many tribute albums fall short of being memorable. But this collection is absolutely stellar. 5-star performances from a great assortment of artists, and it achieves the rare feat of making a record produced by over 20 different people (as each song was produced by a different producer) sound cohesive, consistent, and beautiful.

The interpretations of Jackson's songs here are mostly wonderful, sometimes revealing, and worthy of repeated listening. The producers of this collection have picked an excellent assortment of his songs, concentrating on songs from his first 8 years of recording. Most of these versions are both beautiful and passionate, while at the same time making you want to revisit Jackson's original versions.

Joan Osborne's "Late for the Sky", Keb' Mo''s "Rock Me on the Water", Lyle Lovett's "Our Lady of the Well" and "Rosie", Ben Harper's "Jamaica Say You Will", "Eliza Gilkyson's "Before the Deluge" and Jimmy LaFave's "For Everyman" are just some of the standout cuts for me, but this is a solid 2 discs of wonderful music. Whether you grew up with Jackson or are new to his music, you'll appreciate this collection of his songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy tribute album April 1, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This project does a good job of gathering a lot of musicians who inhabit the same "soundscape" as Jackson Browne and letting them each put their own spin on one of his songs. Some of the musicians stick closely to Browne's original arrangements, while others do something unexpected. Altogether, though, it is still pleasing to folks who would have been fans of Jackson Browne in the first place. Unlike the recent Peter Gabriel tribute ("And I'll Scratch Yours"...which would make most PG fan cringe in horror), this set will provide an enjoyable listen for long-time fans of JB.

Joan Osborne's "Late for the Sky" and Bruce Hornsby's "I'm Alive" put new spins on these songs. You'd expect Hornsby to relish the opportunity to cover the gorgeous piano from JB's original, but instead, Hornsby puts a new acoustic spin on the song. It's interesting...not better than the original, but a nice new way to envision the song. Osborne engages in a similar move, also turning a piano-based song into one featuring her signature plaintive guitar sound.

Other highlights include Don Henley's "These Days," Bonnie Raitt's "Everywhere I Go," the Indigo Girls' "Fountains of Sorrow," Marc Cohn's "Too Many Angels," and Bruce Springsteen's "Linda Paloma." None of their interpretations are earth-shattering. Rather, these musicians seem to also betray their admiration for Jackson Browne as they provide enjoyable performances that show respect to Browne's original compositions.

While some reviewers may be a bit disappointed that only a few of the performers sought to create surprising approaches to the songs, most Jackson Browne fans will enjoy a tribute album featuring songs they know and love, but can still sing along to while enjoying new voices singing Browne's beautiful, poetic lines.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Song Playing Right in My Ear April 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tribute CDs are a very difficult balancing act to pull off well. If they're too different from the original, people get cranky; if they're too similar, people say, "Why not just listen to the original artist?" "Looking Into You" is a strong tribute set and highlights how brilliant of a songwriter Jackson Browne is. There are no tracks on the set that are clinkers. That said, I do have some particular gems to which I gravitate. On the first disc, Don Henley & Blind Pilot lead off with a stunning rendition of the brilliant song "These Days." It is different enough from Browne's own gorgeous version that Henley and Blind Pilot's Israel Nebeker's vocals totally fill the emotional space of longing and regret, "These days I seem to think a lot about the things I forgot to do for you & all the times I had the chance to." It's a GREAT opening track. Indigo Girls do a blockbuster reading on Browne's gorgeous "Fountain of Sorrow." I totally connect with Amy Ray's vocals and the gorgeous harmonies with Emily Sailers, "What I was seeing wasn't what was happening at all." While I do have a CD by the band Venice, I don't wait with breathless anticipation over their each and every release, but their touring work with Jackson Browne gives them a real feel for what has always one of my favorite songs by Browne. "For A Dancer" reflects brilliant depth of feeling in dealing with the issue of loss, "I don't know what happens when people die; Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try; It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear that I can't sing, but I can't help listening.
