Editorial Reviews

It hardly seems possible that, after 25 years of writing and recording hits and selling more than 15 million albums, Jackson Browne's never been anthologized. Includes two brand-new songs, plus 13 of his best hits, including Somebody's Baby; Doctor My Eyes; Running on Empty; The Pretender; Tender Is the Night , and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE NEXT SONG YOU HEAR ............. November 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
..... may not be the one you're expecting. While Browne has included "Doctor My Eyes", "The Pretender", and "Running On Empty" in this 15 - track retrospective, many of the songs we might have expected are conspicuous by their absence. Note: The album's title is "Best Of," not "Greatest Hits."
The artist has stated that this collection was put together in a way such that it would provide the listener an account, or a "record" of his state of mind during different stages of his long career. Browne has never been one to hide his emotions, and, by listening to this set chronologically, the listener is able to get a great feel for his growth as a songwriter, because of the songs that ARE included here, not in spite of the ones that aren't. A novel concept, in my opinion.
Personally speaking, I bought the disc for three reasons: First, it includes "Somebody's Baby", a track that had never been released on a Jackson Browne album. (Maybe on the soundtrack to "Fast Times At Ridgemont High," if there is such a thing). Second, "The Rebel Jesus" is a wonderful song featuring long - time Browne collaborator and friend David Lindley. I had heard a version of "Rebel" on a Chieftains Christmas album, with Jackson providing the vocals, and this reading, while quite different, is just as moving. Third, for the "bonus" track, the title cut. It's pretty much basic Browne fare, but hey, it's new Browne, and how often does that happen? Also, a "basic" Jackson Browne song is usually much better than a "great" song by anyone else in this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Through the Years with Jackson June 14, 1998
Format:Audio CD
This album takes fans on a journey through the years of Jackson Browne's evolution. Both in terms of music and life. It was great to hear his first hit, "Doctor My Eyes" sound better than I have heard it before with a cleaned up track. It was almost like hearing for the first time. A surprise to me was to find "Call It A Loan" on a greatest hits list. I read where Jackson considers this record a real "record" of HIS greatest hits and not the fans. A refreshing approach. A plus is also "Somebody's Baby", which to my knowledge, has not been included on any other CD. The two "new" tracks are something special. "The Rebel Jesus", featuring long time friend David Lindley on viola, has a hauntingly Irish feel with Jackson wearing his feelings right on his lyrical sleeve. "The Next Voice You Hear", a funky feeling chart featuring trumpter Jon Hassell soloing, has deeper meanings that we all can relate to and interpret to fit our own lives. A trademark of the deep and meaning lyrics Jackson Browne is known for. Both tracks are absolutely superb recordings and come through crystal clear.This album is a must for any long time Jackson fan or someone that wants to find what they have been missing for the last twenty five years.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Jackson Browne? Not Exactly. January 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Jackson Browne is one of those artists for whom it would be difficult of compile a single disc collection of his best material. He's had only a handful of obvious hits over the years and many of his best songs are lengthy album tracks. At a mere 15 tracks, two of them brand new for this collection, "Next Voice You Hear" is far too slight to be a good representation.
On the plus side, the CD includes "Somebody's Baby," a soundtrack song perviously unavailble on any Jackson Browne album. It also has all of his other best known songs, including his first hit, "Doctor My Eyes," "Running on Empty," and the 1983 MTV staple "Tender is the Night." On the downside, all of his albums, particularly his mid-70's masterpieces "For Everyman" and "Late For the Sky" are represented by only one or two songs. Browne classics like "Before the Deluge," "For Everyman," "Take it Easy," and the masterful live "Stay" are nowhere to be seen. Additionally, the later songs are not as strong as his 70s output, reflecting the decline is his career.
Overall, there is nothing wrong with the music that IS included here. There just isn't nearly enough of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered and largely *remixed*! April 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
No one seems to have mentioned this so far, but I think it's worth noting that the early selections on this disc were all superbly remixed for inclusion here, resulting in clearer, more polished, and more dynamic sound than is found on the original albums (most appreciably with the formerly muddy "Running On Empty"). The remixing is for some reason not mentioned in the CD booklet, so there's probably one deservedly steamed mix engineer out there somewhere.
The new mixes, the two new songs, the inclusion of the stray "Somebody's Baby," and the absence of certain other songs ("Take it Easy," "Before the Deluge," "Boulevard") do point to this being an album made for Browne devotees rather than casual fans. It is, after all, posited as a "best of" rather than a "greatest hits," and it very well may simply consist of material that Browne feels is his best--though if that's the case, I think it all the stranger that *The Next Voice You Hear* features nothing from Browne's brilliant and grossly underrated *World in Motion* (1989); "Lights and Virtues" is probably the best song he's ever written.
At any rate, this terrific Browne primer makes fine listening from start to finish, despite its unimaginative chronological sequencing. The booklet includes printed lyrics, something you don't find in many compilations. May Browne's insightful, wholehearted songwriting continue to inspire old fans and garner fresh interest.
