Jackson Browne: Lawyers In Love (Asylum)

Richard Cook, New Musical Express, 20 August 1983

JACKSON BROWNE is beginning to remind me of Jack Lemmon in The China Syndrome or Missing: a secure and successful man provoked into action traitorous to his own kind by the stink of uncaring greed in his nostrils. Lawyers in Love is the best record Browne has made. It starts to make his theatrical agony useful.
