Jackson Browne: Looking East

Richard Cook, MOJO, March 1996

CLOSE TO a quarter-century after his debut, Jackson Browne still can't settle down. His love life might not bother him the way it once did on the likes of Late For The Sky, but the newspapers, TV and streetlife in his beloved Los Angeles are all enough to rouse a muse that is one of rock's more graceful holdouts. For his second album of the '90s, Browne balances the politics of personal survival with a cautious ration of rage at what's goin' on.
