One of the great songwriters of our time just released an album yesterday. Jackson Browne’s new album is called Standing in the Breach. And for those of you that just started reading along and have read of my love for Black Flag, it is possible to love Black Flag and Jackson Browne. Browne is as fearless politically as any punk rock band, and he is a true poet of the complexity of the human heart. I haven’t heard the album enough to review it yet, but his last album, Time the Conqueror, was one of my favorites in recent years, and many classic songs like For Everyman and The Pretender are never far from my mind.
