Jackson Browne?s masterpiece
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a truly great, amazingly underappreciated album. Jackson's lyrics may be too political for some tastes, but they are so heartfelt and beautifully stated that they always, always remain poetry. There is not a single dull song on this album, musically or poetically. The best songs are timeless: "World in motion", "How long", "I am a patriot" (what a statement of faith, not in those who run the country, but in the people of the country, and in the importance of sticking to one's beliefs). Then there is "My personal revenge", a deeply moving anthem of forgiveness (with lovely, haunting music to back it up) and two beautiful ballads, "Anything can happen" and "Lights and virtues" (the latter probably my favorite JB song, and one of my favorite songs ever). These are not good songs, or very good songs, they are classics, every one of them, and this album is brilliant from start to finish. Thanks, JB."
In the top three JB offerings...

"I like this collection. It is political, like "Lives in the Balance" (another of my favorites.) There are three songs here that can rank among his best: "Anything Can Happen",
"When the Stone Begins to Turn" and "I Am a Patriot." I play these over and over when I am in a certain mood. The other CD I would rank in his top three? "For Everyman", his second record.Browne is personal, and political, and "personally political" but he knows how to rock, and how to arrange, and how to write, and how to hook the listener. If you like JB but have not heard this effort, take a chance on it. I don't think you'll be disappointed."
Haunting and deep. Strikes balance between love/politics.

"World in Motion is not Jacksons best-that honor is reserved for Looking East, but this is one of the most haunting albums I have ever heard. Anything Can Happen is clearly the best song on the album and it takes the listener away every time it plays. How Long is the best politically tinged track and the insturmentation is outstanding. Enough of the Night excells on the backround harmony that repeats 4 times, as well as the abrupt but well executed shifts from fast/hard to slow/soft. Critics hit this album for being angry and too political. It's not. Not by a long shot. In fact, if every musical album was like this we might have some brains and awareness among our young people today. (I'm 20 years old, by the way). If you only buy one album by Jackson, dont buy this one-buy his Best of cd. But if you buy two, go for World in Motion-you cant go wrong."
