Jackson Browne has had a long and varied career, from his days as a one-man song factory for people like The Byrds, Nico and unsung folk hero Steve Noonan to his groundbreaking 1970's folk-rock albums and his more politically-oriented later material. Throughout, his work has been marked by intelligent, often poetic lyrics and sophisticated-but-accessible arrangements. THE NEXT VOICE YOU HEAR provides a handy overview of the seminal singer-songwriter's work. It includes pop hits like "Doctor My Eyes" and "Running On Empty" as well as lesser known songs like "Sky Blue And Black". As an added incentive to Browne fans, there are two new tracks. On one of them, the collection's title track, Browne enters into new territory by exploring ambient textures and trip-hop rhythms.
