The Pretender (Asylum, 1976) is the fourth album by Jackson Browne and the second on the Rolling Stone list. It was nominated for a Grammy but did not win. It peaked at number 5 on Billboard’s album chart. The album was released after the suicide of Browne’s first wife, Phyllis Major, and one of the songs, “Here Come Those Tears Again,” was credited as co-written with her mother.
I just can’t get excited about Jackson Browne. I didn’t care for the other album on the list and I don’t care for this one. In fact, I barely remember listening to it.
