Background: Lives in the Balance was the eighth studio album by Jackson Browne, released in 1986. The album reached #23 on the U.S. album charts and was certified gold, helped by the single “In the Shape of a Heart.”
Usually among the most introspective of songwriters, Jackson Browne cast his gaze on the world outside on Lives in the Balance and did not like what he saw. .. But, from its hard rock sound and forceful singing to its frankly agit-prop lyrics, “For America” remained primarily a political statement, and if Browne sounded more involved in his music than he had in some time, the specificity of its approach inevitably limited its appeal and its long-term significance.
