Overview

Shortly before his death from prostate cancer in 2007, Dan Fogelberg completed his final studio album, locked it in a safe deposit box, and directed his wife to release it after his passing. Long considered one of the landmark artists of the '70s smooth singer/songwriter genre, the Illinois native released very little new material in his last decade, making the classic sound contained on Love in Time all the more welcome. Full of songs that could easily sit alongside his biggest hits such as "Longer Than," "Same Old Lang Syne," and "Leader of the Band," the album pairs Fogelberg's soothing voice and expert songcraft with just the right amount of subtle instrumental backing. "Come to the Harbor," with its jaunty strumming and electric sitar motif, sounds like Cat Stevens' "Peace Train" meets the Beatles' "Norwegian Wood," while "Sometimes a Song" is a quintessential Fogelberg love ballad, with a stick-in-the-head melody and spare, acoustic guitar-based accompaniment. A cover of Neil Young's "Birds" is dressed with gorgeous Eagles-esque vocal harmonies and serves as a poignant and chill-inducing closer, its final -- and in this case literal -- lyric, "it's over," seeming to echo long after the song ends. A gentle, finely crafted, and passionately performed album, Love in Time is a career coda both satisfying and bittersweet.

This is a wonderful and achingly beautiful CD from a master songwriter, singer, and musician. The melodies and harmonies are what we have come to know and love from Dan over the years, and he plays all the instruments himself, which is astounding. It is nice to finally have a recording of "The Nature of the Game." All the songs are special, but I think "The Colors of Eve" is my favorite. "Birds," by Neil Young, which was dedicated here to Jean, Dan's wife, will make you cry as his final good-bye. Much credit goes to Jean for the package and layout design and choice of photos and drawings. They are so beautiful. This is a must purchase that you will play over and over for years to come.
