The Pretender" was composed, according to Browne, in a number of locations; in Los Angeles, within a rented store-front in North Hollywood, and in a "tacky" hotel in Hawaii.

On The Pretender, Jackson Browne took a step back from the precipice so well defined on his first three albums, but doing so didn't seem to make him feel any better. Employing a real producer, Jon Landau, for the first time, Browne made what sounded like a real contemporary rock record, but this made his songs less effective; the ersatz Mexican arrangement of "Linda Paloma" and the bouncy second half of "Daddy's Tune," with its horn charts and guitar solo, undercut the lyrics

Album · 1976 · 8 Songs. The Pretender was another step in Jackson Browne’s transition from singer/songwriter to rocker. From the opening lines of The Fuse -his observation on the movement of time and the limits of life itself-on out, it’s clear that his wife’s suicide haunts this record. Browne worries for his son ( The Only Child") and wonders how he himself will soldier forth ( The Pretender ). In the end, his poetic lines beautify the truth, while the full band gives him a hopeful edge. The Pretender is a world of consequence-a heavy but deeply rewarding listen. The Pretender Jackson Browne.

Jackson Browne told Mojo magazine in 2015: "It's grappling with the question of whether the life you're living is the life you thought you were heading for. 'The Pretender' is an open question: Do you find life's best qualities by having children and a job, or in tearing those things down?" More songs from Jackson Browne.
