The complex harmonies and lyrics of romantic regret on Twilight of the Renegades should turn these soaring ballads (from Jimmy Webb’s first album in nine years) into cabaret standards. None of these will upstage Webb landmarks like ”MacArthur Park” or ”Wichita Lineman,” and his husky voice is a serviceable but not ideal vehicle for his own challenging melodies. Still, Webb’s meticulous craftsmanship makes this an album of rare elegance, grace, lushness, and bittersweet maturity.
