  1. Has everyone lost the ability, and the will, to actually read??!! In a "virtual press conference" including folks from Australia, literally on the other side of the world from the US, Bruce "JOKED" about leaving for Australia if Trump wins. What part of "JOKED" escaped you?

  3. I posted my review on the other thread before I saw this thread. I listened to the album a couple of times today. Overall it's a lovely record. Very commercial, lots of hooks and melodies. Not a loud record, and Bob Clearmountain's mix allows the whole band to be heard. They're not trying to reinvent the wheel here. It is indeed an E Street Band record in sound and texture, with echoes of The River album, Magic and even Human Touch. For anyone interested, he reveals itself thus, POWER OF PRAYER - Very poppy. Gorgeous sax and piano outro. Reminds me of Save My Love. I'LL S

  4. Hi - It's Steve - I run the GreasyLake twitter account. I just want to apologise to the community for getting into a Twitter spat last night with Amy, which some of you may have seen. Things - as they can do on Twitter - get a little heated, and I regret that. I've said sorry to Amy publicly and privately, and I've deleted two tweets that I'm not proud of... I'm also sorry if I embarrassed the Greasy Lake community, and I've apologised this morning to Karsten. Twitter on most days is lovely, but on some days it can get a little toxic. I should have known better, but I hope we ca

  6. Mom passed away earlier this morning. We all had the opportunity to tell her how much we all love her, even if she was asleep when she died, and we all felt that she could feel our presence. The hospital staff later dressed her up in one of her favorite dresses, we had some soft music playing and we could be there to see her one last time. After all these years, and especially the last weeks of pain and sorrow, her face looked free from tension and anxiety and it even looked as she smiled when she were laying there. We all thought it looked as she were asleep and dreaming of something bea

  7. A little bit more than three years ago, my mother was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Despite the shock and grief, the doctor emphasized that mom would probably live for several more years and hopefully be able to have a reasonably dignified life, at least for a couple of years. I had just been admitted to a university in another city, and even though it was with mixed feelings, I decided to move. The first two years went by, and when I went home and visited my parents for summer, Christmas and other holidays things were still almost as the should've been. Things started to change l

  9. Jungleland For those who use the above, can you make sure that you show your appreciation via a thanks comment when you download a torrent please? The folk there do a fantastic job of providing us with great boots, & spend considerable time & effort in getting the best out of them, & very graciously share their efforts with the wider community. If it wasn't for them, our collections would be far inferior to what we have enjoyed over the years.

  10. I haven’t seen the video but I love the song - it’s just a fun song, what’s not to love? The way I see it is we are lucky to be getting anything from Bruce. Tom Petty died suddenly aged 5 years younger than Bruce is now. Can’t we just enjoy the fact that he’s happy, working on new music (with the band!), working on a tonne of old music (going by the Rolling Stone piece), and that he’s happy and well? The man is 71 - the time for creating ‘masterpiece’ or ‘ground breaking’ albums is behind him. He’s been there and done that and has nothing to prove, so bring on the guitar rock wh

  11. Granted the songs are no WIESS, BTR or Darkness caliber...nothing will ever come close to those again. It's not possible. Bruce raised the bar all the way up with those releases. But these songs are rockin' Bruce and E Street and at age 71 I'm so happy we can still get that from him. Loving these songs and I'm so looking forward to hearing the rest!

  12. I am so sorry for you loss @High Lonesome And this is my first post and I read this forum almost everyday since the last year. And this thread push me to try to interact with all of you guys. It's quite weird to introduce myself here but there is a reason. I am Vincent, 28 years old and living in France (close to Paris). I am a big fan of Bruce Springsteen. Saw him in 2013 in Stade de France (Paris), 2016 in Munchen and the second night in Paris (full album River in live... What a blast ! And this is my fav record of Bruce). Last year my dad past away in december the 18th. He

  13. I wont listen to to a single track. The sound is probably inferior and compressed. One of the reasons I hate the 21st century is the rise of instant gratification. Whatever happened to the growing anticipation & excitement of waiting for a new release from your favorite artist? I remember waiting in line on a cold, damp night for the midnight release of "Live 75-85". There were over three hundred people there & we had the time of our lives. There's no more of that now. People have become spoiled, impatient instant gratification junkies. Wait until the fucking record comes out for

  16. The video is about Pennsylvania, not Missouri or Illinois. It's a well done political ad, using a remarkably emotional song. That those here who support Trump dont like it , is so unsurprising. Can you name a anti Trump Ad you do like. It uses actual residents which is always most effective in an a political ad. It's not all about Covid btw. Is he to blame for Covid, no. Is he on the top of the list for response and handling, you bet. He still is.still downplaying now, like he said in his taped interview. The ad is effective since people are talking about.

  17. From Stefano (hrubesh) guys, who I got it from!! I hope you can appreciate it! Here is the compilation There's No Place Left To Hide - Born To Run Compilation Nevinsrip (Juergensen) in FLAC https://mega.nz/folder/kQx10K5A#ORsNRYmLdtWyEJBnyD0BXA I totally agree with Mick, a little more appreciation and support would be very "normal" And not to take everything for granted. If they didn't such a great job with all the DATs, Tape Transfers, Vinyls and Silvers, we wouldn't have that much! Except what's already excist and you can download everywhere Also here! Enjo

  18. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. It's a song full of those complex (and yet perfectly simple) contradictions that Bruce so brilliantly draws together in his music. The melody, the band, is a starburst of joy; the lyrics are defiantly full of life and love, yet are leavened with grief and loss. Life and death in the same breath, the same musical phrase. The ghosts are gone. The ghosts live on. As with the best rock songs, it's a reminder of our mortality. Not simply in the Grim Reaper, 'everyone dies' sense, but a reminder that the flip side is also true - 'everyone lives'. So we live

  20. I go back to my favourite line ever on GL. When Magic leaked two weeks before release there was a similar thread to this, and someone asked 'how are you having a discussion about the new album - it's not out yet!' To which some wag (who were you??) replied - 'We're livin in the Future, none of this has happened yet'

  21. I was a bit shocked tbh given this is the Lake's official Twitter account. To tell a member of the bands wife to F-you was not what I would have expected to read, no matter what the circumstances. Twitter can be emotive at times but is this how our site should officially respond in such a public forum? What happens in here is between ourselves but Twitter is a very public place. Perhaps Bruce may have read this - I'm sure he will hug Amy before he hugs us. This site has been long in the making, building a strong reputation in Brucieworld and is one of the main places us fans can interact

  23. Played the song four times back to back on big headphones tonight whilst watching the video. So powerful watching 50 years of his career like that. Brilliant song, and fittingly great video. Feel so proud and privileged to have seen as many of his concerts as I have. There will never be another Bruce Springsteen.

  27. That was a pretty fantastic film. When Landau started to lose it during the playback of SYIM Dreams, I went with him. A very powerful moment. George Theiss is prominent throughout this film. His passing clearly has impacted Bruce a great deal.

  28. Wow just finished watching the film. What a treat to see the E Street Band in the studio in such an intimate setting. When they were listening back to I'll See You In My Dreams and it was visible that Landau was struggling to hold back tears I started to lose it myself. Pretty powerful stuff. We're so lucky to have Bruce still putting out incredibly inspired work well into the 5th decade of his career.

  30. Absolutely - and the "full album" has been shared before this morning, but it does seem as if the dam has broken and it is flooding the neighborhoods As a newsworthy item, this thread is fine, and if people want it they can find it - (please be safe and don't download without virus checks) But we (obviously) will not allow any linking to places where it can be downloaded until there is an official way to get this music And please no posts saying "PLEASE SEND IT TO ME" either, if you want it, it is easily found Thanks everyone, for understanding that

  31. The power of the American dream has been abandoned, he says. That was where I stopped reading. It’s such nonsense. The citizens roll through everyday in pursuit of their dream. The president doesn’t create it or stop it from occurring. He’s just throwing out party line hyperbolic rhetoric and it’s embarrassing to read from such an insightful, thoughtful man who has written countless songs about the gray areas of life. In politics now he is black or white and that doesn’t work for me.

  33. Ah shit... We mostly disagreed about all things political, in the dirty world of the Fight Club. Time to remember that we are all flesh and blood, and we all stop someday. Condolences all around. I choose to remember the fleeting virtual moments over the years when BBB and I agreed, and for all those times he made me laugh when we disagreed. Shit fuck. So sorry.

  36. How a song can take on completely different meanings just by coincidence. In July, we had to let go of our beloved Susannah (the cat in my profile pic) after almost 22 years. It broke our hearts. We immediatly threw away everything, the litter box, food, toys... Just so we wouldn't be reminded of her all the time. While cleaning the house yesterday, with "Ghosts" blasting through the speakers, I found a bag of cat treats all the way in the back of a drawer. Just at that moment Bruce sings about the spurs "clicking down the hall but never arrive". That reminded me of Susannah and how she w

  37. Thank you. My mom got cancer a little more than three years ago, and we knew from the start that she had at most five years left. Earlier this year we started to realize that she most likely wouldn't make it to the next year. And this summer her disease got a lot worse, and the latest month (especially the last two weeks), was basically only a long wait for her to be released from her pain. And Wednesday, September 23, this week she passed away. Bruce Springsteen's music have been so important to me this time, and so many of his songs have felt very meaningful. And the release

  42. You know what would put an end to these leak's? Release the album when it's finished, no announcement! Only hardcore Bruce's fans will be buying this, so no need for a big time promotion. Album will be #1 for a week or two then off the charts, like the last few!
