  1. Exactly. It's so incongruent that he is such an amazing insightful songwriter about life and love, yet a braindead follower of the leftist hive when it comes to political views.
  2. Selling a lot of 22 of these from my personal collection. $75 ($5 shipping in US). Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you a PM. Thanks!
  3. I feel the same. Always a little disappointed to hear these new full e-street band songs. The bombast big sound had its time in the 70’s-90’s and Bruce was the Boss. But these new songs, and a lot from everything beyond The Rising feels like generic Bruce. Absolutely loved Western Stars and it’s hard to believe this vanilla retro sound is what is following it.
  4. Sorry y’all. This one’s a no for me. Lucky Town outtake. D+
  5. This thread headline just made me throw up in my mouth
  6. Very cool. That’s definitely the sound. Such a nuanced thing that totally makes the sedated mood of that song!
  7. After listening to this song today for probably the millionth time in my life, I discovered an interesting musical element in it that feels like the key to giving the song it’s mournful quality. It’s a sound that run beneath the majority of the song quietly and makes a sound like “oooo” at the end of each beat. It is there quietly for most of the song - except for in parts like “she won’t take the train" the quiet parts, and at the very end piece. You can hear the sound I'm talking about most clearly right after he says Billy at the start of the song. Once you hear it try listening f
  8. I just don't get it. These guys birthed these songs and played them hundreds of times flawlessly and consistently. Their livelihood was these songs. A few years go by and they forget their parts? Makes no sense.
  9. This is the most awkward thing I've seen. So many questions... Why was Bruce going through the motions to pull the whole band back together at this point in time when there would be no on stage reunion for another four long years? For everyone except Bruce, this was their livelihood. Why tease all them with this "rehearsal"? Why is everybody acting like they've forgotten how to play these songs. I play cover songs and can do them in my sleep after many years of playing. How could the band "forget" how these songs go? You can just feel how awkward everyone feels wondering if this is
  10. Great points. I would add however that some of the songs share that point of view but then point in the direction of the character rising above it i.e. Badlands, Racing in the streets etc.
  11. Yes! That’s the secret to growing old gracefully.That’s the secret to growing old gracefully
  12. This is just such an amazing line about the feel of growing older. Also picturing it within the message of One Step Up signifying a stale relationship. Brilliant.
  13. Can someone post a link to BITUSA starting without them? Have to hear this!
  14. I have an extra ticket. "Face value". Let me know if you want it.
