  1. Yes, indeed, but it wasn't Letter To You that got me into Bruce twelve years ago at the age of 19. It was more like Darkness, WIESS, Born To Run and the live 1978 performances . If I hadn't gotten into Bruce then, as a "neutral" music listener, I would have probably played LTY out of interest, listened to it a couple of times and moved on to something else. A lot of people my age or younger would consider LTY "dad rock" now I reckon.
  2. Let's face it, the current world of music does not revolve around Bruce and few people would have even listened to the album outside of us fans, especially anyone under 30/40. The youth of today is on a completely different wavelength regarding music tastes and I for one am happy to see that. It amazes me how people on here seem so surprised by that though. Letter To You is a very enjoyable album but as an avid music listener, I don't see how it offered anything new or groundbreaking in any area? There were a lot of better albums released out there last year in my opinion.
  3. This whole thread has been quite a laugh. From the dramatic overreaction of some, to the high and mighty attitude of others, to the total ignorance or innocence of some posters regarding the dirty deeds Bruce has probably done already in his life, and finally the puns and word play. Can't stop laughing. Thank you all.

  5. Is The Wrestler E-Street though? I thought that was just Bruce solo. I would defo consider it top 5 though along with Last Carnival and Moonlight Motel.
  6. I am going against the grain here as I know it gets a lot of love on here but Ghosts is just a Bruce/E-Street by the numbers song in my opinion. The lyrics aren't that great and his voice really grates at the beginning of the song. I skip it every time now unfortunately. I'll See You In My Dreams is good but I actually think would have benefitted from being more stripped down as the lyrics are stronger but the melody and music is fairly run of the mill Bruce (all in my opinion of course). The other songs listed - LOHAD and MCOR - are much stronger lyrically and fresher sounding reun
  7. Been on repeat for the last half hour. The song could definitely benefit from extra 30s seconds of extended outro. Love it.
  8. That was so great!! Live version is better than the album version for sure.
  9. The 'orse jokes got boring a year ago to be honest.
  10. Western Stars by far and I really like Letter To You. It will be interesting to see how this vote will change in a year after giving LTY some time to digest.
  11. I still haven't figured out what the lyrics are about. What has the chorus got to do with what the rest of the song talks about? Any ideas?
  12. Agree with that. Long Walk Home was the stellar track among the three.
  13. Bruce does a great job here with Bono in this one. Love it:
