  1. My favorite Bruce album (As you can probably figure out). These days when I listen to it I mostly listen to my own triple album version.
  2. I am a "bit" biased, but...Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden.
  3. After first listen to Seventeen going under...Not as strong as Hypersonic missiles but not a disappointment anyway. The worst songs are better than the worst songs on Hypersonic missiles. I haven't listened to the bonus tracks yet either, so looking forward to that. There's still a lot of The War on drugs and Bruce influence, which I love. My favorite tracks on the album: Seventeen going under Getting started Last to make it home The dying light
  4. This made me wanna do some research. Asia throughout the years: 10 shows in Tokyo, Japan (5 in 1985, 1 in 1988 and 4 in 1997) 2 shows in Osaka, Japan (1985) 1 show in Kyoto, Japan (1985. The photo on the back of the The Essential Bruce Springsteen compilation and one of the photos in the Live 1975-1985 booklet are from the soundcheck for this show) 1 show in New Delhi, India (1988)
  5. Great song! Really enjoyed it. Bruce' octave harmony in the chorus is great.
  6. I'm pretty sure that all of these have moved me to tears at some point: 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy) Incident on 57th street Thunder road Independence day The River My hometown Tougher than the rest This hard land County fair
  7. I like it overall but I really dislike the graphic overlay they used for SPRINGSTEEN E STREET BAND.
  8. Learn the most simple chords and play along to music that you love. You will get far enough to be able to get further than that doing it that way.
  9. I just realized that that quote from the website kinda sounds like I'm slagging off stevie54uk for not really giving me a proper answer...Which was not my intention, haha.
  10. Is it a short version of "mind you"? Edit: It is! Found it: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mind you "often used in British English without you His advice wasn't very helpful. I'm not criticizing him, mind!"
  11. Side note, but I (as a non-native English speaker)'ve never understood that thing where one ends a sentence with the word mind as in the quote above. I'm sure it's gramatically correct but to me it just looks weird somehow. I think I get what it means in this context, but I don't understand why it's supposed to be the last word of the sentence and also without a comma. Can you/anyone explain?
  12. Your username being one of the best examples.
  13. Beautiful! I love this song. Heart on his sleeve as well as on his guitar.
  14. 9 times. Ullevi stadium, Gothenburg: 7 times (2 in 2008, 2 in 2012 and 3 in 2016) Friends arena, Stockholm: 2 times (2013)
  15. Peter Kvint is the producer and also co-writer of one of the best songs of all time:
  16. Hehe, nice that you noticed. I just googled "backwards b copy paste" and clicked on the first result.
  17. "We can hear Bruce and the Band playing here on the relatively overlooked New Year’s Eve 1975 release of 2015, and while that gig showcased a man and his band on the cusp of greatness, this night forty years later spotlights Bruce in the formative stages of an fascinating experimental period." I think you mean thirty years...?
  18. You mean the groove rather than the chord sequence, right?
