  1. Ok, while it's obvious we can't all meet "In the Middle", can we all agree to meet at Mary's Place
  2. Exactly my point as well....where was the call for meeting in the middle when there were protests from the left (certainly not with the same issues we saw at the Capital), immediately after Trump's election. Do not want to turn this forum into politics, but the left calling for reconciliation, when for 4 years they advocated for running the guy out on the rails, comes across a bit shallow right now.
  3. Have a huge problem with Bruce's involvement in this project, even though I am not "on the right" for US politics. The country is deeply divided, and 1/2 the population believes what they believe. Having a figure that obviously supports the left (in Bruce) advocate for the re-uniting the country, so soon after the painful election--comes across as talking down to that portion of the population and "rubbing it in their faces". Not the ideal timing for this message/commercial, when feelings are still very raw. Will hurt Bruce's image, more than it helps--but when has the man ever cared abo
  4. Would be cool to have the box set, itself, fashioned as a cassette tape (in ode to how it was recorded, originally).
  5. My absolute favorite on the album. Love how he once again weaves in his religious influences to this rocker
  6. Have to say....I CANNOT STOP LISTENING TO THIS.... Just a straight forward rocker (which I've wanted from him and the band for some time now). Just raw E Street power and I adore the Catholic imagery (washed you in holy water/marked by Cain). Put on some headphones, crank this one and go for a run/walk. You will thank me later.....
  7. I want all future ESB albums recorded live like this one.....agree its the best sounding band album in years....
  8. More thoughts on Burnin' Train (my favorite on the album)... This last verse has a very "For You" feel to it...not to mention the call back to NYC Serenade with ...."sheets stained with sweat". From NYC Serenade.. "Janey sleeps in sheets damp with sweat..." On your bed of thorns, I brought you shining gifts Wiped the sweat from your brow and I touched your lips Sheets stained with sweat, outside the endless rain Darling I'm blessed in your blood and marked by Cain
  9. From "Land of a Thousand Guitars"' Now that's a shot..... The criminal clown has stolen the throne He steals what he can never own May the truth ring out from every small town bar We'll light up the house of a thousand guitars
  10. Favorite track for me, by far on this album. Appropriate emoji's added on my favorite lines. Some of the best lyrics he's written in years... "Burnin' Train" Zero's my number, time is my hunter I wanted you to heal me but instead you set me on fire We were out over the borders, I washed you in holy water We whispered our black prayers and rose up in flames Take me on your burnin' train Take me on your burnin' train White sun burnin', black wings beatin' I ran my fingers 'cross the hollow of your stomach as you lay breathing With our shared faith
  11. From Whitetown...."'neath the "L" she starts to wave..."
  12. It's been said many times in many threads here, but the guy looks amazing for his age. As lean as we've seen him in a few years, and looking ready to hit the road and tour. Reports of the ESB's demise is certainly pre-mature, in my opinion. The music on the 1st 2 singles is awesome!
  13. Like the fact that when he sings "I'm coming home" @ 1:15 there is a shot of 39 1/2 Institute street front porch--his 2nd home in Freehold and where he lived when he first picked up the guitar. Very well thought out, that one...
  14. That photo was taken from the road. He lives in a pretty remote area (Colts Neck, NJ), and you would have a hard time finding his farm from the main road. This was taken on the edge of his property from an old narrow lane that runs in front of it. BTW, the gate was open leading to the Studio (I kept thinking....well he would understand....like when he scaled the gates at Graceland)
  15. All I can say was that I found his farm and did a bit of stalking in late February when I was in Jersey. This is a picture of the studio on the farm. On that day there were many cars parked outside and you could clearly hear the music coming out.
