  1. (reaches in his pocket for two cents) I would like to chime in with my bewilderment over the "mixed" reaction this absolute masterpiece of a release is getting here. I digress. Western Stars, Letter To You and No Nukes. I could almost skip my anti-depressants this stuff is so good. I guess I'm fortunate the Nukes experience is new to me. My goodness some of the folk here act like Morrissey fans :lol:

    Last great album was Darkness and there is zero chance of coming near that he just hasn't got that inspiration any more. Last great tour was the last one every tour is great with reservations sure. But I will never go to stadium show again either. The best album for me would be another tracks with stuff he wrote 40 years ago when his writing was at its best.

    Yeaaaaah, no. "Tunnel Of Love" and "Western Stars" are great. While nothing can top Darkness he's made two great albums since then. Heck, "Born In The USA" is also great.

    Without getting political, I find his appearance and performance offensive to the tragedy of 9-11. Why does he feel the need to bookend the 20 year anniversary of this event? Yes, The Rising was interesting for what it was, maybe even healing for many people, and I get that. I loved it. But this appearance is unnecessary and self-serving in my opinion.


    What the f....are you serious? Don't you think perhaps they asked him to do it? I'd bet on that and he had to oblige. Bruce is the right choice. Nobody connects with people like Mr. Springsteen

    I really like this song and a great choice for the occasion delivered with respect and dignity. However I fear that the upcoming tour, if it ever happens, is going to show us a very different Bruce.

    Well it's glaringly obvious he's going to have to sing most older songs differently. It should come as no surprise. He's in his 70s and has spent decades pushing his voice to it's limit (and we love him for it). I can't fathom many more straight rock albums from the man if he can't do the songs effectively on tour. Like Dylan he will adapt and find a new tone or style I believe.

    Letter To You, the song, reached #1 on the US Adult Alternative chart for 2 weeks. Ghosts reached #12 and is still in the Top 20.

    A new single has been released on March 3rd, I'll See You In My Dreams. (Much better choice than the previous single Power Of Prayer...)

    Neither this nor "Prayer" are good single releases. "If I Was The Priest" is an attention getter.

  6. I find it beyond weird to the point of bizarre Bruce received no nominations, etc. I mean, I haven't watched the show since I was 18 but I always check nominees/winners. The Strokes won Best Rock Album. I haven't heard it but I am skeptical it could lay a finger on "Letter To You".

  7. Why is this major news? Mainstream newsworthy? If true it's not his best moment and he shouldn't have done it it's wrong but it's annoying that conservative shitbags are enjoying this so much. I've probably driven legally drunk/buzzed but not impaired. I didn't get pulled over. I won't do it again. I reckon 8 out of 10 people who are driving intoxicated at least once in their lives don't get pulled over. I'd like to know his blood alcohol level because it's 0.9 or something get real.
