  1. You mean when BLM protestors were attacked by cops with riot gear, tear gas, and rubber bullets?
  2. But that’s just centrism and that’s neither productive or what’s needed right now. And equating the extremes of the left and right is extremely irresponsible and dangerous. I have friends who are far left and believe me, they can be annoying sometimes but they are not violent, they only want justice for the poor and disenfranchised people who are too often forgotten even by some of the most liberal politicians.
  3. I thought the message of the commercial was pretty tone-deaf. If there’s anything we should learn from the last few years, it’s that there is no middle ground. Why should I want to unify with horrible people who are racist/capitalist/anti-semitic/homophobic/transphobic/etc.?
  4. He also produced and co-wrote St. Vincent's Masseduction, probably one of my favorite albums of recent years. He's probably best known for being the lead guitarist and songwriter for the band fun with Nate Ruess.
  5. I have officially licensed masks from The Stones and The Who. I'm surprised nothing of the sort has come from Bruce yet!
  6. A little disappointed there was no download code with the vinyl. I guess the site never said it came with one but it's usually a given for new vinyl releases. I always like to have a digital copy along with a physical (but without having to pay twice).
  7. Haven’t listened to it yet but Conan’s interviews are always so much fun. https://www.earwolf.com/episode/bruce-springsteen/
  8. Or they could have included the original demos of If I Was the Priest, Song for Orpans, and Janey Needs a Shooter.
  9. Loved the post-credits stinger with Bruce singing "Baby I"!
  10. Wondering if "I'll See You In My Dreams" is the old standard, memorably performed by the English singer Joe Brown on ukulele to close the Concert for George Harrison.
  11. I think it works for what it is. I don't think Bruce ever intended it to be just a concert tour souvenir, he probably wanted it to be a unique entry in his catalog that could stand as a true album along his studio works, and in many ways it succeeds as that. It's both a showcase for the newly reformed E Street Band and a way to show that they were not coming back as an oldies act, that they were still fresh and experimental. I think this shows in the track selection. You've got the two new tracks which would prove to be more than worthy additions to the band's act, some deep cuts like "My Love Will Not Let You Down", "Don't Look Back", and "Lost in the Flood", renditions of "Atlantic City", "Mansion on the Hill", "The River", "Youngstown", "Born in the USA", and "If I Should Fall Behind" that are vastly different from the album versions and give the spotlight to the band members, not to mention the epic extended "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out". I think at the time, it was an important album in Bruce's discography. That importance might have dwindled a little bit now that countless of archival live albums have been released (including one of the MSG shows recorded for the album) but in the context of the time, I appreciate its existence.
  12. It's worth noting that the performances of "The River" and "Kitty's Back" with Vini Lopez and David Sancious have never been released in full (though portions of "Kitty's Back" were intercut with the acceptance speech in the HBO telecast). Great performances by a rare lineup!
