I have a love of the desert particularly Arizona. Cant explain it just feel really at home there and if I could I would be there in a heartbeat but unfortunately its not easy to move to America so unless I win vast amounts of money its not happening
I started going when I was in my 20's with my first ever trip over the pond and I have been lucky enough to go several times over the years and have fallen in love with the desert
I haven't been listening to a lot of Bruce lately and then he goes and releases an album that sweeps me off my feet and goes straight to my heart
Last week was very stressful for various reasons and I couldn't wait for Friday to get my hands on it and soak it all in so I arrived home and put my headphones on and just let it wash over me. My goodness it absolutely blew me away. Brought back memories of desert road trips and my love of what I call my second home. By the end I was just sobbing and Moonlight Motel is an absolute gem
I love it all but by far Moonlight Motel is my favourite and I still cant get through it without crying its just so beautiful and for me Bruce at his very best.
My other favourites are Tucson Train, Western Stars for some reason love how he says the word 'charros' and the sweeping string section just blows me away, Chasing Wild Horses, Somewhere North Of Nashville, There Goes My Miracle is like my guilty pleasure song and I have to sway along to it!! and Hello Sunshine
So Mr Springsteen yet again you have drawn me in and made my heart sing and my level of adoration for this man just gets bigger and bigger
If only he would tour with this album that would be some night
