    In his studio, or wherever he was when he played his songs, to his right (left of screen) there was a huge black and white poster of him in his hair metal days. Cool pic, actually, but I thought it was weird. But then, most rock stars are a bit vain.

    It’s his home studio in Colts Neck. The barn where they filmed Western Stars there as well.

  3. I went to see the Western Stars movie last night. What a unique way to present a new album. It was different than expected but in a very good way. I already really liked the songs but after the movie, I like them even more. Definitely added a different perspective to the album which was already musically lust with these orchestral arrangements but now to add the visual as well. I thought it was well put together and extremely tasteful

    I myself will be going to a listener's party tonight, to listen to it for the first time. It's a 2 hours trip but based on all your above reviews, worth it! I am so excited :D 

    when I aw the sale sticker on the cd in the picture, felt like Sherlock Homes cracking the case. Immediately called the shop and confirmed they were selling it and off I went

    It's clear to me that the real star on this album is the person (people?) who did the horn and string arrangements, because those scores are the glue that holds this album together.  I hear Morricone and John Barry all over this album.

    These are nowhere near the strongest songs Bruce has ever written but the sweeping, soaring, goose bump inducing arrangements succeed, with a certain sleight of hand, to make this a lovely listening experience.

    Nowhere near his best work, but very nice,

    Stones, Moonlight Motel and Tucson Train are pretty special.

    Just need the lyric sheets to hear what he's going on about.

    The songs are really expansive with the arrangements...sweeping and soaring good descriptions
