  1. Interesting trivia. I did not know that.
  2. Agreed. Closely followed by Check It Out. The mix on that is incredible, loud, sharp, and crystal clear.
  3. Incredible record. And a part of the greatest trilogy in recorded history.
  4. Great point about Bruce's struggle. Totally agree. After Bitusa, the struggle was over and so was his cutting edge songwriting
  5. Yep. It's a shame that it takes online rants from fans to achieve what was obvious from the start.
  6. Haha. I don't buy the ones I don't want. It's also a tad arrogant to call this version of The Promise as definitive. That is clearly a sales pitch ( although, who buys this stuff outside of the die hards?) In summary, I only buy what I think is good value ( probably three in ten). Overall, I think this so called archive series is pretty much redundant.
  7. He just messaged me, "Paul, I cannot take anymore of this 1978 nonsense. Bruce still thinks he's still a legend waiting to burst out and the followers are falling for it. Normally I would use my well thumbed lexicon and write a review with a packet of wet wipes. But, no more. I'm done. I'm off to wait for the Bleachers new LP.
  8. Absolutely. 1978 has been done to death. What is there to spend your money on that hasn't already been bought? Dylan's people do this stuff so much more efficiently
  9. 1978? That sound you can hear is not the scraping of the bottom of the barrel, it's the sound of the rocks and stones after they've scraped through the bottom of the barrel and have hit rocks and stones. Good grief, make it stop
  10. Aw, c'mon, nobody needs yet another '78 show. They HAVE to be done with that era.
  11. It's not a bad little pop song, but the album it comes from is dire.
  12. I don't fully understand why people outside of the US are buying tickets if they're not even allowed in the country.
  13. Another typically overwrought Killers song. Love the strings, though. Sounds like it's in a key too high for Bruce, but maybe that's the plan for more overwroughtness (and I know that's not a real word).
  14. Hmm. Doubt it. They have budgets and projections to protect.
