NEW ALBUM: Western Stars - June 14

Recommended Posts

My thoughts on the title track and the fact that we have a new Bruce album actually released

I thought the vinyl was supposed to be a darker blue

I got the limited edition light blue one from Badlands

Any deeper blue, and he'd be playing in his grave

I honestly can’t believe I’m holding a new Bruce Springsteen record in my hands 

That's because you're holding a cell phone, kid.

Today's the second day in a row I have trouble working because of Bruce. :)

 

And I feel a decade older since yesterday.

I've heard this album at least a dozen times now. Not once while the sun was up.

That suits me just fine.

The Mavericks could do a great cover of Sleepy Joe's Cafe.

Western Stars
Sundown
Moonlight Motel

Truth is, though, I don't think there's a weak track on the record. Before I heard the album, I had There Goes My Miracle as the weak link, but the album is a collection of vignettes and each song matters.

At a push I’d go:

Chasin Wild Horses, Stones and Moonlight Motel.

Love Hitch Hikin, Western Stars, Drive Fast and Sundown too. Even getting into The Wayfarer. The Miracle song even sounds good. Loved Sunshine from the off. 

At this stage I’m thinking it’s one of the deepest stacked he’s done in terms of quality songs.

I'm waiting for Saturday when there are no distractions whatsoever. I need to be alone with Bruce. Hang on, let me rephrase that. I need to be alone so I can listen to it for the first time in peace and quiet.
