With further thought, "Sleepy Joe" greatly challenges this top 3. 

4 absolute gems on this album, and "Miracle" is growing on me. Christ why didn't alternate reality future me tell me this back in April?!?

"Western Stars" into "Sleepy Joe" is arguably the best transition on this album.

Agree. This is not lazy Sunday music

I have listened to the entire album start to finish a few times now. I really dig the music and melody of Western Stars. I’ve repeated it a few times on full album listens. I read somewhere a week or so ago on a review that the melody resembles “All that Heaven will allow” and I definitely hear it. Just so I’m clear, the “little blue pill” is for depression and not the other thing right?

no way.......sometimes the backing is lost when you play it at normal level but wow this is amazing when you listen to it full pelt.....i find parts really moving when they come in...that hit the heatstrings moment .......cannot fault any of it so far ..all have me totally immersed....and the lyrics are wonderful....

The title track is so stunning and if you watch the video the feeling goes deeper.

I've been listening to the title track all morning back and forth to school. The orchestral break started as I got on a long empty open road.

Really changes the song listening in a car.

Agree totally there..the Orcehstral arrangement is amazing......thats what i meant by  it just grabs you by the heartstrings when least expecting it.........

Man I would really like him to tour with this record. With David, Patti, the strings... I would prefer that over an ESB tour actually. 

 

 

I would as well.

Much more to say later, I think.  But for now, I'll say just this:  Bruce will be guilty of a major crime if he doesn't launch at least a short tour with a string section so we can here these tunes live.

Rearranging the songs for the ESB wouldn't do them justice.

Yep.  The power and majesty and beauty of this album lies in the string arrangements.  We'd have a totally different (and inferior) album without that.  It'd end up a bit like D and D.
