Worlds Apart is the best track on The Rising - discuss.....

Recommended Posts

Controversial? I’m not sure why. Always felt it was the best track on the album, but I’ve met many who hate it.

Would love him to play it more.

A very good-maybe not great-song.

At the time something new and different, not a typisch Bruce Springsteen song.

But not the greatest song on The Rising, on an album full of very good and great songs.

One of my favourite Bruce tracks since the turn of the century,but My City of Ruins is the best song on The Rising.

LOVE ‘Paradise’.  It’s hauntingly beautiful.

Unfortunately there is one awful track on the album. Let’s Be Friends.  Atrocious.

Rest of the album is fantastic.

Love this song.  I too think it’s great.  The best? Hard to say, as there are so many great songs on this album.

I could take or leave it, but I would never call it ‘atrocious.’

Worlds Apart was always the highlight for me during the shows of that great tour. 

Don't think he's played it since then.

I think it's one of the best songs on the album, and I also think it has Bruce's best electric guitar playing / solos since...in a long time. It also has - for me - the only classic, memorable Bruce line on the album (I find the album to be sub-standard lyrically). If The Rising were a 5-song EP, WA is one of the songs that should have been on

Agreed. Helsinki ‘03 version is the best, for me.

I agree completely, except re: the lyrics on the album.

Let's Be Friends is a great little pop tune.

I really like the song but it feels a little undercooked to me... It starts off amazing and then kind of morphs into a little bit of a standard Bruce rocker and it's a bit muddy. I think he should have played a bit more on the Eastern musicians or musical motifs throughout the song and make it truly awesome. 

Still... I do really like it, but it could have been up there with his best.

:lol: You're not Dan, are you? The one who Promise and Eileen seem to know? The one who used to run a fanzine years ago?

I don't want this to get complicated :lol:

Ah, right.

The other Dan also has the same moniker.  This new Dan must have the moniker configured differently.

As you were, nothing to see here.

I tried to 'search' for the other Dan's screen name.  Couldn't find him.

Must. Get. Out. More.

Stealing my name? I’m going to have to take legal action!!!
