The thought of an album of new songs from Bruce Springsteen & The E street band is a great feeling. An anticipation which doesn’t come along too often but always special when it does. Bring it on!

Slagging off an album before it's been officially announced. Is this a new record for the earliest ever?   

Letter To You is Bruce Springsteen’s new studio album with the E Street Band, and is a rock album fueled by the band's heart-stopping, house-rocking signature sound. Recorded at his home studio in New

Heard it last night. A leaked copy to the my mate who a CD stacker at ASDA . We listened down the Dog and Gun while socially distancing. Some initial thoughts..

1) Hung Out To Dry - a rock anthem for the generations. Subtle notes of We Take Care Of Our Own.  Powerful.

2) The House Is On Fire - a cross between Harry's Place and Mary's place. It works.

3) Achilles Heel - long guitar intro to start and a lovely short number. Candys room if you like. Noted Stevies backing vocals on chorus "it hurts, it's hurts real bad". 

4) The Storm - moody Bruce. Dark slow. 

5) As Good As Gold - think tomorrow never knows 

6) Tooth and Nail - gritty and rocky. Nice track.

7) Between Heaven and Earth- n9ce melody bopper. Some sample from a song in the 80s 

8) Nancy's Bar - another short rocker. Bruce letching over some bartender who he can see her thong while he sips a beer. Powerful .

9) The Mask Unveiled - brilliant. Big and bold discussion about swinging.

10) Parasite - like his first two album.  Lyrics over music.

11) Noah - great track... rocker. Lyrics all about lockdown and the world economy. 

7/10

So does that mean that the "last album" part of the blurb is true as well? Surely that can't be the case, if Bruce has been "prolific" in the studio lately.

Then again, there is a certain symmetry with his first album having been a postcard of sorts, and his last album being a letter. Plus, something about winter as a metaphor comes creeping in...

I didn’t realise until tonight that the E street band have never been named on the cover of a Bruce studio album. Only live releases and that 2009 greatest hits album. 

That was the problem that stopped them being inducted in the R&R Hall of Fame along with Bruce.

Yes, he insisted on being signed as a solo artist so he had complete control.
