Think both are great to be honest.

Letter to you has really grown on me.

Yep, “Letter” has grown on me too.  It’s also better the louder you play it.  

In another post you mentioned wanting more pronounced sax on “Ghosts” and I have to agree.  Other than that, no complaints about “Ghosts” . . . I love it.

I like it. I hear it as a solid B level song, of which Bruce has a ton (with Born to Run, Thunder Road, etc..... being A level songs). I think, from hearing the first two songs, that it could make an A level album. His albums typically are greater than the sum of their parts so I’m looking forward hearing the whole product.

Wow. Just wow. Catchy rocking E Street instant classic. And that video is sensational. Live footage of The Castiles! I had no idea that this exists. Very very moving. All those band members they lost. All the ghosts. And I´m not sure, but I think there´s also a glimpse of Obie in the audience midways in the video. Can anyone confirm? Thank you for posting and dumping the video!

Looks like Obie to me, a nice touch

This is going to be a firm favourite in concert for years to come - and when(?) they do get out on the road (2022?) I wouldn't be shocked to see this open the show!?  I'm starting to feel like Nils wasn't exaggerating when he gushed about the forthcoming album a while back - I'm starting to think that it will be reminicent of BiUSA in terms of a collection of mainly upbeat riffing tunes! Yeah I had to pause (on second viewing) to ponder if that was Obie. 

Does anyone know if Obie was at some of the Fleet Center shows in Boston in 1999? On some of my footage - shot from behind the stage - there were two ladies, front row, one that could have been Obie and the other lady a blond haired friend - both in the right age band - both having a ball (but especially the one that could jave been Obie!?) - and seeing this snippet in this video makes me wonder if it could have been the same two ladies!?  Be intrigued if anyone out there on the lake has any knowledge of Obie / Boston (although even if not a Boston link nothing to say couldn't have been in town for the shows - hell I was from the UK!).

Love the archive footage. Some nice words in there, but  meh, it's Bruce by numbers. Two songs in and his writer's block is evident.

And he's definitely borrowed the riff from Steve Earle's I Ain't Satisfied.

... 1, 2, 3, 4  you're a spirit filled with light ;)

I have felt like this for his past few band albums. Western Stars was good. But his last decent album of band material was Magic IMO. 
 

His band work since has just felt generic. Nothing particularly bad...just not great either. 
 

im still looking forward to the rest of the album, but the first two releases don’t do much for me sadly.

I caved. Couldn't help myself. 

Your resolve didn't last long. ;) I was tempted but no - thinking of the joy that will be mine in a few weeks makes the waiting bearable.

Mind you ... if it should come on the radio I'll not be turning it off - I'll listen to a bit of it then turn it down.
