HOLY SHIT WHAT A GREAT SONG!!! JAKE SOLOS MID-SONG AND CLOSES!! UNCLE WOULD BE PROUD!!

This could be the most "E Street" sound we’ve heard in a while: I actually feel some similarities here with those last three songs from "Magic".

 

Awesome!

Absolutely. Was my favourite song on first listen to the album

Then 5 or 6 other songs started to feel just as good after 3rd/4th listens. Didn't care much for track 1 at first but it is essential now. It's a great album.

I agree, some of the reviews I heard earlier turned me off but when I listened to it Tuesday, I knew it was solid.

Listened to it a second time. Nope, it doesn't do it for me. It's okay but not much more. The verse melody and chords share a harmonic nature with the Tunnel of love album, but it's far from my favorite kind of TOL-like melody. I'm sure the lyrics are good or even great but when the melody doesn't grab me the lyrics can't make it more than an okay song.

For me too...as I posted in the general LTY topic [before reading this]; so maybe that says something.

Or maybe it is just the personal opinion of only 3 fans.:)

Yes, the song on the album that sounds most like 'classic ESB'.

Not my favorite track, but it’s growing fast. For sure, it must have been the title track.

There is already a Jerry Lee Lewis album with the title Last Man Standing. And on that album Jerry Lee and Bruce sing together on a cover of Pink Cadillac. So this could be a reason this was probably never an option for title song (but just my speculation of course).

Yes, most of all I think Bruce didn’t want to have a “Last Man Standing” tour, as he didn’t go for “Last to die” as a title-track in 2007.

I feel like this song and next Two songs should be listened together as a long song .They're kind of similar melody 

Thank you!  I thought it was just me. 
Last Man Standing and The Power Of Prayer sound pretty much the same to me.
