Note to Bruce inc/ Launder police/ JLM

I may have temporarily have had to borrow a copy of the latest album while my personal financial circumstances were a little tight i do not steel from Bruce and please note i have now paid for the album

I notice you are still preferring those ghastly cardboard sleeves 

For dinosaurs like me i would really rather have a more robust case

Card sleeves are a total pain but I guess it's all part of the ditch the plastic thing.

For all the advances in things that have been made since cds became the thing nearly 40 years ago I find it annoying that they haven't come up with a decently robust case.

LTY v WS isn't much of a contest nor 2 albums that can really be compared.

LTY v HH would be the comparison as both are a collection of songs.

The nearest comparison to WS would probably be Nebraska.

Very intetesting comparison with Nebraska  

But in Nebraska the characters are younger and have time to make good

Didn't get to vote. I choose "Western Stars". A Masterpiece. "Letter To You" is great- top 10 Bruce but not a masterpiece.

I don't know about that.  Most of the Nebraska characters are in deep doo-doo. They ain't making good. WS characters are just worn out.

Im.almost tempted to listen to WS tonight 

But i may break my no winter rule (uts only May) and go with the Joad album instead 

I really hope we get lots of LTY on the next tour

Pretty soon we will be comparing LTY with the new album. California sound? So is Bruce going to sound like the Beach Boys? Surely if this is another WS type record, it will be a masterpiece. :blink:

Springsteen doing Rhinestone Cowboy and Pet Sounds covers in 3 years of each other :ph34r:. I can tolerate a few on WS: SJC, WS, HS, HH, but not a not cover please....

Western Stars-Nebraska would be like the Frazier-Foreman fight with Western Stars playing the role of Frazier. If that doesn’t make sense, it’s worth YouTubing it.

Don’t apologize at all. I’ve got enough Bruce to carry me through the rest of my life, regardless of what else he puts out there.

I’d be fine with another banjo-infused album. Love the banjo. 
And I understand the alcohol-induced album buying. Somewhere around here I still have a Letters to Cleo album bought in a drunken fury to hear that, “Here and Now” song. It’s a damn catchy tune!

Does that mean you're a SSB fan?

I know this question was meant for Jertucky, but I'll you my feelings on SSB.

I enjoy that music somewhat, I have Live in Dublin but that's all I need.

Absolutely! I love that sound. I just wish he made an album of his own songs with that style.
