    Default Bruce Springsteen

    Just made the record that the Arcade Fire probably should have. Magic + "No Cars Go" = album of the year consideration. Saying.

    Neon Bible is a much better album than Magic is. Magic is just too overproduced, but my favorite Springsteen album is probably Nebraska soooo.

    I can not bring myself to like the Boss - maybe that's why I'm not that fond of Keep the Car Running. Sounds like I'm On Fire sped up a bit.

    really?

    I liked "Radio Nowhere" til someone pointed out to me it has the same tune as "867-5309".

    The rest just seemed recycled. and that wouldn't necessarily be all that bad, but, it is like he's recycling his lightest pop fluff.

    I admit I only listened to the album once ("Radio Nowhere" 3 times) and then put it aside. maybe later. but it's no "Rising" that's for sure.

    for song similarities you might just want to listen to Tom petty's Mary Jane's Last Dance and then Red Hot Chili Peppers Dani California
    Their exactly the same
    Also, ironically,
    Asobi Seksu's Strawberries sounds very similar to Presidents of the United State's Peaches,
    although they are both amazing songs

    I love you. I didn't grow up in New Jersey, but I really hate both those fags. Max Weinberg should just stick the Max Weinberg 7.

    Tony Soprano is so much less entertaining in person. When there's 50,000 of him. And they're all over your beaches being fat and hairy and double-parking.

    Fucking Rolling Stone and their bullshit ratings. They give Dylan and Springsteen five stars on their recycled albums made in their twilight years, but like fuck if they give anybody even remotely recent anything better than four stars, and even that's rare.

    30 years ago it might've been different, but Springsteen can suck it, Arcade Fire own 2007.

    I was listening to E Street Radio on Sirius last night on the way home from work and they were playing the end of the 1975 Hammersmith Odeon show.It was remarkably romantic and thrilling.His stuff in the Seventies really was much more direct and alive than the Arcade Fire could ever hope to be.
    They also played "Girls In Their Summer Clothes" off of Magic,and it sounded very derivative of The Who's "The Kids Are Alright".

    springsteen has been better as a live performer. for me he is my dylan. his lyrics are amazing, touching and powerful. honestly ive never been too fond of his studio recordings, but i do have tons of live stuff and love all of it. bruce and prince are both 2 of the best live artists you will ever see. period. he is getting older so he doesnt strut it like before but he goes out there with so much passion, he at the least deserves respect. so show it!

    A letter come blowin' in
    On an ill wind
    Somethin' 'bout me and you
    Never seein' one another again
    And what I knew had come
    Stars struck deaf and dumb
    Like when we kissed
    That taste of blood on your tongue

    Don't worry, darlin'
    No baby, don't you fret
    We're livin' in the future
    And none of this has happened yet

    Our family's friends the Carletons really liked the boss. I remember when We Are the World came out and me and my sister laughed so hard at his part because it sounded so bad and the daughter Carleton got really mad at us because we didn't get it because he sounded like that because he was trying so hard.
