I know, it's great. Modern Madonna is not my cup of tea but with her new album and Prince and Springsteen's new albums, all we're missing is a new Michael Jackson album and we've got the whole set of massive 80s stars.

plus, i'm also quite excited for the new:


lana del rey
thom yorke
beck


woot!

new madonna isn't really my thing either, but every album she released
since ray of light has at least 1 or 2 really nice song, so i'm still looking
forward to listening to it. and it's great that these 'old folk' are still doing
their thing.

from the discription of it, i think this springsteen album might be a very
good one, too.

Same day as Madonna's new album ... 14th June will be a good day! biggrin

I use to hoover up anything and everything Bruce up to about 10 years ago, but it slipped. Felt to me that the last couple of albums got a bit samey. Perhaps its time for a revisit.

What a great cover. I would like this picture on my wall. If the music is as wild and free as the horse, then I look forward to hearing it.

I love it on first listen--I know exactly what he is singing about--that longing for in-between spaces traveling from one place to another and not worrying about the destination. If I would wish for anything, it would be that the song had more minimal instrumentation (no swelling violins, etc.) and that the outro was longer. Good song IMO and looking forward to the rest of the album. I also thought the video captured the feeling of travelling through those long stretches in the Southwest, which I remember as a kid at that time.

Lovely song, played it half a dozen times already. New Bruce is always a good thing.

i gotta get it of course, being a bruce nut. not expecting more than wrecking ball or some of the others but i hope he surprises me. Some have said he's not the same without the band but tunnel of love was brilliant and that was mainly solo, his other efforts? not always my favorite but always well worth listening to.

I've only heard it once, but I love the new song. Especially the use of strings- showing the Jimmy Webb / Glen Campbell influence that Bruce had mentioned

I like this.

However I was hoping for a Born in The USA box set this year.

Agreed. I like it when Bruce channels Roy.

I have high hopes for the new album.

i just got his broadway cd, was hoping it was a dvd because it didn't say one way or other on the cover.

The album seems to be shaping up quite nicely. New Springsteen is always a cause for celebration for me but from what I've heard of this album so far, it seems exactly like the kind of thing I'm looking for.

Also, Steven Van Zandt, of the E Street Band, just released a fantastic new album of his own last week called Summer Of Sorcery. Some great stuff on there too.

Just listening to the new Springsteen album now. I'm very impressed. Easily his best album in years.

Totally agree...back to the storytelling of characters adrift in lives swallowed up by the cinematic soundscapes of the American West..
