What do you think of the new album?
In general, I think it’s not bad, though I’m still kind of digesting it. Obviously, it’s very different from the Springsteen music with The E Street Band I dig the most.
I enjoyed this one – a little bit reminiscent of Devils and Dust era.
I had an interesting reaction to this album. I’m a huge fan and I’m used to instantly loving 90% of everything he does. My first listen through this album was a bit ho-hum and now I’ve been through it three or four times and I love it. It is definitely growing on me. No stadium rocking anthem type Songs but the album as a whole really works and if feels like A really honest portrait of where Bruce is these days.
I have only listened to it once myself and thought it was ok but it deserves many more listens- it didn’t immediately knock me off my feet but…we shall see.
