          Pure Legend. I went to see him in the 80s and was one of the best nights of my life.
          Some like to Clutch at Straws.

              his new album is incredible. I first got to know about him in the mid 90's when I bought a compilation album which featured Streets of Philadelphia. I was in awe. But it wasn't until 2002 and the brilliant The Rising album when I became a hardcore fan. I own all his albums he released since and some of his 80's masterpieces too.

              Bruce is one of my most played and beloved artists. A pure legend.

                My friend played 'Radio Nowhere' the other day in a band and I have been obsessed with it

                    he's a legend that often gets neglected.. when indeed he's still one of very few rock legends who still put out great albums.

                      Right, Bruce's first album came out in 1973 and yet he's still looking forward and continuing to put out art which he is passionate about. The main problem I have with so many "vet" artists is that they lose their passion and are content on being legends, but not Bruce. He had his big "let's do all the hits for the fans who wanted to hear them" tour in 2000, then moved on and never looked back. Granted, he will never top albums like Born To Run, Nebraska and Born In The U.S.A., but yet he still continues to stay relevant instead of trying to rely on his past reputation.

                            Great picture, he barely looks a day older than he did when he put out Born In The U.S.A.

                              I was thinking the same for the last couple of days. Read on some blog ages ago that he hits a gym regularly. I sent a link to many friends and they agreed among other things that he's still hot.

                                Nice to see an artist maturing from one album to another one. I always admired how many themes he could cover making the song appealing.

                                I liked all tracks. Currently I'm heavily into Death to My Hometown - an Irish drinking song if we can say so (IMO it took him a lot of guts), instant connection. Next comes Rocky Ground and This Depression (probably I'm in the corresponding mood). All songs are very good, the album must do well.

                                    I like the way the songs are produced.
                                    We Take Care Of Our Own reminds me of Born To Run, only it's a bit slower.
                                    Amazing song.

                                    LMAO at somebody saying he's "born to listen to this song [BTR] repeatedly".

                                      yep, with each listen I have a new "favorite" song. Right this minute it's Jack Of All Trades I'm really into. I love how the song is so peaceful and zen for four minutes and suddenly out of nowhere "if I had a gun I'd find the bastards and shoot 'em on site" Gotta love that Bruce never minces words, he's a true artist.

                                      One album I love of his, though I initially found pretentious and sluggish because it was all acoustic is Nebraska. For him to release that album in 1982 after The River and in the middle of the rise of MTV was very brave, and the stories he tells on that album (Highway Patrolman, Atlantic City, etc...) are some of his greatest. Sean Penn even adapted Highway Patrolman into a movie called The Indian Runner.

                                          I just listened to Streets Of Fire, woooooooooooooooow, such a great song! Go Bruce!

                                          I guess he's yet to become one of my favourite artists...

                                            Streets Of Fire is great... as is the whole Darkness On The Edge Of Town album. I think I might actually prefer that album to Born To Run.

                                              Bruce Springsteen Sings in Spanish, Brings Tour to Argentina: Watch

                                              Hear Springsteen's version of "Sólo le pido a Dios," a song he learned from late Argentine folk singer Mercedes Sosa.

                                              Bruce Springsteen has mustered his best Spanish in a tribute to the people of Argentina, posting an internet version of the song "I only ask of God" (Sólo le pido a Dios) that he said he learned from the late Argentine folk singer Mercedes Sosa.

                                              Exhausted at the end of a 3-hour, 20-minute marathon concert in Buenos Aires Saturday night, he told the crowd that he was too tired to sing it then without botching it, and invited fans to look on his website in the coming days.



                                              By Tuesday, he had made good on his promise, posting on BruceSpringsteen.net a soulful bilingual version of the Leon Gieco song that became an anthem for Argentines recovering from their 1976-1983 dictatorship.

                                              Introducing it in Spanish, he recalled his last visit to Argentina in 1988, as part of Amnesty International's "Human Rights Now!" tour.

                                              "My memories of that time are still very much alive. We came to Argentina when the country was going through a difficult time, and fighting for its future. For a foreigner, Argentina was very much alive, promising," he said. "So it's a huge inspiration for me to return here, and I want to leave this song to the people of Argentina."

                                              Springsteen's latest "Wrecking Ball" album is very much in keeping Latin American protest music, with songs such as "Shackled and Drawn" blaming bankers and corporate executives for ruining the U.S. economy, and he's been summoning kindred spirits during his tour of Chile, Argentina and Brazil.

                                              In Santiago, he eulogized folk singer Victor Jara, who was killed during the 1973 coup there, and sang Jara's "Manifesto." Springsteen next performs in Sao Paulo on Wednesday and Rio de Janeiro on Saturday.

                                                The new hard rock version of "The Ghost Of Tom Joad" with Tom Morello is brilliant, a definite highlight off the new album.
