Yeah, Nebraska is considered his true solo masterpiece.

Seeing it once was definitely enough. I was very surprised it returned to the Magic tour, and I wish it hadn't.

This.

Paradise is one of the worst mood-killers since Revolution #9. Other than that, The Rising is fantastic.

I like Let's Be Friends.

There, I said it.

Mood-killer? There's a number of downers on that album, all equally beautiful, so I don't see how Paradise is anymore of a mood-killer than Empty Sky or You're Missing.

It's about the tour setlist, don't click if you don't want to know about it:

Two out of three, huh? Now could you ask for Hold Me or Levitate please?

Born To Run
Darkness
Born in the USA
Asbury Park
The Wild, The Innocent...

And I think that's in order. The first three definitely are, with BTR bouncing in and out of the top slot on my favorite albums of all-time list. It makes me want to live a better life.

Levitate and Hold Me are two of my favourite Springsteen albums too.

It's the placement. After Empty Sky or You're Missing, it wouldn't be a thing, but following the title track, it's a different matter.

I don't know, I liked its placement before My City of Ruins and didn't mind it coming out of The Rising. I thought it worked.

Ah, you don't have to agree. Just trying to explain myself here.

I'm not sure if I'm pleasantly surprised or just surprised that Tunnel Of Love is ahead of Nebraska right now. I know Nebraska is fairly divisive, but I expected a little more support than this. Oh well, that won't prevent Atlantic City from kicking ass.

The obvious improvement would have been Human Touch and Lucky Town combined into one album. It really would have been excellent if done that way.
