That's one I mildly enjoy.

The fucking Wrestler though! I have a hard time listening to that song without tearing up a bit. That rarely happens for me... until I cry myself to sleep every night, but I digress.

My Lucky Day is my favorite track from that album, then the two you mention and the rest is sort of meh for me.

Even the title of the album sounds more like a John (Cougar?) Mellencamp album than anything else.

Working on a Dream in Ouuuuuuuuuuuuuur Country?

I honestly think that song makes Mary Queen of Arkansas sound like Born To Run in comparison.

WOAD is pretty easily the worst Springsteen album I've heard. There's My Lucky Day, The Wrestler...and uh...

And "The Wrestler" is more of a bonus track than anything else.

The Wrestler and A Night With The Jersey Devil deserved full inclusion on the album. It's not as if WOAD had some consistent lyrical theme that those tracks would have diluted. Pair Jersey Devil up with Good Eye, and place The Wrestler before The Last Carnival. Wouldn't make for a great album, but it's a solid improvement IMO.

Any title that's reminiscent of a Rick Springfield song is a set up for some fail.

I'm going to use this thread to air a grievance:

"Glory Days" sucks ass.

Oh, no. I don't want to ruin the illusion. I only listened to WOAD because, hell, all the cool kids were talking about it.

Yes. Yes, it does. I was really bummed it was part of the Superbowl set, but I suppose it was an obvious choice.

Heh. It's okay to pretend it doesn't exist. But WOAD, for the record, is not nearly as bad as The Album That Does Not Really Exist.
