Well, gave Born to Run a spin last night, and it's not what I was expecting... a lot more, a LOT more sax than I thought, his vocals are a bit sort of folky/country-y at times... I had the idea that the whole album would be full of Born to Run style hooks throughout.

that said, I still enjoyed it, and I've only given it one listen, trust me there'll be plenty more. I think the only thing that's kiiiind of putting me off at the moment is his vocals... he has a very, very deep voice, to the point where it's kind of hard to decipher what the hell he's actually singing.

Predictably, Born to Run is my fave so far.

I was a little put off by the album at first myself, but She's the One really sucked me in, and then after a few more plays I couldn't stop listening to it

I can only remember hearing Born to Run a few times before this, and couldn't recall it off the top of my head. I recognised it straight away, but now I've got it, man, it's amazing.

So I'm assuming live, this bloke is alright. Any particularly smashing live DVDs?

Born in the USA next, then I'm stuck.

This saxophonist is reeeeeally good.

Live In New York City. You will be BLOWN AWAY by the version of "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" from that DVD!

Cheers mate! I'll be sure to check them out. Also just discovered Dad owns Born USA on vinyl, so I might not have to fork out just yet. shweet

I think Backstreets might be my favorite Springsteen track other than Jungleland.

You know, I like Asbury Park more than WIESS...I think a couple of the longer tracks on Wild *cough WBilly* really put me off of listening to that album as much as the others.


I went to Best Buy today and had Tracks in my hands, but then I just couldn't justify spending that much money when I'm about to make a cross country drive so I put it back

I still don't own either of the box sets... on me, I know.

I put that money towards GA tickets to see him instead. What was I thinking, right?

You could always by it used ... I think the latest low seller price on Amazon is $17 or $18.

Darkness on the Edge of Town should be able to get you fully and properly un-stuck.
