I have a GA ticket for the upcoming Sydney show for sale. PM me if interested. Selling at cost. I am not a scalper, but rather due to circumstances I can't attend the show.

I like the new album upon first listen.

The title track reminds me a TON of this (which is not a bad thing):

Basically this. I think that performance so brilliantly sums up everything that is good and right about the existence of the E Street Band.

Maybe. I can't see past the shittiness of the song and would rather listen to a tenth ave freeze out that does the same thing and doesn't suck.

Early vague first impression:

The second half is far superior.

I've listened twice. I like it quite a bit, although for some reason the version I have is missing both American Skin and Ghost of Tom Joad.

Is Ghost of Tom Joad a studio version of their duet, or is it the same live version that was available on iTunes from the previous tour?

While I like it, I'm having a hard time finding much to say about it. I like reviewing concerts better than albums.

I only listened to it via stream, but so far, High Hopes seems rather boring to me, nothing that really leaves an impression. Also, I'm really not a fan of this version of Tom Joad, it's totally ruining a brilliant song for me Maybe the album will connect with me more when I get to listen to it more times, but the last two albums were really disappointing to me, too, so I don't expect this one to grow much on me.

It's a studio version or their live arrangement.

In other words... If Bruce's original from the album of the same name had sexual relations with the Rage Against The Machine cover of the song, their love child would be this version.

Wrecking Ball was a disappointment for you?

As for Tom Joad, it's merely a different interpretation of the same song. It doesn't ruin anything. If you don't like it, the other version is still there.

If one doesn't like Hendrix's version of All Along The Watchtower, they can listen to Dylan's instead.

And they can both be brilliant in their own ways

Wrecking Ball was great. So was the live version of Tom Joad.

So there!
