Except for Boston and Chicago (off by one day) the rumors were right on.

A Saturday for Boston...

thank you, I needed this to see if it's worth buying.

I don't like folk music aside from Bob Dylan, so I don't know why I like all of the songs I've heard so far.

Maybe it has something to do with the fact that it's The Boss and everything?

you win.

It's like I want to vomit after listening to the fiddles and banjos and crap, but then Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce starts singing, and I'm hooked.

It's the weirdest thing.

I'm actually npt going to listen to it, which I'm surprised at myself, but maybe it's because I love how how Bruce can keep things on the downlow....I mean it's not like he's been blabbing about this record for years or months even, so it's just a nice bonus to get an album so quickly after it's been talked about ..unlike other bands coughcoughu2coughcoughradioheadcough


but from what I've heard/seen on John Henry and Pay Me My MOney Down I was quite pleasantly surprised, he really makes it work ! Otherwise I don't imagine I could listen to all those fiddles and banjos on their own...it sounds like honkytonk people wearing overalls, straw hats and missing teeth

I've downloaded the album and have listened to it multiple times in its entirety, and I can honestly say now that I adore this album.

This coming from someone who, upon first hearing the news about what this disc would be, was a bit taken aback. I was really hoping he'd follow up last year's solo effort with a new E Street record. I even felt a twinge of disappointment.

But then I read more about it, and my curiousity was peaked. Then I saw the John Henry video, and I became very intrigued. So without hesitation I downloaded it as soon as it leaked, and I'm very glad I did (still buying it, though - supposedly the liner notes are excellent).

The whole thing is like one big party. It has a live-in-the-studio feel to it, complete with Bruce barking out orders and key changes. It's very refreshing to listen to, and it's a much more lively record than Devils & Dust. The band sounds loose, like they are having a great time, and I love how the background vocals are truly in the "background", like they placed a microphone in the middle of the room and all the players are just shouting out along with Bruce. I can't wait to hear this stuff live.

So this sounds nothing like anything Bruce has done before. Much different from his solo efforts, and worlds apart from E Street. But if you can get passed that and see this album for what it really is, you'll enjoy one of his best recordings ever.

i'm pretty sure i heard "pay me my money down" on the radio this morning. i was at the dining hall and couldn't really hear too well, but it definitely sounded like that song.


i liked the rumored may 26th boston date better oh well.

Haven't listened to it as much as you, but it sounds great.

Live it's going to be awesome, I can just tell.
