Bruce Springsteen, Mike Appel, Jon Landau
I assumed Springsteen would be a part of it. Never heard of the other two.

The album is noted for its use of introductions to set the tone of each song (all of the record was composed on piano, not guitar), and for the Phil Spector-like "Wall of Sound" arrangements and production. Indeed, Springsteen has said that he wanted "Born to Run" to sound like "Roy Orbison singing Bob Dylan, produced by Spector."

I've always said that the sax does not belong in rock. Pink Floyd has proven it, Porcupine Tree has proven it, and indeed, Springsteen proves it.

I really liked this album.

Thanks Khan.

Meeting Across The River is still my favorite of the album. What ended up being your favorite, Axver and LemonMacPhisto?

Okay I know I said the sax was a brass instrument. Is it actually a woodwind because it uses a wooden reed?

Jungleland, with Thunder Road and Born to Run being a close second and third, respectively.

Ax, I really disagree about the sax on rock music. You're telling me that it doesn't work in Sheep, The Gunner's Dream, Us and Them, or Money? It's one of my favorite instruments, so I'm naturally biased.

Yeah, Screws, it's a woodwind.

I don't recall any song in particular standing out strongly to me. In the majority of cases, I don't tend to develop clear favourite tracks until the third listen.

Axver, how do you come up with names for characters in your writing. I'm terrible at it. Any tips?

It is the best of the woodwinds too.

I ask the same question to you, LemonMacPhisto.

I usually take the first name of someone I know and the last name of a character from a film.

I think the best name I've used has been Charlie Parker.

Andre Calrissian.



Seriously though that's a good suggestion.
