I finally got around to downloading Radio Nowhere from iTunes.

It was nice to hear Bruce in full rocker mode again. I was a little disappointed in the sound mix. Don't get me wrong, I love loud guitars, but it seemed to overpower the vocal.

I kind of hope the rest of the album has a few songs with a bit more depth. I loved The Rising because it had a great mix of both fun rockers and more introspective stuff.

The Rising's best songs were Into the Fire, Empty Sky, The Rising, and My City of Ruins. I liked most of it, but those were my four favorite.

You're Missing is one of the best songs he's done in the last 10 years.

Even though it came out in the summer of 2002, I couldn't bring myself to listen to The Rising until after the 9/11 anniversary. I was teaching a night class that fall, and I used to play it on the way home, sometimes weeping because of what the songs meant. I think "Into the Fire" is one of the most heroic rock songs ever written, and "My City of Ruins" applies not only to New York but New Orleans.

Straight-forward video. Still good, though.

If anyone wants to hear 30 second snippets of each song on the album, go here:

Radio Nowhere will be first. Just let it continue to play - if you click on any of the songs themselves it doesn't seem to do anything.

It's a nice video, and beautiful photography. I hope this album does well for him!

My favorites from The Rising are the title track (which I didn't even like much when it first came out as the first single, but which I now think is one of Bruce's most inspiring songs ever), Worlds Apart, My City of Ruins and Lonesome Day.
