That's quite a compliment, and absolutely true

I can't even decide which songs I like, every CD of his is like that for me-sometimes even after a long time has passed. It can change when you see them live too.

The first album is great if you skip Mary Queen Of Arkansas and The Angel.

The second album is a classic, IMO.

My mom came home today and had this to say:

"I've got good news and bad news. The good news is that I bought 'Magic.' The bad news is that I'm going to the show in Philly tomorrow night and you're not."

She may not have used that exact phrasing, but it was similar and just as painful to hear.

^Wow, that's cold sorry

He's on 60 Minutes Sunday

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/...n3330463.shtml

(CBS) Rocker Bruce Springsteen answers critics who call his anti-war sentiments unpatriotic by saying the real sin against patriotism is saying nothing while your country is being harmed.

Springsteen discusses this and other topics, including why he's still writing songs and performing, in an interview with 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley this Sunday, Oct. 7, at 7:30 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. PT.


When reminded that his anti-war views, prominent on his new album, "Magic," will cause people to say he is unpatriotic -- as his critic have charged before -- Springsteen says "That's just the language of the day…the modus operandi for anybody who doesn't like somebody…criticizing where we've been or where we're going," he tells Pelley. "I believe every citizen has a stake in the course, direction of their country. That's why we vote…It's unpatriotic at any given moment to sit back and let things pass that are damaging to some place that you love so dearly and that has given me so much," says the 58-year-old musician.

In the interview, Springsteen points out the direction in which the U.S. is going, by his estimation. "I think we've seen things happen over the past six years that I don't think anybody ever thought they'd ever see in the United States," says Springsteen. "When people think of the Unites States' identity, they don't think of torture. They don't think of illegal wiretapping. They don't think of voter suppression," he tells Pelley. "They don't think of no habeas corpus," he says, referring to the people being held by the U.S. government in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"Those are things that are anti-American," Springsteen says. "There's been a whole series of things that…I never thought I'd ever see in America," he tells Pelley.

I withdraw my previous complaints about the title 'Magic', cause thus far that happens to be my favorite track. It seems like it could have fit in Devils & Dust, which is a good thing at least for me since its one of my fave Bruce records.
