I agree. First thing I thought when I heard that track.

On a side note, anybody notice the video 4 RADIO NOWHERE has a better mix on the vocals than the album?

I've been listening to the album for a few days, and the only thing that comes off weak to me is Living In The Future. I think he was going for another "Hungry Heart" or something from The River era, and he almost pulled it off. But in the end it sounds like something from the Jonas Brothers.

Radio Nowhere is a great song. "Girls in Their Summer Clothes" is pure Beach Boys, minus all the vocal harmonies. Cool Song.

The hidden gem is the untitled track at the end of the disc. I'm guessing a tribute to the friend of his that recently passed away.

Livin in the Future seems more like "10th Ave Freeze Out" than "Hungry Heart", at least to me..

and Terry's Song is certainly one of the highlights of the album, great lyrics, good tune, Bruce's voice rough and clear

I'd love Livin' in the Future simply because it's like the first song in ten years that he didn't have that almost southern accent on. It's also a great track in its own right too. Double bonus.

Yay!




October 05, 2007

Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

Bruce Springsteen isn't always known for working quickly, but he just may have another new album already in the can on the heels of "Magic," released earlier this week via Columbia.

"There's another group of songs that exist that I think are great songs and should end up somewhere, but they just didn't quite fit with this group," says producer Brendan O'Brien, who helmed "Magic" as well as 2002's "The Rising" and 2005's "Devils & Dust."

O'Brien declined to comment on murmurs that the new album could be out as soon as next spring, saying only, "I'll defer to others on that one."

What's clear is that O'Brien has played a key role in one of the most prolific period of album releases in Springsteen's storied career. Before "The Rising," the Boss hadn't made a new studio album in seven years, and hadn't recorded with the E Street Band in nearly 20.

"He had produced his own music with other people for a long time," O'Brien says. "If he was meeting with me, it meant he maybe wanted to try something new and inspired. He needed somebody to help him get over the hump."


In contrast to the somber, Sept. 11, 2001-themed "The Rising," the folk-leaning solo album "Devils & Dust" and last year's all-traditional "The Seeger Sessions," "Magic" offers some of the most melodic songs Springsteen has written in years. The material is tailor-made for the onstage power of the E Street Band, which has just begun a North American tour.

O'Brien credits Springsteen with allowing him to participate in the vetting process, which in turn shaped the mostly high-energy vibe of the new album.
"It was clear he wanted that kind of input, and I let him know right away that that's something I like to do and am helpful with," he says. "On this one, we met at his place and he sat down and played me a bunch of songs. I would be looking at the lyric book while he was singing them. He'd finish, we'd talk, and we'd make notes."

Once ensconced at O'Brien's Atlanta studio, the producer set Springsteen up with a pared-down core band of drummer Max Weinberg, bassist Garry Tallent and pianist Roy Bittan to record basic tracks. Contributions from E Streeters like guitarist Steven Van Zandt, keyboardist Danny Federici and saxophonist Clarence Clemons were added later.

"As best I can tell, everyone else seems at peace with that," O'Brien says. "We'll bring Danny and Steve in, but by that point, I have a better idea as to what we need them for. It makes their overdubbing much more specific."

I read this yesterday. I'm kind of doubtful he'd release another album that just consists of what didn't make it onto Magic. Knowing Bruce, these songs will turn up as B-sides or, more likely, Tracks 2.

But I guess you never know...
