I can't stand the disconnect between artist and audience, the sound is shit.

It was a U2 stadium show that finally made me quit stadium shows.

I just picked up Human Touch.

Is it just me, or does that album kind of ... well ... suck?

I was really underwhelmed. And then the cheesy, 80s keyboards kicked in on "Real Man" and I was a little embarrassed for Bruce.

But then I listened to Nebraska, and was reassured of his awesomeness.

The 80s were unkind to many people.

I know, but dang! Human Touch came out in 1992.

I got Lucky Town a few months ago, and I liked that one a whole lot better.

Lucky Town as a whole is much better over Human Touch.

That being said, there are some classics on Human Touch as well, and he really should have just released a single album and ditched crap like "Real Man" and "Man's Job"...

If I Should Fall Behind, Beautiful Reward, I Wish I Were Blind, Living Proof
are about the only songs I can listen to,
it's a shame that he didn't just make one crappy record, but two of them released on the same day!
Especially since these were the non- E street albums, you think he would have tried a little harder or maybe he did, and this was the best he could do, I don't know.


I like his quote something like "I tried writing happy songs in the early 90s, and the audience didn't like it" , very true.

I'm sure his audience would love happy songs. But, you know, happy songs that didn't suck.

audience/stadium show = disconnect

I'd still rather have some live performance than none.

If you're down in front there's connection And i felt audience connection to Bruce/E ST at the Giants & Shea stadium shows of ? 2004? . When ever the last previous to this tour were. Thot the sound was good, too.

As for U2 - the last stadium show i saw was ZooTv (chose more or less not to see the Pop Tour because of their visual loo,k then).
was 7/8th up and 3/4's back and still loved it.

would i have loved to have been in the loweest ring and near the front, instead? of course i would have!
