The Ties That Band?


This is tough. I've been voting for Devil's Arcade, and am tempted to do so again. I could also be persuaded to go for Cadillac Ranch, Tunnel of Love, or Reason to Believe. Hmmm.

Got a gun, shot a night clerk, now they call him Johnny 99

I don't know how you could ever prefer Johnny 99 to ANYTHING on here, especially Devil's Arcade.

Johnny 99 is a great piece of dirty Springsteen storytelling. I guess I just love when he tells crime stories.

All of Nebraska just feels like Springsteen trying to be someone else, and it doesn't work well for me outside of "Atlantic City" and "Reason to Believe".

That being said, I enjoy Ghost of Tom Joad and Devils and Dust a great deal

Well, we can definitely agree on Atlantic City. It's one of the best songs ever by anybody ever in the history of life.

I think she meant The Band That Ties.

Also, Cadillac Ranch.

Well, I mean, it wasn't the first, nor last time Bruce would attempt character studies. Nearly every single one of his albums feature them. Really not sure at all what you mean by this.

Musically, I mean. Taking on the style he was, it just doesn't seem to fit with everything else he was doing at the time, and it's not that I slight him for trying something new, it's just, personally I don't like it.
