Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA


Lucky Town and Human Touch both have some excellent songs (Souls of the Departed, Lucky Town, Better Days, Human Touch, Soul Driver) but don't really make for a great album. They are both fairly different so you can't say they would have been better if you just took the best of both. Human Touch sounds very much like it was supposed to be an E Street Band follow up to Tunnel of Love, but Lucky Town actually sounds very different.

The Other Band tours kicks rear end too, lots of great shows from that one. If you do go over to nugs.net buy the Meadowlands 1993 show they have up. It's an incredible, eclectic set list. The songs with Southside are great, the acoustic stuff is good and the live arrangement of 57 Channels is so radically different and great.

High Hopes is a really great album and for my money the best thing he's put out this century followed by Magic. Tom Morello adds so much to it and the tour that followed is one of the most interesting ones Bruce has done. Lots of weird, unexpected stuff like that great cover of Stayin Alive.

Western Stars is really good. It's so different from every album he's ever done before. Definitely has the feel of the mood he was in when he wrote Working on a Dream but musically it sounds nothing like it. But you can kind of feel the vibe in a few of the songs and Drive Fast sounds like it is in conversation with The Wrestler.

The release also means that we are that much closer to the release of the legendary hip hop album.

Wild and Innocent is at the bottom of my list. Kitty's Back is great live, E Street Shuffle can be, it was cool to hear New York City Serenade Live and Rosalita is fine, but listening to it as an album is a chore.
