    I think the solo (especially folk) records have to be judged on a separate scale from E Street Band albums.

    Of course, that's acknowledging he hasn't released a full-fledged ESB record since 2003, and apparently never will again.

    I'd basically agree with this, except I'd slot The Rising in at about No. 4.

    Again, Nebraska is kind of in its own universe. Some days, I could see it up at about No.3; other days, down in the teens.

    So the album cover is a panoramic painting of a horse's ass.

    I’m not feeling the new album. I love that he tried something new but very little resonates. For me, the songs all mesh together like a 45 minute PG rated “Reno”. He also really is into the overproduction, even on a minimalist record like this.

    That being said, “Hell, these days there ain't no more, now there’s just again” is up there in his lyrical pantheon

    He kind of rewrote Brilliant Disguise here, didn’t he?

    The video is more interesting than the song

    It’s chicken parm from your favorite neighborhood Italian. Decent, familiar and nothing special.

    I can’t really figure out the song.

    That’s more Jon Landau than I need.
