Had a first listen to the album this morning, walking to work in a soft autumn rain and wow, it really is a terrific record. Bruce & the E Street Band, recorded live in the studio with very few overdubs. The sound is exceptional (crank it up!) and there are some truly magnificent songs on this record. It's inspiring how Bruce at 71 can channel the voice of his younger self for the three

I enjoy new Marillion with Hogarth but haven't heard any Fish solo stuff... gave it a spin on Spotify. Wow. Expertly crafted. Wonderful lyrics. Looking forward to digging further into this.

Anyone that even remotely likes Dire Straits should check out the Alchemy DVD/CD... outstanding! Just listen to Sultans Of Swing from that show, incredible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Pa9x9fZBtY

Brothers In Arms is one of the greatest songs ever written IMO. So restrained and beautiful - the live versions with the outro slide solo are something else.

I like the song with Robbie, it's catchy. Reminds me of Forever Autumn from War Of The Worlds.

Adam Lambert is one of the most technically gifted singers I have ever heard. Of course he can't compare to Freddie but he does an admirable job overall IMO. I also think he's improved a lot compared to when he started collaborating with Brian and Roger back in 2011-2012 or whenever it was. Saw them live the other year and it was really good.

Great tune. Very excited for this. Love the E Street Energy and the spontaneous feel. Lyrics about being the last surviving member of his old band The Castilles. Boots and the spurs you used to ride Click down the hall but never arrive

Really like the new Bruce song. Amazing production and it's good to hear E Street Band again. Got a bit emotional watching the video - Bruce is 70 and the rest are of similar age so you never know how much more we're gonna get. Looking forward to the album. I enjoyed Western Stars a lot too!

Marillion are great acoustic. Love the acoustic Cadogan Hall gig from some years back.

One of the finest vocal performances ever put to tape, and in my opinion one of the greatest songs ever written. The key change for the second verse, the guitar solo, the monumental power of Freddie's voice and the instrumentation... just incredible.

LOVE these two albums. They got some fat on them but say a double album that doesn't. I'd go: 01. Civil War 02. Live & Let Die 03. 14 Years 04. Yesterdays 05. Don't Cry 06. Pretty Tied Up 07. Locomotive 08. Estranged 09. Dead Horse 10. Double Talkin' Jive 11. November Rain 12. You Could Be Mine 13. Coma My World is of course a travesty but I pretty much like all the othe

Now I don't mind Bon Jovi most of the time but as others have said I can not stand when he's trying to emulate Springsteen - poorly. One is a world class lyricist and the other is Jon Bon Jovi. The lyrics are subtle as a brick and reads like a message board post on "what's wrong with America".

Wow could not disagree more. He's written some outstanding pop tunes - I think the post-reformation Take That stuff is tremendous. Beautiful melodic pop. One of the most successful music comebacks of all time no matter how you slice it. I saw Take That at the O2 in London last year and it was a phenomenal show. Even if you weren't a huge fan of the music you'd enjoy the extraordinary stage s

Agree! Live especially Roger's backing vocals were a huge part of the sound. His raspy tenor is the perfect compliment to Freddie, and he has got some great lead vocals too in their discography. His solo work is great too. Especially Electric Fire from 1998 and the final The Cross album.I love Brian May's voice too - soft and gentle and the perfect third part of their harmonies. He sings lead on

Wow could not disagree more. I thought it was a fantastic album. Perhaps a song too long but hey. The title track is a straight up masterpiece and Tucson Train is Bruce at his three-chord best. The companion film was also great where he performed the album in an old barn in New Jersey,bookended by a great cover of Glen Campbell's Rhinestone Cowboy. Edit: i have seen Bruce live 9 times, t

Yep one of my favourites. Very varied, superbly melodic. It's a very atmospheric album, Stormy Weather sets the tone from the get-go and the entire thing has a wonderful ambience to it. Many great harmony vocals on this CD and some superb drumming from Mickey Barker. Around this time Tony Clarkin also tapped into another gear guitar-wise in the live setting - the concert from their 1992 Bir

17 years since this absolute belter of a record was released. Any fans? Thought it would be a good idea to bring it out and give it a spin for the first time in a good while. Still holds up extremely well. Heavy, melodic, almost metal in places with some of Bob's finest singing put on tape.

A mild one but scary nonetheless. All the best to Brian, decent bloke and one of the all time great guitarists. Nobody has ever sounded like him.

Well said Figge, agree with everything you said. For the latter day stuff, all the albums from Brand New Morning (2004) and onwards are very consistent so if you like their updated sound there is much to enjoy and discover. Best of luck Hustler, there is a lot of great music for you to explore. Generally their albums have aged extremely well IMO. I guess Vigilante with the gated drums a

20 quality albums, even Breath Of Life that is my least favourite one has some good tunes. The Serpent Rings was excellent! And the three album run of OASN - Vigilante - Wings Of Heaven is hard to beat, just out of this world.
