Are you a Bruce Springsteen fan? I’m not really, but I do have a few older friends that are stoked about his recent touring. Oh Bruce. I appreciate his earlier crafting of a song but his voice gets old quick, for me. I enjoy his storytelling and the following he has developed over the years. Should I keep this album folks? An epic 1980s video.
This album was featured in a movie I saw recently on netflix ~Reign Over Me. And wouldn’t you know it ~ the next day I scored this at the thrift store?! Despite the facts that I dont think Liv Tyler or Adam Sandler can act their ways out of a hole and I can’t tolerate the hollywoodization of the 9/11 attacks.. this movie was a touching portrail of the path out of PTSD for a Bob Dylan looking Adam Sandler~ whose family died in 9/11. Cheadle is great. Music (records specifically) were his therapy.
