Well sadly the darkness days are behind us, but thankfully Bruce is still hard at work. Magic is Bruce's 15th tudio album, and is the third collaboration between him and his long term friend and producer Brendan O'Brien. The album hits the ground running, as soon as you hear the opening riff to Radio Nowhere you know this tune is going too rock. Unlike most of his earlier albums bruce has alot more politically outspoken songs on this album, from Livin' In The Future till Last to die, which both feature very clear meesages. The album ends With a very emotional song called Terry's Song, asong he wrote for his friend Terry Magovern who sadly passed away wile the album was being recorded. The highlight of the album is withut doubt Girls In Thier Summer Clothes, which features possibly the best springsteen vocals of this decade, in this song springsteen players a character we all know "the local misfit".
To fanatics like myself this album is not to the quality we have come to expect from the boss, but to those who are new to the man. This is a perfect album to get you started and possibly hooked on the genius of the heart stomping, Earth shockin, EarthQuakin', Heart Breakin', History makin' legendary Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band.
