✨Bruce Springsteen - Letter To You (2020)✨ Oh, Bruce! Thank you for this! πŸ˜­πŸ–€ This is EXACTLY the album I needed. Maybe what we all need this year. How does he always do that!? An album about moving on in the face of loss, the transience of moments, the passing of time...and though it has this underlying melancholy and wistfulness, it’s no sad or angry record like, for example, „Wrecking Ball“ - this one is comforting. It’s like Bruce wants to embrace us all with this album and tell us that we will be okay πŸ–€. I think, that this might be his best since „The Rising“. The opener „One Minute You’re Here“ („next minute you‘re gone“) gave me goosebumps all over from the very start. Then the full band enters on the fantastic title track, and it’s clear: this is an album that would come across amazing live! Moving on to the rocker „Burnin‘ Train“, another very catchy tune. We also have three songs from the 70s here that were recorded new, and DAMN, they are so good: „Janey Needs A Shooter“, „If I Were A Priest“, „Song For Orphans“. A song about the power of music, „House Of A Thousand Guitars“ (with a little side hint to Trump: „the criminal clown has stolen the throne“). Moving on to the EPIC „Rainmaker“, which grows to be one of my fave tracks here - what a melody, what a built up, such powerful lyrics! - about searching something to believe in. Outstanding! „Ghosts“, which was previously released as a single, dedicated to the band members that have passed - can’t get the melody out of my head! And what a beautiful message. The last track, „I‘ll See You In My Dreams“, had me bursting out in tears - after losing my grandpa this year to Covid19, and missing him so much, this song hit me straight in my soul: „I'll see you in my dreams We'll meet and live and laugh again / For death is not the end“. I could write so much more about the songs, but since the space here is limited, I will close with saying that this is another proof why I love Bruce so much. No words can describe how much his music means to me, it lifts me up and comforts me, and no one can do that like him. πŸ’š What are your thoughts on „Letter To You“? #brucespringsteen #springsteen #lettertoyou
