Ignored 1974: The Rising by Bruce Springsteen

In Podcast on March 25, 2018 at 2:04 pm


A dense, deep chat about “The Boss” here as my high school pal Adam Sidenberg and I revisit Bruce Springsteen’s 2002 full-length The Rising. Spoiler alert: Lots of 9/11 talk in terms of musical responses and how that time and this album were a turning point in how we view this artist. We also assess about the murkiness of late 1980s and 1990s Bruce, whether his tribute to Joe Strummer on the Grammys “made sense” and if he’d make the cut in a totally-fake reboot of the Traveling Wilburys. We wrap by talking trash about U2 and whether their last two albums were actual crap or assumed crap. Hint: The latter.
