I've been listening to the new album since last night, when it first was available for download. Go here for samples. Even better, go buy the thing--it's his best since 2002,and very possibly one of his best ever. I mean that, and I've been a fan since a million years ago. At first listen, there are a half-dozen classics on this album--you will be hearing the songs "Girls in their Summer Clothes" and "Gypsy Biker" quite a bit in the next few months, I think. But this is the one that left me shaking. "Devil's Arcade". What a song. Dear Lord, to be able to write like that.... "A voice says "don't worry, I'm here Just whisper the word "tomorrow" in my ear A house on a quiet street, a home for the brave The glorious kingdom of the sun on your face Rising from a long night as dark as the grave On a thin chain of next moments and something like faith"
'Magic,' Bruce Springsteen's new studio recording and his first with the E Street Band in five years, is has been released by Columbia Records.

St. Paul, anyone???
