MAGIC...all around us. I promise

Here's the last paragraph from the LA Times review of the new BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & the E Street Band's album...to be released this coming Tuesday, October 2, 2007. Access the FULL review by just clicking on the title of this post.....

"Magic" is a record of this moment -- Springsteen makes quiet reference throughout to what he sees as an errant Bush administration and, alternately, to a marriage at sometimes shaky midlife -- but it also aims for timelessness.
It's the way Springsteen injects his American bible stories with the air of disbelief that makes "Magic" a truly mature and memorable album. He knows his fans need that rush, that jump outside their own feelings of disappointment and limitation, that he's given them for so long. Yet more and more, he seems to realize that disappointment and limitation are his m├ętier, and that sometimes a giant saxophone fill and a chorus about hungry hearts can't solve the problem. "Magic" bares its own devices beautifully, providing a kind of transcendence that allows for listeners to keep their feet on the ground. Believe in it, if you choose."

Peter here, and I believe. As he said in 1975's THUNDER ROAD, the first song from BORN TO RUN....."SHOW A LITTLE FAITH, THERE'S MAGIC IN THE NIGHT." And so many years later, well, what can I say? Just believe! Click on the title for the full review, and I hope you buy the CD....I'm lucky that he and the band open their world tour right here, in MY hometown, Hartford Connecticut, on that same Tuesday. I couldn't be happier. I've been going to his concerts for so many years. Timeless, unforgettable...that's BRUCE. Now click on the title. Be well. Always.
