Does anyone like either of those artists? Anyone have any of their albums?
To me they seem similar. Both seem to be very talented guitar/singers. Both are getting to be old farts, who put out some great songs a few decades ago (and perhaps more recently). But both have also put out a whole load of top-40 radio crap that’s been played so many millions of times I’m reluctant to buy an album by either, certainly not that endless Born In the USA or Running on Empty crap or its ilk.
I’ve only owned one album by either artist: a Springsteen album about illegal immigrants living under bridges, making meth for a living (and dying from it), and other stuff empathic to the downtrodden. I like the album and have thought of buying something else by Bruce but don’t want any irritatingly overplayed pop. Same for Jackson Brown.
Any suggestions? Any albums by either of them worth buying?
