5.0 out of 5 stars The Rising (Tour Edition), 16 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Rising [Tour Edition] [Bonus DVD] (Audio CD)
Written in response to the events of 911 `The Rising' offers up some exceptional tracks from Bruce that combine his usual high quality song writing with some poignant lyrics. These lyrics are not too `in your face' and subtlety is definitely the key element here, you could quite easily listen to this album and not focus on the inspiration for it. The album opener `Lonesome Day' starts you off in good stead and this album has a good mix of fast and slow songs. Standout tracks for me are `Further on (Up The Road) which has a great upbeat feel to it, the title track and `My City of Ruins' which is a beautiful way to end this album. There are various editions of this album (all of which I own) and this tour edition with the additional DVD is worth a look. It includes the music video for `Lonesome Day' as well as other tracks preformed live. You don't get too much extra on the DVD, but for an all round package it is probably still worth paying slightly more for this edition. If you're a fan of Bruce you won't be disappointed and if you're new to him then this isn't that bad a place to start either. One of those albums that still sounds fresh and relevant almost 10 years later.
