Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Promise (Audio CD)
I would definitely say that this is an album for Bruce fans. I'm not so sure that it would have general appeal to either younger listeners or those new to Springsteen. I think it certainly has an aged (or possibly 1970s) feel and it covers all sorts of styles. This makes it a bit of a mish-mash I think, although as an album, it flows. A few of the tracks are a bit twee such as "Someday (we'll be together)" which bizarrely I thought sounded like Andy Williams. I felt this is mostly an easy-listening kind of album and interesting as a record of Springsteen's "missing" work and as such is worth 4 stars.
Some really great sleeve notes come with the audio CD and of course the lyrics. A fab extra track not listed on the jacket is on the second half of the final track of disc 2.
