I have no idea what the original topic was about, but I do know that I think the avatars posing with members of the band are "a bit much." Laughing

I believe it had something to do with reporters and the overuse of the Springsteen comparison. Thoughts? lol

now about the avatars, you my friend must join our ranks!

Didn't mean to be harsh. That's what I get for not using emoticons, I guess, haha.

But in all seriousness, though, the Springsteen comparison is something only time can get rid of. Obviously the band wants their own identity, as they should. But at the same time, most people still haven't heard of them. So until the general public knows what they sound like, reviewers will have to do their best to explain it to them, and we all know music critics don't like thinking too hard about these kinds of things.

If you quote Bruce lyrics in your songs and perform with him on stage, there are going to be comparisons. Nothing to be ashamed of, they're probably just sick of journalists constantly asking them about it - I saw an interview from Hyde Park this year and rather than asking about their new album, the journalist spent most of the time talking about Bruce at Hyde Park last year.

"at night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet, its a pretty good song baby you know the rest"

Love that line.

It definitely comes in the lyricism and writing styles. If you look on Brian's blog, here is what he wrote about Springsteen



"Bruce Springsteen - always. But people don't get the meat of it... they think it's all Born in the USA and Thunder Road, and it is... but there's too much more... Bruce was my mother's...
she loved him, she taught me all about him... she played me "Backstreets" when I was a kid. That was me in my mind... "One soft infested summer... I hated him, and I hated you when you went away..." those were the words born on my tongue... My Mom and me are a team musically, we share things, she gave me Bruce, and I gave her American Steel, hope it's a good trade...
Now, here's the thing... people have over done this one to death, but I get it... it's like when people said Bruce was like Bob Dylan... it was everywhere... people need that comparison, well some do, but at the end of the day, it's a pretty good comparison... you can't really complain... and he is after all the Boss, which maybe I can be the "assistant manager" one day. But after all this let's not miss the point, Bruce is a great writer and that's why he's the best... he is, there isn't anyone better... but it's the secrets that sometimes speak louder than the hits... listen to "The Promise" - the 18 Tracks album version."




Actually, after re-reading that, not sure how exactly that helps the topic of the thread.... Suspect
