A few words in defense of Human Touch and Lucky Town

Human Touch

My longtime blogging comrade TJ at Viva La Mainstream has been admirably reviewing an album a day, both new and old releases, since the beginning of the year.  It's one of my favorite daily reads, and this week is of special note and interest to Bruce Springsteen fans - the entire week is dedicated to reviews of albums from the Springsteen catalog!

TJ reached out and asked me if I had interest in participating in the festivities, and I was honored to tackle not one, but TWO albums I consider to be very important from Springsteen's body of work.  My love for Human Touch and Lucky Town is no secret, and in today's Album A Day post, I spend a very brief moment examining both releases.  Important note:  I do realize that I'm sitting in a half-empty theater by expressing my love for these particular Boss albums and I'm okay with that.

It's not like I am gushing about my love for Paul McCartney in the 80's - we'll save that for another time and another post!

Thanks to TJ for the opportunity!
