"Outlaw Pete"

Listening to Springsteen's latest CD; not bad, not bad at all, with elements of each of his last two albums, so there's thoughtful seriousness and there's simple good times. There's also just plain silliness: "Surprise, Surprise" ?!?!?!? If he sings this crap at halftime I'm pulling Born to Run out of its frame and replacing it with Elephunk.

Top 10 Albums*

  1. Abbey Road The Beatles
  2. Avalon Sunset Van Morrison
  3. The Best of... Earth, Wind & Fire**
  4. The Memphis Record Elvis Presley
  5. Tunnel of Love Bruce Springsteen
  6. The Miseducation of... Lauryn Hill
  7. Pleased to Meet Me The Replacements
  8. New Miserable Experience Gin Blossoms
  9. Music for the Morning After Pete Yorn
  10. The Vegetarians of Love Bob Geldof

*based more on my listening habits and taste than on any critical evaluation

**quite possibly the first album I ever bought; if not, it was 2nd after The Commodores Greatest Hits
