"Show a little faith, there's magic in the night"

Frankly speaking, life doesn't get better than what's going on in mine today. That's because the wait is finally over. The man they call Bruce Springsteen is back with a new album - but he's not just back by himself. No, dear friends, it is Bruce and the beloved E Street Band reuniting for the first time since 2002. Clarence. Little Stevie. Mighty Max. They're all present and accounted for.

The release date: October 2, 2007. I'm already anticipating it, like, well......the problem is whenever I say I'm anticipating something I like to say that I'm anticipating it like a new Bruce Springsteen album because, really, you can't have more anticipation than that. Whoops! I meant to say more anticipation than this. 'Cuz it's real, baby. It's happening.

(Full details can be found here.)

So let's check the score of the game, shall we? In 2007 new albums have been relased by Bruce, The Arcade Fire, Lucinda Williams, and Wilco. Do you think Neko Case can put one together between now and the end of the year? I mean, that would be..........wait a second! The New Pornographers, the band for whom she moonlights as part-time lead singer, IS releasing a new album next Tuesday! Holy gods, it DID happen.

I have to go lay down now.
