4.0 out of 5 stars They Gonna Make A TV Movie Outta Me.........., January 26, 2001
This review is from: Bruce Springsteen - The Complete Video Anthology, 1978-2000 (DVD)
Anyone ever notice how Bruce's characters travel through his songs and show up over time in strategic places? For instance, Mary shows up in "Thunder Road" and then in "The River" and finally in "Straight Time" from "Ghost." What a journey from youthful idealism to reality crash to acceptance of the hard ways of the world. And I think that free and innocent guy from "Born to Run" wound up with nowehere left to run on "Born in the USA" and then found a sense of peace on "Better Days." But maybe that's just me. Anyway, this is a stunning collection: part inspiring, part touching, part hard nose storytelling. The DVD format is fantastic. I got a state of the art home theatre system and this thing sounded great. I liked the newer clips as well as the old ones. My favorites: "57 Channels" for the humor(and the only time I've seen Bruce play bass) "Secret Garden" for the depiction of REAL women which is rare in videos "If I Should Fall Behind" who knew all those guys could sing so beautifully! well, I already knew from their solo records but it was nice to be reminded..."The River" at that point was brand new..could you imagine hearing that thing before it was released? "Leap of Faith"-this one really captures the spirit of the live shows "Glory Days"-in a bar no less....I guess these guys have always really just aspired to be a great bar band...somehow they became something more... The only problem I have is that there are not more extensive liner notes..... Also, did anyone notice that new song at the end; it plays over the credits. If that's Bruce singing, it sounds unlike anything I've ever heard from him. It's probably called something like "Lift Me Up"...it is uncredited.....it's just proof that his career continues(which is lucky for us) and he continues to sing a new song....Thanks, Bruce.....
