Is it just me or is this chap completely overated?

Seems to push out "blue collar working man tunes" which are Tammy Wynette B songs at their best. Constipation R&B is not my taste.

It's just you tbf.

Certainly his golden age is long gone, but he's still bloody good live.

Did he really have a golden age?

Philadelphia?

I often listen to that Live 1975-1985 triple CD, what I have. Of course that was 28-38 years ago, and I can't think of anything much he's done since that era.

No Philidelphia was just a song for a film.

Check out the "Born to Run" or "The River" albums.

Or the Greatest Hits album is a good guide.

That said he's probably quite "marmite".

His new album is brutal, there can be no argument on that.

No idea, he's ******* old now though. He's entitled to make shit albums.

"We learned more from a three minute record than we ever learned in school". Phil Collins never wrote lyrics like that.

As I said, Bruce likes to tell you he is a mill worker's son and from the masses, the reality is that he has not wiped his own arse for 40 years.
