haha I would, but they're asking you to send the LP back before they send you your CD

Forgot to mention this but apparently someone at Rolling Stone (or someone writing forRolling Stone) continues the Springsteen comparisons but with a twist: He thinks that with Handwritten Gaslight is aiming for Bruce but sounds more like Bon Jovi.

Not sure if that's a bad thing or not. He does compare "Mulholland Drive" to "Livin' on a Prayer," what with its "big chorus and cornball lyrics about dreams and pounding hearts."

(Also, not sure if this was posted before)

Shooting for Bruce and landing on Bon Jovi can't be a good thing.

I picked up Handwritten today, finally. Love it. Way more than American Slang. Also, what the hell is that Rolling Stone writing smoking? I can't see "Mulholland Drive" as anywhere near Bon Jovi.

I think these guys are ready for a live album about now. Handwritten has so many songs that are just made for a live performance.

Wow, that guy is a total dick. I've never even heard of that website though, is there any chance that article was just a joke?

Aren't they playing some festival there in September?

Yeah they are, don't have the money for that though. Still, not many people come here surprisingly.

I wonder how Brian really takes stuff like that. He's quoted as saying to not reading press because he isn't thick skinned enough.

But then again, I can easily see anyone laughing off being compared to Nickelback.
