4 stars Mama told me never to look in the eyes of the sun. But Mama, that's where the fun is. Blinded by the Light - another one of these Springsteen numbers remade like a master as only MMEB can do it . To yell this in concert is one of my best memories in concert in the 70's as well on their recent tour when they came to Verviers. And there is definitely more than that number on this album., namely Babylon. All is not perfect as I find Dolphins a little irritating for many tiny reasons but they are numerous as to make me skip that number, although I do not dislike it. Some version of the Cd came with better bonus track than others but get a load of Spirits sung with the new singer.

Mama told me never to look in the eyes of the sun. BUT MAMA !!!!!! THAT'S WHERE THE FUN IS !!!!!!!!!
