Ci-dessous, un « best of » de la presse anglaise résumé par Backstreets.
UK journalists taking in the London premiere of The Promise documentary last night got some extra help putting it into perspective, thanks to Bruce’s surprise appearance at the event.
On creating Darkness on the Edge of Town:
- « Each one of us has a story inside, and that story doesn’t let you go. I kept having to answer the call of that story but I couldn’t explain that at the time to the other guys. So they thought I was just trying to drive them crazy. » [The Guardian]
- « I was so full of doubt that the only way I knew to get to something done was to slog away for hours and hours. We did think hard about what we were doing. If we didn’t have something I could smell it in the air. We were making a record of the times… We were sniffing out the times. » [NME]
On the outtakes that became the The Promise 2-CD set:
« We were interested in making a record that was not just the best songs. Some of the music we recorded had too much modulation going on, too much melody. Too much richness of arrangement. Everything had to go. » [The Guardian]
« We made a lot of music… and the music that was left out was truly a separate record…. There’s a lot of beautiful music we had a chance to finish over the summer and I hope people get a kick out of it. » [NME]
NME also describes Springsteen « jokingly offering to spank volunteers with his microphone stand before leaving the stage to a standing ovation. »
