I am wondering if the thread creator is on the younger side. I am a massive Springsteen fan and I could see someone having that attitude as his music changed with his life. The thing is, if I switched off after The River or Born in The USA or even The Rising, I would have missed all of the amazing music he did and a load of awesome live performances. It may be impossible to capture the magic of youth but you can still have a great time enjoying what great artists do in the now. Who cares if they are "as popular" as they once were?
I do wonder after seeing this thread bumped up from nowhere that how come it can be interpreted this divisibly. In a handsight, things are not as clear as they were, without the context and athmosphere of that time.
Back when I posted this in the end of 2018, there were a lot of messages saying she got mild, she does not have the young energy anymore, she does not do punk rock, she's not doing enough promo, she's not releasing music videos where she massacres people in a parking lot etc. I thought "it is time to let go of those expectations" because she is not that person anymore, neither are we the same fans. We had definitely got spoilt (and still getting so!), and I implied that maybe it would be better to enjoy the ride, whatever comes from her.
Me rereading my first comment makes me "yeah I still think that!" and reading some of the new replies I'm like "wait that's not what I meant at all and that is not what it is written there!". No wonder we as a whole society have all these issues nowadays with communication and agreeing with arguments. 😅 But that's another story.
I was just a happy pumpkin being content for those 20 years back then, and still am, since then we got an album and a movie, so I just got happier.
