    Still the Same: GREAT!

    I have been a fan of Bob Seger's music since Ramblin' Gamblin' Man, and I honestly feel that this is his best album ever. It's even better than Stranger in Town which has been on my Top 10 Great Albums list since it first came out. Anyone who has thought that mainstream rock was dying out, or that Bob Seger may have lost his touch, needs to listen to this great, great album, it will reconfirm your faith in rock as a viable form of music that has a lot of life in it still. If you only buy one album by a major rock musician this year, this should be it.

    Outstanding-Seger at his best!!!!!!

    Face The Promise presents Seger-------NOT a worn out rock god trying to hang on-NOT a guy trying to capture a totally different genre'- NOT Seger repackaged- This project is clearly Seger but it is fresh, great writing and outstanding and tasteful arrangement- Great musicianship- (I've worked with Gordon Mote,piano on Real Mean Bottle) Hats off to Bob Seger- Mr.Seger,this project clearly isn't "Against The Wind",This ones' got the wind at its' back and it should be flying-Thanks for a great one!

    Re Mr.David Sprague & BN review

    Hello- Mr.Sprague mentions the title track "Face The Promise" as about a guy wanting to latch onto an Eldorado and get out of town-Not so- Seger is writing about a place,"theres got to be an ElDorado" as in Edgar Allen Poe of 1849 re: "In Search of ElDorado" , a place,a Nirvana, Ya' gotta give Seger credit where its due.The review was great but wrong on this point. Thank you.

    Simply wonderful

    If it seemed like Bob Seger had been missing in your life since the early 80s, all of a sudden this disc blows in like the coolest breeze. Hard to describe how great and unassuming this music is...it's neither self conscious nor fashion clad, just straight up relevant to a wide swath of Americans. Buy it now and enjoy with close friends and loved ones.
