    Wrecking Ball Packs a Punch

    Posted

    When I first heard that this wasn't a full fledge E Street Band album, I became a little worried that it wouldn't turn out good at all. Boy was I wrong. This is such a great album from Bruce Springsteen. Yes, there are a few songs from the E Street Band (not a solo album) and they really did an excellent job on it. Personally I feel as if this is Bruce Springsteen's best album when it comes to the lyrics. The lyrics to the songs on this album are amazing! Every single American can relate to the album. The songs are not typical sounding Springsteen songs either. They are filled with electronic percussion and electronic clapping in the background. But, it isn't hip-hop by any means. It really adds awesome sound to the songs. I've heard Springsteen play these new songs on late night t.v. shows and they sound awesome off the album as well. Which I was worried about how he would transfer the record sound over to live sound but he did a great job. This album can relate and be enjoyed by die hard Springsteen fans and new fans alike. This is probably one of his best albums and is probably the best when it comes to the lyrics. I've had friends who have listened to the album and actually say that they like this kind of his music more than the classics. I don't necessarily agree with that but it shows that new people will like his music. The top four songs in my eyes are: We Take Care of Our Own, Shackled and Drawn, Death to My Hometown, and American Land. Anyone he picks up this album will be in love and singing along in no time. Great album and highly recommended!

    As a die-hard Springsteen fan, I wasn't sure what I would think of this album. I have to say that this is definitely his best album since The Rising. The music is somewhat different (Death to My Hometown sounds like it belongs on a Dropkick Murphys album) but very good and easy to listen to. The lyrics are very well done, as they always are with Springsteen. Tom Morello's guitar work on Jack of All Trades and This Depression is terrific. Most interesting to me is the presence, and lack thereof, of Clarence Clemons. If you listen to the album from beginning to end, you almost get through the entire thing without hearing anything from the late Big Man. Then on Land of Hope and Dreams, which was recorded before he died, his sax explodes onto you and fills you with all kinds of emotions. Overall, a very good album from Springsteen and definitely worth adding to your playlist.

    Bruce is really hitting it home with this one... home everywhere. I can't think of a single person who isn't affected by some of the concepts in this album... economic hardships, unemployment, etc. He's taken his story-telling to a new level with this very real and very powerful album. I admire his poise in the poetry and lyrics, standing tall and saying what he truly feels. The music is also incredibly moving, a big sound that is a perfect background for the even bigger words.

    Springsteen singing from his soul once again.

    While we will all miss the Big Man, and he does make one last appearance on this CD, it was still good to hear Bruce go back to his populist, Guthriesque roots on this album.

    Not as good as the Springsteen classics, but if you like his music you have to have this one too.

    I like it, sounds like old E Street stuff. Best Buy thinks that review was too short.
