iTunes Editors’ Notes

While the title track about a soldier at war synched with the then-current issue of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, many of the songs on Devils & Dust, Bruce Springsteen’s third album of near-acoustic ruminations (in the tradition of Nebraska and The Ghost of Tom Joad), were ones that Springsteen had kicked around for more than a decade. “Long Time Comin’” and “The Hitter” made appearances in his live set for the Joad tour. “Reno” is a graphic and affecting song about a man trying to lose his sorrow in the arms of a prostitute, to no avail. “Jesus Was an Only Son” has a spiritual grace, enhanced by piano and strings. “Maria’s Bed” aches with some of Springsteen’s most clenched vocals and a rhythm section redolent of early Rod Stewart. “All I’m Thinkin’ About” shuffles with the feel of an old blues. “All the Way Home” is a full-band blowout, with a dark snarl in the guitars that’s pure catharsis. Often overlooked, Devils & Dust is one of Bruce’s finest albums.

Customer Reviews

Another Bruce masterpiece

This is another great Bruce collection of acoustic songs. Bruce fans of Nebraska and The Ghost of Tom Joad definitely need to get this. The songs are all great! . Devils & Dust, Reno, Black Cowboys, Silver Polomino, Jesus Was an Only Son, The Hitter, and Matamoros Banks are all great 5 star songs. If you are a fan of Nebraska and The Ghost of Tom Joad you will love this as well. The Boss just keeps producing great music.

Haunting and Lyrical

Unless you expect the Boss's style to be frozen in time in the late 70's, you will appreciate where the arc of his life and career has taken him with this album. It perfectly reflects (as Springsteen's albums always do) the times in which it was created. He connects with the raw emotions then emerging from the Iraq war and immigration issues, as well as from much more personal matters. You can feel in it the dark clouds that were starting to form on the horizon, as well as hope for the future. None of it is trite or overdone. The lyrics and music are haunting and beautiful. I love this album. It touches me deeply every time I listen to it.

My favorite

The best Bruce S. album for me.
