iTunes Review

This album is Mastered for iTunes. If America named a singer/songwriter laureate, it would surely be Bruce Springsteen. Like his heroes Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, the iconic rocker chronicles the grand struggles and small triumphs of everyday people. Though Wrecking Ball was written and recorded before the start of 2011's Occupy protests, it reflects the same frustration and even anger at the heart of that movement. Sampled loops and electronic percussion pepper the album, the Boss’ first studio effort since 2009's Working on a Dream.

THE BEST EVER

I'm happy to be the first to say that this album is incredible and that you should for sure buy it. GO BRUCCEEE!!!!!!!

"To late to become a welder"

This is what Keith Richards said when asked why he was still doing Rock and Roll. Same goes for Paul McCartney (a hero) and Springsteen.

This is VERY tired stuff - especially in the age of Radiohead, or even compared to 45 year-old stuff like The Beatles "White Album"; which stills sound adventurous in comparison. Its 2012: Do we really need to here ANOTHER two chord progression as in "We Take Care of Our Own." That approach was painfully boring by "Born in The USA." Its like hearing fingers on a chalkboard for me.

Yes, interesting things can be done with two chords (check out The Beatles 1966 "Tomorrow never Knows") - but this AIN'T it.

Like Dylan, Bruce likes to keep it simple; where music is just a backdrop for poetry or imagery. But I'm not sure what his backdrop is anymore; now that he's lived in mansions for 30 years. I respected the New Jersey source material of old - even though I was not a fan. In fact, Bruce may have been one of the key figures to rescue us from Disco in 1980 when "The River" was released. We all owe him that much.

I'm a member of an Organic farm; just to hold on to some semblance of rural life.
But in the digital, virtual Internet age where everyone is now cloistered away at home in their own self-contained worlds, this "folksy" music approach is quite dated. The whole concept of romantic songs about "the Land" amongst strip-malls, fast food chains and our virtual lives is almost quaint. "We Take Care of Our Own" sounds hysterical when you realize that the ONLY people we took care of are the millionaires on Wall Street who ripped us off. This is a classic case of an artist now way out-of-touch. I don't know anyway under 40 who will buy this.

This music will last about as long as the "Occupy Movement." People have given up in this country. Sad but true. Bruce's mansion is full of stuff "Made in China" - like everyone else. As long as you supply the underclasses with TV and McDonalds; then you have succeeded in keeping everyone quiet. We now have FAT poor people. The government won. Bruce is just a romantic.

But, like Sir Paul, no one in the studio has the guts to tell these guys the new stuff is weak. I know I wouldn't. And, who cares, when they know it will debut at #1 anyway; thanks to the most loyal fans.

Amazing

Bruce Springsteen has done it again!
Another masterpiece!!!! So proud of Bruce and his continuous amazing albums!
