ALBUM REVIEW: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

The Boss is back. Bruce Springsteen’s seventeenth (17th!) studio album, Wrecking Ball, is poised to keep him in the annals of good ole, all-American rock and roll forever.

Not only that, but Wrecking Ball is Springsteen’s tenth (10th!) album to debut at number one. The Boss is a legend, and his legendary, sexy, working-man voice is in full force again here, if a bit more weathered-sounding. Crafting clap-and-stomp anthems left and right, Wrecking Ball is an Americana-infused call-to-action by politically-minded Springsteen, with commentary and observations on our society today put in perspective with days-gone-by nostalgia. Embrace the message or not; either way, Wrecking Ball is a steamroller of an album, and mostly a rollicking good time.

The Boss really is: “Jack Of All Trades”
