Much has been made of the fact that the Boss' newest album is more a patchwork quilt compared to his classics because the songs and/or recordings are from a variety of sessions, or are covers, or are re-workings of previously released songs. Whilst it's been common for fans to have encyclopaedic knowledge of their favourite artists' works, right down to session dates and origins of songs, I fear that such devoted attention to detail has somewhat prejudiced their initial attitude towards "High Hopes" as an album, perhaps believing it to be padded with filler. Whatever the Boss' motives, frankly I don't give a damn if he did pad out this album with filler because overall I think it's a sensational piece of work, beautifully sequenced and remarkably punchy. I just picked it up on impulse today and played it from start to finish on my pokey little Phillips stereo and I was hooked all the way through to the marvellously funereal cover of "Dream Baby Dream".

Of the covers and re-workings, "High Hopes" as it appears here packs more of a wallop than Springsteen's first bash at it, which ended up hidden away as a B-side or an extra track on a CD single. That particular version now strikes me as casually urgent. I didn't actually realise it was a cover and until recently assumed it was a Springsteen original. Lyrically, it suits the Boss' style perfectly and this new arrangement is brassier and more defiant. The electrified "Ghost Of Tom Joad" with Tom Morello has been a live favourite for some time and it's great to have this dynamic studio recording as part of this set. It's quite evident from this and several other songs on "High Hopes" that the seething anger of the "Wrecking Ball" album hasn't abated.

There are a number of negative reviews on here which I find confusing. Springsteen is at the point of his career where he's not really picking up 'new' fans per se, so the majority of comments here are from his legion of dedicated fans. Why lambast him for releasing new material, irrespective of whether it's a concise new album or individual tracks written and recorded over the past 10 years or so which didn't make an album released during those years? If you like, this is a mini Tracks, a compilation of songs that don't have an over-arching narrative which the majority of his albums normally do (hence why these songs didn't fit onto past albums).

Instead, we should savour the fact that The Boss still prefers the old school method of releasing songs on a format most of his fans still adhere to. If this was a newer artist, these would be download only, or part of an extended package as an additional disc on a Wrecking Ball Special Edition which is a rip-off for those who already purchased the album.

As it is, this album is pretty good. Bruce is in good voice and the arrangements and performances from The E Street Band with the overly hyped addition of Tom Morello make this the best sounding full band album since The Rising.

Highlights include;
Harry's Place which is a seriously groovy funk track with added profanities and worth the price of the album alone! The Wall which reminded me of The Wrestler from Working On A Dream and Dream Baby Dream which is an amazing and uplifting end to the album.
Also of note are American Skin (41 Shots) which is very well known as a live track from his reunion tour with the E Street Band back in 1999 and a harder rocking version of The Ghost Of Tom Joad with added guitar histrionics from Morello.

Overall, a fine album which avoids the more political anthems from Wrecking Ball but delivers a varied range of styles utilised by Springsteen since the mid 90's.

Comparing modern day Springsteen albums with pre "Tunnel of Love" Springsteen albums is an unfair and unjust task.

The best songs since the E Street Band Reunion in 1999 (such as The Rising, Long Walk Home, Land of Hope and Dreams), as good as they are, are never going to compare to the Born to Run's and Thunder Road's of the world.
However, Bruce is still very capable of putting together a strong showing. 2002's "The Rising" proved that and 2007's fantastic "Magic" remains his strongest showing since the aforementioned "Tunnel". So with that said Springsteen fans would have had `high hopes' for this latest grab bag offering consisting of cover songs, reimagined older songs and songs that were originally cast aside from other albums. The results are somewhat mixed leaving the album floundering, being better than 2009's "Working on a Dream" but not quite as strong as 2012's critically acclaimed but in reality middle of the road "Wrecking Ball".

The three cover songs "High Hopes", "Just like Fire Would" and "Dream Baby Dream" are fine but hardly likely to leave any lasting impact on Springsteen gigs in the future. Springsteen original "The Wall" also has enough of Sting's "Fields of Gold" in it to add it to this category.

"Frankie Fell in Love" sounds like it belongs on Tracks CD2 with other River outtakes and is decent enough as a filler track while the dirty sounding "Harry's Place", despite the unnecessary F Bombs, is well worth a listen.

"American Skin (41 Shots)" and the electric Tom Morello inspired version of "The Ghost of Tom Joad" both already well familiar with live audiences also find a place on this album. The former - a controversial song when first debuted in 1999 - is long overdue a place on a studio album and sounds great.
