Songs with a tingle factor, 21 Jan 2014
I've been a fan of Springsteen for many years and I'm baffled by some of the negative reviews on this site by people who seem to have nothing better to do than pick holes in musical talent. This is one of the most enjoyable CDs I've purchased for a while. The songs, though varied in style and content meld together to create an uplifting album with a rich sound and several spine tingling moments, particularly American Skin, The Ghost of Tom Joad (awesome!) and Dream Baby Dream. Tom Morello's playing is wonderful. This album grabs your attention from the first track with High Hopes and I was certainly not disappointed. I played it on repeat during a long drive to the Far North of Scotland and the music was just as powerful as the landscape around me.
