As far as I am concerned, Springsteen is the greatest songwriter of my lifetime.
His music has been a constant source of inspiration to me since 1982 when I heard The River
album for the first time. The consistancy and quality of his songwriting since then has been quite astounding.
Wrecking Ball is just another great Springsteen album to add to the many already recorded. It's an angry,
"message" album. Bruce has got something to say, and he wants the whole world to hear it loud and clear.
Whilst Working on a Dream was a great album due to it's strong, lush pop melodies and it's inspiration
from 1960's pop music, Wrecking Ball's quality comes from the power and passion of it's composer.
Stand out tracks for me are the awesome Jack of all trades which is destined to become a Springsteen classic,
Death to my hometown, Rocky Ground (amazing), Wrecking Ball, and the rauchy You've got it.
Buy this album to hear the master at work. The man who for me, stands a class above all others in popular music.
