5.0 out of 5 stars Brendan O'Brien's absence makes this a great album, 21 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Wrecking Ball (Audio CD)
Springsteen made a huge mistake on his last two albums, Magic and Working on a Dream, by having Brendan O'Brien as producer. O'Brien created an indistinct sound which muffled some fine instrumentation and vocals. The result was a disaster and fans noticed a huge difference when the songs on these albums were played live. Now O'Brien has been replaced by Ron Aniello, who has brought back the superb production values that characterised Springsteen's early albums. Let's hope the Boss has learned his lesson.

I'm glad someone else thinks about this the exact same way as I do. I never thought Bruce would bounce back from those two albums. Thought The Rising was a one off almost, but there you go. Especially Magic suffered from the muffled sound you point out. My least favourite Springsteen album for sure. Wrecking Ball on the other hand is possibly the best!

You are entitled to your opinon of course, but Magic was a fantastic album, every song was superb. Unlike this Wrecking Ball album which apart from about 3 tracks is pretty average. Brendan O'Brien is a great producer along with Kevin Shirley, the best of the modern day rock producers.
