4.0 out of 5 stars Working on a Dream, 23 Sep 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Working On a Dream (Audio CD)
`Working on a Dream' is the latest offering from Bruce (at time of writing) and follows on pretty much where `Magic' left off, but with the benefit of less intrusive production this time round. The album opener `Outlaw Pete' is a great way to kick things off and I love it despite the irritatingly catchy main refrain! The title track, in my opinion, is probably the weakest track on the album and always surprises me that the album was named after it, but that's why I'm not in musical marketing. `Good Eye' is Bruce's homage to `Crossroads' and is one of the most overtly bluesy tracks he has done in a long while, but with a rocky edge to it. One of my favourites on the album is `Kingdom of Day's and this is the one that feels most Springsteen-esque to me, it definitely harks back to previous songs of his. `Queen of the Supermarket' is also a very strong offering and this album finally closes with the bonus track `The Wrestler` from the film of the same name. Overall this album throws up no real surprises and although it is very good, it is not one of his best. It won't be one I'll immediately be coming back to when I fancy that instant hit of Bruce, but it is one to be enjoyed and replayed at various times over the coming months when the mood takes you. Good but not great.
