Like several others I was wary of the Tom Joad comparisons.
These are however unwarranted even if this is not a full-band album .The key ingredients of a great record are here : great lyrics in all the songs and some beautiful music. And also a new sounding album after 30 years of great music . After first 2 or 3 listens I would have given it 4 stars,but after closer listening to the slower story-telling songs this gets the full 5 ..read the lyrics to the Hitter or Black Cowboys while listening to this on your DVD player .. awesome !! And then get uplifted by Marias Bed , Leah and Long Time Coming songs that are up there with his best .

I bought this on the day of it's release eagerly anticipating new material from the "Boss" man. After the first couple of plays, I thought another "Nebraska" - dark, introspective but sometimes a little dull if you are in the wrong mood. Suddenly, having played it again and read the lyric booklet - I can't take it off my cd player for very long. It grows and grows on you. If you are a fan of the stadium rocker Brucie, then this might not appeal, although "All The Way Home" and "Long Time Comin'" would fit right in to that sort of setting. The rest of the album takes you through some deep lyrics, and different moods. I much prefer it to "Nebraska". There are shades of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, the album has a distinct country feel to it, and it's delivered with effortless cool. Stand outs for me are the moody "Devils and Dust", and "All I'm Thinking About is You" which is a light countryish song that becomes very catchy after a few plays. Plus you get a bonus acoustic dvd. Happy listening.......

Much to my shame this is the first album I've bought of Bruce's. A wonderful introduction to my now slowly growing collection. For the folks who reviewed slating I'd suggest buying the VH1 Storytellers DVD. Perhaps you'll be enlightened as to whats behind Jesus Was an Only Son... other than the obvious. The guy is simply a genius. I also was fortunate enough to see him in Atlantic City, NJ November last year whilst on holiday. Any man who's 55 and can still rock like that well deserves his alias... The Boss. Don't delay, buy the album, it wasn't No1 for nothing. A breath of fresh air in today's hazy pop-ravaged nonsense.

I am a long time Bruce fan, and personally I prefer his work with the E Steet Band. I thought The Rising was truly brilliant, and I like this the best of his acoustic style albums. Don't know what Amanda Richards is on about in her review, she's obviously not a fan of the Boss. If you're a fan you'll like this a lot, if not you won't. Simple really.

listening to this as writing a review....for an artist in his mid fidties this is lyrically and musically brave and brilliant...the voices are experimental both performance and narrative wise and the playing and prodction superb....leah in particular is a mighty track... if dylan had done this at this age he'd be even more immortal.....

This is, quite simply, Springsteen's best work for nearly 20 years. An evocative array of songs from such rich characters as the faded boxer to the stranded G.I. to the illegal immigrant.

Both uplifting and realistic some of the tales are ambiguous whilst others are just soaked in futility and failure, yet none are ever unmoving.

A beautiful record that does Bruce justice as he follows the footsteps of Dylan, Guthrie and Stienbeck through the dust bowls of America.

Devils and Dust is an adult album in the truest sense.It covers both lyrically and sonically adult emotions in a way that most contempary musicians either avoid or would struggle to articulate.The CD comprises of 12 songs covering themes as wide ranging as the anxieties / fears of the modern soldier in Iraq (Devils and Dust)to the lonliness and desparation of a man sharing a liason with a prostitute whilst contemplating the loss of a loving relationship (Reno).This is the first review I've written on Amazon and felt strongly enough about the quality and depth of Bruce's new CD to urge al those people who only buy 3 - 4 CD's a year to make sure they buy this on!.At least 2- 3 songs on this album will become indispensible to any serious students of the human psyche and emotional state.If like me you were unable to get a ticket for the Royal Albert Hall to see Bruce In May the new CD provides more than adequate consilation.Many Thanks Bruce....
