Bruce Springsteen’s “Wrecking Ball ” [Album Review]
Recently "The Boss" Bruce Springsteen put out his 17th studio album titled "Wrecking Ball." This is his first album release in 3 years, and at 62 years old Springsteen has put out an album that gives him a completely new sound.At this years Grammy Awards Springsteen debuted " We Take Care Of Our Own" from the new "Wrecking Ball" and in my opinion it is by far the best track on this new release. As I listened to the rest of the tracks I kept asking myself, 'where is the Springsteen grit?' 'Where is the Springsteen edginess?'
The album sounds more like soft rock then the typical Springsteen sound.
Springsteen says that the "Wrecking Ball" was inspired by Occupy Wall Street, and America's falling on hard times. All the songs have a very political under tone. But for me it was kind of a let down as far as Springsteen albums go.
So here is my final grade for the album, if we were grading him on standing up for America and the 99% I would give him 10 out of 10. But as for the album I would say 6 out of 10.
