    A huge disappointment. I'm reminded of that 'Do you recal, when they build that ladder to heaven' post 9/11 claptrap. Bruce wants us to believe all he has left is 'Devils and Dust' keep rattling on Bruce I'm sure someone will believe your boring long winded preechy 'I've got them poor man blues' - pure fantasy. The Boss is now The Bore.

  1. Alas, it's not as consistently satisfying as 'Born To Run' or 'Born In The USA', and Springsteen's voice, always gravely at the best of times, has taken on an increasingly wizened air that sometimes renders it frustratingly impenetrable.
  2. The Rising sounded like a formulaic album made out of patriotic duty. Despite its flaws, formulaic is not an adjective that applies to most of Devils and Dust, an album that rarely does what you expect it to.

    Devils is a more mature effort than Joad and Nebraska, for being a little less bleak. [29 Apr 2005, p.144]
