Los Angeles TimesThe heart of the CD is filled with the compassion and craft that have made Springsteen such an invaluable figure in rock. [24 Apr 2005]
Entertainment WeeklyDevils is a more mature effort than Joad and Nebraska, for being a little less bleak. [29 Apr 2005, p.144]
New Musical Express (NME)Welcome home, The Boss. [30 Apr 2005, p.64]
Ultimately, Devils & Dust feels like his attempt to reestablish himself as a working performer; his new material comes without weighty expectations for grand pronouncements, or the burdens of being a living icon. In that way, it's considerably more successful than his last such attempt, the 1995 album The Ghost Of Tom Joad.

B.B.Apr 27, 2005This record is not for the masses. It's for people who listen to "records" rather than download a song here and there. If you sit This record is not for the masses. It's for people who listen to "records" rather than download a song here and there. If you sit through this from start to finish, with the lyrics in hand (or watching them off the dvd on your tellyscreen) you'll be struck in awe. Great lyrics, great poetry. Standout tracks: "Reno" great story of sadness and sure ti stirr up a lot of emotions in puritan circles; "Long Time Coming", an instant classic; "Matamoros Banks", a narrative told in reverse, from the corpse at the bottom of the river 'till the man trying to cross the Mexican- American border, "All I'm Thinkin' About" a sneer/ode to Neil Young, Van Morrison, Canned Heat???, "Jesus was an only Son", Bruce goes Waits/Zevon,... Definitely NOT a rock record: two rock tunes, couple of ballads, some alt-country, folk, but mainly brilliant storytelling and characterdepiction. Nice packaging too. Good job, once again, Boss.… Expand

MikeAMay 6, 2005Moody, soft folk music, along with beautiful, often moving lyrics. Another great Springsteen album, which makes one wonder, can the Boss fail?
