Bruce Springsteen - 'High Hopes'

Bruce Springsteen - 'High Hopes'

For most artists a collection of previously unreleased offcuts would be released without much fanfare, but Bruce Springsteen is not most artists. His 18th record is notable for giving his unfathomably sexy version of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby...

Springsteen & I

There are music fans, and there are Bruce Springsteen fans. Springsteen fans aren’t just partial to a bit of The Boss in their headphones on the commute to the office, or simply fond of slipping ‘Born To Run’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’...

Bruce Springsteen - 'Wrecking Ball'

Bruce Springsteen - 'Wrecking Ball'

From the ‘Born To Run’ glockenspiel chimes to its easily-misinterpreted-as-patriotic sentiment, the lead-off track from Springsteen’s 17th album – a song called ‘We Take Care Of Our Own’ – suggests familiar ground lies ahead....

Bruce Springsteen - 'We Take Care Of Our Own'

The first single from Springsteen’s ‘angry’ 17th album ‘Wrecking Ball’ might be a kinda predictable four minutes of semi-socialist rhetoric, thunderclap percussion and hardcore heartland epic-osity, but hell, that doesn’t stop it from...

Bruce Springsteen: 'Magic'

Bruce Springsteen : The Rising

Bruce Springsteen : The Rising

Aside from 'Ghost Of Tom Joad', the last ten years haven't been Springsteen 's best. In an attempt to recall his salad days, when his earthy, working man protest songs had him pitched as the biggest (and most misunderstood) rock'n'roll star on...

Springsteen, Bruce : Sad eyes

Springsteen, Bruce : Sad eyes

As age adds another ring to his trunk, The Boss saunters back in reflective mood. Astonishingly, this single was produced by four (!!) different people, recorded by another and mixed by a sixth. The result of all this communal endeavour is...

The Artist Formerly Known As The Boss is approaching 50. He doesn't look it, but everyone else in this arena does. And by the end of this exhaustive three-hour show, many of us are feeling nigh on pensionable. But that's what we paid for....
