I think Bruce write his songs always thinking of a soundtrack for short films or documentaries about the life of an middle-american-man. It is obvious that this song is a typical movie-song that digs in the souls and in the power of images. the music is conceived within this film size. from streets of philadelphia Bruce held his music in an ever more different style to capture the images, sensations, the spirit and essence of certain experiences. before, maybe, the music had a base, a sound, an untouchable style, on which he based the lyrics. Now the path is to the contrary.I heard this song after a long and exhausting day driving in the car. It's amazing how Bruce enters our soul and manages to give an image that maybe we didn't know.
And basically this is the meaning of his art. Thanks, Mr Springsteen.

How can you compare this to older material, since it is so different. Looking forward to hearing this again more often.

u r right Joe71

Springsteen has always been a visual writer. He loves descriptives - never done better than on 'Black Cowboys', for example. He burns images into your brain. So what if, after 40 years, he still sings about the same themes? His stories just get richer with the years.

@Camilo: Over the past decade, Springsteen has moved on several musical terrains. at the end i think he lived a certain sound rock like a personal cage. After born in the u.s.a Springsteen was always like a man that anxiety of trying new ways. It is not always successful, but always attempted. I believe that the crucial moment of her new career was streets of philadelphia. With that song Bruce has probably figured out that cinematic vision could be useful and decisive for his music. His arrangements are more complicated and less direct. His sound is less "e street" and more elaborate. The old material was a phase and a vision of things. Now Springsteen is a man who sees things differently and have the honesty to represent them in a different way. This depression is a song about loneliness, resignation, inner fury, there is a sense of disquiet that dominates. Bruce has sought the most authentic way to represent it without having to repeat Nebraska or Tom Joad or drive all night. Without having to always make a photocopy of his old style. Or maybe just because the man who is now alone, is also an older man and abandoned boy drive all night or man Johnny 99 etc. It's a mature man near the age of retirement or death. And at that age you have to say things in a different way. You have Neil Young, Tom Waits, Mellencamp,...and others..I think that Bruce has no trouble writing a disc like Tom Waits or disk like Leonard Cohen. But maybe he thinks that this time his voice needs different sounds and images. That also needs to not be too of elites and too far from a common, collective, choral. It's still a man in the midst of his country and his people. It is not yet time for the closed rooms.

its sound of soul in this moment
Start Conversation
I do not particularly care for the sound of this album. I am a 30 year fan of his music, and have all previous albums, but this one just does not thrill me for some reason. It is clanky and somewhat harsh sounding to my. Just my opinion.
Start Conversation
Depressing sound! Miss the old Bruce. Wow. This will not sell.
Start Conversation
Really? I thinks its an amazing song... Different, not obvious and heartfelt... Dont care if it doesnt sound like Born To Run, all I care is for dignity and honesty and this song is full of that...
Start Conversation
It sucks. He's horrible now. He used to be so good. What happened Bruce?
Start Conversation
This song maybe be a bit sad, but the album is not depressing. Angry? Hell yes! It's supposed to be a rousing protest album, and I think he nails it. Love the mix of classic Irish Folk (Seeger Sessions) with a bit of late 80s Boss (You've got It and We Take Care of Our Own) and a bit of The Rising (Easy Money). A great mix of several Springsteen periods.

FYI - There is no "Old Bruce." The guy is an artist, and has consistently explored new territory for over 30 years.

Bad Experiment my friend--I wont buy
Start Conversation
Once again Springsteen is able to touch my heart, my soul and my mind like no other artist. Thanks Bruce
Start Conversation
Yeah, we'll see how far this album goes. It's going nowhere. Guaranteed to be many empty seats in his shows. Don't forget he's in this for the money and this one is not going to work.
Start Conversation
Excellent. I love the new album so far.
Start Conversation
Very different and great. How many other artists his age are making music as vital? Answer: no one. Keep up the great work, Bruce. Looking forward to the new album, SXSW and Tour 2012.
Start Conversation
Anyone clamoring for the "Old Bruce" everytime he records are going to be disappointed everytime. I'm glad people like Emily and Anthony won't be attending shows. More chances for good seats for the rest of us. The E Street train will keep on moving along nicely without all you haters and so-called "fans."
Start Conversation
This is both timely and Beautiful. You have to listen to all of the other songs on the album leading up to this to fully appreciate.
Start Conversation
I think it`s a great song. The album seems to be a step forward after Working on a dream. I´m looking forward to the tour!
Start Conversation
so far it sucks. i am a diehard fan too. but i have to tell you,this just might be the worst record he has put out. i wasn't expecting Darkness 2 or Born to Run. i was expecting something i could at least listen to. if he plays these songs in concert , people will leave.
Start Conversation
Emily did you try to get tickets. His US Shows all sold out in about 5 minutes
Start Conversation
After listening to these songs, I can't imagine what this tour is going to be like and how anyone will be able to keep a dry eye. In my mind, the only thing I can compare it to is a candle lit vigil. It will be exhaustingly awesome.
Start Conversation
All his songs are true to his and our hearts. God bless you Bruce !
Start Conversation
@Joe, I am thinking you know Bruce pretty well in all aspects of his creative writing. It is always interesting reading your commentary. You are right on the money about each song digs to your soul. The weirdest thing today, I get out of work at @:230 p.m And right before I left a former co-workers Mom had passed away. And then I get home and listen to this track. I don't think there is ever a bad album or a so called "sucks"as the one gentleman put it. I just get excited getting Bruce's latest views of the world. Before I became a Bruce fan in 1983, I was a HUGE Beatles fan. And a very serious Lennon fan. My mom was a British war bride from World War 2 and she turned me on to the Beatles in 1964 when i was 6 years old. But after getting in the music of Bruce I have never looked back although the Beatles still get a lot of airplay at home and in the car but nothing like Bruce. Bruce is a national treasure who has stayed HEALTHY and continues to keep us fans inspired with hope and dreams. This is one train I don't ever want to get off. The tour will add a couple of new tracks but he will still keep his trunk of the classics and diamonds in the rough. So far I see We Take Care of Our Own and Death Of My Hometown as front runners.

Bruce...more messages to find in the quiet of the night
Start Conversation
This is a new sound, for sure, but it's an interesting and profound sound. There are very impressive tracks, musically and lyrically.
Start Conversation
Trying to keep an open mind here but.... I understand Bruce is current with the times but I want to go to his show and FORGET about the times. I want to sing and dance and enjoy myself. Not happenin yet.
Start Conversation
by far the worst track I have heard so far. boring, will be the bathroom break at the shows
Start Conversation
suzywong (Paris)great song, I will buy certainly the album
Start Conversation
This sounds very much like music written by Bruce for Bruce. If you have a brain you have a pretty good idea about the reality we are living in. I'm 56, wife, kids and a couple of jobs. I don't really need a mirror or a reminder of just how challenging these times are. We are living it. I suppose Woody Guthrie already did it. Beyond that, I'm fairly conservative and have always accepted Bruce for who and what he is, actually respect him for it. I have put the politics off to the side as I imagine have many. He's making it a bit tougher here. Yes, I'll buy the album and given the opportunity catch as many shows as possible. I have the nagging feeling however that Bruce, if roles were reversed might not be as charitable.
Start Conversation
More Glockenspiel...but seriously...so far I like what I've heard. Nothing has stood out as an immediate hit but I like what I've heard better than anything on "Working on a Dream". I'll reserve the final judgement for when the entire CD comes out.

If you buy a Springsteen record expecting everything to be another "Born" or "Darkness" you will ALWAYS be positively disappointed. Those records are a product of the perfect mesh between the artist of that time and that exact moment in time and those two things will never again coincide. (Just as Elton John is never going to make another Tumbleweed Connection). You just have to deal with it, open up your mind and ears and try to hear where the artist is at at this new moment in time.
Start Conversation
@ Joe.....right on point! Times change as we do, believe I would like to be stuck back in the times of The Wild and Innocent! But we all move on and so has he. It is all about perspective and how you look at life and what these songs say to you.....I like it! Politics aside, he does do allot of good for NJ and the hungry and homeless...paid for the new boardwalk in Asbury as well....

Some people get and some don't... always the way with Bruce and his music.

John,Emily I dont think u should drink when taking your xanax.

Please remember Bruce still makes albums not just one-hit singles. If you have been following the release of these songs this week, this is clearly the end of side one--a pillar of the album. The character has come to a crossroads. Tom Morello's guitar break sounds like screams and then tonally it changes to become more cheerful as if the character says "Let's get busy livin; or let's get busy dying!" Next week, Wrecking Ball will debut...so I think Bruce's character will say "Bring on that Wrecking Ball, I am ready to get busy liv'in! You can not hurt me now or anymore!"
Start Conversation
Its simple, this Springsteen in this album is asking listeners to raise to a higher level of compassion and integrity towards each other and their community. That requires work. Make no mistake this is why many react so adverse to the album. As one said, I just want to forget my problems. He asking us if we can find it in ourselves to do more than this. When we look back in twenty years at this time will we respect a man who helped us get through or one who said forget about it lets party.
Start Conversation
Having been a Springsteen fan since I first heard Jungleland, I don't expect a "happy go lucky dance to the music album" based on what has been happening in this Country for the past several years. These new songs are rich and paint a tapestry of contemporary times. I for one am upset over Wall Street and Bankers who walked off guilty as hell with a severance package you and I will never see. Bruce paints these men as men of dishonor and deservedly so. Bruce keeps us all grounded and will sing a happy song when times dictate. Listen to what he sings and if you are up on current events it is exactly what you feel inside. Right on Bruce. Wrecking Ball should be mandatory hearing for all new CEOs, Bankers, and Executives. We should take care of our own; the working class of the USA and other countries.
Start Conversation
From what I've heard, the record is gonna be pretty good It's not going to be another BTR or Darkness but it's great for a guy who's been in rock music for 40 years. Much better than "Working On a Dream" so far. For those who say that there will be empty seats at his shows, I was on Ticketmaster the second tickets went on sale for the Atlanta show and the best ticket I could get was in the upper deck.
Start Conversation
When fan's listened to U2's No Line On the Horizon, many thought oh my God, what have they done. Then as they understood the message behind the songs and what they truly meant, the songs grew and grew on people and many of the songs on that CD are now classics in such a short time. I believe that when people/fans start understanding what Bruce's new songs mean they will feel the same. They are no longer about Cindy, Mary, Johnny or Terry. They are about the morals and values that these characters believed in.

I'm turning 50 in a few months and there aren't many new bands I like. All I can say is thank God for Bruce Springsteen. His words and music never cease to move my spirit. I can't wait to see him live in Cleveland for about the 30th time. It's always an amazing show. For all of you saying you miss the "old Bruce." I say "wake up!" The man has progressed over the years like no other artist. His music today is as powerful as ever. One thing is for sure: You can never accuse Bruce of mailing it in. The guy gives it his all. Can't wait for March 6. I'll be the first in line. Might have to take off work that day and just listen to "Wrecking Ball" over and over.

Over 39 years ago, I let Bruce Springsteen's music into my soul. The '70s then and now seemed to have an air of darkness to them, reflecting on the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. The dismal fact that 55,000 plus troops were lost from their families forever was a big part of the era. At the time I was still wondering what really happened to JFK, RFK and MLK Jr., I was young and impressionable. However, the seed was planted in the '60s and history has proven that the American Dream for all US Citizens is like chasing a rainbow. How would these now known truths come to light, where did this skinny Jersey dude from the Jersey Shore get his facts back then...?
Try this on, the E-Street Band came into my life; I loved that garage band sound. The poetic words that back then the young Bruce put his thoughts and lyrics on paper. The power of music mixed with a talented musician took the story of his journey into my life that is still true today in 2012. His songs add more substance to every living fiber in my soul. Why you ask? I believe in the way Bruce delivers with the E-Street Band right by his side in the studio and on stage. I feel as if they have this uncanny way of walking in my shoes, seeing through my eyes and putting their hand on my chest feeling the rage inside of me, the peace that longs to triumph; and every other emotion I have encountered in the past 39 years watching factories close, families lost, homeless walking the streets, veterans who can't find work or are crippled from war. The assignation of a President, his brother the senator from NY, and the prominent leader of the Civil Rights Movement who fought and believed for equality for all people of these United States and the World. I did not see this man as black; I saw him as a human being with the same color of blood as mine, again the eyes of the world are still watching.
The '80s became a lost decade for me when my own brother's life ended in 1983. My only sibling gone, that in itself gave me the right to understand the Vietnam War debacle and my world stopped spinning. Then in the '90s I worked for a big box corporate rat. Other people who I worked with were also working there because the construction trades said, "We are only here because the new housing market tanked." Ironically, those same men would have preferred to work 16 hour days then to put up with the working atmosphere of that non-union giant rat. For example, the breakdown in fundamental ways of running a country, 9/11, Katrina, and a president that lied to the world.
The new century started out with turbulence during the vote recount for the presidency in 2000 and the down turn of the economy in 2001 were both early indicators of bigger problems to come. Somehow these events were hushed over with other events that followed 9/11 and the Government's so called need for revenge overseas. Economical problems such as: Enron, Tyco, and FTC and the patriot act. These scenarios affect all of us in the way birth certificates are viewed when looking for work, driver's licenses, library cards and US citizenship all have come under the US Government's microscope as on the same level written in, "George Orwell’s 1984" first published in 1949. So much more could be written the facts that led up to 9/11.
I read about all these scenarios and the rage inside me gets going and the wounds fester all over again. The way in which I choose to control these scars is through music and photography that started way before my introduction to Springsteen. However, the clarity of the E-Street Band came hard and softened those bruises like, “Wrecking Ball” which is now another chapter in a musical novel that I hear
and read that walks alongside history in the making. Some say that I have put Bruce on pedestal, "I say give me a reason and I will let you know more...”
Bruce has once again filled his gas tank (Jon Stewart's words) he's calling out to our leaders, to his listeners, and to anyone who gives a damn. Bruce is our big brother, a patriot from Jersey and went the inner city that lies in peril with empty buildings rising into the smoggy air, rusting away into the water aquifers and who knows where that stuff goes. Oh...! I get it, to the greedy 1% uppity politicians and people who would rather put on their horse blinders. Yeah, I am talking about those corporation rats who will build a boat to ride the wave of their destruction. However, we the members of the 99% are not allowed on. I am not jealous of their dirty money. I will say to all, I am pissed. Bruce gets that! His poetic songs are the wakeup call, the sound of a trumpet cry, the voice of a despaired whisper that belts out what I see and feel every time I go to a gas pump, and so called experts say, "The recession is over and we as a country have improved in the last two quarters in the market place."
Are you freaking kidding me; am I talking to those people with their blinders on? I am compelled to dare you to take a ride, look around, get out of your BMW, Mercedes, etc. Take a walk down a street for 10 blocks and in a roundabout way get lost in an alley, take a whiff, look left, look right, and I bet you will see one of many homeless and desperate human beings who once worked in one of those empty buildings, or better yet they were once a coworker that experienced downsizing and were forced (fancy way of saying retired early). This same company (Rat) is now sending their work overseas because labor is cheaper. There are families that see their loved ones walking on the same path destined to be holding a cardboard sign in the streets begging for money to feed their children due to foreclosures and/or unemployment that has risen to record heights and has put the economy in a tail spin all the while the elected officials live in their little bubble world.
It has been said, "If we are to forget the past we are doomed to repeat." The facts that songs are repeating, not by choice, the same scenario of the past generation and singer/songwriters knew back then that the government was getting to big. Who owns Washington these days? You have to see the truth in the everyday reality of those in peril, what makes you get up in the morning, do you even care? I hope so!
I heard around the dinner table at my grandparents’ home in the early '60s, "Be happy and find your niche, don’t do what we did and went through." They spoke of The Great Depression. However, these same people knew what to do, they bartered sugar, flour, garden grown vegetables, chickens, lambs, milk, beef and other services like helping with home projects for other families who were in need. These people somehow lived within their means. Now all those goods I mentioned above have grown in price to 500% more, you do the math. I do not have the answers to solutions of those in need. However, the 1% need to be held accountable.
This, “I take personal for it is my soul light one of the 99% who believes ….” I need to end, I’ll use this:
We Take Care of Our Own
by Bruce Springsteen

I been knocking on the door that holds the throne
I been looking for the map that leads me home
I been stumbling on good hearts turned to stone
The road of good intentions has gone dry as a bone
We take care of our own
We take care of our own
Wherever this flag's flown
We take care of our own

Everybody else from Bruce's era are playing state fairs.something you will never see from the ESB

If you make more than $77,00 per year you can't go to his shows. Oh, wait a miunte his tickets cost to much too...
Start Conversation
Well said Glenn! This is why when the 1%'ers gain power they immediately strike at the Arts by trying to cut them from classrooms and remove the National funding. Because the Arts opens thinking and change lives. Harriet Beecher Stowe's Novel opened the eyes of a nation to the horrors of slavery. The music of the 1950's and 1960's fuel an era of change in culture and the civil rights movement and "The Rising" helped to heal a nation during a time of paranoia and fear. Hopefully "Wrecking Ball" will bring together the 99% that are being used, abused, and run over like worms on warm asphalt on a busy road during a rainy night and allow the majority rule with sense and compassion. If you don't stand for something, you stand for nothing at all.

Start Conversation
Ron, You are wrong. Saw him in Nashville a couple of years ago and it was only 75% full. He does not always sell out. You people in the Northeast may think he does because that's where he's from but many places on his last tour were NOT FULL and I predict even worse this time. Once we see what his play list is, we will know. Hopefully, he will entertain and quit shoving his politics down everyone's throat. I say this as someone who has seen him on every tour. However, this depressing stuff is getting old.
Start Conversation
Glen, Open your eyes. Bruce is a multi-millionaire living a multi-millionaire's lifestyle.
Start Conversation
Emily, I didn't know a typical multi-milionaire lifestyle consisted of going up on stage and giving all your heart and soul during more than 2 hours several days a week. You sould try that sometime, it's quite exahausting.

I like all the positive comments on This Depression, because after 4 straight listens yesterday morning before leaving for work, it's spirit stuck with me all day long. And I really like the new style of arrangements.

Joe71, your artistical analysis of Sprinsteen's work are very appreciated.

Dear Emily , my eyes are wide open . Sorry you can't make the show , sorry you don't like the new album , and don't quite understand what's wrong with a person working there tail off and being successful . I was not aware that Mr. SPRINGSTEEN was living this double standard life ! I'm aware of all the millions that he has raised for our VETERANS , A very great Parkinson foundation , His support of the hungry in our Great nation for over 40 years with local food banks . It's okay to not like his music , or fret over if the shows will sell out , or living like a millionaire ....?? I suggest that Bruce and the band should make you happy by charging $300.00 per ticket , do gigs in large Stadium' s , play for 90 minutes , and or lip sync the darn show . So Mr. SPRINGSTEEN & the E street band are a bunch of hypocrites . Is that the line ....Emily . I could care less on your facts that the tour won't do well , the album sucks , and I guess Bruce will have to go back to being a regular guy . HE IS A REGULAR GUY . please enjoy the band next week on Jimmy Fallon show ....all week long . You may want to contact a few folks that were helped out after the 9/11attacks . Ohhh the life of the rich and famous . Take care , be well . Dtl .
Start Conversation
Gee Emily , please go watch fox news . SPRINGSTEEN has always been an advocate . I can't help it that decent folks love the guy . Now some don't like his politics , per your post ......quit shoving politics down our whatever . Please help me out on the locations where I can get better seats . I'll get in my citation and be there . Thankyou Emily . God Bless .( just being a jet set millionaire )

@Emily; well you really got Bruce's fans fired up. As a matter of fact, I attended a show in Syracuse, New York in 1985. He was honored before the concert by the United Steel Workers of America. And guess what he was honored for......DONATING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO FOOD BANKS ALL ACROSS AMERICA! How much have you donated to food banks? And after he was honored he opened with a heart-shaking powerful version of Born In The USA. Then he proceeded to play 4 hours of solid rock and roll. And me being a amateur guitarist and songwriter singer, I can tell you it takes COURAGE to perform in front of people. You are worried the people won't like you or you are afraid of failure. So please don't post negativity towards a man who has given so much happiness to people who listen to his music. My hat goes off to any musician that takes the time to learn a craft and present it to the public.

As any fan who listened to the Tracks collection or to The Promise album knows, Bruce has often left great songs off of his "official" albums because they did not fit the theme or his feelings at the time. It's his life and career, so we can't get too upset. HOWEVER, it is frustrating that, if he has a great love song AND a mediocre song about economic (in)justice, he will use the mediocre song and leave the great song for some future release, as has been done in the past. I think the best music should rule-- he is, first and foremost, a MUSICIAN, but, unfortunately, this "blue collar rock icon" stuff has become the conventional wisdom, by many of those who love him and those who don't care for him. And maybe by the man himself. Van Zandt has made two fascinating comments in the recent past, first, that if someone has no Springsteen albums, then The Promise is the one that person should buy, and, second, that if he could choose one disc to play live, it would be Disc Two of Tracks. The common thread-- great songs, whatever their topic is.
Start Conversation
Blackscott, in vague reference to your comments to Bruce's album song selection. Bruce describes how comparatively easier or faster the process has become for him. I think the release of "outtakes", ie. Tracks, The Promise, etc. demonstrates that in many cases even though the original versions or starting points of the released songs were good, we definitely got the best versions. Case in point, "Racing in the Street". The Darkness album version is superior to The Promise version. I suspect that although we as fans are getting new material faster, Bruce is not taking the time to get to the best versions of these songs. Sometimes they improve when played during the live performance, but basically, to me anyway, his albums since Human Touch & Lucky Town resemble a collection of "outtakes". I do love this song however. Some of his "outtakes" like "The Fever" and "Murder Incorporated" were gems too.

so far from what I've heard the new music has stayed true to what I,ve come to enjoy about Bruce Springsteens music. Always touches your heart and mind. Going to buy this album .

We take care of our own when "our own" didn't even get a chance to buy tickets before they went on sale at "other sites."
Besides, it's not the same without Clarence.
It's just not.
Start Conversation
Anyone who doesn't like the new stuff, get out of the way and let the rest of us enjoy it. Go home and put on your old records and live in the past. If you don't let artists you love evolve, you are not a fan, let alone a "die-hard" fan."

When I first heard this song it was on E Street radio. I was in my truck and in a hurry to get to work. Just like some of the other people on this thread, I wasn't impressed with the song. But I just listened again and, Oh My God, it took my breath away. I've never agreed with Bruce's politics, but I've always respected the fact that he is straight forward with promoting his political views. From what I've heard so far, I think this album will be what every other Springsteen album is for me. Depending on what is going on in my life on any particular day, Bruce's songs and characters are beside me when I'm up or when I'm down. And, oddly enough, those exact same songs and characters that feed my ups and downs can also bring me up or back to center when the time is right. I can't wait for March 6 when we can finally put all of the songs from Wrecking Ball together in one place and let the whole story unfold at once. And I definitely can't wait to see how they translate live at the three shows I have tickets for so far. My brother turned me on to Bruce twenty years ago. He passed away three years ago, and Springsteen music, new and hold, keeps me connected to his memory because it makes me think about the conversations we had about the message in the songs, our great times together in The Pit at many arenas, and our great times together in the top row of many arenas.
