Though I do love Springsteen a tiny bit more each day I'm on this earth, I'm no uncritical fan. I would argue that, while he's never released a terrible Self-Portrait-like album, he's had enough critic-proof middling albums that new releases can be met with some skepticism. That said the lead-off single to the forthcoming Wrecking Ball, "We Take Care of our Own" sounds melodic, triumphant and like a big middle finger to the religion of Republicanism still gripping his land (and by extension much of our world). Rock on Bruce!
MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
