Springsteen's new song "Devils and Dust" appeared on AOL first listen the other day, and all in all I like it. Here is the link, ignore the lame ass "AOL music- first listen" voice overdub every thirty or so seconds, and tell me what you think.

The new album is going to be reminiscent of both "Nebraska" and "The Ghost of Tom Joad" in its acoustic, understated sound. I believe, though, there are a couple of rockers on the album. I like how the song builds through the end, and the guy sure can blow a harmonica.
I do wonder, though, if the "AOL music-first listen" backup singer will be joining Bruce on tour.

Hopefully it's closer to Nebraska (one of my all-time favourite albums) than Tom Joad, the anti-Nebraska. Whereas Nebraska is sparse but vibrant, Tom Joad was full of some of the most boring songs you'll ever hear.
The bottom line is that this album must be best experienced by listening to it in your car while driving down a country road at night.
