Trashing The Boss

Bruce Springsteen in a garbage can is only one of the Ten Things You Didn't Know About Bruce Springsteen. Those nuns, you have to watch 'em, one once hit me (several times) on the head with a window pole when I was in second grade, but I probably deserved it.

Springsteen's new album The Rising underwhelms me. To me, it's overproduced and has the dated sound that made "Born In The USA" seem forced 15 years ago. There are still a couple of strong songs like "Counting A Miracle" on the album, but the overall effort bores me to tears. Call me a codger, but I miss "Nebraska" Bruce and "Darkness On The Edge Of Town" Bruce...

A disclaimer: the first record I ever bought was "Born To Run", so I used to be a fan.
