Bruce Springsteen is back. And according to fan and detractor alike, he's
angry as hell.

Given the times in which we find ourselves, this should be unsurprising.

What is surprising, however, is the musical method he's chosen to express
this anger: a sound and structure that is at once vintage Springsteen and
new territory for the Boss.

“Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity’s
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

“The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
