I listened to this album a little while ago, but I have had so many writing projects that I am falling behind.  Any further discussion on my current workload will lead to tears, so let's just move onto Nebraska.

Finally, we reached the end of our horrible streak of albums.  I didn't think I would connect to this, as my understanding of Bruce Springsteen was that he was the working man's hero.  Fortunately, this was just beautiful.  It was so simple; just his vocals, a guitar, and a harmonica (that made not be correct but that's what I heard).  You could really just focus on the lyrical quality of the songs, which was excellent.  Who knew Bruce Springsteen was such a poet?  Everyone, you say?

Highly recommended.

RATING: 5/5
