Review

I´m more of a fan of Bruce Springsteen & E Street Band than his solo work, the albums The Boss releases with E Street Band gives you the full band feeling and most often also a bigger rock sound.
Bruce reunited E Street Band in 2002 on "The Rising" 13 long years after he split up the band in 1989, now they´re back together again with a new recording in "Magic" and I knew things were going to be good again when I heard the huge new single "Radio nowhere" on radio a few weeks back.
Every fan of working class AOR/AM rock with artists like Jimmy Barnes, Bon Jovi, John Cafferty and Robert Tepper who hasn´t already discovered Springsteen classics like "Born to run", "The River" or "Born in the USA" - just gotta get your hands of a copy of this new album.

Brendan O Brien who produced "The Rising" also handled the production duties behind "Magic" and it sounds so alive, the music really gives you the feeling of being in a huge concert hall and Bruce´s unique voice is as close to the listener he can get without being in the living room himself in person.

I won´t say "Magic" is as great as the 70´s/80´s classics with the E Street Band but it´s close, tracks like "You´ll be coming down", "Your own worst enemy", "Girls in their summer clothes" and "Devils arcade" do belong in a tour set list with the rest of his hits.
With a new set of strings on that Telecaster, Bruce has no problem of showing who´s still the boss.
