    Wow. This is the only Springsteen album I actually like. Pretty decent for a 60-something.

    And Akayz7, let's not forget Bruce is 63, his voice won't be the same as it was when he recorded Born in the USA

    I like the way it's produced, Bruce sounds great in this one!!

    it's such a shame it's overproduced/loud, it could really have pushed Darkness at the Edge of Town. What they did here was make everything sound linear and lack any dynamic quality that good albums of his have.. in Born in the USA, his voice really blasts through the speakers. In this though... it's like the vocal is on the exact same level as the instruments.

    Think I've come around to liking "Wrecking Ball" more than "Magic" (just in time for Monday's show). Works in the balance of angry and joyous folk he struck on "Seeger Sessions" so well.

    Indeed an amazing album. I think I like it more than "Born in the U.S.A.".

    in my opinion overrated. solid album with nice songs, but his other albums are far ahead of wrecking ball.

    Same here Akayz7, wasn't familiar with anything past 1990 but I decided to give this a spin. Needless to say I got all his albums up to Wrecking Ball.

    well.. regrettably i haven't heard anything of his from the last 20 years in terms of albums.. but WOAH this is amazing.

    Feels somewhat overproduced... but it's pretty majestic.

    really kicks in death to my hometown onwards, still bruce by numbers, but with more feeling from this point on, not just bombast.
