Wrecking Ball, Bruce Springsteen

Wrecking Ball is Bruce Springsteen’s 17th album. It has made headlines for being the voice of the 99 per cent in response to the Great Recession. The release has been labelled adventurous, heartwarming and ambitious. It is significant in how it seems to cement its place in American history – there are no limits, and endless lyrics reflecting the 2012 election campaign, immigrants and workers. Ultimately, the record presents hope and optimism, central American values.
