Bruce Springsteen has long been the counselor and conscious of the American zeitgeist, using a few simple chords to open dialogues about Vietnam vets (Born in the U.S.A.), the AIDS epidemic ("Streets of Philadelphia") and post-9/11 solidarity (The Rising). No surprise then that Wrecking Ball's ruminations on income disparity, institutionalized greed and the gap between the haves and have-nots is an apt reflection of the angry American psyche. "If I had me a gun," he growls at one point, "I'd find the bastards and shoot 'em on sight." His modern discontent is often framed with antique style (in place of the triumphant E Street Band are touches of Celtic folk, bluegrass, early rock and gospel), helping Springsteen emerge with yet another of the topical, relevant records on which he's built a career.
