Bruce Springsteen: ‘We Take Care of Our Own’

Only a fool would miss the irony of the title of this song. If the rest of Wrecking Ball (to be released on March 6) is anything like "We Take Care of Our Own," it’s exactly what these times demand — pounding drums, chiming guitars, glorious backup singers and one great performer pointing a righteous finger and offering a vision of better. My hope is that this CD will cut through the bullshit and drop the heartless to their knees. But even if Bruce only preaches to the choir, it’s nice to hear some high-energy sanity. For now, this heats the blood.
