Frankly, its sheen is off-putting at first. But once you settle in, the set reveals some of Springsteen’s most beguiling work ever. The narrator of Drive Fast (The Stuntman) - in an echo of Springsteen’s theme song for Mickey Rourke’s The Wrestler - is a fellow has-been who laments, I got two pins in my ankle and a busted collarbone/A steel rod in my leg, but it walks me home. Against a backdrop of 2019 America, and sung by a man who turns 70 this fall, the music’s metaphoric thrust - tough-guy actors whose time is nearly past - is obvious. A number of the songs here straddle the classic and the cliché, as country songs often do, though they’re not country, exactly.
It was produced by Ron Aniello, who worked with Springsteen on his two previous albums: Wrecking Ball (2012) and High Hopes (2014). The album marks Springsteen's first new studio album of completely original material since Wrecking Ball.
