Working on a Dream album for sale by Bruce Springsteen was released Jan 27, 2009 on the Sony label. Overall, this is probably as close as The Boss gets to a pop album. While the somewhat anomalous "The Wrestler," the spare, acoustic-based theme from the celebrated film of the same name, is a trenchant look inside a troubled soul, a more light-hearted feel prevails throughout most of WORKING ON A DREAM. Muscular production emphasizes Springsteen's classic-rock leanings, but these simple songs of love and hope also bear bright pop hooks, and they wind up being nicely offset by a couple of raw, bluesy tunes before it's all over. Working on a Dream CD music is a 2-disc set. ...See Full Description

||Sounds like Bruce but also fresh and new|
Working on a Dream album for sale I have been a dedicated fan since the middle 1970's and have seen Bruce in concert 28 times since 1981. So yes I think Working on a Dream is excellent - if you like Bruce it is very upbeat, accessible, and mixed clean and friendly. But at the same time it does have some new sounds and arrangements that make it fresh for the long-time listener. There are extra keyboard and string section swirls - yes he has had that before but it sounds different here (especially on Outlaw Pete). The other new sound is the guitar - or more specifically the lack there of. I mean yes there are of course guitars, in fact probably 3 or 4 guitar parts on most every track. But for me personally, I am an old school air guitar fan (I can't play guitar hero to save my life, too much game in there for me). This is the first rock and roll record from Bruce that just doesn't have a guitar solo that screams out - all of the guitar is mixed in subtly and is blended in with a smoother tone. I have listened to WOAD over 40 times already, and the "no guitar solo" is the biggest change to my ears. My fave tracks at this time are Queen of the Supermarket, Surprise Surprise, and Working on a Dream. The DVD is very good - nothing too fancy, just 6-7 tracks played through in pieces during the recording process. It is fun to see the E Street Band sort out their parts after Bruce strums through a song on acoustic guitar. The focus is especially on building the track up from that strum, layering in the drums with the mighty Max Weinberg, the fluid and dynamic bass from Gary Tallent, and the piano from Roy Bittan. This is the first close-up glimpse of the E Street Band in the studio since the 1995 DVD Blood Brothers recorded during the brief sessions to add a few new performances to Bruce's Greatest Hits CD. Well done on the DVD, it is worth the extra cost and also has an extra bonus song called The Jersey Devil. Excellent disc from Bruce - he is a national treasure.

||Springsteen at just above average|
I can't say that this is one of Bruce's best, but it's a little better than his last couple of albums. It sounds like a mix of The Rising and Magic. The song,"The Wrestler" is the highlight of the album and is one of his best songs ever.
