A week ago, some anonymous person dropped off a copy of Bruce Springsteen's upcoming Working On A Dream album on my desk. I wasn't sure I wanted to listen just yet: I pre-ordered my copy anyway, and even if I hadn't, I enjoy hearing albums on release day like I used to before I was involved in the entertainment business. I can't pretend that it wasn't fun getting stuff early, but that isn't really part of my gig anymore, and I'm glad to return to hearing new music at the same time as the rest of the world.

But, I cracked. The new album is great. I don't know if I love it as much as Magic, but it's pretty great. That's after two listens.
