Bruce Springsteen - Your Own Worst Enemy

“You can’t sleep at night, you can’t dream your dreams. Your fingerprints on file left clumsily at the scene. Your own worst enemy as come to town.” A slow rocker that has the narrator looking deep into himself for answers and ending up with anxiety. Very interesting narrative with some interesting band interaction makes for a rock ballad that hovers on the edge of sadness (singer) and joy (band). Very cool combination, which gives lots of tickles to the aural cavities of this eartaster. A shoutout for the title tune, Magic – “Trust none of what you hear and less of what you see” and the single, Radio Nowhere – “I was driving through the misty rain searchin’ for the mystery train, boppin’ through the wild blue trying to make a connection with you.” Bruce Springsteen
