Hilburn spent an entire page writing about the words of Bruce Springsteen's new album and failed to write more than one sentence about the music.
Hilburn should review Springsteen as a musician who writes lyrics instead of making him sound only like a poet. It looks like after getting the new album he threw away the record and reviewed the lyric sheet.
Well, maybe Hilburn is admitting something that I've known for years: There is no need to review Springsteen's music because it's all the same. The only thing that changes are the words.
