"I’m convinced it’s Springsteen’s best album in ten years, and I also think it’s among the bravest work that anyone has given us this decade. Tom Joad bears an obvious kinship with Spingsteen’s 1982 masterwork, Nebraska.
The musical backing is largely acoustic, and the sense of language and storytelling owes much to the Depression-era sensibility of Woody Guthrie. The stories are told bluntly and sparsely, and the poetry is broken and colloquial - like the speech of a man telling the stories he feels compelled to tell if only to try to be free of them." - Rolling Stone.
