Bruce Springsteen's new album "Letter To You" comes as a surprise. But those who expected a real political album like "The Rising" after the 9/11 attacks in Corona and US election campaign times, will be disappointed. Although it is not a "letter" about the current state of the world, "Letter To You" is an album full of wisdom, on which the musician deals intensively with his past. And there is no reason for disappointment: Even if the snowy cover may evoke other associations, this musical "writing" is probably the most energetic E-Street band album since "Born In The U.S.A.". We go on a search for clues and shed light on the painful creation process of "Letter To You", dedicate ourselves to its heavy topics, the top-class songs and its special sound.
