Four years on from Wrecking Ball's release it is still an album that brings me a whole lot of joy to listen to. Some of Springsteen's angriest work to date.

The Tour of course was totally incredible. I think between myself and my friends we managed to get hold of all but a few of the shows on Bootleg.
