The Boss of Blah

I keep hearing and seeing negative opinion on Springsteen's "The Rising." The put-downs are entirely appropriate, IMO. An opportunistic co-opting of national tragedy masquerading as tribute and healing. A thoroughly banal effort. For some reason, it reminds me of "Tears for Fears." It's about on that level artistically. It saddens me because I was big on the Boss for years. Maybe it's time for Bruce to run for Senator from New Jersey. The NJ Democrats sure could use some new blood.
