Jon Landau, Springsteen's long-time manager, said: 'Bruce dug as deep as he could to arrive at this vision of modern life. The lyrics tell a story that you don't hear anywhere else. and the music is the most innovative he has made in recent years. The compositions are among the best of his career, and both early fans and those discovering Bruce for the first time they will have many reasons to love Wrecking Ball".
