Lush Americana. That's the only way to describe it. Bruce Springsteen's 19th studio album 'Western stars' is quite probably the loveliest of his career. The musicianship is bliss and the production is immaculate. Opener 'Hitch hikin'' sets the tone for the album as we and Bruce thumb ourselves along the highways and byways of backwater USA. 'The Wayfarer', the second track, is really what this album is all about. A gorgeous track with orchestration that lifts the song to a beautiful crescendo reminiscent of old western movie theme tunes. Other standouts are the typically Bruce 'Tuscon train', the brooding 'Stones' and the excellent 'Chasin' wild horses'. The best though is saved for last. 'Moonlight motel' is quite possibly the most achingly beautiful song of Bruce's almost fifty year career. It's just wonderful. The album isn't perfect though.'Hello sunshine' is okay but it is one of the record's lesser moments and was a surprising choice for first single to be released from the LP. That probably should have gone to the enjoyable 'There goes my miracle', a rousing Bruce anthem. The weakest track though is the rather throwaway 'Sleepy Joe's cafe'. It's harmless but it's too lightweight and just slightly tarnishes the album for me. But these are small quibbles. Springsteen is still at the top of his game, still moving on and most importantly keeping us interested and excited about every release. A new E street band album is expected next year but for now this will do very nicely.

Overall pretty good. Much better than High hopes and I expect it to grow on me with more listens. Moonlight Motel is amazing
