The Ghost of Tom Joad

Somber and startlingly hushed, Springsteen’s first primarily acoustic set since Nebraska was no less unflinching or dark. Framed/inspired by its title character, it serves as a parched, narrative-driven consideration of poverty, immigration and the brittle troubles of Americans and Mexicans in the Southwest.
