"It is a mighty album for one and all...Beautifully constructed and delivered as only Springsteen can do, Devils & Dust is heartfelt and affecting in lyric, complemented musically with brilliant simplicity"
Five Stars - Scott Podmore, Sunday Herald Sun
"A mix of downbeat American stories and glad-to-be-alive rockers, this album is an amalgam of The Ghost Of Tom Joad and The Rising. And it works.. ultimately, he's made a rock record brimming with joy and optimism. His best album since 1987's Tunnel Of Love."
Four Stars - Jeff Jenkins, Herald Sun Hit
"There's nothing but joyous expectation...Low key and intimate, rooted in folk and blues, Devils & Dust is a masterful album of storytelling and of heart and bone."
Bernard Zuel, Sydney Morning Herald
"Like the blues, we're familiar with the song structures and the nature of the melodies. Springsteen's genius is his ability to seemingly inhabit the thoughts, hopes and fears of the men and women he writes about...More immediate than many of his albums, Springsteen continues to mine a rich seam."
Four & A Half Stars - Sean Sennett, Time Off
"Springsteen's ability to tell made-up stories that are truer than reality is exceptional!"
Clem Bastow, Inpress
"Bruce Springsteen's thirteenth studio album is, in many ways, his most conventional singer-songwriter record since his 1973 debut, Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. Devils and Dust is twelve songs of assorted vintage and narrative setting, rendered with a subdued, mostly acoustic flair that smells of wood smoke and sparkles in the right places like stars in a clear Plains sky."
Four & A Half Stars, Rolling Stone
"The songs here are character-driven parables that recall the material on 1995's "The Ghost of Tom Joad," with Biblical references and Spanish phrases sprinkled over a general Western milieu. The results, particularly "Matamoras Banks" and "Black Cowboys," will no doubt reward Bossologists, who can rake the lyrics for myriad meanings, as well as casual fans, who can appreciate the singer's always engaging voice in this stripped-down setting."
"The key to Devils & Dust, and why it's his strongest record in a long time, is that the music is as vivid and varied as the words. Unlike the meditative, monochromatic The Ghost of Tom Joad, this has different shades of color... It results in a record that's far removed in feel from the stark, haunting Nebraska, but on a song-for-song level, it's nearly as strong, since its stories linger in the imagination as long as the ones from that 1982 masterpiece (and they stick around longer than those from Ghost, as well)."
