Springsteen recently performed at the Presidential Inauguration and is set to perform at Super Bowl XLIII. His new album 'Working on a Dream' is earning exemplary reviews. In Brian Hiatt's 5-star Rolling Stone review of 'Working on a Dream,' he raves about its "romantic sweep and swaggering musical ambition."

People Magazine wrote, "With many of these songs itching to be taken on the road, 'Dream' continues the classic-Springsteen revival of 'Magic.'"

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly's Simon Vozick-Levinson's gave the album an "A" grade: http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20253916,00.html .
