Bruce Springsteen is back.  His latest album — “Working on a Dream” — is acoustic and impressive.  The haunting in his voice is everlasting.

The best songs are — “Working on a Dream” and “The Wrestler” — but the most arresting song is one called “Queen of the Supermarket” and here’s a lyrical taste of the song’s story:

The definition of SuperGenius is in the choice of the imagination — and for Springsteen to share a hidden fondness he clutches for a woman working at the local supermarket — is a matter only the Gods can understand in the inspiration and one that we can enjoy in the encrusted recognition of the widespread demise of repressed, human, longing.
