BRUCE Springsteen is never predictable - that's one of the things that's kept him fresh in more than 30 years of music-making.

And his latest album, which focuses on the folk tradition, and particularly the work of Pete Seeger, marks another departure for this versatile rocker. This is not the Springsteen of Born To Run, or even Nebraska - or is it?

His musical heritage leads right back from those milestones to this album, which works beautifully.

Springsteen and his band bring new life to these old tunes, and show that rock and respect go together.

A musical treat.
