The song " Death to My Hometown " is an angry, thinly veiled protest song regarding the practices of Wall Street bankers and the economic crisis for which Springsteen considers them accountable.
The song features heavy Irish folk influences including a prominent tin whistle riff , as well as samples of Sacred Harp singing. The title track was originally written in commemoration of the then-pending demolition of Giants Stadium in New Jersey and is written from the stadium's point of view "I was raised out of steel here in the swamps of Jersey". The song " Rocky Ground " is perhaps the most experimental track on the album. While the song does recall Springsteen's previous work, such as the similarly gospel music —influenced " My City of Ruins " and the hip-hop tinged " Streets of Philadelphia ", it features a brief rap by Michelle Moore, a first for a Springsteen song.
The song features an atmospheric arrangement that includes a gospel choir and vocal looping the words "I'm a soldier" from the Church of God in Christ Congregation's recording of "I'm a Soldier in the Army of the Lord" are looped throughout the song. However, the tone of this song is much more optimistic than most of the previous songs on the album despite its somber arrangement, with Springsteen singing "there's a new day coming" in response to the Gospel Choir's refrain "we've been traveling over rocky ground.
The next and penultimate track, "Land of Hope and Dreams", continues the religious themes and more hopeful outlook with its uplifting lyrics and chorus that use an extensive train metaphor to express Springsteen's take on the American dream. The album's closing track, "We Are Alive," is a "campfire song" [ citation needed ] for ghosts of the oppressed, martyred strikers, protesters, and immigrant workers.
According to producer, Ron Aniello, "American Man" and a re-recorded version of " American Skin 41 Shots " were recorded for the album but not released. At Metacritic , which assigns a weighted average score out of to reviews and ratings from selected mainstream critics, the album received a metascore of 78, which is based on 41 reviews. However, Slant Magazine ' s Jesse Cataldo accused Springsteen of being "borderline jingoistic " and called his perspective " rose-colored ", writing that he "seems more concerned with overtures toward harmony than actual dissent, a newfound wishy-washiness that leaves him sounding entirely defanged.
The album debuted at No. Only the Beatles 19 and Jay-Z 12 have more No. President Barack Obama used "We Take Care of Our Own" as one of his top campaign songs and it was played during many of his re-election campaign stops including right after his victory speech on election night.

Wrecking balls are more likely to cause collateral damage, because it is difficult to completely control the swing of the ball. However, wrecking balls are still used when other demolition methods may not be practical, due for example to local environmental issues or the presence of hazardous building materials such as asbestos or lead.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Wrecking ball disambiguation. Wrecking Ball was originally called Force Field Grub , having started out as Nat Loh's creation but he couldn't finish the character.
Lead Designer Toby Schadt had a very particular vision for this character that he wanted to personally develop. The one ability that Nat had originally designed that did not quite make it through was the Power Belch. In the original design, it functioned much like the Mycon Podship 's semi-sentient Plasma ball attack. This was a small homing projectile that was very strong at its start and got bigger but weaker with time.
The inconsistent nature of its damage ultimately made that iteration of the ability a casualty of the design process. Possibly the most reckless of all the Skylanders, Wrecking Ball rolls into danger without thought for his own personal safety. This lively larva smashes anything in his path often by accident, and is always hungry, even when he's just eaten!
But when he was dropped in, the wizard was shocked to see the little grub devour all of the soup and emerge from the cauldron 20 times larger and with a long, sticky tongue. The poor old wizard was even more surprised seconds later, when Wrecking Ball proceeded to swallow him whole.
Eventually he ran, quite literally, into the powerful Portal Master Eon , who was intrigued by how he came to be and impressed with his unique abilities.
Once upon a time, Wrecking Ball was nothing more than a common or garden grub. His adventure began when he became a speciality ingredient in a wizard's magical stew. After being chucked into the cooking concoction, a curious occurence took place. The hungry little grub worm took a sip, and then a gulp, and ended up devouring the whole lot. When the wizard came in to check on his cauldron, instead of his tasty stew he found one enormous grub who had grown to over twenty times his original size.
And as Wrecking Ball was still a little peckish, he popped the wizard in his mouth too - only to spit him straight back out again even a grub's standard's, the wizard tasted like a warthog!
The story soon spread, raising smiles across the Skylands world."Wrecking Ball" originally was intended to be a song for Beyoncé, but as the writing process developed, authors Sacha Skarbek and Dr. Luke decided that it wouldn't fit for flakowalabemununalarmelniggbal.coiter Sacha Skarbek posted a message on his Twitter account: "Beyonce song now becoming a Miley Cyrus song?!!
