His new record is reviewed at length by Christiane Culhane in the New Republic (subscriber-only):

It is Springsteen's characters that have sustained his devoted following and Devils & Dust doesn't shy away from a broad cast: we're brought into the minds of soldiers, lovers, mothers and boys... The album's eponymous first track follows the internal struggle of a soldier; unsure of what is before him he looks into the eyes of an Iraqi and sees "devils and dust."

Worth reading in conjunction with David Hajdu’s overview, published in the same magazine a couple of years ago.
