American Babylon found them teaming up with Bruce Springsteen, who handles production, plays on several tracks, and wrote two songs for the album. One of the songs, the opening "Dark And Bloody Ground," is the strongest song on the album, both lyrically and musically. The song is a passionate tale of the plight of Native Americans and makes a serious impact. The title track is an uptempo rocker detailing the disintegration of societal mores. There's nothing new under the sun on American Babylon.

The fact that Bruce produced and played on the album and wrote a few of the songs, didn't hurt. I haven't heard any of Grushecky's other material but if you're a Bruce fan like me you want to get your hands on anything he is a part of. I've only listened to it a few times so far but I've really been enjoying it.
