Bruce Springsteen/ Reason to Believe

Reason to Believe is the final song on Nebraska, the end piece to Bruce's dark, soul-searching journey and should give an indication of what he found at the end of the road. Perhaps this is why the interpretations of Reason to Believe are so starkly divided - critics and listeners are looking for one song to sum up the "meaning" behind an entire album. That is a lot to ask of any song, but Reason to Believe is an enigmatic powerhouse that lends itself to debate. For most, the question is whether Reason to Believe is a pessimistic or an optimistic summation of the album.
