Just how much American myth can be crammed into one song, or a dozen, about asking your girl to come take a ride? A lot, but not as much as romanticists of the doomed outsider believe. Springsteen needs to learn that operettic pomposity insults the Ronettes and that pseudotragic beautiful-loser fatalism insults us all. And around now I'd better add that the man avoids these quibbles at his best and simply runs them over the rest of the time. If "She's the One" fails the memory of Phil Spector's innocent grandeur, well, the title cut is the fulfillment of everything "Be My Baby" was about and lots more. Springsteen may well turn out to be one of those rare self-conscious primitives who gets away with it.

Some of my favorite songs, some of my favorite lyrics, some of the most emotive performances in the history of rock music. Not only Bruce's best album, this is a crowning achievement in the singer/songwriter catalog.

This album helps prove 1975 is one of the greatest years in music.

Jungleland, Born to Run, Thunder Road & Backstreets...all on the same album. Easy to understand why this album is so iconic.

If this album has filler, then it's the greatest there is.

You gotta be in the right mood for this stuff. I don't think it should be as critically acclaimed as it is, though certainly its popular acclaim is not unwarrranted. I think you sort of have to be unreflective and riding on your feelings. Then "Born to Run" and "She's the One" are pretty magical.

Overall not a Springsteen fan...

Great great album classic tracks & the "filler" material works very well also. A masterpiece of a work. Fav tracks: "Born To Run" "Thunder Road" "She's The One" "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out" & "Jungleland". The Boss's zenith period. Essential for any collector. MEZ
