Bruce Springsteen's most iconic album, and his breakthrough. It's amazing to think now, that he could have been dropped from his record label if this album had flopped. Fortunately for Springsteen and for us, it didn't, and we have one of the greatest careers in rock/pop music to enjoy. Born to run, Bruce Springsteen's most important record kicks off with the stunning, thunder road, my all time favourite track, ever, but this is different to it's predecessor. Bruce isn't happy treading the boardwalk anymore, he wants to get out, 'cos he's scared he ain't that young anymore. Next up, it's the semi-autobiographical, tenth avenue freeze out, where the E street band gets together, where the 'big man' joins the band. The frantic, night, gives way to the friendship epic, backstreets. The title track shows Bruce with a little more faith, as he still believes he is still young enough , but he still wants out, although to what?, he doesn't know, after all, he thinks of himself as a tramp. After what's gone so far, she's the one, feels a little lightweight lyrically, but it's still an excellent bluesy rocker. Meeting across the river, shows two down on their luck hustlers, determined to make it right this time, show 'em all, especially the narrator's love interest . This brilliant album ends in breathtaking style, with the epic, jungleland. It's Bob Dylan and Phil Spector re-writing west side story. It's glorious, and features surely Clarence Clemon's greatest and most iconic solo on a Springsteen track. And that's it, that's what all the fuss is about. It's a masterpiece, it's a highway 61 for the seventies, it's born to run.

There's a pretty good chance I don't get this music. I like a song that doesn't have the top ranked badge, yet am not crazy about the songs that are?

A great album with a one of the most geniune perspectives of an average blue collar guy. Lots of attitude and passion.

Maybe even the greatest album of all times. Perfect lyrics, fantastic mixture of rock, blues and jazz, upbeat and downbeat songs about love, about working hard, about growing up, about despair. Anyone who would give this album less than 90% has literally no taste at all. :)

Finally arrived for The Boss. If his other work is as good as this, I'll be a fan before long.

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.
