Classic, lovely riffs, and album rock definitive.
The album that made him personally I prefer the Darkness Album love the ending to Thunder Road, again not a bad track here its no wonder they call him the Boss
If I wanted an album to soundtrack the film of my life, this would be it. There was a poll done by Paul Gambaccini in 1987 where this album came 2nd to Sgt Pepper. That ranking better reflects its sheer majesty, atmosphere and downright brilliance. The number of "perfect" scores given to this album on this site tells its own story. Very few people can find much fault with what is, basically, a near perfect album. Anyone reading this review who hasn't yet heard this album - go and buy it now. It will keep you company for the rest of your life.
Great album! I was wrong when I said the Springsteen style wasn't like Meat Loaf.
I know I'm biased, but this album is magical. I live in Central New Jersey and was exposed to Bruce at a young age thanks to my dad playing really his Lucky Town and Human Touch records which came out when I was 3. But I also heard a bunch of other Bruce songs thanks to my dad and I have loved Born to Run (the song) ever since I was little. But as a little kid, you don't understand the lyrics but listening to them as you get older, you realize how great the lyrics are and how they capture the spirit of wanting to break free and just go anywhere on your own so well. This to me is the best song ever made by a US musician. It is such a powerful song and descriptions are great. "Sprung from cages on highway 9, chrome wheeled fuel injected and steppin out over the line" It's great.
A large theme on this album is growing up and trying to rebel and not be stuck in a dead end life that Bruce thought many adults were living and there may not be an album where it shines through more than this. Thunder Road, Backstreets and Jungleland are the other great tracks. Night and She's the one are both solid. And Tenth Avenue Freeze Out while not classic status in my opinion is still up there with the better songs this album has to offer. The one throwaway track is Meeting Across the River, but the rest of the album is so good in theme, significance and quality of song, it can easily be overlooked. I mean one bad song and it closes out with Jungleland which has to be one of the most unheralded songs of all time is fine by me. It may not be Bruce's best. Nebraska in theme and execution may be better. Born in the USA had more hits, but this album really showed you what Bruce was about and knew for himself there was a time his career would come to a make or break crossroads and he made it, thanks to this album, big time.
Not a springsteen fan, but this album is a great listen. Lot of hits here.
Literally one of the greatest albums of all time, my favorite by Springsteen. Each song offers something different while conveying a similar tale of desperation. Jungleland is my favorite song of all time, and it's not even close. The song offers such fantastic highs and lows. While that song alone should be enough to distinguish the album, Born to Run and Thunder Road are also fantastic, and the others are great too.
The screen door slams
Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch
As the radio plays...
A great album as far as I am concerned. Bruce was always better with the E Street Band. Will miss the brilliance of Big Clarence.
This record opened up the world for me. So epic, so bombastic, so real but yet so theatric and romantic. And has a piano ever sounded better?
