Bruce Springsteen's breakthrough album and his best. On 'Born to Run' a youthful Springsteen presents the sweeping storylines and hopeful lyrics that would come to define who he is as an artist. From the almost cinematic 'Thunder Road' to the epic finale 'Jungleland', there is not a single bad song on this record and does not wear upon relistening.

Born to Run is an iconic album, powerful and in some places genuinely inspiring.

A+

Highlights: Thunder Road, Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, Backstreets, Born to Run, Jungleland

The greatest album of all time? Possibly. The best from Springsteen? Of course. One of my favorites? Until I get deaf.

One of the big ones here; an almost perfect mixture of jazz and rock with one of the most passionate voices you will ever hear. All the songs are at least an 85/100, but the epic tracks here are some of the best in history, all with the right length and perfect lyrics. Key tracks: all of them!

All we are born to run!

When your album opens with one of the best, most inspiring songs in the world and it's still not the best track on the album, then you know you're in for something special.

Key Cuts: Thunder Road, Born to Run, Jungleland

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.

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. :)
