Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.5/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

If you want an epic sound, look no further. You've got the entire E Street Band (piano, horns, saxophone, 4 or 5 guitars- some sounding like a car engine at times, and bombastic drums), lyrics reflecting The American Dream and being overwhelmed with the shear volume of land and cities to explore, and Bruce's croons and cries for something more. The album is a flood of organic sound perpetuating through the listener's ears and memory, creating some of the more anthemic and eclectic songs of 70s rock n roll. If you don't think this is a classic, I don't know what I can do for you.

Best Tracks: Thunder Road, Born To Run, Backstreets, Jungleland. The entire record is a highlight.

It really is a classic album don't get me wrong.....but I also understand why some people don't understand the adoration it receives. I think you had to grow up in the era as a working class citizen to appreciate it's subject matter and truly relate to it. Despite that, one should still appreciate it's quality, but while I love the album, even I will admit that for it to be number 52 album of all time is a little crazy, and I get sick of it quickly after a listen or two. Frankly most of Bruce Springsteen's career is a little overrated, and core fan base is more fervent and loyal than Metallica fans and eat up everything he does. He writes great lyrics, but I think people conflate the quality of his lyrics and attitude with the quality of his music, which is underwhelming on several occasions.

The most emotional album ever made...
Some songs simply make me tear up, not out of sadness, but out of pure joy.

Nope... I can relate to some of the comments bellow. I as well find this record boring. I can understand how people find this and the whole '70s classic rock' amusing, but naah for me. I need something more from a "great" record. More innovative, creative sounds. This is very basic and boring, and I find his screaming very annoying. Than again, matter of taste I guess.

Iconic. Yes, "Born to Run" gets played to death, but "Thunder Road" and the underrated "She's The One" are on here too, and they're just as good.

Sorry Springsteen fans but I can only echo one of the comments below, I also don't get it, I also find this boring. The lyrics may be good, (I can see from the lyric sheet), but great lyrics alone don't make a great album. The title track is the one track I really like.

Great album. Highlights are Thunder Road, Born to Run, and Jungleland. The Boss sings his heart out in every song and the rest of the E Street Band is just as energetic. I have to say though, Clarence Clemons is the star of this album. Between the title track and Jungleland sax solos, this is arguably the greatest use of a saxophone in a rock album.
