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.

Springsteen's best and most influential album. Amazing album that really exemplifies rock n' roll.

Absolute classic in every sense of the word. 8 tracks have never held up better as a put together album. The boss perfectly flushes out the sound of being young and careless. The songs are so undeniably good its outrageous. Between "Thunder Road"(contender for best song ever imo), "Backstreets", Title track, and the epic closer "Jungleland"(also one of my contenders for best song ever), you have a perfect record.

Huh, I love Jazz influenced rock and horns, but I just can't fully appreciate this album for some reason. I really can't put my finger on why but it genuinely bothers me I can't.
