I've always been curious about this, does USA just suffer a lot from being the "Popular" album or something? Among the fanbase, I mean.

It has "Glory Days" on it. It deserves to suffer.


I forgot to tell this story. I found Darkness at the record store a few days ago. Naturally, I was excited but cautious, so I took it up to the turntable to have a quick listen to see if it was in good condition. Took it out of the sleeve and it was a fucking Billy Joel LP.

If you ask me, Born In the U.S.A. is a great album. Only albums that I feel that are not doing well enough are Magic, Nebraska and The River. Also, I'm not Darkness' biggest fan but I understand it doing so well.
Also, I'm not as classy as some people to say that other are deaf for not agreeing, but I can't see how listen to the The River could be a bad experience. Of course, it's not every day that we can enjoy go all the way through a double album, but I think this album's balance is almost perfect.

I don't care for most of the songs on The River, I think it's too long, and it doesn't sound good to my ears.

That's how it could be a bad experience.

Well... damn, even I forget about the whole subjectivity of the stuff sometimes.


So, I'm impressed with so many people voting. I guess Bruce's survivor will be a little agitated then. At least, more than R.E.M.'s one.

Subjective, schmubjective. We all get a little riled up now and again about other people's opinions.

Like, a lot on this site. A LOT a lot a lot.

Oh, for fuck's sake. You're not deaf, but perhaps blind...? Go back and fucking read what I said, before making such a poorly considered and late-to-the-bandwagon remark. I'm talking about SOUND QUALITY, not song quality. Nobody's deaf for not agreeing with me that The River is too long, or something--it's just not possible to say that it is a well-produced album or that, in terms of engineering, it doesn't sound dated. It isn't and it does. There is no opinion, here. Just like Innocent, in fact, which is historically considered one of the worst mixed/mastered rock albums of the modern era (there's a reason why Born to Run sounds so different--it was because Springsteen had had enough). Here's where opinion comes in: I think that Innocent has songs that're so good that they can overcome the brutal production shortcomings; I think that The River has a few, but not nearly enough.

Thanks for playing.

The first two albums were recorded in a really shitty studio. So was the title track of Born to Run. It was the other seven tracks of Born to Run that were Springsteen's first recordings in a quality setting.

And yet, Wild & Innocent sounds pretty damn good for a non-remastered disc.

The studio couldn't have been that bad.

Was more what I meant. If it weren't for this forum I'd doubt I'd ever have heard of some of the others.

So, I'm going to start this on Monday. I'll work up what exactly I'm doing over the weekend, and will let y'all know Sunday night. Thank you all for voting, whatever the vote total is at Noon (CST) on Sunday, that's the final ranking I'm going to be using.

It's just a little bit sad to see Born in the USA and The Rising with more votes than The Wild...

Actually, the favorite R.E.M. albums poll had 67 different voters, easily trumping the 44 here. That said, I think the Bruce survivor will have a lot of support down the stretch, probably more so than the R.E.M. survivor.
