Okay, screw it, here's my list:

1. Nebraska
2. Magic
3. Born In the U.S.A.
4. The Rising
5. The River

EDIT: Wow, only six votes for Nebraska? That's surprising... I guess.

I'm blown away that The Rising beat Born in the USA and Darkness. Though I'm not a big fan of the former so that's kind of cool.

For me:

1. The River
2. Tunnel of Love (this should have more votes, even if it's not E-Steet)
3. Born to Run
4. The Rising
5. Darkness on the Edge of Town

Of all of Bruce's album, Tunnel of Love is my favorite to listen straight through.

Yeah, that was my thought, too, but then everyone was all "No no no, there's no WAY he's NOT going to PLAY it because sports theme yada yada yada"

Annoying people are sometimes correct.

The music and production on most of that album is bad. Dancing in the Dark? Could that sound any more dated and cheesy?

Dancing in the Dark reminds me of Elevation in that I bet diehard Bruce fans fucking hate that song....yet, in concert, everyone seems to be singing along.

I'm not a fan of the song, but I really did enjoy the live versions I heard on bootlegs from the last tour or two (?).

Born in the USA would be higher on my list if it weren't for that cheesy 80s sound that permeates the whole thing. Great songs.

I think Nebraska is really good and I love its mood, but the inidividual songs aren't some of my favorites (except the title track and Atlantic City, which I love), so it's not an album I pull out that often.

The thing about my Top 5 is that it should really be a Top 8, with Nebraska qualifying. Boy, do I need to be in a certain mood for that album, but when I am, it's perfect.

I've always liked Acceleration (new SC title). I prefer it to Beautiful Shot.

It does not, though, seem to be wildly popular amongst most die-hard fans. I could be wrong, but that's my recollection. Acceleration is an REM album, you do not mind the cockflict?

Yeah, it does seem to get a lot of hate. Of course, so does Who's Gonna Serve Your Wild Shuttles (another new title), and that's one of my favs.

I don't mind. I mean, the alternate was Ejaculation and I chose badminton over cock.

I don't really like Elevation or Beautiful Day all that much, but both are ok in concert. Wild Horses, though, I like very much, but then again I more or less love everything on AB, even if they should have let PFan produce the album.
