Favorite Bruce Springsteen Albums?

Please vote for your FIVE (5) FAVORITES

I'm going to start up a Springsteen survivor probably next week, but, as with the R.E.M. survivor, it seems the best way to get things going is to see what people like the most. A system, I suspect, will be more easily created with that information. AND like the R.E.M. survivor, I'm going with asking you to vote for your top five rather than just one favorite, for the sake of accuracy, and not a poll skewed towards one album or the other. I am going to, for the time, leave in the Seeger Sessions, but I would like feedback on that, if it seems like a waste of time, it's a waste of time, I think we all know "Froggie Went A'Courtin'" is not going to be in the top ten any time soon.

Anyways, please leave some comments, I've RUN polls for survivors in the past, but I've never run the survivors themselves, and while I'm sure it's not going to be the most difficult task of my life, I'd like to try and be accommodating.

I'm not skipping them altogether, but I didn't think they should be in this poll. If you're telling me Tracks is your favorite album, then...fuck I screwed up already .

Oh, ok. No, I just missed that part I guess.

I'm glad you'll include that stuff though, as a lot of it is excellent and will be interesting to see how it goes.

That's the main thing I'm trying to figure out what to do, is B-sides and stuff liked Trapped and Because The Night. I could Include American Land with the Seeger Sessions, but where does that stuff go? And there's a LOT of stuff on Tracks obviously, and I'm not all to familiar with it, so would it be in the best interest to just do 18 Tracks, some b-sides, and that stuff I mentioned?

Hmmm... I'm torn between The River and Human Touch... I'll listen to those and then vote.

I would do one poll for each Tracks disc, and the winner gets to move on, and that's it. It would take too long to do it otherwise.

I would then do one poll for miscellaneous b-sides and other songs that have been released but weren't on Tracks. Again, the winning song gets to move on.

And while it is a covers album, Seeger Sessions deserves inclusion.
