What's wrong with the third best track on the 7th best album ever?

Haha, some of those comments could have been made by me for Dark Side. I have a love/hate thing with it. I've been on both sides of the fence, and not even sure what side I sit on now. I guess I think it's good, but not remotely the "masterpiece work of mindblowing art" Pink Floyd fans think is.

It's not lyrically brilliant like Discotheque and Vertigo

#5 - Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run



Great album. And I'm sort of cheering for it, considering #5 all time is borderline absurd.

Quote:
I certainly know what it's like to be born to run. I was born to run away from primitive blue-collar rock such as this. Bruce is strictly peasant material. His face shows it, his music shows it, and his fans show it.
Quote:
Maybe one of the worst albums i have ever heard. Maybe the lyrics are good but i couldn't even listen' to them. Why does he have to raise his voice everytime.
It was like when I'm listening to R&B, why do they always have to make they're lyrics so dramatic?
Quote:
The album goes downhill midway through "Thunder Road" and never recovers. The most saturated-sounding rock record I have ever heard, bombast or not. I did like "Meeting Across the River," though.
Quote:
Overrated shit!
The album was saved due to the popularity of the single Born To Run but is there anything else on the album other than a Bob Dylan wannabee bastard who is wining and trying too damn hard!
A credit must be given for 2 songs other than the overplayed single, Jungleland was pretty decent until the 4th listen when it then becomes too long and the song Thunder Road!
If you are new to bruce, get the Greatest Hits package, you don't need anything else!
Quote:
American trash, strong anglophile orientation. I'll stick with Bob Dylan, thanks. Gets two starts because, whoever produced this album, did a good work. Sadly, it's like Schumacher driving a Beetle. But americans also won't have a clue of what I'm talking about, since they don't know who Schumacher is, (and probably don't know what is a Beetle either).

Yeah, I have a love/hate thing with all of Pink Floyd's stuff really. And especially DSOTM. But right now they're on my good side. I think I even slipped DSOTM into my Top 50.

It is a big honking cliche, sacred cow though.

Oh come on, there is no way Born To Run is even half the album UF is.

I kind of have just an uncomplicated hate thing.

If TUF was my #1, and BTR was my #2, does that technically mean that BTR is EXACTLY half the album that TUF is?
