You have not heard the true Bruce until you've listened to a genuine Bruce album.

I suggest you listen to Born to Run immediately.

Then listen to Darkness On The Edge of Town.

Then listen to The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle (my personal favorite album of all tiempo.)

Shazammm.

People might think it's a crime against Born to RUn, Born in the USA, The River, etc. But my favorite Bruce album has to be The Rising, it has so much resonance for a vareity of topics, but certainly hit coming out when it did.

Devils and Dust was also suprisingly rousing.

Born in the USA is the only Bruce album I don't really love.

I went with Arcade Fire.
The Bends is the best album on there, but I don't think much of Pablo Honey.
I think of Boy as a fair way ahead of October. The only U2 album that I give less spins than October would be Atomic Bomb.
Hot Fuss-Sams's Town, great fun, love them both, but yeah, not really in quite the same category are they....

And I agree, but I've always been so afraid of saying it around here: I find Bruce Springsteen to be good, but dull. Good in the way a Toyota is good. I'm going to get savaged for that....

It is something of a shame that Bruce is more or less defined by Born in the USA- a great album, but nowhere near the quality of Born to Run, Darkness, E. Street Shuffle, or The River.

I totally hear you. I still haven't heard Tom Joad or Tunnel of Love, but of everything else, Born in the USA is seriously my least favorite Bruce record.

Tunnel of Love is generally lauded by critics, and I personally feel that One Step Up is one of his finest songs. Tom Joad is essentially a sequel to Nebraska. If you are a fan, as I take it that you are, both are worth hearing.

I love me some Bruce.

The Rising is a great album, as is Born to Run. There's a bunch I haven't heard. I like the folksier stuff, too, like Tom Joad and Nebraska. And I loooove the recent "Seeger Sessions" CD.
