And oh, a BTW to my answer, Nebraska is higher on my list of non-remastered albums to get.


(or should that be a double ?)

I agree. I'd love a nebraska remaster.

As for recommendations, like everyone has said so far, Nebraska and Darkness on The Edge Of Town, are two of my favourites.

Nebraska, Darkness, etc.

All great stuff, but then again I love me some Bruce.

Born To Run
Darkness On The Edge Of Town
Born In The USA
The Rising

Any of those will be a good start really, they are all filled with great music. You can't go wrong with any of them, BITUSA is the only one that has a more pop 80's sound but still a lot of stuff that you'll like. Personally I think you should sart with Born To Run, I consider it to be his best. Remember on his induction spech for U2 he mentioned Born To Run on that list of the greatest classics ever! Let us know which album you will buy!

The four that TheBrazilianFly mentioned are definitely the most accessible, though I like Nebraska, Joad, and Greetings just as mcuh

I got into Bruce last year and my starting point was The Rising.

Also you will probably recognize several songs from Born in the USA as it is his biggest album.

good point about tunnel of love. unfortunatly my copy is on vinyl, so i only get to listen to it when i'm home. and my record player has recently grown legs and walked off to the living room, so that cuts down on what i'm able to listen to (family watching tv, studying, using my stereo for bad things).

It's kind of frustrating when you can hear a previously unreleased song such as Loose Ends off of the Tracks box set and note how much better it sounds over a classic album cut like Incident On 57th Street or Racing In The Street.

rather irrelevant off-topic-ness:
loose ends has provided me with what is probably my favorite ever misheard lyric. for some reason, despite the fact that i know the line is, some part of my insists on singing "we poured some liquid tide around our necks" in the chorus everytime i listen to it.



edit: you mean "sounds better" in terms of audio quality rather than song preference, right? i was going to say something else, but that would be even more irrelavent than my comment on loose ends.

I know it went a bit off-topic, but I was basically agreeing with Popmartijn that a remastering of the albums is desperately needed.

Yes, I was referring to sound quality when talking about Loose Ends.

the dvd are really good too, most songs are always rendered on tour but for the most part they are more exciting and better sounding than on record. and what energy the man has onstage

i wasn't accusing you of off-topic-ness, i was providing a disclaimer for my post.
