Indeed.

Speaking of men who can write a song, you need to do a Highway 61 Revisited diary tomorrow.

Hell no. Axver will absolutely detest the earliest stuff, as the first album is too folky and the second album too, well, jazzy I guess.

The obvious starting point is Born To Run. Darkness On The Edge Of Town has more of an edge and might be another one to check out.

Also, perhaps the latest album, Magic. As I recall, you seemed to be taken by surprise a bit when you heard Devil's Arcade from pfan's playlist, although I don't know if that was a good surprise or a bad one.

Oh, and one more to throw out there - Nebraska. Stark, acoustic record with very dark lyrics. You might enjoy that one.

I think Khan can handle the going in order better, but Born to Run seems to be the logical starting point for pretty much everyone. After that, depends on your tastes. Magic and Darkness are two good calls.

I want to hear Nebraska. I love the idea of a full album recorded almost in one day.

i usually prefer to listen to people in order, because i like hearing how they progressed over the years. unless i'll absolutely hate their early stuff, that's how i roll. i've heard blinded by the light (obvs i mean his version, but who hasn't heard manfred mann's) and it wasn't bad. unless the rest of the album is drastically different, i don't imagine i'd hate it.

Khan actually might be better off going backwards. I'm not sure she's into 70's rock as much.

Righto, downloading Born To Run now, and will move onto Darkness On The Edge Of Town once it's done. And I know for sure that I haven't heard Nebraska, so I'll give it a shot.

As for Devil's Arcade, it simply wasn't how I expected Springsteen to sound. Had I heard it without it being labelled, I'm not so sure I would have said it's him.

No way in hell you hate E-Street Shuffle, and you'll probably find something to love in Born To Run. Go in order.

The Professor is such a great pianist.

(I'm listening to Born to Run now and just started Thunder Road.)

Well, you know. Classic rock. I'm not sure which way you go. You can't stand Floyd, but then you don't mind the Stones, so it could be hit or miss, right?
