As good as Darkness is I thought BTR would win this one easy.

For me, the essential Bruce albums are Darkness, Born to Run, Greetings, and the Rising.

Second tier albums are Born in the USA and Nebraska.

Everything else is somewhere down here.

So really, while Darkness is my favorite, I would have a really hard time choosing a number 2, 3, and 4.

I have The Essential (which has a few tracks from those albums) and I have far superior live versions on the Brucelegs. Plus, I'm still hoping those albums will be remastered, as I understand the sound of BTR is quite murky. While I don't mind that sound for Nebraska (which is also still high on my Bruce wishlist), I rather hope that say a sonically improved Born To Run will jump out of my speakers (instead of hitting a soft wall it does now a bit).

And oh, you may always come over here and get my butt to the record store. Please!

Actually the sound of ALL of Bruce's pre-Tom Joad releases is a bit murky

This is tough, but I have to go with Born To Run. Too many classics on there to ignore.

Not to go off topic, but I can't think of anyone whose catalog needs remastering more than Bruce and U2.

marty, i'm shocked! :shock:





(i'm aware that this thread is a page or two back but i'm bumping it anyway)

darkness on the edge of town.

i like 'thunder road' more than any song on it, but as a whole i like the songs better than born to run.

it's a toss-up between darkness and nebraska for which springsteen album is my favorite.

It's good to see I can still shock you!

Now, what if I say I also don't have Nebraska yet!

Born To Run.

I'm missing something with Darkness cos I just don't rate it. Many a Springsteen fans favourite and certainly the older folk. Although Racing..is still my favourite Bruce track of all.
