Born To Run Vs. Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Which is the better album? I think it's Born To Run simply because it has more classics. I mean: Thunder Road, Born To Run, Backstreets, Jungleland and She's The One. That's hard t beat! Darkness is a great album and I LOVE all the songs there but BTR has that iconic and epic feeling that is irresistible!!

Darkness
Adam Raised a Cain and Candy's Room are enough to win without any other songs.

Darkness is a perfect album. Born to Run is close. Very, very close. Both of them are wonderful conceptually, so based on individual songs, I'm partial to Darkness.

Oh shit. This is a hard one, but I think I'll have to go with Darkness. That's the one that really got me into Bruce when it came out. Although She's the One is my favorite Bruce song most of the time.

Oh, hi Martha! Just wanted to say the CD arrived, and I love the postcard.

Thanks!

I should have added that one there, sorry. Nevermind now, I'm glad people are posting.

I won't vote.
Not only because of something I have to be ashamed of (or rather, two things I have to...), but also because both are just so damn good.

Can't choose.

Marty!

Haven't we talked about this? Do you need me to come over there and get your butt to the record store? Well?

For me it's Born to Run without a doubt. I adore that album. If I had to pick only one Springsteen album to listen to it would be Born to Run. I remember when it first came out... I was hooked right awayand I still think of it as the iconic Springsteen album.

Born To Run. Every single track is special and stands out, while Darkness has a few that aren't quite as memorable.

Same here. It was Spirit in the Night that got me into Bruce but when Born to Run came out I died and went to heaven. On some level I think that Darkness might be a better record (if a gun is pointed to my head and I have to pick) but Born to Run will always mean more to me.
