Bruce Springsteen - where to start?

I only know a few songs: Born in the USA, I'm on fire, Sad eyes, Secret garden, Human touch and Philadelphia - my faves being Sad eyes and Secret garden.

Should i buy some Best of or cut to the chase and go for The rising?

I'd recommend "Born to Run" or "Darkness on the of Town" as a first album.

Definitely get The Rising when you go buy your "Starter Kit". You won't be sorry.

If you do nothing else, run out and buy The Rising, find your significant other, put on "The Fuse," and get ready to make some sweet New Jersey style love.

As someone who's never owned a Bruce album until yesterday, I'll put in my 2 cents and say that The Rising is a great album.

And if Bruce's best of even halfway approaches Tom Petty's best of in terms of every single song kicking ass, then I'm gonna have to get that one too.

In terms of Best of's, Tom Petty's is by far my favorite.

The greatest hits doesn't have Sad Eyes or I'm on Fire, so don't buy it if those two songs are near and dear to your heart.

It's got most of his hits from the 1980's with a handfull from the 1970's and four new tracks, one of which is Secret Garden.

Overall, it's the best cd for your money, but it is missing Tunnel of Love, I'm Goin' Down, Cover Me, War, Dead Man Walking, Candy's Room, Prove it all Night, Fade Away, Rosalita, and countless others that belong in his gh.

Born in the USA, Born to Run, and The Rising would be the best trilogy in my opinion.
