I would say try Live 75-85, or the last one he came out with-Live in NYC. You'd get a wide variety of songs, and could decide what you liked.

I've been a fan of his for quite a while, and I still don't own all of his albums. Born In The USA is one of my faves-also Born To Run. The 'darker' ones w/ more ballads like Nebraska are definitely worth listening to though.

Enjoy!!

I would suggest starting with "Born to Run" or "Darkness on the Edge of Town"

[color=royal blue]1. *twitch* that Springsteen was spelled wrong

2. I'd start out with the Greatest Hits CD. And then see which songs you like best and get THOSE CDs. *loveth* Nebraska too. And Born in the USA. And Born to Run. And-- I'm not helping...hehe

Normal i feel like such a traitor...

I bought Greatest Hits a while ago, but I still cannot get "into" Bruce. It's not that I don't want to....I just haven't been able to. *sigh* It doesn't do anything for me.

Don't worry, sula; we won't hold it against you. My sweet hubby has an active dislike for Bruce's music, and I still like him. My husband, I mean.

Born in the USA or the Greastest of Bruce are the best albums to start with!

Big Grin

My favorite SpringSTEEN album, by far, is 1987's Tunnel Of Love. The follow-up to the commercial smash Born In The USA, Tunnel is a largely solo affair, more stripped down and less immediate. Its potency, however, is undeniable and I know many Bruce fans consider it his masterpiece as do I. Should be required listening for anyone about to wed (lest they think its all a bed of roses).
