#Bruce is my main man #first love
Let me just give you brief reviews of each early major album, in chronological order.
- Greetings from Asbury Park -
Columbia Records tells us ‘Here is an eclectic singer-songwriter that might be the closest thing we’ve seen to Bob Dylan.’
- The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle -
It turns out that, unlike Bob Dylan, this Bruce guy can write whimsical, epic songs AND deliver an electrifying live show like no one we have seen.
- Born to Run -
A bombastic, audacious rock album that was designed to “explode in people’s living rooms” and be played in cars from coast to coast.
The prototype sound for epic rock with an r&b flair.
- Darkness on the Edge of Town -
After the massive hype and success of Born to Run, Bruce found himself screwed over by a former manager and forbidden to record new music for a few years. During this time frame, Bruce doubled down on his epic live shows and wrote new material that reflected the working-class issues that affected his upbringing and his worldview. Eventually it was discovered that he was so prolific during this time frame that another (high-quality) full length album would be made from tracks that were not selected for it.
- The River -
One of the most beloved performers in rock is starting to see all of his friends settle down and this double album is heavily centered on the contrasting feelings of youthful exuberance and gradual maturity.
- Nebraska -
An inner discontentment eats away at Bruce and the characters in his music, more so than ever before and Bruce responds by recording a sparse acoustic album that remains as dark and emotionally affecting as much of the grunge and emo music that would eventually be inspired by it.
- Born in the USA -
An album with a radio-friendly sound that became a bestselling classic, with themes of Americana, gradual maturity and discontent.
- Tunnel of Love -
After his first marriage wasn’t working out, Springsteen explored the relations between two people with this album.
These are just the first 15 years of his recordings, but they are the classic, must-listen to era that every music fan should be aware of.
