5.0 out of 5 stars It takes a Leap of Faith. 16 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
If ever there was an underdog that need championing, then this album surely qualifies.Though not completely panned upon it's release, it was hardly held up to much critical acclaim either.Put out simultaneously with "Human Touch", that record in my eyes was the album the Boss felt he had to release, containing songs that he felt the public expected to hear, "Lucky Town" however feels and sounds like the album he wanted to make, or indeed maybe even needed to make.

In this respect "Lucky Town" is a very honest and personal record, detailing a specific ongoing portion of Springsteen's life, much like "Tunnel of Love" had done 5 years previously.Not only though is this (for the most part) a more upbeat, optimistic album , it also contain some of Bruce's best writing, the songs being full of memorable, meaningful couplets and verses.From the belting opening "Better Days", with lines line "I took a piss at fortune's sweet kiss, it's like eating caviar and dirt,it's a sad funny ending when you find yourself pretending, a rich man in a poor man's shirt", and the whole premise of "Local Hero", Springsteen is able to take a humble, almost self-mocking view of himself and his life up to that point.Both songs along with the title track, with it's opening lines of "House got too crowded, clothes got too tight,and i don't know just where i'm going tonight" suggest a man about to break loose, on the verge of something special.These feelings are encapsulated perfectly in the gorgeous closing song, where Springsteen sums up the prevailing mood, "Searching for My Beautiful Reward".

5.0 out of 5 stars Springsteen on top form 26 May 2007
By AJ
Format:Audio CD
I can only echo the sentiments of most of the other reviewers.

This is, according to the experts Bruce SPRINGSTEEN's weaker period. I can't help but think that those who knock this album haven't really listened to it. It's purely and simply vintage SPRINGSTEEN and is a pleasure from start to finish. Stand out tracks? well, more than one - my favourite being LIVING PROOF which has a terrific beat coupled with dynamic lyrics. Is there a rock artist whose words are so easy to identify with? I don't think so. BETTER DAYS is a great tune, as are LUCKY TOWN and LOCAL HERO which follow it. Not just a rocker though because BOOK OF DREAMS and BEAUTIFUL REWARD are great ballads.

If you are a SPRINGSTEEN follower and this album has passed you by, then give it another try. Honestly, this is pure 5 star material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Springsteen album! 17 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Bruce Springsteen has come very late to me... I'm already 50 and Springsteen was never my thing.
But on an evening, sitting relaxed, I put on a greatest hits-cd I once bought and I thought: this is big, this is amazing!
How could I 'ignore' Springsteen.
So I put everything on everything and ordered almost all The Bosses Cd's at Amazon. (they are not expensive at Amazon you know!)
LUCKY TOWN suprised me the most. To me, so far, it's the best BruceSpringsteen I heard.
The big wonder, the miracle came to me with his song The Big Muddy!
This is blues from an unknown Dimension.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why the bad press?? 27 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
Released on the same day as the awful Human Touch, this album has always been forgotten about. This is a shame, as there are some of Springsteens best ever songs on here.
Starting off with Better days, straight into Lucky town, the album rocks more than Bruce had for many years at this stage of his career. Why he feels the need to shout instead of sing I couldnt say, but this is what we have. Of the rockier tracks, the final Souls Of The Departed is simply brilliant...if only we had the E Streeters playing on it, but hey, we dont.
Living Proof, written about the birth of his son has some amazing lyrics, but the greatest lyrics are saved for the three ballads, If I Should Fall Behind, Book Of Dreams, and My Beautiful Reward. Springsteen is one of the few artists who could write 3 dimensional love songs, along with Costello and Dylan. Listen to the love in the lyrics in those three ballads...truly amazing.
If only we had the greatest band ever playing with him on this album it would be a nailed on 5 star album.
Dont allow the dreadful Human Touch to cloud your views, this is a great album, and deserves to be judges as such.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked classic 16 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Lucky Town was recorded when Bruce Springsteen went to the studio to wind up the recording of Human Touch and found the songs still coming. The result was that the two albums were released on the same day, with the intense and personal Lucky Town knocking its patchy, more commercial brother for six. Arguably for the first time, Springsteen had managed to write rock based material unmarred by the overblown honking that had spoilt earlier classics such as Born In The USA. The title track in particular is one of Springsteen's finest. Nobody else seems to rate Lucky Town but for me it's his second best record after Darkness On The Edge Of Town.
