Nebraska ~ Bruce Springsteen
5.0 out of 5 stars Classic masterpiece, 16 Jun 2010
One of my favorite Springsteen album, this one is a super-classic, you can't go wrong with it, especially if you're more on the 'just voice 'n guitar' side of it. That's where Ghost of TJ drew its roots from. Really mellow stuff.
I think as well it's worth checking out a Cd called 'Badlands - A tribute to Springsteen Nebraska', a very nice cover album with tons of famous artist on it revisiting and re-interpreting this classic album.
