Great selection, lets have a second best of!
on 11 May 2001
This is about as good a selection as you are likely to see on a best of, especially considering the number of albums Springsteen has made. Choosing tracks from his colllection must have been an unenviable task. The first two albums are ignored, but at least that means the cd starts with the terrific Born to Run. Thunder Road is done better on Sprinsteen's live collections, but still deserves inclusion. New fans will be drawn to Born in the USA and Dancing in the Dark, but keep listening and there are other great songs here, such as the more moody Atlantic City and film theme Streets of Philadelphia. The four new tracks are ok, and shows Bruce is not being lazy, but perhaps the space could have been used for some of the classics that didn't make the collection. Its disappointing songs like Jungleland, Racing in the Street, One Step Up and Two Hearts miss out, but perhaps they might appear on a Best of the Rest in the future, that would be great. However, you simply can't give this cd less than 5/5, its one of the few best ofs around that is listenable from start to finish.
