As the other reviews say this is the first album from the boss & the E street band, and it's got the same early sound which as The Wild, The Innocent & the E Street Shuffle, and which is lost in the production of Born to Run. The band incidentaly are truly excellent throughout the album, from the funky style of It's hard to be a saint in the city to the urgency of Lost in the Flood.
I strongly disagree with those who criticise the album for having simple, or bad lyrics. I think the songs have the classic springsteen mix of poetry and gritty realism as any of his finest works, you've really got to be looking for weaknesses to find any bad points, rather than enjoying the beauty of songs like Spirits in the Night of It's hard to be a saint.
As for the songs, the pick of the bunch for me is Lost in the Flood! If you're a fan of his urban epics, à la Jungleland or Born to Run then this song is simply awesome! The ultimate version of this is on the Hammersmith '75 live CD, it's so powerful it's incredible. Also It's Hard to be a Saint in the City, Spirit in the Night, Blinded by the Light and Grown' Up are the other real standouts, and are among my favourite Springsteen songs.
In summary, I would say if you like anything off Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town, anything before Born in the USA or rock music in general then this album really is essential listening!
The descriptive story telling that bruce is famed for was indeed there from the start,bruces lyrics filling up a canvas in the mind almost as he takes the listener around some of the haunts of his youth,the e street band were present here but werent asked to do anything magnificent,they just did what they did,later on they would become such a legendary backing band,the album contains some real solid work that is as catchy as it is profound,2.5 stars.
I abandoned Springsteen at this point, commenting that the guy was an imposter, only to return to his work a couple of years later after hearing the masterful Born To Run. Even today, almost forty years on, I still loathe Greetings and seldom do I return to it. The Wild and The Innocent, is equally as poor; but talent, as they say, will always rise to the top.
He's madly trying to get everything crammed into this album, probably 'cos he didn't think he'd make another lol.
I prefer this to most of his recordings, and its one CD where I'd not skip a track-simply my favourite is whichever ones playing.
You'll like its funky groove- but not if you like his later stuff _ I hate everything after human touch/lucky town releases- And like almost everything before - esp. nebraska and darkness and born to run and greetings you get the picture
