Released in 1973,this debut is rough around the edges in parts but contains some notable jewels for sure.
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.
