Why only five stars?,
This review is from: Born to Run (Audio CD)
One of the greatest rock albums ever. A work of art. Most artists would kill to have written the weaker tracks, and to have Thunder Road, Backstreets, Born to Run itself and Jungleland all on one album is unbelievable. An album for all ages, all moods, all time. Too many five star reviews are handed out too easily. 25 years on, this is worth every star and more. It's easy to forget that when he wrote this masterpiece Bruce was barely known. The confidence and authority is astonishing. Rolling Stone were famously moved to say they'd seen the future or rock n roll, and how right they were. I know some take The River as their favourite Bruce album but for me - like many doubles - it has a bit too much padding. This is the one.
