yeah, magic might be my favorite album of his ever actually. i'm a big fan of 2000s e street band; it's probably a 3 way tie between magic, born to run, and darkness.

Your Own Worst Enemy is one of the best. And then from Mary's Place to My City of Ruins on the Rising is just holy crap level stuff.

I thought The Rising was the best since the reunion with the E Street band. Theres only really The Fuse that I would consider a skipper and occasionally Paradise perhaps. Magic was good though but it isn't as long and is perhaps let down by a couple of songs in my opinion - Girls In their summer clothes is a bit cheesy and to be honest I'm not keen when Bruce gets political and wasn't mad on Last To Die. I think Working on a Dream was a little too fluffy at times. Some good songs but Queen of the Supermarket, What Love can do, This Life and Life Itself let the album down I think. I put this down to releasing it so soon off the back of the Magic album and maybe another 6 months or so and he might have had a few better ones to put out.

The Rising is definitely an incredible album. The title track, Lonesome Day, and Mary's Place are probably my favorites. There's just something about Magic though that strikes a chord with me, and I really like Girls in Their Summer Clothes, even if it is one of Bruce's more sappy songs. I especially like the lines "A kid's rubber ball smacks/ Off the gutter 'neath the lamp light." A good song about the innocence of youth and lost love. What can I say, I'm kind of a sap! Razz

Girls in the summer clothes is not a happy song to me at all.

It definitely has the nostalgic feeling to it with those lovely soundscapes and all, but I think the lyrics speak of pretty dark things.

I can see how the song could be interpreted as dark, but it's all in how the listener hears it. I usually just take away that Bruce is reflecting on his past loves and thinking about the days that he has lived. Although disappearing youth can be kind of depressing. Ugh, don't ruin the song for me, Harbortown! Crying or Very sad Wink

Of all of Bruce's songs, this is one of the last ones that I would consider "dark".

Yeah that's true. Ultimately I guess it's one of those songs that let the listener apply their own meaning of the song based on their own experience.

I'm kind of getting into Bruce Springsteen.

Not so much the classical stuff that Brian keeps talking about, but actually the latter albums and even some of his 90s efforts. Human Touch, Lucky Town, Magic, The Rising. I love 'em. Then again of course I do love Darkness on the edge of town and Born in the USA, but that's pretty much self explanatory. I can't seem to grasp his early, more soul oriented records though. I don't get all the fuss.

I'm the exact opposite. I'm vaguely fond of his later stuff, but Greetings through Darkness is probably my favorite span of records ever. You gotta give Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle another try.

This is a 'grower' of an album if ever there was one, it grows on you and then you suddenly love it, well i did anyway! Found it to be difficult to get into unlike most of his other early stuff, love Grettings, brilliant album.

Not a big fan of The River as an album at all, too much average-enough stuff to trawl through IMO. Anybody ever heard its original set list? (10 songs (Incl. The River, Hungry Heart, Ties That Bind and Jackson Cage) were recorded prior to its release and were gonna be released as an album titled Ties That Binds, sounds so much better in this more compact version.

I don't think anyone has said it was happy song have they. I said it was cheesy and someone said sappy. I guess Ive never really read into that much though as Ive never been mad keen on the song

I meant sappy as in overly nostalgic and a little corny, not happy. It's not, IMO, as deep or dark as some of Bruce's other stuff, it just is what it is. Kind of middle of the road for him, but I still love it though!

It'd be weird anywhere else in his catalog, but that album is just all over the place genre-wise. It took me a while to get into, but now it just kind of adds to the freewheeling nature of Wild, the Innocent to me.

Queen of the Supermarket is a song that I love when it begins, hate it halfway through, and by the end, I'm glad I listened to it and want to listen to it again...the music on that song is so amazing, but unfortunately, there are a few choice lines that destroyed it for most people. What Love Can Do and Life Itself I thought were awesome! All in all I thought WOAD had brilliant music and arrangements, but was bogged down by too many throwaway lyrics (This Life could have been good). Love the sound from the album though. Surprise, Surprise is a guilty pleasure. An easy pop song but a fun one.

As much as I love The Rising (my first Boss album when I was 14), I think Magic may be my favorite since the Reunion. It went back to a more rock feel than the Rising and previous Boss releases going back to Tunnel of Love.

The second side of WIESS is the best side of music that has been released imo. Saw him perform the album in full at Madison Square Garden a couple of years back - was great.
