The Best from The Best

by CrazyJaney on Sep 25, 2008

Born to Run is simply the best rock album of all time, and I pull no punches in recommending this album to every fan of rock and roll whether you are a sixties old-timer nearing retirement or you're a high school freshman who hides in his bedroom in the dark and listens to punk and grunge. This album is to rock what Shakespeare is to a university English course, and I say that unabashedly as a university English major. Having consumed over a year of Bruce's life in its writing, recording and production, the album stands the test of time lyrically, musically and thematically, and contains the most requested songs in the Springsteen catologue. In fact, fans go wild when any of these songs are played in concert because they are so phenomenal. Constructed around the universal teen motif of escape, the songs reveal Springsteen at his melodic, rhythmic, and lyrical apogee. Buy two of these, because you will wear out the first.
