I disagree. He's definitely hit or miss but Nebraska, which was one of his solo albums, is IMHO the best thing he's ever done. And I'm not alone in thinking this, a lot of people agree with that assessment, including die-hard fans.

Dirty, crime-ridden and corrupt, New Jersey is a land mired in ****. Springsteen, naturally, spent enough of his life there to write most of his work about this ****hole.
The Newark/Jersey City part of New Jersey isn't the totality of the state. NJ always gets a bum rap from people who've only driven through it or only spent time in certain areas but it actually has a lot of nice areas too. Cape May springs to mind, for example.

Okay my turn. Thrice:
1.They release one good album as a debut, but they're not big enough for anyone to acknowledge it. Until Artist In The Ambulance comes out, and then all their fans are cok-rock junkies who cast off their debut because it's not "hardcore" enough
2.Get a f*cking drummer that knows what he's doing, and isn't just banging on the wrong beats
3.Vheissu may be the worst post-hardcore(and I use that term very lightly) album I've ever heard. They tried, and failed, to be melodic and different.

Identity Crisis-A
The Illusion Of Safety-B+
Artist In The ambulance-C+
