Default Bruce Springsteen

Ok, so really he's rock 'n roll, but we don't have one of those .
He's HUGE in my house, my mum loves him. He's had such a long career now, his 'Essential' album has three discs, that's how many great songs he has. Ok he's written some of the more famous rock songs like 'Born to Run' and 'Born in the U.S.A', but he has some quality work like 'Im on fire', and 'Hungry Heart.'
Anyone else like The Boss?

If somebody asked to name them just one album that they absolutely must listen to with the only rule being that I couldnt name a Cat Power album I could name Nebraska straightup without feeling a hint of embarrassment.

It is an absolute must listen.

I love Bruce. When it comes to chronicling modern American culture there's nobody better. There's so much to say about him and yet, I don't have time to say it all now. I may be revisiting this thread in the future to try and do him some real justice.

Oddly enough, the only Springsteen I could stomach was Tunnel of Love. Maybe because he dumped the E Street Band, specifically Clarences Clemens, and fortunately lacked his overbearing sax breaks.

Wasn't that in 1995?

That song came out in 1994. He's done quite a few albums since then:
The Rising (get it, fantastic)
Tracks
We Shall Overcome (the Seeger Sessions)
Before the Fame
Devils and Dust

I believe Philadelphia actually came out in 1993, so where has he been?
