Default The Best Springsteen

There is not doubt that Bruce Springsteen is one of the better musicians of the current era. What do you think his best song or album is?

You're gonna get a lot of opposition to that statement. Not from me though.

Personally, I think Nebraska followed by Born To Run and then perhaps Darkness on the Edge of Town. Mind you, The River is not without its charm, but it does kind of wear on a bit towards the middle.

My least favourites would be The Ghost of Tom Joad and Devils and Dust.

Nebraska, Born To Run, The Rising, Darkness On the Edge Of Town, those are the ones that come to mind immediately.

Nebraska is Springsteen's best, imo.

Oh god no! You have to be a real Springsteen fan to even listen to that. I think I've spun it three times since I bought it. The last three tracks, okay but the rest? Even I think it sucks, and I love The Boss.

My two favorite Springsteen songs - Rosalita and Sandy - are on that album. I'm not even a big Springsteen fan, but that's the only album of his I own.

Bruce is by far the best Springsteen.
