*frere jaque* nursery ryhme connoissuer.

The man has made a lot of good music but the highlight albums are:

Born To Run, Darkness On The Edge Of Town, The River, Nebraska and Born In The USA.

His nineties output was a bit peaky album wise before he returned to form with The Rising.

Every album he made up to Tunnel Of Love is worth getting. After that buy The Rising.

The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle.

The finest album ever, by anyone.

The stripped-down "Darkness on the Edge of Town", then "Born to Run"....
Also worth checking out the 75-85 live boxset.

There was a very respectable 'Essential Bruce Springsteen' double (or limited triple) compilation which came out recently for starters...but more than likely you'll end up buying the lot anyhow! :bow:

You can't own just a few of his albums.... you NEED them all!!!!

Human Touch & Lucky Town aren't his best work, but I don't think there's a single song I'll skip past on these (or any Springsteen CD)

The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle .... is one of the greatest albums ever

But don't stop with the CD's... you'll need the 2 live DVD's as well! (and the Blood Brothers documentary DVD!)

Have a look here... you can preview most of his songs!

Another vote for 'The Wild, The Innocent...' here ! Easily my most listened to Springsteen album, 'Incident on 57th Street' and 'New York City Serenade' (It still sends a shiver down my spine when it goes from the semi-classical piano intro, into the start of the song proper) are two of the finest songs...EVER !!

On a different note, it looks like the (un)plugged is finally getting a release on DVD, well according to:- Backstreets

I have to be very typical and go for Born To Run and Darkness as my favourites. With such classics as 'Backstreets', 'Jungleland' and 'Racing In The Street' they rule!

The first Boss record I got was Greatest Hits as a gift, and then I bought The Rising and the NYC and Barcelona DVDs. Then I think I went for Born To Run, and after that Darkness. I haven't bought another album for a while...methinks it's time!

Oh and Plugged on DVD is great news! Thanks for sharing, Citysmith.

By the way KeyserSoze (and the rest of you for that matter), most of his albums are in the current HMV sale - £4.99 or £7.99 (i think) for the doubles.

Point Blank, Racing in the Street

I prefer the live albums but if pushed would say the older ones are the best. The Rising being the exception

I can remember a lot of the trendy music press slagging this off when it came out, probably because it was nothing like Born In The USA. This really is a classic Spingsteen album, and is one of my favourite albums ever recorded.
