Classic Albums Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run




 “In the fourth grade I took a cassette of Born To Run to school convinced I could pass it off as a home recording of me and my band…” Jeff Tweedy, Wilco
 "Springsteen married Roy Orbison, The Ronettes and The Beachboys, threw in the kitchen sink and became a superstar.” Q
“To call Born to Run overblown is to miss the point; Springsteen's precise intention is to blow things up, both in the sense of expanding them to gargantuan size and of exploding them. If The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle was an accidental miracle, Born to Run was an intentional masterpiece.” AMG
 “Throughout the album, his band plays at peak power. And Springsteen himself sings with a force-of-nature power that’s both raw and subtly, intuitively nuanced.” Rolling Stone
