Quote:
Similar to our series on Pearl Jam last year, we will be digging deep into the discography of an American rock ‘n’ roll institution, Bruce Springsteen. The series is called “20th Century Boss,” and as the title suggests, it covers every studio album released by Springsteen from his 1973 debut, Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. up through 1995’s The Ghost of Tom Joad.

Episode 1: Bruce Begins (Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. and The Wild, The Innocent, and The E Street Shuffle) with Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem

Episode 2: Born To Run with Jeff Rosenstock

Episode 3: Darkness On The Edge of Town with Julien Baker

Episode 4: The River with Patrick Stickles of Titus Andronicus

Episode 5: Nebraska with Phoebe Bridgers

Episode 6: Born In The U.S.A. with Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers

Episode 7: Tunnel Of Love with John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats

Episode 8: Bruce in the ’90s (Human Touch, Lucky Town, and The Ghost of Tom Joad) with Tim Showalter of Strand of Oaks

Bruce knows how to produce a solid vinyl listening experience.

Which records? Their studio work has usually left me feeling underwhelmed (with Nebraska being the big exception).

I think they all SOUND fantastic. Quality of songs aside, he seems to press a good vinyl and the produciton is generally top notch. The night I made this post i was listening to Wrecking Ball. I think this would have been a better album without Tom Morello. His guitar solos are so 80's metal/arena rock it detracts too much.

All of the original pressings of his older stuff sound great. I have all of them but Tunnel of Love.

I thought that Tom Morello was very limited on Wrecking Ball and had more influence on High Hopes.

I quite liked Wrecking Ball. I thought it was his best album since he brought E Street back together.

Edit: best album with e Street since he brought e Street back together.

Edit 2: 1) Wrecking Ball, 2) Magic, 3) The Rising, 4) High Hopes, 5) Working on a Dream.

I didn’t count the Seeger sessions or his solo work which were both really great.

I love the Seeger sessions. It'a fun album.

For his studio / classic albums, I like The River, Nebraska, and Born In The USA. After that, probably Darkness On The Edge Of Town.

All my knowledge is pretty much from the tournament last year. It was a fun experience learning Bruce.

I'd swap Magic and Wrecking Ball, but otherwise I agree.

The classics... I personally enjoy Darkness at the top. Just a raw wonderful Springsteen album. Somewhat liked i always wish he would sound like.

From the beginning to Tunnel of Love, I’d have it:

1) Darkness on the Edge of Town, 2) Born to Run, 3) Nebraska, 4) The River, 5) The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle, 6) Born in the USA, 7) Greetings from Asbury Park, 8) Tunnel of Love

In "Prove It All Night," is Bruce basically talking about he's going to make love to her throughout the night to prove how much he loves her?

Yes...Magic is the best album he's put out since the 80s and is probably in my top 5 overall.

1. Magic
.
2. The Rising
3. Wrecking Ball
.

.
4. Working On A Dream
5. High Hopes

It's about a man trying desperately to convince himself he's not gay.
