Top Ten Bruce Springsteen Albums

The Top TenXW

1Born to Run

Classics like Backstreets, Jungleland, Thunder Road, Born to Run, Meeting Across the River, Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, She's the One and Night are a few reasons this is the best album ever. Yep, all 8 of these songs on here are superb and I'll never desert this album, no matter what, this is the best album and Bruce is the best ever artist.

Every song is perfect. Not one song is meaningless and the three biggest hits, "Thunder Road", "Born to Run", and "Jungleland" are among my top 10 favorite songs of all time. God bless Bruce Springsteen.

Every song on this album is a hit Jungleland, Thunder road, tenth avenue freeze out, born to run and even night this album is unbelievable

Some of the best of his songs on this album

2Born in the U.S.A.

My most prized possession is the 1983 Born in the USA Cassette tape my dad got when it first came out. Whenever there's no internet access available to listen to music in today's world, I simply pop it in my old-school radio and I still have twelve of the best songs ever written! Twelve total songs and SEVEN singles?... Insane!

3Darkness on the Edge of Town

Darkness on the Edge of Town revealed Springsteen's song writing capabilities and his sense of timing crucial to the present. For the first time Springsteen wrote more in the present context verses his past experiences...the results are no less than astonishing!

The greatest studio album ever for me; raw, gutsy, heartfelt, and haunting.

This is some of the greatest writing ever. also the greatest album of all time

4The River

Truly worthy of being a double album. From high powered jams like You Can Look to ripping emotional epics like Drive All Night, this album is varied and fantastic. The final song Wreck On The Highway is one of Bruce's finest and most crushing songs. The same record contains Bruce's greatest party song Ramrod, 4 minutes of non stop energy. Masterpiece. - LifeOfIllusion

How can this have 16% like Born in the USA? Damn, it is 100 billions times better than the '84 album. And the title track is possibly the best song ever.

All of Bruce's album's work for me, but The River really brought it home first for me.

One of his greatest songs on this album

5Nebraska

This is a very great album - CerealGuy

6Tunnel of Love

One of many Bruce's perfect albums. Every song is truly great, it's impressive that an album all about love can be this varied. From happy carefree songs like All That Heaven Will Allow to hard hitting emotional songs like One Step Up and the finale Valentine's Day, this album is a masterpiece. - LifeOfIllusion

The Live show/concert at Villa Park 1988 was brilliant-what a great album!

After the bombast of born in the USA, this was a shock.but as with Dylan's blood on the tracks, marital discord makes for good music. It takes a few listens but as the years passed this and the wild and the innocent are the ones I keep coming back to.

8The Rising

Like "Born to Run" and "Born in the USA", this album continues the trend of albums that define an era. "The Rising" defined the post-9/11 world. The songs truly capture the feelings and emotions of the early 2000s.

The album's lead track "The Rising" is undoubtedly one of Bruce's best songs. It ranks up there alongside other classics like "Born to Run" and "Glory Days". This song defined the 2000s as a decade.


THe BEst Songs from the Album:

"The Rising" - the namesake hit single
"Waitin' For A Sunny Day" - an upbeat happy song
"My City of Ruins" - a gospel-inspired anthem
"Paradise" - a hypnotic melancholic ballad

The rising and waiting on a sunny day are too of my favorite. springsteen songs, but I feel that it's overlong - RecklessGreed

9Wrecking Ball

Better than the Miley Cyrus wrecking ball - gemcloben

10Live 1975-85

This album shows what Bruce can do on stage. From thunder road live solo on piano to Tenth avenue, he can show what he can do with a guitar and a great band. Bruce is the master on stage

The Contenders

11Magic

It is one of his more Heartland Rock albums and it has a sound that is Springsteen's trademark. This has some really beautiful music. It shouldn't be number 15. Come on!

12Devils & Dust

In no means his best, but very underrated and there are some gems on this one

Fabulous album that is criminally underrated. With the exception of BTR and Darkness this is the album I listen to the most.

13Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.

Extremely undervalued, should be in the Top 10. This album is a lyrical masterpiece, though not as "mainstream" as BTR, USA, etc. "Greetings" is about youth and innocence while Bruce's poetic genuineness carries this album throughout. If you call yourself a Springsteen fan you need to give this a listen. This album laid the foundation of The Boss's spectacular and ever-growing career.
