This album is an absolute masterpiece that I will ALWAYS LISTEN TO! A perfect example of just how PERFECT Bruce Springsteen's catalogue was.
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.

I agree Born To Run is a classic and I have no argument with it being #1 but to a large number of fans that came of age in the 80's, Born in the USA is a sound track to a generation and could just as easily be at #1. Full of songs that caught the Zeitgeist of the time; the hangover that was Vietnam, the general unemployment and dissatisfaction blue collar workers had with the economy, a feeling of alienation along with civil and political unrest. An America that was losing its way in the world. With this release, Bruce captured a moment in time that saw America not living up to its ideals and said we can do better.
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!
Yes, as it was said before, because it has "Downbound Train" and "Bobby Jean" on it.
Love this album.. Classic tracks
Downbound train is a gem!
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
Wanna know what’s sad? People actually saw this as a disappointing follow-up to Born To Run back in ‘78. Today, anyone who says that clearly has never heard this album the whole way through or knows nothing about great songwriting, storytelling, and music. In my opinion, it’s definitely with the #2 spot and certainly gives Born To Run a (no pun intended) Run for its money. I mean “Badlands” is undoubtedly one of the five best Bruce Springsteen songs ever, “The Promised Land,” is similar, “Factory” was the first hint at Bruce’s opinion with the state of America, and the closer title track, “Darkness On The Edge Of Town,” is as a thrill in a song you’ll ever get.
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
20 songs of top to bottom brilliance. Starting out with a catchy The Ties That Bind, and ending with the hauntingly beautiful song about love and loss Wreck On The Highway, Springsteen brings you through a 20 song emotional journey.
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.

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.
This is a very great album - CerealGuy
An underrated album
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
Best Bruce album. It just is...you haven't listened to it enough yet!
Best Bruce album. Listen carefully and you'll agree with me.
Better than the Miley Cyrus wrecking ball - gemcloben
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
Awesome collection of a golden period.just a guy with a piano solo to the massive stadium rockers of the worlds biggest rockstar and the best band on the planet. Highlights include fantastic versions of hard to be a saint,both borns, plus the definitive because the night. Springsteens legend was born from this.
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!
A great Rock album!
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.
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.
13? Are you people having a laugh?! Deserves to be muh higher.
Such a surprise when it came out, so uplifting
Such an underrated album.
