probably my second fave bruce album, equally with "tunnel of love"
fave tracks "cover me" - "whole world is out there, just tryin' to score, i seen enough, don't wanna see anymore......." - says it all.
i've always been a springsteen fan, aside from a teenage crush on him, which lasted a good few years beyond that!
i love his songs for their gritty & honest lyrics, being unafraid to tackle real gutsy subjects, with a fierce gusto and passion.
back to the songs....
the title track, i love less, for it's political statements, which i don't necessarily agree with.....
"dancing in the dark" of course, bruce getting into dance, with funky keyboards, this song somehow has some similarity with stevie nicks foray into this area, with "stand back" (they somehow have a similar sound-?)
"downbownd train" typical bruce, singing about the loser......
"i'm going down" is a real good big boss rock track.
"i'm on fire" again, a real passionate track, romantic & gutsy, classic springsteen.
