Product Description

Amazon.ca

Born in the U.S.A. is an album painted in big, broad strokes. But it was still too subtle for some--namely politicians who tried to tap the title track as a jingoistic anthem when it is in fact a bitter diatribe by a Vietnam War vet whose country forgot him. The rest of the album is a glorious grab bag of radio-ready populist anthems--his best display of pure pop songwriting ever--including "No Surrender," "Dancing in the Dark," "Bobby Jean," and "Glory Days" alongside more circumspect numbers such as "My Hometown" and "I'm On Fire." It's not true that there's no arguing with success, but in this case Springsteen's widespread acclaim was warranted. With Born in the U.S.A., all those predictions from a decade earlier--that Springsteen was the future of rock--had come true. --Daniel Durchholz

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivered Fast! Dec 15 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My Dad really wanted this CD for Christmas, but you can't find it in any stores. I chose the 3-8 business day shipping option, not wanting to pay $20 for shipping and handling, and I wasn't expecting it to arrive for at least a week at this time of year, so I was ecstatic when I received it the very next day! It had a small crack in the case, which is why I gave 4 stars, but hey, as long as the CD works fine I'm not too picky about the case :) Great service :)

Born in the USA is one of Springsteen's most iconic and classic albums ever. I can't believe I didn't own it sooner. Definitely one of my favorites! Love every single song on this album and can listen to it over and over. The cover also contributes to my love for this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars rebel with a cause.................? Dec 7 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.
love 'im!

2.0 out of 5 stars I see why he blew off E Street... June 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
Thia album gives the US a bad name... Oh, sure, it has decent tracks like "Dancing in the Dark, "No Surrender", "Downbound Train" but after that the quality is lame. Check below.
Born in the USA- Sounds like a street band saying "Born in the USA" 10 too many times. The backing vocals are lame, the piano and the CONTINUED reference to Vietnam are stupid. The tune is unforgettable, which could be good or bad. 3/10
Cover Me- A 50's style (hate it) just plain lame track with little quality. Don't waste your time. 2/10
Darlington County- Bruce talks about old road trips with nothing but $200 and rock and roll. Dispite (here I am using big boy words) the good feel, this song really talks about nothing. 3rd song with no guitars. 3/10
Working on a Highway- Better song about the good old days working on the highway, 3rd song about actually living in the US (CM doesn't) 6/10
Downbound Train- 1st good song on the album about having it all, losing it all, trying to get it all back, losing it all again, haunting. 10/10
Im on Fire- Embarrasing song, 5th about the USA. Don't make me say anymore. 1/10
No Surrender- Sounds like it's from Grease. Good feeling about being a rebel in class, robbing banks, and life. 10/10
Bobby Jean- Better love song about rebels in love (sick). What is Bruce thinking? Maybe they let him and the other convicts look at their photo albums in prison. 4/10
I'm Going Down- See above but opposite. 5/10
Glory Days- Now this is what I'm talking about! Bar song about ... glory days. 7/10
Dancing in the Dark- Best song on this album. I can't describe it, it's cacthy... other stuff, too. 10/10
My Hometown- Along with BITUSA, GD, DITD, I think this was a single.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pandering to the Cheap Seats Jan. 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
Subtlety was never Springsteen's strong suit, but this is too much. With all of his excesses on display, here we have Bruce playing to the riff-raff. Whatever its message might be, the title track "Born in the USA" might be the most unlistenable hit song ever released by a respected recording artist. The entire song is just a sequence of six musical notes repeated ad nauseum, even through the refrain, and the ear-splitting production might trigger seizures in some people. ... "Glory Days" is a similar musical and production atrocity, with Max Weinberg sounding like he's playing garbage cans instead of drums. "Darlington County" is a slightly more elaborate variation of this formula. "I'm Going Down" probably has Bruce setting a world record of some sort for repeating the same word over and over and over. It makes me bored, bored, bored. "Dancing in the Dark," "I'm On Fire," and "Bobby Jean" narrowly rescue this album from a one-star rating. The rest of this crowd-pleasing schlock needs to be locked away in the fetid arena rock sub-basement occupied by the likes of Journey, Styx and REO Speedwagon.
No one feels an audience's pain like Bruce does, no question about that. But he rarely transcends it. All he does is wallow in it. After cringing through the mawkish sentiment of "My Home Town," I finally had to put on John Lennon's PLASTIC ONO BAND just to lighten the mood a bit. This is the album that alienated me from Springsteen once and for all. When it comes to '80s pop, gimme the Go-Go's any day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruce and the E Street Band's Best Album - Hands Down.
Although it's inconceivable today, there was a time in 1982 when Bruce Springsteen was in a slump. His style of thoughtful, Anthemic Heartland Rock had seen it's heyday pass. Read more
