1978 album from the acclaimed American singer/songwriter. Includes 'Badlands', 'Something In The Night', 'Prove It All Night' and more.
The pain of a protracted legal battle with his former manager and the release of being allowed to record again after a three-year layoff are equally apparent from the piercing hard rock and harsh lyrical content of Darkness on the Edge of Town. Betrayal and hard work that comes to naught are the primary subjects on his mind here, evidenced by songs such as "Adam Raised a Cain," "Factory," and "Streets of Fire." Elsewhere, there are signs of hope or at least the possibility of outrunning your problems ("Racing in the Street," "The Promised Land," "Prove It All Night"). But mostly, these are songs about exorcising some serious demons, and from the sound of things, Springsteen's loud, lonesome howl and blistering guitar work went a long way toward making him whole again. This is angry art, made by someone pushed to his absolute limit and more than ready to push back. --Daniel Durchholz
Got this after I bought the promise which was excellent. Doesn't disappoint. I hope to hear more old stuff from archives in the future.Published 18 months ago by Chris Parsons
I was just listening to The 30th Anniversary 3-Disc Set CD of Born To Run. It has that album remastered. Hey Columbia, how about a remastered Darkness On The Edge of Town? Read morePublished on Aug. 13 2013 by Douglas MacRae

Unfortunately, 'Springsteen Fever' is NOT a metaphorical sickness caused by loving this album so much that I felt ill. Read morePublished on Oct. 1 2007 by Jason Beck
If this album isn't on your top twenty you have to be crazy! What incredible, immediate, poweful, and heartfelt songwriting. It simply doesn't get much better than this.Published on Sept. 15 2005
It is hard to put in words how great this album is. How does a legend like Bruce top such a great album as "Born to Run"? By making an album that is perfect. Read morePublished on Feb. 13 2004 by MAGA
Although Darkness On The Edge Of Town is a dark album, it is not uniformly gloomy since its despairing moments are often spectacularly swept away by powerful blasts of defiance... Read morePublished on Jan. 13 2004 by Peter Uys
That would be a gross understatement.
This is the single greatest creation of all time.
