Product Description

Product Description

2002 album from The Boss alongside his musical co-horts The E-Street Band. Features 'My City of Ruins', 'Mary's Place', 'You're Missing', 'Empty Sky' 'Into The Fire' , and more.

Amazon.ca

Although it seemed the Boss had put writing rock anthems behind him after Born in the U.S.A., his longtime fans knew if any artist could write anthems addressing September 11, 2001, and not make them sound jingoistic, it would be Bruce Springsteen. The numerous anthems on his much-anticipated first full-length album with the E Street Band in 18 years are subtler than those of the Born to Run era. But the elements are all there: the joyous rocking strains of "Countin' on a Miracle," "Mary's Place," and "Waitin' on a Sunny Day"; the dark overtones of "Further on Up the Road"; the stunning guitar solo that closes "Worlds Apart," a dramatic Arabic-tinged piece detailing star-crossed love between a Muslim and an "infidel." Although most of these songs deal with death and tragedy, they still inspire. But while the lyrics are intriguing, what's more remarkable is how well The Rising works as epic rock & roll as it draws from rockabilly, soul, doo-wop hard rock, country, and even industrial. To skewer a cliché, when The Rising is good, it's great. And even when it's not great, it's still awfully good. --Bill Holdship

The boss is back- it's as simple as that. Not only that- the E Street Band are back in a studio album for the first time since Born In The USA and it's Bruce's best cd since that mega album. He says he wrote it quickly and it sounds as if all the energy he's saved up in the last decade has exploded into a great album with so many highlights it's virtually impossible to guess the hits here. Here's a rundown of the songs with my marks:
(1)Lonesome Day(10)- Catches you by the balls straight from the start. Great rock. The boss means business.
(2)Into The Fire(10)- A song dedicated to the firemen/policemen who went into the fire on 11/9 and lost their lives(most of the album revolves around 11/9 as you know). Moving song.
(3)Waiting On A Sunny Day(10)- Starts a bit like Tenth Avenue Freeze Out and Hungry Heart and sounds like the old boss especially when Clarence Clemoms infamous saxophone enters.
(4)Nothing Man(10)- A slow moving song. Philadelphia style.
(5)Counting On A Miracle(8)- Like Born In The USA's songs, hard lyrics covered by pop/rock. A person who knows his lover won't come back is counting on a miracle.
(6)Empty Sky(8)- Similiar lyrics to the previous song.
(7)Worlds Apart(10)- A defenite highlight. An ethnic start suddenly explodes into Bruce's rocky best. Brilliant.
(8)Let's Be Friends(8)- A rather naive song, but here's to hoping...
(9)Futher On Up The Road(10)- More brilliant rock from the boss. Nothing to do with the Eric Clapton song.
(10)The Fuse(8)- Alright, not great.
(11)Mary's Place(8)- The writing on the cover mark this song along with Into The Fire and The Rising as the hits of the album.
(12)You're Missing(8)- Another sad 11/9 inspired songs.
(13)The Rising(10)- The title track and first single.

I've read many of the reviews of this album - I saw somemone comment that Bruce should not be political, or that he should not be a story teller. I even saw someone comment that it was not a tribute to 9-11??? It was released too soon?? The fact is the album was already in the works when 9=11 struck - however - songs already written were altered to reflect a thrid party affect - A man who's wife was among the rescue workers lost and who's body was never recovered. By the time of release in 2002 almost every song reflected this. Not only did he capture the many feelings most of us had, he did it in a way that left room for hope. I've been a Springsteen fan since the late 1970's - I've seen him live many times - and for over twenty years I never thought an album would ever be more complete and more relevant than Darkness on the Edge of Town in 1978. The Rising has the perfect mix of strong lyrics, powerful vocals - musical excellence and of course the relevance to the world we live in. Song's which seem to focus on the anger of a nation - Into the Fire - Empty Sky (which refers to the grounding of aircraft immediately following the attacks) and the Fuse - The powerful Nothing Man which represents a survivor who is being called a hero, but lost his wife during the attacks - and is trying to find the strength to take his own life. As dark as that is, it is real - and Bruce writes about it in hopes that people will understand the survivors - and avoid the same problems that faced many Vietnam veterans - many of whom feel that those that died were the lucky ones. Your missing was also a strong reminder of the hardships faced by the survivors.

What makss this album so exceptional is the inclusion of tracks such as Counting on a Miracle, Waiting for a Sunny Day and Mary's Place.

There's a reason this CD is $1.00 right here on Amazon or maybe $0.25 on ebay; it's just not very good. In fact as we approach the summer of 2004 it will mark the 20th anniversary of Born In the USA and it's time to face the musical hard facts: For the past 20 years Springsteen's music has not improved. By all measures it has devolved into a downward spiral morass of meaningless political ideals and lightweight pseudo rock and roll. If this sounds harsh simply listen to everything from Greetings through Born in the USA and then listen to everything after that up until the Rising. If that's not deterioration I don't know what is. It will not be easy for fans to admit this because of the love affair we have with his live performances. However, if you are truthful you have to admit the thrill of seeing him isn't quite what it use to be. Because of age and his lackluster new material this is a trend that will continue on to his next album and tour. The early rumor is that his next CD will be an angry rant against conservatives, George W. Bush in particular. If that's true then Bruce is not getting the best possible advice. The idea that he or any other rock star will have a cultural impact in a concert hall to an audience that is predisposed to liking him is just foolishness. Think this through for a moment before getting steamed, isn't it the epitome of arrogance to preach socialism from a stage made possible from capitalist cash? What he's saying is that capitalism is okay for him, but the rest of us are too stupid to achieve success independently. I don't buy that and neither should you.
