Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars His Best Since Born In The USA- Need I Say More? July 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Born To Run.....................& HIDE! May 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Admirable Attempt that Could be Stronger May 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's very difficult to write a commentary on tangible reflections of human tragedy without ruffling a few feathers. I live in PA, so while I wasn't directly hit by the 9/11 chaos, I wasn't too far removed from it and all of the ramifications. Soon comes Bruce with his legitimate offering to the American people of the best thing he has to offer: music.
Knowing that Bruce has close ties (to say the least) with the areas hit hard by the tragedy, combined with the experiences of seeing him perform these songs live on his subsequent tour, the first task is easy - that is to state definitively that "The Rising" was not merely a financial cash in, as some critics inevitably propose. The whole purpose of what Bruce Springsteen is all about can be simply summed up by one raspy snarl of his voice, or one look at his stretched and twisted face as he draws in a breath of passion at the mic. That purpose is one of the best, most honorable purposes there is: to reach out and connect and relate on an emotional level with other flesh and blood.
Look at some of these lyrics. "Into the Fire," "Nowhere Man," and "You're Missing" are all very sensitive, poignant, touching bits of poetry that function very well as writing alone. The problem comes in with Bruce The Musician. I suppose many who find this review disagreeable are those who have so much respect for the message, the simple chug-chug-chug-along chords The Boss employs on his guitar to accompany his anthems are only bonus feathers in the cap, and they find it satisfying enough. Don't get me wrong, I find the CONCEPT of what he has done worthy of the highest respect, but it can't hit a homerun in the execution department unless all elements are at a high level - and musically, The Rising is lacking.

The reason I say this is only great for young fans is because it's a typical rock and roll record that you can play in the car and sing along to. Read more
