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

I am not the biggest Bruce Springsteen fan around, but i can tell you that his latest release 'The Rising" Is a can't miss grand-slam. I was skeptical at first with all the 9/11 overtones, but the songs prove to be mature and thought provoking and add to that his original E Street Band and what you have here is his best collection of songs since "Born In The USA". With fifteen tunes Bruce gives the listener a great cd with little if any filler. This cd blows away any of his late 80's or 90's releases and is destined in my opinion to sweep the grammy awards next year. Songs like "Lonesome Day", "Into The Fire", "Empty Sky", "My City Of Ruins" would make Dylan proud. All the non-acoustic tunes have that unmistakable E Street band sound compliments of Steven Van Zandt, Max Weinberg, Garry Tallent, Nils lofgren, Roy Bittan, Danny Federici, and of course big Clarence Clemons on sax and vocals. If your a fan of the old Springsteen, and appreciate well written songs and a tight sounding band by all means purchase this cd and enjoy.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Divine Intervention? Jan. 17 2009
Format:Audio CD
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.

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. The likes of which we rarely see these days. But if youre an old fan and you were excited about The Boss bringing out new material (finally) then you could be disappointed by a couple of tracks. Y'see there isn't any room on an eagerly awaited album for 'filler tracks' yet 'The Rising' does have 'em. The title track is the strongest one on there and other favourites of mine are 'The Fuse' and 'Waiting On A Sunny Day.' You should buy it anyway, simply because I wouldn't be surprised if this isn't Springsteen's final record. He has the talent but just doesn't push himself. Sorry Bruce.

...you've still got one Springsteen record too many, but good for you to avoid the Springsteen hype machine. `The Rising' is Bruce's response to September 11. Read more
