Product Description

Product Description

1984 album from the New Jersey rocker, the blockbuster album that made him a bona-fide international superstar. The album yielded an amazing seven Top 10 singles: 'Born In The U.S.A.', 'Cover Me', 'I'm on Fire', 'I'm Goin' Down', 'Glory Days', 'Dancing In The Dark' and 'My Hometown' .

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

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 :)

In music history, there are always those one albums that stand the test of time. Albums that are mentioned and referenced too for years and will be for decades to come. Albums where you can recite every single song on the whole thing. Albums that should of been mandatory listening to everyone and should of been issued to everyone as part of a law. Okay, so maybe that last part is stretching it. "Born In The U.S.A." is definitley one of those special albums. When it hit the streets in 1984, it exploded like a hurricane and pretty much defined the 80's stadium, chest thumping, blue collar rock for the time. The fact that it was Bruce's most commercial and radio friendly release to date didn't really matter much because the writing and singing and performing was still all Bruce and the brilliance of the E Street Band. The album is unfairly criticized for being too "poppish". It just goes to show you how some people just don't understand things. The album is just as clever and strongly written as any of his more serious a;bums. But because it has a certain sound, then it can't be as good. Geez. Some people don't understand music!. The album is one of the most consistent rock albums that has a straight line from the first opening drum beats of "Born In The U.S.A.", to the final eloquent and haunting sounds of "My Hometown". Not surprisingly, this was Bruce's most successful studio album, and one of his most consistent rocking albums. Slower tracks are few on this set, the only ones being the gorgeous "I'm On Fire", which is probably one of the best songs he's done, "Downbound Train", and the already mentioned album closer, "My Hometown". This album spawned 7 top ten hits.Read more ›

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. As for Bruce Himself, his Record Sales indicated that he had a devoted core following, but was no longer a commercial force to be Reckoned with. He had the Fawning support of Critics, but they don't buy many records and won't help pay his bills.
Thanks to a new entertainment Medium, MTV, which showed "Music Videos" that would emphasize the Visual aspect of an Artist as well as the Music, Springsteen seemed very out of favor.
Bruce knew the Pressure was on him. The fickle public had written him off as a Guy who had a Spark in the 70's with "Born to Run" but his best days were behind him in 1984.
As he did before, For Production Bruce teamed with Himself, Jon Landau, Chuck Plotkin, and Steve Van Zant but this time around they gave the Recording an added Sheen and Polish, making his sound cleaner and more Accesible to a Mass Audience. His supporting casts arsenal also received an Updating, Synthesizers were added to the mix to Bode with the musical climate. Which was slightly overdue. In my opinion for quite some time Bruce sound could've benefited from A current element and on "Born In The U.S.A" Thats just what it got.
No question, the End Result would sound like Bruce Springsteen, but with a modern twist that would Enhance it's effect.
This was a well-offered offering, borrowing elements from all his previous albums. This was Bruce's comeback that he desperately needed.
Liner Notes - Incredibly Thorough. Details are given on where the recording took place, who mixed, and The Full E Street Band Roster. Bob Ludwig mastered the recording.

Bruce Springsteen's 1984 achievement "Born in the USA" might have been more respected had two things that surrounded it been put aside; the clueless fans that packed stadium shows but had no idea what the album's message really was at the time, and the politicians who mistook it for an oppurtunity to tap into the hearts of the young voters. Also, many critics will label "Born in the USA" as one of those albums that proves a performer's best-seller is not always his best work artistically. All of that aside, "Born in the USA" is no doubt one of the most successful pop/rock influenced albums that actually has the purpose of making such a cynical, social statement.
To understand the merit of this album, one must rewind two years back to 1982, when Springsteen released the eerie vocal/harmonica dominated "Nebraska." The album wasn't his biggest seller of course, but the success of "Born in the USA" more than made up for its commercial stiffness. And indeed, quite a few songs here (including 'Downbound Train' and the sarcastic title track) were written for "Nebraska," which explains this album's raw, and powerful atmosphere, with that human touch (no pun intended) that only the Boss can deliver. It just has a more 80's pop-n-synthesizer approach, that's all. 'Working on the Highway' displays a narrative of humorous irony, as do 'Glory Days' and 'Dancin' in the Dark'--all of these are pop radio-friendly tunes with characters who are all-out bitter losers. There are many other ironically radio-friendly tracks like 'I'm On Fire,' which explores the dementia of a lovelorn man and 'My Hometown' is one of Springsteen's most real-life influenced tunes since anything from "Nebraska.
