Having just seen Bruce and the band touring the anniversary of this album, I am taken right back to the show with each and every track...worth every hard-earned dollar I just paid for it.

Seminal 1980 double album from the USA rocker, the song-writing quality is quite good although as with most double albums there are a few fillers in between, but the texts on this album are some of Mr. Springsteen's more understated. The recording quality is ok but the mastering is frankly quite bad, early European pressings were OK, better than the USA pressings but literally all CD pressings sound awful, initial CD transfer from 1982 was used on all releases until 2005 when a Japanese pressing appeared that was slightly better, however that was allegedly not from a master but from a tape copy.

Nice album for people into adult oriented rock but in a bad need of remastering.
