    Great album - played lots during summer 1984 and most of 1985 in my house.
    Would love an expanded CD set with all the extended mixes and dubs.

      My father bought this because it got good reviews. We had Sgt Pepper's for the same reason.

      It is a good album. But it outside our normal interests - so we didn't listen to it much beyond our first few listens. Dad was all about musical theater and Gilbert and Sullivan. I inherited the album when he died.

      It turns out I can sing along to all the songs - so we must have listened to it more than I thought.

        Anyone else have a side B label that's completely empty?

          Having troubles finding my copy, appears to be https://www.discogs.com/release/15616599 because the barcode matches up but my matrix code is 1A CK38653 10 A, which is close but not quite the same, and this copy has CMU P 101 stamped in the middle, but I can't find any other copies like that at all. Any help? Should I make a new listing?

            Great sounding album! The 80's mixing was fabulous. Tight as f***

                This album, by "The Boss" is a real tour de force of some of his BIGGEST and most anthemic rock hits. But, I have always felt, the album should come with a warning sticker, on the front. This is because, there is a song called "Dancing in the Dark" which is actually quite dangerous and should not be encouraged. As when I tried it, I bumped into my mam's coffee table (as with no lights on I could not see it) and I knocked over a vase of flowers, which in turn splashed water on my mam's nicest Bible. When she saw the sodden mess I'd made of half of the new testament, she was so furious with me!!

                  Not the Boss's best album, but beyond a doubt his biggest.

                    This list is a little light, or did I just not see the CD3 single:

                    1. BORN IN THE U.S.A. (4:38) - from the album of the same title
                    2. SHUT OUT THE LIGHT (3:53) - from ??

                    No cover. Clear plastic, flapped sleeve

                      Solid 4/5 stars. I'm a child of the 80s, and this album was "dad music" when I was growing up. The synths sounded cheesy to my childhood ears. I recently came across a mint copy of this vinyl for $5, and I snapped it up. To my pleasant surprise, this album is actually quite fantastic, mostly in the deeper cuts. If I could scratch out "Glory Days," I would. But, we have "Going Down", "I'm on Fire," "No Surrender," "Dancing in the Dark", and "My Hometown" to make up for the cheese of the other tracks.
