Bruce Springsteen: Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 10 June 1978

LET'S START with the obvious. It's impossible to approach this album without taking into heavy account the fortunes and misfortunes of this Crown Prince of New jersey in these two years past. Any album can be set against the background of its own history. Only with this one, that history is both better known and more obviously influential.
