What Is Bruce Springsteen’s Best Album?

HE STARTED IN THRALL to Elvis, Dylan and Woody Guthrie, rock 'n' roll, soul, folk and the other roots forms of American music, but in his four-decades-plus career Bruce Springsteen has carved out a place every bit as vital as his inspirations. Would 1973's <em>The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle</em> feature in your list?

The next issue of MOJO’s How To Buy pages will consider his output and it’s going to be quite a challenge, shaving down 18 studio albums, plus the live sets, box sets, comps and other crucial ephemera.

But what do you really need? The jubilatory, poetic E Street Band blowouts of Born To Run and The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle? The mesmeric restraint of The Ghost Of Tom Joad? The Rising’s rumination on 9/11? Where’s the frequently misunderstood Born In The USA?
