in the U.S.A. (Reviewed by DarkWave):
rock at his best, Born in the U.S.A was and still is a superb powerful
album. From the title track to the beautiful "My Hometown",
the album is faultless. This album also had many hits on the radio and
MTV. Who don't remember the videos of Springsteen in the 80s? A favorite
of mine, excellent album. A must-have.

or commercial, giving up his gritty edge style for a more watered down
wider audience appeal. But thats just my opinion I'm sure I'll be in the

There wasn't song on this album that could be coined faulty.
My Hometown is soulful and beautiful and timeless really. Dancing in the
Dark was fun and care free, and Born in the USA became everybody's anthem,
not just for Americans. One of the best to come out of Jersey!
