Darkness On the Edge Of Giants Stadium


I will be catching Bruce Springsteen on October 2nd at Giants Stadium and I am particulalry thrilled because he will be playing an E Street masterpiece, Darkness On The Edge Of Town, in its entirety. This is particularly significant not only because Darkness is a great album but also because I think it means we won’t be dogged by his miscreant new album Working On A Dream all night .
 
 
Before we go further, here is Springsteens studio albums graded for you
 
 
Tunnel Of Love, Grade: A+
Nebraska, Grade: A +
Born To Run, Grade: A +
Born In the USA, Grade: A+
Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Grade: A+
The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle, Grade: A
The River, Grade: A
Lucky Town, Grade: B+
Human Touch, Grade: B +
Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J., Grade: B
The Ghost Of Tom Joad: Grade: B
Devils & Dust, Grade: B-
We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions, Grade: B-
Magic, Grade: C+
The Rising, Grade: C-
Working On A Dream, Grade: D+
 
 
 
So Darkness is way up there. Darkness is also a sophomore effort in everything but timing. His fourth album chronologically, it is the immediate follow up to his breakthrough Born To Run and the one where he had everything in the world to prove. So instead of playing to his audience, Springsteen came up with a brooding work that works as an extended metaphor, his relationship with his father is mirrored in his relationship with his country. The album is just about flawless and has survived to include several songs integral to Bruce’s live performance including “The Promised land” and “Badlands”. Can’t wait to hear it live.
