TJR says

The 25-year-old was out to colour-in the mid-70s grey of the AOR market and this was certainly achieved on a set which oozes ambition at every turn; the result of some 14 months in the recording studio with 6 months spent on the lead-single “Born To Run” alone. Springsteen has said that he wanted to make a record that sounded like “Roy Orbison singing Bob Dylan, produced by Spector.” And I’ll be darned – that’s exactly what it sounds like, so fair play to all concerned – these 8 mini-dramas are an aural pleasure, and a welcome antidote to the mind-numbing garbage which was dominating the American rock scene at the time.
