Customer Reviews

Sound quality is good and the songs are good, what more can you ask for?
Lee
Its good for the casual listener because all of the hits are contained here, whereas the die-hard fan would probably own most or all of the Springsteen albums anyway.
Jeffrey T. Munson
If you love (classic) Rock-n-Roll, you'll love this Springsteen collection of great songs like Glory Days, My Hometown and my all time favorite hit - Born to Run.

'Best of' collections are always a bit dicey for old fans of an artist. After all, we already own all the albums these hits are culled from. And in the case of Springsteen, many of his best songs never had any radio play to speak of (e.g., 'Jungleland'). What's more, by starting off with Born to Run this album misses some great songs from his first albums (e.g., 'Growing Up')
Yet I have to disagree with Madam Marie (review written 11/10/99) who questions why an existing fan would buy this CD. The reason is simple: sometimes it's fun to hear songs from throughout Springsteen's career in one sitting. It's a reminder of how his music has changed over time, of how his themes have evolved and of why he's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And, as all these songs are familiar, it's a great CD for listening to during an hour's drive or working in the office on a Saturday or while working out. True, it lacks the depth and cohesiveness of one of his albums. And while these aren't ALL his greatest hits, they are some of them.
So, for those new to Springsteen it's a fine introduction. For those already fans, it's a nice, easy-to-take package worth having.

Bruce Springsteen is one of the hardest artists to anthologize, since his music went through so many changes over the years. He started out as a Dylan - esque folk singer, then reemerged as a pop superstar, and finally a soft rock staple (thanks to the hit "Streets Of Philadelphia" from the move "Philadelphia"). "Bruce Springsteen - Greatest Hits" is an 18 track collection of his career up to 1995, and tries to give a brief overview of each stage of his career. It succeeds to a point, since it does leave a lot out, and makes a good starting point for beggining Springsteen fans.

Unfortunately, his early years (1975-80) are represented by only three tracks. "Born To Run" is an obvious opening track, and it still remains one of the greatest rock songs ever written. I can honestly admit that I never really enjoyed "Thunder Road" but I do think "Badlands" is an excellent song. However, I was extremely disappointed that thye did not include my favorite song from this era, "Rosalita". This omission is almost unforgivable and I almost deducted an entire star for this omission.

His pop years get the most representation. This is probably my favorite Springsteen era, since it includes all of my favorites: "Hungry Heart", "Dancing In The Dark" (the song with the video with Courtney Cox) and "Glory Days" rank as my all time favorite Springsteen songs. I also really like "Brilliant Disguise". There are some other big hits that should be here (namely the top ten hits from "Born In U.S.A." left off as well as "Tunnel Of Love"), but I'll get to those later.

His later years are covered well. "Streets Of Philadelphia" is a great song, and I like "Human Touch" as well.

Don't waste your time with this. 1 cd is not even close to capturing Bruce's best songs. Seeing how he is on the SONY label, you are bound to see "The Essential Bruce Springsteen" 2 cd set coming out any time (unless Bruce blocks it). Here you go, Sony, I'll make it easy for you: CD 1: 1. Blinded by the Light 2. Growing Up 3. It's Hard to be a Saint in the City 4. Rosalita 5. Kitty's Back 6. 4th of July Asbury Park (Sandy) 7. Thunder Road 8. Tenth Avenue Freeze Out 9. Backstreets 10. Born to Run 11. Badlands 12. The Promised Land 13. Darkness on the Edge of Town 14. Hungry Heart 15. The River 16. Fade Away 17. Atlantic City CD2 1. Born in the USA 2. Cover Me 3. I'm On Fire 4. I'm Goin Down 5. Glory Days 6. Dancing in the Dark 7. My Hometown 8. War (live) 9. Tunnel of Love 10. Brilliant Disguise 11. One Step Up 12. Human Touch 13. 57 Channels (and nothing on)14. Better Days 15. If I Should Fall Behind 16. The Ghost of Tom Joad 17. The Rising 18. My City of Ruins

I've been a huge Bruce fan for years, but I find listening to this CD frustrating. It's obviously not meant for existing fans -- we already have most of the tracks on the original albums, and the four new ones are hardly essential (although "Murder Incorporated" captures a small taste of the old magic, probably because it's a leftover from the days of "Born in the USA"). But is this really the album to make new converts? Hardly. The selections are skimpy and obvious, and some of the omissions really hurt -- how can a collection of Bruce's "greatest" singles not include "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out," "I'm On Fire" or "Tunnel of Love"? Beyond that, any real Bruce fan knows that many of his best songs were never released as singles, such as "Jungleland," "Racing in the Street," "Reason to Believe" and "Downbound Train." It's a measure of Springsteen's greatness as an artist that a collection containing this many songs still feels as if you're only getting the thinnest layer. My advice to old fans: Don't bother. My advice to new ones: Try almost any original Bruce album instead. This one is a good addition to a bar jukebox, but not for anyone's personal collection.
