Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2002 album from The Boss alongside his musical co-horts The E-Street Band. Features 'My City of Ruins', 'Mary's Place', 'You're Missing', 'Empty Sky' 'Into The Fire' , and more.

Amazon.com

Although it seemed the Boss had put writing rock anthems behind him after Born in the U.S.A., his longtime fans knew if any artist could write anthems addressing September 11, 2001, and not make them sound jingoistic, it would be Bruce Springsteen. The numerous anthems on his much-anticipated first full-length album with the E Street Band in 18 years are subtler than those of the Born to Run era. But the elements are all there: the joyous rocking strains of "Countin' on a Miracle," "Mary's Place," and "Waitin' on a Sunny Day"; the dark overtones of "Further on Up the Road"; the stunning guitar solo that closes "Worlds Apart," a dramatic Arabic-tinged piece detailing star-crossed love between a Muslim and an "infidel." Although most of these songs deal with death and tragedy, they still inspire. But while the lyrics are intriguing, what's more remarkable is how well The Rising works as epic rock & roll as it draws from rockabilly, soul, doo-wop hard rock, country, and even industrial. To skewer a cliché, when The Rising is good, it's great. And even when it's not great, it's still awfully good. --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars Faith Has Been Rewarded August 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The cd gets better with each listen. The E Street Band has never sounded better. One of the most passionate albums in their long career. Worth the wait. The cd was meant to be listened to in its entirety. To get the best out of it, I recommend listening to it when you have an hour to spare, put it on the cd player and get swept away. There is no better companion than Bruce.
He will take you to another level.
While only time will tell if this has the lasting power of Born To Run (27 years), it is a work reflecting the times with hope and gentleness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bruce & E Street Rise Again August 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Rising is the first full length studio album that Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band have released in eighteen years. The album is also the first by major artist to have the core of its songs directly address September 11th. The songs take on the events from the views of firemen, widowers, a man who lost his life and terrorists. "Lonesome Day" opens the album up and is somber in tone yet uplifting in melody. "Into The Fire" is a brilliant song about a fireman going into the towers. Mr. Springsteen prays that their hope gives us hope and their love gives us love. "Waitin' On A Sunny Day" has a classic E Street sound with a rippling Clarence Clemons sax. "Nothing Man" speaks from the point of view of a man who has lost his life. It is a sobering look at the fragility of life. "Empty Sky" details the NYC skyline minus the Twin Towers. This might be the most personal song on the album as Mr. Springsteen himself drove to a bridge near his New Jersey and witnessed the destruction a day after the attacks. "Let's Be Friends (Skin To Skin)" is a jaunty number that has a bouncy beat and reminds one of War's classic "Why Can't We Be Friends" in its call for understanding among different people. "Further On (Up The Road)" is a buzz saw rocker that first appeared on his 1999-2000 World Tour. "Mary's Place" is a nod to the E Street Band's halcyon days. Going back to "Thunder Road", Mr. Springsteen calls all his friends to meet him at Mary's place in front of a Born To Run era musical background. "Paradise" is a chilling acoustic base number that speaks from the point of view of a terrorist. "My City Of Ruins" was first played at his Christmas shows in Asbury Park a couple of years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grown up songs for a grown up world August 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you're chronologically or musically fifteen years old, don't bother buying this CD since you won't connect with either the sound or the messages. However, if you are a musically and emotionally mature listener, then buy the CD, give it a few listens, read the lyrics and you will be happy that you did. Showing a musical range that Springsteen rarely displays while still retaining that classic "Springsteen Sound," the Boss has put together a terrific collection of emotional and musically engrossing songs. No, you won't find any sampling (we used to call it stealing) of other peoples' music, no hip-hop beats, no electronically altered sounds, no rap crap about "poppin' a cap in some fool's head," just straight-up rock-and-roll from one of the all-time best.
Though its unlikely that Springsteen will gain many new fans with this effort (though he deserves to), long-time Bruce fans will love this CD. It is certainly his best effort in a long long time, both in the lyrics and the music. The E-Street Band gets to strut its stuff (though not as much as I would like) and the few musically guests add interesting texture and depth to the recording. Bruce has always written songs with beautiful and emotional lyrics, but often the musical effort was lacking, or at least too predictable. That is certainly not the case with this CD. Excellent lyrics and finely-tuned music on virtually all the tracks, each with its own deeply emotional story to tell.
You can argue that this CD does not deserve five stars, but it certainly does not deserve a one-star rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strength, beauty, hope, arising from the ashes! June 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
`The rising' was inspired by the September 11 attacks and is a deeply personal, moving musical experience.

There are typical Springsteen uptempo rockers like the jaunty, catchy `Further on (up the road)', `Waiting on a sunny day', `Countin' on a miracle', `Let's be friends (skin to skin)'

and a couple more, which are not directly linked to 911.

`Worlds apart' stands out in its Arabic influences, telling the story of a cross cultural romance. A brilliant track.

The title track is an anthemic rocker about regrouping, getting up again, coming back stronger. Almost a call to arms.

Other standouts are `Nothing man', `Empty sky' (about looking into the NY skyline where the towers once stood and seeing nothing), and `My city of ruins' a moving ballad which has a gospel feel. Spiritual. Absolutely amazing!

The highlight of the CD is also possibly the greatest song on loss ever released (You're missing) with poignant lines like `..too much room in my bed, too many phone calls... shirt's in the closet, shoes in the hall' describing the subtle signs reminding one of the reality of loss of a loved one. Beautiful! Even more meaningful to those of us who know someone missing from that fateful event.

Carefully and masterfully written lyrics, coupled with Springsteen's passionate delivery make for one of the best CDs of 2002.
