  • Love this album

    By Kanye USA
    One of my favorite albums pre Bruce Trump Derangement Syndrome.
  • Springsteen at his hard rocking best

    By ds reyburn
    Of course the ballads are heartbreaking with their spare arrangements and deceptively simple lyrics that tell haunting short stories with a few well-chosen words. But what makes this album one for the top of the “If I could only have one Bruce Springsteen record on a desert island” is the rockers. Cadillac Ranch throws off so much swagger and joy thirty/plus years on that it still makes me want to crank up the volume until the neighbors call the police. If you’re feeling old and creaky, or fighting the January hibernation blues, you need a dose of “Ramrod” or “I’m a Rocker.” Now.
  • Me and Wayne on the 4th of July

    By The WyzenHymer
    Was at the record store waiting on the day they unboxed the shipment and went home and listened to all four sides 3 times before I went to sleep that night... mind blown. Why this one? Because on this particular album, you will hear a representation of every sound, every theme and/or every emotion he had ever written and would ever write. You can hear bits of what you had already heard on The Wild... Greetings... B2R... Darkness... etc. and would hear on Nebraska... USA... Lucky Town ... The Rising... etc. On one double album ...from 1980! If some front office idiot had distilled this down into a single album, it would not the “something miraculous” that it actually is. Some think of it as just another Bruce album - but they aren’t listening closely ... and I suppose it had to have taken almost 50 years of him recording to realize what The River really is... Bruce, complete.

    great songs, some better than others the title song is the best. would have made 1 outstanding album

    By Your blonde
    If the masterpiece DRIVE ALL NIGHT doesn't make your eyes well up with tears, then you have no soul !!! ...Yes, the song is about SO MUCH MORE than just a lonely sex-beggar with a shoe fetish driving around town late at night in his muscle car looking for a 24-hour shoe store. His heart and mind is being toyed with somehow by an indifferent user and he's desperate for her love...BRUCE IS A MASTER OF THE METAPHOR !!!
  • great album

    Nothing but the best.
  • Better than Born In The USA

    By Vincent Loscerbo
    My favorite Springsteen album!
  • Probably his 3rd best album

    By dudo670
    Good album but not in the same tier as BTR or Darkness. Front side of the first disc is excellent. The first 3 tracks are probably the best tracks of the front side along with the title track. The second side is good too with The Price You Pay and Drive All Night being the two best songs on it in my opinion. I would have to say Hungry Heart is probably the worst song on this album. It is such a sellout song by Bruce to muster out a number one single and just doesn't do it for me or any true bruce fan.
  • Great album!

    In 1980, I did not care much for Springsteen but he a new girlfriend who loved I bought the album. I started liking one song and then another and so on. Pretty soon I wore the grooves out! A somber masterpiece ! The stories of lost love and broken dreams resonate more the older you get!
