    This album reminds me of hot summer nights with high school friends. Sadly, those times have ended now but this music’s impact will forever linger on.

    This is Bruce at his best. The songwriting, the melodies, and everything in between. This album in my opinion nudges out tunnel of love for his best work. If you want music that will stick with you forever, you’ve found a diamond in this album.

    I bought this album at 16 when it was released. I will only listen to it on the original vinyl, so I can't say how it sounds digitally, but I've been listening to this album off an on for almost 40 years now (knock wood, still no pops or scratches). I am not a Bruce fan. Years ago, I went to a concert with friends, they were my ride or I would have left. This album, though, yeah, this album. There's nothing else like it!
  • THIS ALBUM CHANGED MY LIFE...

    DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN has so much metaphor to absorb that it makes you wonder about what exactly was rolling through Bruce's mind when he was writing this masterpiece album...DARKNESS and THE RIVER are his absolute best!...My favorite track is PROVE IT ALL NIGHT because it was so hauntingly sad but hopeful at the same time. I ALWAYS HOPED THAT THE YOUNG LOVERS IN THAT SONG DID GET MARRIED AND LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!!! I was born and raised in a north suburb of Detroit, and I always preferred Springsteen to Bob Seger. His earlier material was great, but this departure from that style was a revelation for me, and I connected to it. I was a young, teenaged loner girl when I first saw this album and bought it. I must confess that I gazed back into Bruce's eyes on the album cover each and every time I played this record...I felt that I connected with his soul...My entire background (family, religion, upper-lower class social standing, loneliness, hopefulness for the future) almost mirrors Bruce's own background...we even share the same September 23 birthday!!! Thank you, Bruce. I LOVE YOU!!!
  • I know. He hates that sound.

    (GASPS) What? You're cheating! I saw that! We're starting again. Suit yourself. Greedy, bloated goat! (LAUGHS) Bloated goat!

    Probably Bruce's best work (BTR is a great album as well) and probably one of the 30 or so greatest rock albums ever. Badlands is probably his 2nd best song behind Thunder Road and the title track and Racing in the Street are both probably in the top 5 or 6 of Bruce tracks. Something in the night, the promised land, streets of fire, and prove it all night are all great. Even adam raised a Cain and candy's room get it done for bruce. Great album
