About Bruce Springsteen - Born In the U.S.A. Album

Born in the U.S.A. is the seventh studio album by rock singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released on June 4, 1984. Often considered his most popular and commercial triumph, it saw Springsteen (in contrast to his previous album, the critical favorite Nebraska) experimenting with anthemic arrangements and a 1980s production incorporating a radio-friendly sound that was embraced warmly by both critics and the audience. Springsteen also delivered a ..

    A Classic for the ages. The remasterimg of this CD is so impressive. It is if he is actually in the rrom with you. The sound quality is exemplary. The songs can all stand by themselves as works of art. Any song could have been released as a single and become a big hit. This is the BOSS at his finest, crafting great lyrics coupled with outstanding music. If you want to own one of the most definitive CDs of the pop era, this is the one. Great job iTunes on the mastering. Great job The BOSS on the album. This is truly one for the ages.

    Misunderstood masterpiece. An amazing song about the promises and betrayals of America (focus on the latter, despite popular misinterpretation). Following a down on his luck Vietnam vet, scarred physically and -- especially --psychologically, the protagonist returns to his country to find economic stagnation, few helping hands and "nowhere to run to ... Nowhere to hide".

    A man of principle. Nothing needs to be said about the album itself. I just added it to my 15 other Boss albums because of his principled stance against bigotry in North Carolina.

    Your mom and dad loved this record, now it's your turn to pass it on. Pair it with John Mellencamp's Scarecrow (or Uh-Huh!) and you'll have your start kit of Reagan-era Americana rock. Every track of this album was a radio staple then, some still are to this day, and probably will be long after you read this review.

    Good album. Probably Bruce's 4th or 5th best album. Without the wild, BTR, and Darkness, this album doesn't sell like it did. Darlington County, Bobby Jean, and I'm going down are probably my 3 favorite tracks. Glory days is really good too, obviously the title track and Dancing in the dark are real popular. Good album.

    This is a protest song, not a patriotic song. Listen closely to the lyrics.....talks about being forced into the army to kill strangers....nothing about freedom in this song

    comercial crap. to those who think this is classic Springsteen, think again. After Darkness on the Edge of Town it was all downhill. But when the Boss was in his prime (74-79) there was no one better. His live performances were electrifying. Not to steal a line from Depeche Mode but this is definitely music for the masses

    One of the greatest albums of all time!. 7 of the 12 songs on the album were huge hits and bring back great memories from my high school years. A couple of them are even on my running playlist.

    Greatest Music Ever. The Best Ever!!! I remember every song and NO ONE WILL EVER TAKES HIS PLACE. I was only three when this album came out, but grow up with it in every radio in my house. I still get tears in my eyes when ever I hear Bruce. I can see my mom dancing like Courtney Cox, we didn't watch to much tv growing up. Couldn't really afford it, we listened to music, and danced. They are the best memories, and I will never forget them. Nobody knew music like The Boss!!!

    Mr. It was taco Tuesday at the NCO Club at Rhein Main AB Germany. Bruce Springsteins song "I'm on fire" was playing in the background. The taco were good and hot that day. On the big screen TV we were watching the Challenger Space Shuttle launch...."go with throttle up Challenger came across the TV..." Oh oh oh I'm on fire " came across the Video TV ...it was surreal... We all know what happened next...the manager unplugged the music after I pointed to the TV with Challenger exploding...I think the Astronauts would have wanted Bruce's song to keep playing

    No Filler to be Found Here. This isn't an album, it's an experience. You start at the beginning, you listen all the way though, and then you realize your worldview has changed a bit for the better. Best of all, it's only the tip of the Boss Iceberg--there are so many other great albums to enjoy. But if you need an entry point into this prolific artist's catalogue, Born in the USA is a great place to start.

    1984 the good version. Althougha few songs gott a little overplayed glory day the album is overall ammasterpice of bruce springsteen bringing some positive and negative experinces toa then over 30 male. I spenta lot of time wondering why anyone and many di thought Born in the USA was a dancing happy song It remains the then and sadly now a relevant tribute to guys coming home from war to find a country they fought for in economic downturn. "In on Fire summarizes males dealing with pain and if Downbound Train met the classic springsteen apporach to men dealing with heatbreak and loss This was why he was the "Boss" anyone who has not heard springsteen has missed what rock and roll was really about

    the is more than a Album. For many of us coming out of the 70’s, we missed the protest years and we were in search of a cause, Springsteen provided the music that rallied us behind the average Joe. He made home towns and sweethearts cool. He made us want to get up in the morning, go to work ready to get our hands dirty and be proud that we were a part of the working class. This was his best work until the Rising.

    An American Classic!. First off I have to admit that I'm not crazy about that 80s' sound (especially Max's drum sound), and that for a while it made it difficult for me to listen to the album. But, in time I learned to let go and even enjoy it. This is definitely among Bruce's best albums to date and one that I feel represent a lot of people in this great country - Truly an american classic!

    BITTERSWEET & AWESOME!. I LOVE the song 'Im On Fire'. I just listened to it, after not hearing it for many years and totally went back in time to 1984 or 85, when I was about 7 years old and had first heard it on my transistor radio. Just now when played it, I started sobbing & bobbing my head to the beat at the same time. Very bittersweet, hearing that song. Took me back to my childhood. The Boss is AWESOME!

    One of his top albums. My personal favorite. Kind of more pop rock than folk rock. But still Bruce. High energy songs with great lyrics. This is Bruce that you can dance to. Great album all together. Favs are Born in the USA, Cover Me, Down bound train, dancing in the dark

    AWESOME Live!. I did not know this album was released on my birthday!!! I was fortunate to see The Boss twice during the 84 Tour. Once at Reunion Arena in Dallas and once at the Cotton Bowl. At reunion I had 2nd row seats in front Clarence. What a show! Wish I could remember most of it, but I remember Santa Claus is Coming To Town was the last song, as it was after Thanksgiving.

    Child Raised on Bruce. Being the child of two fans of The Boss, I was raised on this music. I think he's great and it's awesome that he's still able to do it since he is getting older. I am currently in college in PA, but was born and raise in Jersey, and I always feel at home whenever I hear a Bruce song, or as my mom calls it, "Bruce Juice"

    The Boss!. As a mid-forties male, I had considered myself a casual Boss fan, sticking to the more popular of his songs. Last week I saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band in concert for the first time and all I can say is "Wow"!! I now know why there are legions of Bruce fans around the world. The show lasted 3 1/2 hours and there was no breaks taken. The encore itself lasted an hour. I now have to make up for 20 years of ignorence because I'm now hooked on the Boss' music!

    Wrong release date. This was actually released on June 4th, 1984 not in July as iTunes has posted. This is important to know because Prince's Purple Rain came out in July and knocked Bruce off the Billboard #1 position. Those two albums hold the record for staying in the #1 and #2 position for 24 weeks straight. BITUSA took over the #1 spot again in January of 1985 when Purple Rain slipped to #3. No two albums have had a such a lock on the top 2 spots in the Billboard charts before or since!

    Classic Springsteen. Although this isn’t my favorite Springsteen album (can anything beat “Born to Run”?), I still enjoy it tremendously. I have listened to the songs on here numerous times. My favorites are the title track, “I’m On Fire,” and “Dancing in the Dark.” Lastly, I would like to thank Courtney Cox for inspiring the Carlton dance.

    Sherry Darling. It's ironic this album is being slammed by someone named Sherry, considering Bruce once wrote a song about a girl by that name (on The River album). Although, it wasn't the most flattering lyrical description, so maybe it's fitting! Anyway Sherry, stick to mindless pop trash like the Biebs and Katy Perry and the rest of us will listen to well written material by artists who can actually sing, like Bruce. By the way, iTunes, could you please upgrade the cover for this album? For whatever reason the current one is a bit dirty looking. Thanks!
