That said, I can think of few records so sprung with joy as The Wild, The Innocent and the E Street Shuffle. That was one hell of a band.
I disagree. I think Human Touch and lucky Town are good. As is the MTV show the same time. I am not a big fan of the big band sound of the E Street Band. I actively dislike Clarence Clemon's Saxophone contributions. I can appreciate the rush of the first three albums, and Born to Run is as solid an album as anyone has made. But is Tunnel Of Love where I really join in. I prefer the stripped down sound, and more considered , maybe " adult" nature of the lyrics. Lucky Town was the last Springsteen album I liked, and I think his recent form is just horrible. I can see what the big Springsteen fans see in him, and his epic performances. But it just not for me.
