Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska (30th anniversary)

Today (September 30th) marks the thirtieth anniversary of Nebraska, the sixth studio album from New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen.

Anyone who gives this album a listen instantly realizes how much of risk the Boss was taking at the time. This record, basically a folk album, sounds completely different than everything else that was gracing the charts in 1982. Where everyone was embracing new sounds, he went old school with one-man, one-guitar. It was an experiment that paid off as critics loved it as did most fans.

Me? Not so much. For my full review of the album, click here.
