Sound — 10
I'll admit that I wasnt just in love with the sound when I first heard the album, because I was into heavier stuff at the time. But the sound got better and better everytime. The sound is amazing in all the tracks. The song "Meeting Across The River" doesnt really have the song as it's more about the story that it's telling. I would also listen closely to "Backstreets" and sing "I like the way you brush your hair..." from Nelly's ride with me, I think someone pulled a "Vanilla Ice" on Bruce.

These Lyrics are amazing, some of the best I have ever heard. Well it may not be considered a rock album, the lyrics are about every thing it stands for; love, freedom, rebellion, and desire.
Overall Impression — 10
This is one of The Boss's first albums with the E Street Band and as far as I'm concerned its his best. Every song is amazing. This is without a doubt, one of the Greatest albums ever made.
