Top 10 Bruce Springsteen Albums

Since The Guardian has officially declared Bruce Springsteen cool, I can now come out and admit I've liked him since the 1980s. I'm probably not a true fan: I like his first album and the Seegar Sessions albums too much (apparently not liked that much by diehards), and aren't that bothered about the E-street band ("the best pub band in the world"). Anyway, here's my top ten:

1. Born to Run (1975)
2. Nebraska (1982)
3. Darkness on the Edge of Town (1978)
4. Born in the USA (1984)
5. Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ (1973)
6. The River (1980)
7. Seeger Sessions (2006)
8. the Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle (1973)
9. Live Hammersmith Odeon 1975 (2006)
10. Ghost of Tom Joad (1995)

We went to see him in concert for the first time a few years back. At the end of every song it sounded like everyone was shouting 'Boo!' We were embarrassed for him; I mean, he wasn't that bad. It wasn't until later we realised they were actually shouting 'Bru–ce!' We think.
