    As a rabid Bruce fan, I would say yes, but your mileage will vary.

    The album was very centered upon the events of September 11, so its topicality has been diminished by time, but is still a great Springsteen and the E-Street Band album. :cool:

    It's a great album, yes. Get his next two, also. (Magic and Working on a Dream.) They are essentially a trilogy.

    I agree, all three are worth owning. Pass completely on Devils and Dust.

    Really? I love Devils & Dust. The title track, All The Way Home, Reno, and Matamoros Banks are four of the most beautiful songs I think I've ever heard.

    What's your favorite track off "Working..."?

    Should have won album of the year in 02 but lost to Nora Jones. Great introspective about the 911 tragedy with no direct references.
