Our Review

When Bruce Springsteen released his debut album in 1973, Columbia Records thought it had finally found the “new Dylan” their marketing department was looking for, and in a sense, they had if you consider the magnitude of Springsteen's talent and performing abilities. What his debut lacks in precision is made up for in sheer nerve and enthusiasm. Bruce could swing wild — “Blinded by the Light,” “Mary Queen of Arkansas” — but when he connected with something as knowing and poignant as the adolescent-contrarian beauty of”Growin' Up,” the heart-stopping streetfight of “Lost in the Flood,” or the joyous summer party anthem “Spirit in the Night,” he was well on his way to creating a private world that was universal in its appeal. Though he was being promoted at the time as a bit of a folkie, his rock roots are everywhere. The E Street Band here is a motley lot. Drummer Vincent Lopez sounds fueled by methamphetamine, while pianist David Sancious lends a dignified sophistication. Their playing perfectly offsets the ragged, emotionally naked singing that makes Springsteen sound like a man caught up in rapture. An essential debut.

Customer Reviews

Bruce's best album (5 stars)
Besides Mary Queen and the Angel, this album is Springsteen's very best. Blinded by the Light, Growin' Up, Does This Bus Stop At 82nd Street, and It's Hard to Be a Saint In the City are the Album's very best songs. There's nothing like old classic Bruce.

A Display of Raw Talent (5 stars)
Bruce Springsteen displays unmatched poetic composition in his debut album. The fact that this is a debut album is astonishing. Each song displays some Dylan-esque elements, but otherwise Bruce's sound in this album is a unique sound. Honestly, I put it third best overall among his works, just behing Born to Run and Darkness on the Edge of Town. If you don't want to purchase the entire album, I suggest Blinded by the Light, Growin' Up, Lost

Greetings… (5 stars)
The best Bruce Springsteen album. I would love to meet Killer Joe and Crazy Janey!!!

Our Review

Aerosmith’s self-titled debut is a remarkably assured collection of ‘70s-style hard rock. While the band would greatly expand and refine their sound from these raw beginnings, there is an incredible power to their early recordings. “Dream On” was a monster, a rock epic that’s still a showstopper all these decades later. The R&B roots are strongly evident in a killer cover of Rufus Thomas’ “Walkin’ the Dog” and the electric-boogie groove of “Somebody,” while the quick-lipped shuffle of “Mama Kin” already showcases singer Steven Tyler’s inimitable rapid-fire style. The band drew frequent comparisons to the Rolling Stones in those early days, as much for Tyler’s lips and guitarist Joe Perry’s dark horse demeanor as for the tight mesh guitars of Perry and second guitarist Brad Whitford. Even the lesser-known tracks here, the explosive opener “Make It,” the extended workout of the harmonica-driven “One Way Street” and the hilarious “Movin’ Out,” are all first rate tracks.

Customer Reviews

Overlooked, yet Essential Aerosmith Album (4 stars)
This is one of their most terribly underrated albums. It’s not their best album by any means, but it’s definitely a hard rock classic.

Highlights of the album include:
– Dream On – Here’s the original version, finally available on iTunes. You have to buy the entire album to get it, but it is present. This is the one song from this album that received its fair share of airplay. It's one of rock's best ballads as well as one of their b

Dream On…is there anything else to say???? (5 stars)
iTunes: sell this song solo. i don't want to buy the whole album but I REALLY REALLY NEED Dream On. Plz…many people are with me, too.

Nuff Said (4 stars)
Dream On and Mama Kin Nuff Said. +Great Cover of Walkin' the Dog. Worth every penny. Just wish you could buy individually.

Biography

Formed: 1970 in Boston, MA
Genre: Rock
Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Aerosmith was one of the most popular hard rock bands of the '70s, setting the style and sound of hard rock and heavy metal for the next two decades with their raunchy, bluesy swagger. The Boston-based quintet found the middle ground between the menace of the Rolling Stones and the campy, sleazy flamboyance of the New York…
