Back in time
30 September 2022
Living legend BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN released one of his most compelling and gripping longplayers 40 years ago today with his 6th one NEBRASKA. A diamond of a record with The Boss at his melancholic and stripped-down, acoustic best. This record feels like he’s
a troubadour wandering on the road to Atlantic City.
Pitchfork said: “It’s an essential record in the history of home recording, but it was sort of a cul-de-sac for Springsteen himself. He has returned twice to the general format of the record, releasing the mostly solo and mostly acoustic albums The Ghost of Tom Joad (1995) and Devils & Dust (2005), but neither comes close to the alchemy of Nebraska. This one just happened. Springsteen covers the entire episode of the record in just a few pages in Born to Run, and there isn’t a lot to say. He wrote the songs, he put them down on a demo, and that demo became the record.” Score: 10/10.
