40 Years On: Bruce Springsteen's Darkness On The Edge Of Town

I remember the day it came out and WNEW FM played the whole thing, as they would often do:  "The songs on Darkness displayed a completely new way of writing for Springsteen. Gone were the self-mythologising street epics, in which 357 characters with ridiculous nicknames go off on wild goose chases around the Jersey shore (in fact, shaggy dog poetry was never again to be part of Springsteen's MO). Instead, these were taut, compact songs, designed to to amuse and amaze, but to pummel at real emotions."http://thequietus.com/articles...n-review-anniversary
