10 Best Bruce Springsteen Albums

On the eve of his new album, Letter To You, here are ten of the best from The Boss.


For nearly 50 years, Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band have been a constant and comforting presence to millions of fans across the world. Beginning in 1973 with his folk-infused debut, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., and continuing all the way through to 2020’s Letter To You, few artists in the canon of popular music can rival Springsteen’s prolific nature or the consistency of his work. He has sold over 150 million records worldwide and carved out a reputation as being one of the most relentless live performers of all time. Even well into his sixties, it was not uncommon for a Bruce Springsteen show to exceed the three and a half hour mark.

A master of the narrative song, Springsteen’s strength lies in the characters he creates, often portraying them in ways which reflects his own musings on everything from love and relationships to societal unrest and political protest. His influence is unquestionable and cuts through the history of modern rock music, counting the likes of Arcade Fire, The Killers, Pearl Jam, U2, and many others as devout Springsteen disciples.

To celebrate the release of Letter To You, his twentieth studio album, here are his best up to now.
