Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.131) - Ranked #151 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "Springsteen and the E Street Band played rockers such as 'Badlands' and 'Promised Land' with barely contained passion."

Rolling Stone (3/20/03, p.68) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...The album isn't punk--Springsteen got a shave, not a mohawk--but it's colored by the raw sound happening at the time....stands as the E Street's best..."

Q (Magazine) (p.120) - "Lean, wired and reeking of frustration....[The album] sounded like the work of a man on the edge."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Many of THE PROMISE's 21 tracks are R&B stompers and soul croons....This version promises enlightenment -- and delivers on a truly remarkable scale."

This was the album after the famous Jon Landau statement came to pass, and although there are still many references to cars and girls it is a blistering album. It has a similar energy that was later to be found on The River. He states in 'Something In The Night', 'soon as you've got something they send someone to try and take it away'. He repeated the themes again and again, and we loved it; maybe his fall from grace is because we ultimately can get by with just one song about cars and girls.
