The fourth studio album by Bruce Springsteen, Darkness on the Edge of Town is considered by many to be one of Springsteen’s most highly regarded records. Rolling Stone magazine has ranked it at #150 on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and it has been certified triple-platinum by the RIAA.
Darkness on the Edge of Town was released in 1978, three years after Springsteen’s previous album Born to Run. The album follows Springsteen’s “four corners” approach to album structure. The songs beginning each side of the record are rallying, rousting numbers and the songs ending each side focus on hard circumstances that seem to obliterate all hope. Critics praised the maturity of Springsteen’s lyrics and themes on the album; and although Darkness on the Edge of Town did not generate any significant hit singles, the album itself was critically well-received and was called a landmark record in rock and roll.
