A floating image of Bruce Springsteen
the 1980s: From the river to chimes... Emotional rollercoaster, anyone? With Bruce, the 1980s saw the Stadium Rock juices flowing with the E Street Band, then tears through lonesome songs like The River, then a steep tumble into the sweeping depression of the grey Nebraska, a sad echo to the stadium shouts. But Bruce pulled it all back in by 1984, with Born In The U.S.A., where he has found a whole new world to synthesizers, and new emotional journeys with marriage. With beautiful live albums supporting charitable causes by the end of the decade, the 1980s saw one crazy, but incredibly beautiful, self-discovering stage of Bruce.
