Bruce Springsteen has only done music and to his credit and benefit. His voice is as solid as ever. On The Rising he explores even gospel music.

"This Is Such A Great Album. One Of His Best By Far. This Is The Album That Should've Won Album Of The Year. My Favorite Song On Here Is "Nothing Man." Other Great Songs Are "The Rising", "Lonesome Day", "You're Missing", Just To Name A Few. Let's Hope He And E Street Band Keep Making Great Music."

"The songs in this album have more depth than most "rock" songs, but then, Mr. Springsteen usually does have depth in his songs. The title song is powerful, and the rest are quite relevant to our time. There is nothing like classic rock and roll, and this album is a classic while relevant to the present."
