Synopsis

Product Description
The Rising is the 12th studio album by Bruce Springsteen, released in 2002. In addition to being Springsteen's first studio album in seven years, it was also his first with the E Street Band in 18 years. It is centered around Springsteen's reflections on the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Upon its release, The Rising was a critical and commercial success, and hailed as the triumphant return for Springsteen. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, with first-week sales of over 520,000 copies. With this, Springsteen became the oldest person to achieve a first-week sales of over a half of a million copies in the United States. The album also garnered a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album in 2003; although nominated for, the Album of the Year award as well, it was beaten by Norah Jones' debut album Come Away with Me. Title song "The Rising" was also a Grammy nominee and recipient.

For the year 2002, The Rising was one of only two albums to receive Rolling Stone's highest rating - five stars - the other being Beck's Sea Change. The magazine also ranked the album #15 on its list of 100 Best Albums of the Decade.

The Best Album In The 2000's
Mike | Everett, WA | 05/11/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."

"On this anniversary, I revisted "The Rising" and realized, despite its missteps and excess, the deeply felt album by Bruce Springsteen keeps alive the feelings of those inside the attacks on the World Trade Center as well as any artist could. I'll never pretend to love all of "The Rising," but put together "Nothing Man," "The Rising" and "My City in Ruins" back-to-back and you will find a chilling, hopeful, stirring and ultimately magestiral sequence providing a deeply felt re-entry into the horror, sadness and immediacy of one of the worst moments ever in American history. Bruce Springsteen may be a marginal, albeit loved, character in 2010 America, but when he wrote this music, he was fighting for the heart and soul of his country the only way a songwriter knows how. When the man is in touch with his necessity, his mission, he can tear through layers of fabricated discord and get to the heart of the people that make up this still great land. I'm starting to think we underestimate his gift at our own peril. At his best, he's an angel, our rock n' roll poet laureate."
