Bruce Springsteen's 'Darkness On The Edge Of Town' was his first bold step away from commercialism after the massive success of 'Born To Run' and showed him more concerned with artistic integrity than shifting units. This double album consists of songs which were recorded during the 'Darkness' sessions and which were slated for release on a follow-up album that in the end never saw the light of day - until now. On it, Springsteen's dark lyricism is in full flow; these songs sound like a fully realized album, and not just a collection of outtakes.

Brilliant new album of new material, IMO best record released this year

Thats a good price for a new CD, nice deal

A great deal from HMV for The Boss.
Thanks for the post.

Cracking deal.

A chance to hear the original version of Fire and Because the night.

Loved Darkness album, this will be very welcome, heat added.

Don't get too excited. There is a reason these haven't been released for over 20 years.

Only now when his well has run dry, I give you his worst ever album Working on A Dream, does this material reach a standard good enough for release.

I am a life long fan but just because its by and large two albums of unreleased material from 1976-1978 does not make it Darkness Part 2 in either subject matter or quality.

Still this is a hot price for it but more than its worth.

Sorry correction, over 30 years.

Im still looking for the darkness on the edge of town anniversary edition for under ridiculous pounds sterling, (40 or under should be ok) if anyone sees it give me a shout. - hmv.com/hmv…269

Have HMV shipped anybody's copy of this yet? I ordered at sale price on Monday morning and it's been stuck at 'Awaiting Stock Allocation' ever since, even though the item was & is in stock.

HMV are usually pretty quick at shipping, so I do wonder what to make of this. Perhaps they didn't get enough stock at the promotional price?
