5.0 classicJerseyBlues | September 23rd 07

There are many songs that have inspired my life. Highway Patrolman, and it's line of "Man turns his back on his family, well he just ain't no good" have been words that have echo'd through my head throughout most of my adult life. I used to play this song for my kids when they were young, and tell them how important this is. I'd tell them how important it is to be there for each other, and to never forget the bond of blood. My daughter, who has really become the light of my life, never forgot this song. I just gave this album to her for her 17th birthday, and listening to this whole song reafirms what I remembered...A man lets down his family, well he just ain't no good.

GODDAMN!! This makes me want to sit on a mountain in the boonies holding an American flag while I stare out into the dawn-stricken sky, drinking a handle of Jim Beam while a Canadian girl sucks on my balls! HELL YEAH.

I used to fall asleep to this album every night for about a week when i was 16. Back then i hated Bruce Springsteen, so the fact that i enjoyed this album says something. Its so personal and down-to-earth, and really made me appreciate the Boss for the genius he is.

Haunting, simply haunting. Springsteen looks at his America and sees not the tales of hope he'd previously written about but tales of murder, betrayal, crime and loss. Title track is the story of a murderer who takes his wife for a drive and 'ten innocent people died' ends with the chilling line 'They asked me why I did what I did/Well I guess there's just a meanness in this world' other amazing tracks include financial ruin 'Atlantic City', brotherly loyalty 'Highway Patrolman' and loss 'My Father's House' also ends the album on a hopeful note with my favourite 'Reason to Believe'. Hauntingly chilling album

4.0 excellentNeutralThunder12 | March 1st 12

The only real problems with Nebraska are the few boring songs, and a few flat melodies in
songs that can't hold my attention. Besides that, Springsteen's raw and incredibly haunting
"Nebraska" is both brilliant and incredibly real. "Atlantic City" is possibly his best song,
and "Mansion on the Hill" is equally amazing.

0.0 Jack Hill | May 29th 11

Just as James Joyce's Dubliners paints a vivid picture of its downtrodden inhabitance, so too does Nebraska, providing apt insight into the crevices of post-Vietnam working class America.

5.0 classicJake Cole | June 24th 08

Who'd have thunk a demo tape consisting of little more than guide vocals and acoustic guitars could be one of an artists greatest albums, particularly one who had already released two masterpieces? Nebraska was released when Bruce (as well as some members of the E Street Band) believed that the acoustic basement tapes sounded better than the full band equivalents they were rehearsing.
Stark, spacious, and haunting, it shows Bruce at his folky best with mini-epics like "Atlantic City" and "Johnny 99." With only a few upbeat songs ("Used Cars" and "Mansion on the Hill"), it's the darkest album in the Springsteen canon and also contains some of his finest lyrics. A must buy for Bruce fans, folkies, or anyone who likes the darker side of Johnny Cash.
