Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 91/500!

Darkness on the Edge of Town is the fourth studio album by Bruce Springsteen, released in the late spring of 1978. Bouncing back from a series of protracted legal battles that kept him out of the studio for nearly three years - a relative eternity at the time - Springsteen delivered a decidedly different sort of album with Darkness on the Edge of Town. The grandiose production and lyrical scene-setting of previous works was now replaced by a more singular songwriting voice, more aware of himself and the world around him; from this new direction came celebrated crowd-pleasers like “Badlands” and “The Promised Land.”

"...the tracks paced by powerful drumming and searing guitar solos. Though not as heavily produced as Born to Run, Darkness was given a full-bodied sound; Springsteen's stories were becoming less heroic, but his musical style remained grand; the sound, and the conviction in his singing, added weight to songs like "Racing in the Street" and the title track..." -William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com

It was a good year to be a Bruce Springsteen fan. In 1978 we were still humming his first two albums and riding the adrenaline from Born to Run. Then came Darkness on the Edge of Town. It understood. It confronted us with the dark introspection we struggled to avoid. It shone a light on our fear that we'd give up and resign ourselves to a stranded, joyless life. But amid all that, Springsteen's masterpiece gave us the courage to admit how desperately we wanted out, and that, within us, we had the power to do it. It's all stored on a simple vinyl disc.
