Almost all of the 19 tracks on Bruce Springsteen's The River hit you in the stomach with burning saxophone from Clarence Clemons and piercing Wurlitzer organ. Springsteen, meanwhile, sings of cars and girls and girls and cars, but at no stage does he forget that this is rock & roll. Described as the "new Dylan" early in his career, the singer proved this tag a fallacy, drawing on Dansette pop -- Phil Spector, Gary U.S. Bonds, Mitch Ryder -- rather than the folk tradition. The singer articulated the dilemmas of America's blue collar workforce, encapsulating a generation trapped in a post-'60s malaise. He does so with sumptuous melodies which draw in, rather than confront, the listener, and show Springsteen not just as a magnetic showman, but as a pensive, literate songwriter.
