Emerging on the music scene with 1973's 'Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.', Bruce Springsteen was heralded as 'the future of rock and roll.' Rob Kirkpatrick's "Magic in the Night" is a lens through which listeners can re-evaluate Springsteen's music as he morphs from 'the next Bob Dylan' to a Reagan-era pop culture icon, and again to today's populist voice, discussing each album in chronological order. Kirkpatrick's keen insights show why the classic 1975 album 'Born to Run' is the most popular album of all time (according to a 2003 Zagat survey) and what's made Springsteen the most respected and influential artist in rock music. Springsteen fans have never had a book like this, one which lets them immerse themselves in his music and learn about his influences, lyrical choices, and the themes Springsteen has been drawn to again and again in his career.

Review:

It was a joy to read through this book... Rob Kirkpatrick should be commended for his exhaustive research and insight... I've yet to come across another book which offers such a detailed and compelling analysis of not only the singer's art and life, but also the changes the US has gone through during this time span. Springsteen has long been feted by the likes of Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan and it's great to see someone placing himself alongside such greats with this thorough examination of his work.

Review:

He's called `The Boos', and as this book shows, he certainly is... Details the unique history of his recording career and the creative processes that resulted in some of the most influential songs of the last three decades.
