Considering that the last time Bruce Springsteen collaborated with the E Street Band for a full album of new material was on 1984's epochal BORN IN THE USA, it's entirely appropriate that their 2002 album THE RISING should be forged from images strongly linked to the events of September 11th, one of America's most trying times. Virtually every song here is related to that tragedy either directly or indirectly. Some, like the surging "My City in Ruins" and the melancholy "Empty Sky" largely eschew metaphor, while others approach the situation from more oblique angles. "Mary's Place" is a rousing roots-rocker about finding joy in the face of sadness, while both the Eastern-flavored "Worlds Apart" and the homegrown "Let's Be Friends" address the need for communication and understanding between disparate entities.
Musically, many of THE RISING's songs are in wide-screen, anthemic mode, as Bruce and company attempt to rally their wounded country with positivity and clear-eyed optimism without shrinking from unpleasant reality. The interstitial ballads take the poignant storytelling mode Springsteen employed on his last new album, 1995's THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD, and apply it to THE RISING's more universal themes. Whatever the format, the enthusiastic camaraderie of the E Streeters and their Boss is audible and infectious.
...His voice is in robust, throat-clearing form...the post-Sept.11 world has refocused his songwriting....the songs grab hold and don't let go... - Rating: A-
Entertainment Weekly (08/02/2002)
Included in Q Magazine's The 50 Best Albums of 2002.
5 stars out of 5 - ...a brave and beautiful album of humanity, hope and hurt from the songwriter best qualified to speak to and for his country.
In the end THE RISING's message...is one of indomitability.
6 out of 10 - ...His best for some time...
4 stars out of 5 - ...A compassionate celebration of the human spirit, one bolstered by the strength of family, community and individual heroism...
Ranked #2 in Uncut's 100 Best Albums of the Year
Ranked #5 on EW's list of 2002's Albums of the Year
Ranked #11 in Mojo's Best Albums of 2002
Ranked #14 on Spin's list of 2002's Albums of the Year - ...A boldly corny, plainspoken album by a songwriter who sincerely believes that working stiffs deserve a spokesman who's not a jingoistic yokel.
Included in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2002 - ...In the grainy force of Springsteen's voice and the muscular exultation of the music, the power of ordinary men and women to build anew, atop so much loss, rings loud and true.
