The words and music of Bruce Springsteen by Rob Kirkpatrick ( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Words and Music of Bruce Springsteen provides a comprehensive and coherent look at the work of a thoroughly complex and persistently captivating artist." "Bruce Springsteen enjoys a popularity that has transcended generations. His 1975 album Born to Run was voted the most popular album of all time in a recently published Zagat survey; his 1984 album Born in the U.S.A. spawned seven Top Ten singles while selling more than 20 million copies; and his 2002 album The Rising was regarded by many critics as the most poignant artistic reaction to 9/11." "Springsteen, now in his 50s, has evolved from an over-hyped version of the "next Bob Dylan," to the "future of rock and roll" in the mid-1970s, to a pop culture icon in Reagan America, to a 21st-century populist voice. His career has been covered many times over, yet many of the complexities and apparent contradictions of Springsteen's music remain unresolved. These include his hard-rock influenced musical background; his movement from themes of rebellion and isolation in his early work to those of a more populist complexion later on; and his contribution in the 1980s to a conservative patriotism - despite his albums' close association with the music and ideas of Woody Guthrie. Springsteen presents an extremely compelling subject as a result of all these influences and epochs, and it is through his music that we can find new ways of understanding his art, his life, and even his country." "After a brief biographical treatment, Kirkpatrick considers all of Springsteen's significant albums in chronological order. In addition to a probing musical analysis, the book offers a guide to Springsteen's lyrical themes and motifs, allowing readers a coherent insight into the complicated nature of the artist's underlying concerns, influences, and ideas. Rounding out the volume is a consideration of Springsteen's legacy as a songwriter and musician, as well as appendices including a bibliography and a complete discography."--BOOK JACKET

Magic in the night : the words and music of Bruce Springsteen by Rob Kirkpatrick ( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rob Kirkpatrick's Magic in the Night uses Bruce Springsteen's biography as a lens through which listeners can reevaluate his 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 recent Zagat Survey) and what's made Springsteen the most respected and influential artist in rock music."--Jacket
