The Rising was such a needed album when it came out. The Boss always knows what to say.
The word was out for a long time after the Towers came down that Springsteen was doing an album about it and I wondered how in hell he could do that- write about the unspeakable. And yet of course, he did. The first time I ever listened to it, I cried so much. It's pretty perfect. I still cry, listening to it.
Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
