  • I can tell about this album only one word: masterpiece!!!
  • This is his best album since Born To Run, hands down. I wonder if he'll ever have an album this good again. The last few have been so damn disappointing.
  • Gotta say I find this one just a little overrated. Maybe because it doesn't touch me on a personal level.
  • My favorite album. I will never be able to describe how much this album means to me.
  • Listening to this album on this day (9/11), very emotional. Amazing lyrics, great music, perfect voice - Bruce´s sad and open-hearted tribute to real and ordinary heroes who risked their lives to save other people`s lives and of course to the innocent victims of that tragedy. Very important album.
  • In memory of the victims of September 11
