Bruce Springsteen "Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ" (1973)

Springsteen has to rank just below Dylan in terms of words spent on him.  The first thing that strikes me about this album is just how wordy it is.  It's amazingly dense in terms of lyrics.  Secondly, it makes me think of exactly how diverse and experimental radio actually was in the mid 1970s.  Now it's too easy to think of it as all butt rock.  But there were all kinds of records getting airplay.
