Info for The Rising

„The Rising“ won the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. "The Rising" won the 2003 Grammy Awards for Best Rock Song and Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. The album was nominated for the 2003 Grammy Award for Album Of The Year and nominated for the 2003 Grammy Award for Song Of The Year.

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“ 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“ more universal themes. Whatever the format, the enthusiastic camaraderie of the E Streeters and their Boss is audible and infectious.

"...A compassionate celebration of the human spirit, one bolstered by the strength of family, community and individual heroism..." (Q-Magazine)
