The Rising

A critical and commercial knockout — and his first album with the E Street Band in 18 years — The Rising is widely considered Springsteen’s response to 9/11. But it’s also true that its core themes — faith, hope, loss and the creation of strength from each — were at heart a continuation of the work he’d begun decades before.
