Born to Run

Born to Run is a heartland rock[?] album by singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released on August 25, 1975 (see 1975 in music). His third album, Born to Run was Springsteen's breakthrough hit and launched his career in United States and around the world. His first album to feature Roy Bittan[?] and Max Weinberg, Born to Run was preceeded by hype due to overwhelming critical acclaim. While his previous two albums, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. and The Wild, the Innocent & the E-Street Shuffle, received good reviews, popular success had been scarce; Born to Run cemented Springsteen's reputation among critics and established his first mainstream fanbase.
