The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story – review | Music | The Guardian →

"Lean", "angry" and "relentless" are the words Springsteen now uses to describe the feelings and sounds he was trying to capture in the follow-up to Born to Run, the hit album that landed him on the cover of Time and Newsweek and led some to write him off as just another victim of record-company excess. Delayed by a bitter legal battle over his management contract, he finally presented the public with a version of Darkness from which all traces of joy and release had been purged, replaced by a sense of desperation. The claustrophobia of ordinary lives trapped by work and family ties provided his metaphor.

Another great review of The Promise/Darkness on the Edge of Town remaster box set.
