Out of everything that you could pick up on, that's what you're worried about? I'm more concerned about his lack of Alice Cooper, myself, but even if I wasn't, Born To Run has like 2 good songs on it, and the album as a whole just makes me feel gross listening to it. It's so ludicrously overblown it makes U2 seem humble in comparison. Even "Thunder Road," which I actually like, literally makes me laugh when the vocals swell up there in the middle.
E Street Shuffle is really the only Springsteen album I like, and I do like that one a lot, to be fair. I wish he hadn't moved away from Van Morrison/Dylanish jazzy folksy stuff to the hilariously overblown arena rock of most of the rest of his career.
