While most of the songs were written after September 11, , a few pre-date the attacks. After its performance by Springsteen on the post-September 11 America: A Tribute to Heroes telethon, however, the song took on an expanded meaning. Springsteen has commented that "Nothing Man" was originally completed in but re-recorded for this album. A re-recorded version of the song, with an orchestral backing, features in the Spike Lee -directed film 25th Hour.
Helped by a substantial marketing campaign — pre-release promotion was the biggest of Springsteen's career  — and the concurrent Rising Tour , The Rising went on to become Springsteen's first 1 album on the U. The Rising received widespread acclaim from critics. At Metacritic , which assigns a normalized rating out of to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 82, based on 21 reviews.
Club wrote that the musically confident album showcases Springsteen's strength as an empathic songwriter. A towering achievement. In a mixed review for The Guardian , Alexis Petridis found the music awkwardly old-fashioned and said that its best songs are highlighted by good melodies rather than lyrics, which he felt are generally simplistic and unambiguous.
The song received an emotional response from the crowd given its refrain of "Come on rise up! This album was published as a double LP.
Track 1 - 4, 5 - 8, 9 - 11, 12 - 15 were recorded respectively on side A, side B, side C and side D written on label as side 1, side 2, side 3 and side 4 respectively. The individual tracks offer various glimpses of loss, confusion, hope, faith, resolve, and a good will that can only be shown by those who have been tested by fire. The music and production is messy, greasy; a lot of the mixes bleed tracks onto one another, giving it a more homemade feel than any previous E Street Band outing.
And yes, that's a very good thing. The set opens with "Lonesome Day," a midtempo rocker with country-ish roots. Springsteen 's protagonist admits to his or her shortcomings in caring for the now-absent beloved.
Lest anyone mistakenly perceive this recording as a somber evocation of loss and despair, it should also be stated that this is very much an E Street Band recording. Brendan O'Brien 's guitar-accented production offers us an E Street Band coming out of the ether and stepping in to fill a void.
The songs themselves are, without exception, rooted in loss, but flower with the possibility of moving into what comes next, with a hard-won swagger and busted-up grace. They offer balance and a shifting perspective, as well as a depth that is often deceptive. The title track is one of Springsteen's greatest songs. It is an anthem, but not in the sense you usually reference in regard to his work. Folk Rock , Classic Rock. David Bett Art Direction, Design. Soozie Tyrell Backing Vocals, Violin.
