pinball alleys, drive-in theaters
and city streets.
"Jungleland" is Springsteen's
most ambitious description of
this colorful world - with its
' "Maximum Lawmen," "Magic
Rats" and "Flamingo Lanes" -
and the song culminates in
gangland warfare, which seems
to be Springsteen's vision of a
modern American hell.
"Jungleland" is also the most
ambitious effort on the LP in
musical terms as well. The cut
makes use of long instrumental
passages, a wide variety of mu-
sical styles, and even one of the
few successful uses of strings
that I've heard on a classical
