Review Summary: You're just lonely sometimes.Bruce Springsteen lit a torch in 1978 when he released Darkness on the Edge of Town. Although it has been traditional to point toward Born to Run as his definitive rock statement, I would argue that Darkness was actually the record where he came into his own as a genre-defining artist. Born to Run is a once-in-a-lifetime record, something that begins and ends with itself.
In existence since 2002, Trophy Scars is a band that bears testament to the never say die attitude. This is quite something, considering that they started out with the intention of only ever lasting for a brief summer all those years ago. Here we are, after several years scratching along on what the band describes as a DIY existence, and Trophy Scars are ready to take a big step forward.
