I can't say for sure but I often feel this way.
I know it's not really fair since it's a double length album so the quality is that much deeper but hey, I'll take 4 tracks of that collection and put it up against ANYTHING else he's ever done:

-Out in the Street
-Cadillac Ranch
-Two Hearts

And for the slower, moodier stuff, I love
-Fade Away
-The River
-Point Blank

I think The Boss has so many incredible albums but The River seems to always rank at or near the top of my list. No doubt, if I ever feel down and sad, all I have to do is play the intro to Ramrod and I can't help but smile.
