“Tunnel of Love” is the eighth studio album by Bruce Springsteen and was released in 1987. It has Bruce uncovering “an inner life and unresolved feelings” as he turns his gaze inwards for an entire recording following the explosion of “Born In The U.S.A.”.
The end of a marriage and the beginning of a ten-year break with his long-standing band (who appear only spottily here) make for a powerful and reflective listening experience.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 475 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
