Overview

Tunnel Of Love is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released on October 9, 1987. Springsteen "turned inward" on this album, writing about "love gone wrong" in response to changes in his personal life, especially his crumbling marriage to Julianne Phillips, and his decision to leave the E Street Band. The result is a collection of songs that deal with the difficulty of mature love rather than Springsteen's earlier arena rock anthems to the working man. Although members of the E Street Band occasionally performed on the album, Springsteen recorded most of the parts himself, often with drum machines and synthesizers. While the album's liner notes list the E Street Band members under that name, Shore Fire Media, Springsteen's public relations firm, does not count it as an E Street Band album and 2002's The Rising was advertised as his first studio album with the E Street Band since Born in the USA. The album won Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo at the 1988 Grammy Awards. In 1989, the album was ranked #25 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Best Albums of the Eighties" while in 2012, Rolling Stone ranked it at #467 on their list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Tracks "Brilliant Disguise", "Tunnel of Love", "One Step Up", "Tougher Than the Rest", and "Spare Parts" were all released as singles.
