True, I tend to forget that one. It doesn't have the huge singles of BITUSA and it isn't as infamous as Human Touch.

I don't like my Bruce Springsteen pleasant. It doesn't wear well on him. He's brilliant, but Queen Of The Supermarket is almost unforgivable.

i realize i'm well in the minority on this one, but i really like that one -- it's intentionally demented, and the joke sustains for the duration of the song.

i just wish that the narrator said that he, and not her smile, would "blow this whole fucking place apart."

then it would have been really brilliant.

Tunnel Of Love was his last classic from that early period, and then he went into a funk for a while before The Rising emerged.

Springsteen should just take his time and not release an album every 1 or 2 years. Magic was fairly decent, but Working on a dream is just boring imo.
