Bonus DVD is great. Both his mother and sister join him at the end of Dancing In The Dark.

Only thing better would have been the whole show.

I listened to this once through on the way to Glendale last night and I dug the hell out of it. Really loved it. I'll need a few more listens, but I really like the songs.

Finally gave this a listen. There are some great tracks on here, especially Down in the Hole, and I appreciate the "fuck off, I'm having fun" vibe of Frankie Fell in Love. I was really digging Tom Joad as well until Morrello spews possibly the most self-indulgent and needless guitar solo I've ever heard all over it. So overall a mixed bag, I suppose.

Good record, indeed the second half is superior, the stretch of songs HOIG/Tom Joad/The Wall (a Dylan impression vocally on that one?) in particular works well. The album drops a little with Down in the hole/Heaven's wall after the punch of first four songs but picks up with Frankie/Sword song.

Highlights : the three songs with the best Morello solos, ie the title track, American skin and Tom Joad. Frankie is the one I keep replaying the most.

I'm going back through a lot of Bruce's catalogue, and now listening to Tunnel of Love, I'm surprised that Brilliant Disguise has been the de facto "best of" song when Tougher than the Rest is such a stellar track.

Well the origins of this version of Tom Joad came from a one off live situation where Morelo was supposed to be showing off, so as this studio version is more or less an exact copy of the live versions, thus then... yea.

Ain't Got You/Tougher Than the Rest is one of my favorite starts to any Springsteen album. It's such a great introduction to Bruce's mindset at the time and you can hear the machismo being slowly peeled away over the course of the album, until Valentine's Day, which is one of his most vulnerable tracks.

Personally I find One Step Up to be about as wrenching a song as Bruce has ever made. Maybe The River and a handful of others trump it in that regard.

I have so many favorites from that album, it's hard to choose. One Step Up is it, some days.

Really considering going again in Feb, I enjoyed it that much the first and second times.

Best on Tunnel Of Love for me is the closer Valentine's Day. A beautiful, moving track. But as Ashley said there's so many good ones on that album.

Unpopular opinion, but this blows Born In The U.S.A. out of the water, even with only a minimal E-Street Band presence.

It's my 3rd favorite album of his, which is saying a lot. But my favorite album is still BitUSA.

Agreed. The emotional arc apparent throughout the album is powerful and makes it worth listening to in full every time, despite the presence of a few weaker tracks.
