Up today is Human Touch, which has me wondering if I haven't accidentally put on a Huey Lewis album.

Tougher is my fave as well, but Brilliant Disguise was a great choice as the lead single, signifying a complete change from the previous album.

Tougher should have been a single though, probably in between the title track and One Step Up.

It was a single. After One Step Up.
(Though I see now that it wasn't released as a single in the USA. Oh well...)

I totally thought the title track was the lead single, but you're right. What's weird is that Tunnel Of Love was the second single, and released just 2 weeks later. WTF?

Tunnel of Love is one of my favorite songs that transports me to another place.

I listened to it so much during my sophomore year of college. Every time I hear it, it's like I can instantly see and feel everything that I was doing at that exact time.

I have similar attachments to Ultra Violet and 8th grade. Some songs can just get so intricately tied to one time and place. It's crazy.

Tunnel of Love's title track is so dated but so good.

Springsteen VIII - 2014, tour, album, etc.

That's what I liked about the war on drugs' "baby missiles." I mean, if you're going to mimic that sort of 80s synth sound, you better get that tremendously dated part right. Whether that's what the song is supposed to sound like, or sounds like to anyone else, aside...it's a weirdly good kind of dated.


I'm a bad Springsteen fan, though. I haven't heard anything from High Hopes yet.

Hell no. Amazing solo, great performance of the song, faithful to those fantastic live performances they did together.

Got to agree here. This release is worth it for Tom Joad alone. Love it.

The original is one of my favorite Bruce songs, so I guess I was going in skeptical. But that solo especially robs the song of its haunting quality. I take it as a song about quiet resolve rather than fiery anger.

When they did it in Anaheim x years ago, and it was new, it was astounding.

The one time I saw Bruce this last tour, he played This Depression and Tom Morello delivered one of his trademark solos for it. Fucking floored me.
