Background: Released in 1987, Tunnel of Love was the eighth album by Bruce Springsteen, and his first not to prominently feature the E Street Band.

The album reached #1 on both the U.S. and UK charts. gave Tunnel of Love a 5 star review:

Just as he had followed his 1980 commercial breakthrough The River with the challenging Nebraska, Bruce Springsteen followed the most popular album of his career, Born in the U.S.A., with another low-key, anguished effort, Tunnel of Love. … Tunnel of Love was not the album that the ten million fans who had bought Born in the U.S.A. as of 1987 were waiting for, and though it topped the charts, sold three million copies, and spawned three Top 40 hits, much of this was on career momentum. Springsteen was as much at a crossroads with his audience as he seemed to be in his work and in his personal life, though this was not immediately apparent.
