What About Tunnel Of Love?

When reviewers say that Bruce Springsteen's Seeger Sessions is his best since Born In The USA, they mean that he's never sounded more loose. Recorded quickly, the new album is different than that mega-opus. The genius of Born In The USA, was that it felt like it was done in a month, but research tells us that it took longer. Of course, saying that the new album is his best since, is a put down of Born's followup, Tunnel of Love, which is as strong as any in his catalog. But as he got older, Bruce's albums lost flavor and sounded fussy. Especially, the Rock ones. Seeger Sessions ain't Rock, but at times it rolls just nicely. His best since he became 10X platinum seller? Nah, I'll take Tunnel. But one that fits snug in his catalog.
