EDITORS’ NOTES

Having disbanded The E Street Band to see what he could come up with on his own in the ‘90s, Bruce Springsteen explored smoother rock and pop. Keyboardist Roy Bittan stayed, adding warm synthetic textures to the insightful title track and the positively heartstopping “I Wish I Were Blind,” where one can hear the skies open in the final return as Bruce sings: “And though the world is filled with the grace and beauty of God’s hand/Oh I wish I were blind.” Sam Moore of Sam & Dave adds backing vocals to “Soul Driver,” “Real World,” and “Man’s Job.” Mark Isham puts his trademark trumpet phrasing to the irresistible “With Every Wish.” “Cross My Heart” pulses like a film noir. “Gloria’s Eyes” features flashes of Springsteen’s underrated guitar work. Yet the lack of The E Street Band impacts the overall feel, and songs such as “The Long Goodbye,” “Man’s Job,” and “All or Nothin’ at All,” while plenty strong, miss the group’s identity.

Another Porcaro Masterpiece

One of the many albums that featured his easy
laid back style of drumming. How ironic in that it was released four months before his tragic death. Jeff Porcaro left behind a lasting legacy
that will never be forgotten. He will always be alive in the hearts and minds of all his fans Around the World. I still want to acquire the other Cd's of Toto for my I-pod library. Hydra. Turn Back. TotoIV.Isolation. Fahrenheit. And The Seventh One.Oops forgot to mention the Soundtrack of Dune.As always the best and a legend in his own time.Keep playing those drums in heaven and also on my heartstrings forever and ever.Goodnight my Dreamyeyed Angel. 🎻💛😂🎺😊😀🎹😈🐱🐈💙❤️💚📱💜📀😄💿🐯🎧😇📲🎤💽🎸🎼🎷😅☺️😍. Te amo Jeff Porcaro

Like it

My first album was b-USA loved it.then tunnel of love grew on me.when Bruce came off the road in 89 he took a risk he threw some pop/rock into his music.
He got a lot bad reviews but I think human touch ranks up there.brilliant song writing the title track.gloria eyes is a catchy little tune.his acoustic songs always great.overall I like 7 songs off the album
