So love Bruce Springsteen, this CD is awesome if you are a true fan of his.
Angela J. Roach
Too many of the songs, especially the unremarkable Real Man, suffer from the kind of overproduced sound too common during the 80s.
T. McCool
Perhaps the best song, though, is "Man's Job," a simply excellent rock `n roll love song.

Rock icon Bruce Springsteen recorded "Human Touch" in 1990 but shelved the project until he completed Lucky Town in 1992, deciding to release both albums together. In light of its predecessor, 1988's somber, personal, and emotional Tunnel of Love, "Human Touch" is generally happy and upbeat, consisting of clever, thoughtful rock songs, as well as some of his best guitar playing highlighted in the E Street Band's absence. Bruce and his crew of studio musicians execute a 59-minute record with few dull moments and many memorable ones. For the most part it doesn't have the power of his legendary classics, nor does it try to; they are light, enjoyable songs. Overall it's a great sounding record and might surprise some listeners because it is so overlooked.

It opens brilliantly, with the wondrous title track, a classic single with ingenious writing and playing, the phenomenal "Soul Driver," and the great statement that is "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)." "Gloria's Eyes," "Roll of the Dice," and "Real World" are steady-rocking and well-written winners, and "All or Nothin' At All," "The Long Goodbye," and the swinging "Real Man" also succeed radiantly at an upbeat tempo. The solemn ballads "With Every Wish," marked by muted trumpet instrumentation, and "I Wish I Were Blind" sound like leftovers from Tunnel of Love and are also vintage Bruce. Perhaps the best song, though, is "Man's Job," a simply excellent rock `n roll love song.

Format: Audio CD
After a five year hiatus that brought forth a great deal of soul searching, a second marriage, two kids and the breakup of the band that helped his music and live shows come to life, Bruce Springsteen reemerged in 1992 with not one, but two new albums dealing with all these issues and their resolutions. One would think such deeply personal material would make for some of the strongest, most emotionally raw material of The Boss's career. Unfortunately, poor production and arrangement choices strangle out a lot of the potential these songs have.

Springsteen has often stated that his fans like him best when he has a chip on his shoulder. He may have a point. Three of his best albums, "Born to Run," "Darkness on the Edge of Town," and "Tunnel of Love," were all written and recorded during tumultuous times in his professional and personal life. There's no doubt his darker emotions bring out the best in Bruce, giving a music a soul and edge that most of "Human Touch" just doesn't have.

Some of the songs have potential, but are shot down in their execution. "Soul Driver" is, lyrically, a very strong, dark love song, but musically is mutilated by an arrangement that would make Michael Bolton green with envy, complete with synthesized woodwinds and corny jungle beats. The much maligned "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)" is actually contains a lot of first rate witty touches in its lyrics, but commits musical suicide by taking itself way too seriously. If he had done as a little roadhouse rocker like "Ramrod," it would have been a nice throwaway "River" - type blowout.

I've had this album for a while, and it has defiantly grow on me. There is a better version of "I Wish I Were Blind" on the Xx plugged album, and "Gloria's Eyes," and "Pony Boy" are not the best songs ever, but I really enjoy this album. "Real World" is one of those lost treasures that never really got much attention, and "Human Touch" is a fine song. Very underrated release from the Boss. Not his best, but better than what most people think!

About the purchase, excellent price, delivery time, and the conditions of the product. This CD is one of my favorites of Bruce without his band proving that he is an excellent musician, for those who like good rock it's amazing. Check the site to find more CD's related with him.
