As always, Bruce is fantastic, great album, lots of really good, early songs, easy listening, enjoy it a great deal.
Jane Diles
Released as the more personal, less commercial of his two simultaneous 1992 releases, Lucky Town is the true follow-up to Tunnel Of Love.
P Magnum
This is the real world, and the real world brings with it bumps and bruises as well as the redemptive power of love.

This is one of Bruce's most underrated CD's. It's the first album in many years where he didn't sound as if he was struggling with inner demons. The opening song, "Better Days," certainly makes this point in a forthright way. In addition, the title track rocks, "If I Should Fall Behind" is one of the Boss' most beautiful songs, and "Leap of Faith" uses biblical metaphors to describe the start of a delightful relationship. I also like the darker numbers "Souls of the Departed" and "The Big Muddy." But generally speaking, this is a sweet snapshot of secure love, in contrast to the collapsing romances depicted on Bruce's earlier album, The Tunnel of Love. You can usually see this CD in used CD bins. Don't hesitate to pick it up.

We're approaching 14 years now since this album was released. I can still remember the day I unwrapped it. I was a freshman in high school, timidly trying to straddle the line between the various musical factions of the day: R&B and Grunge. I knew there had to be something better, it just took a "Leap of Faith" to reach it.

I like to think my musical taste got better. These days, sorting my iPod by play count yields a pretty eclectic mix: The Shins, The White Stripes, DELTRON3030, Liz Phair, and Marty Robbins are all at or near the top. And, of course, the entire track list of Lucky Town is right up there with them.

I venture to say that I've listened to this album at least once every month in the last fourteen years, and often many more times. Every time I do, I'm 15 again, dreaming about a life yet to be lived with the kind of optimism and naivete that we adults take drugs to experience again.

Without gushing on and on about this album, I would like to thank The Boss for this often-overlooked gift. Four short months ago, my wife and I spent just under three minutes stumbling over each other in front of all our friends and family. Since the day I first heard it 14 years ago, "If I Should Fall Behind" was forever linked in my mind with what a marriage should be. In my mind, no other song has come close to pairing such a plaintive request with such a heartfelt assurance, intertwining them in a way that no one--even the coldest-footed groom--could misunderstand.

Buy this album. I promise you won't be sorry.

ME.

Lucky Town is the most Springsteenian of the two CDs released in 1992. Sonically, Human Touch is a direct descendant of the Born in the USA sessions with a focus on love more than any previous CD. Normally, listeners get the 'falling in love' CD and then the heartbreak CD. Look at the last two Sheryl Crow CDs for a taste of that. Not so Springsteen. Tunnel of Love was the cheating record, questioning his feelings and the efficacy of love itself. Then, Bruce falls in love, deeper than before, and writes a collection of songs about it. That's the bulk of Human Touch.

But Lucky Town shows the old Bruce reemerging, the disillusioned one, the one who doesn't want to believe in love--because the world is just too damn hard--but does so anyway. "Better Days," one of the two singles released in 1992 ("Human Touch" was the other) kicks off the CD with a rim shot and power chord you could put down in the rock-and-roll Bible, if there was one. What makes Springsteen unique when it comes to love songs is the types of couplets he chooses. This ain't some 70s-era flowery, string-laden love song. This is the real world, and the real world brings with it bumps and bruises as well as the redemptive power of love. Witness the first verse (and there's a lot there):

Well my soul checked out missing as I sat listening
To the hours and minutes tickin' away
Yeah, just sittin' around waitin' for my life to begin
While it was all just slippin' away.

I agree with Glenn J Wiener, with the music fan from Minneapolis, and with any others who say that this album is underrated. It is! I liked it a lot when it was released, and I still do. The songs are strong and the playing, while perhaps lacking some of the personality of the E Street band, is nevertheless workman-like and effective enough. And Bruce, who was obviously in a restless state when this (and Human Touch) was released, is in very good voice. Speaking personally, my wife and I used the beautiful If I Should Fall on a wedding mix CD we made to give to our guests. It's a gorgeous tune, as is Beautiful Reward. And songs like Better Days, Lucky Town and Leap of Faith sound triumphant. So it's a record that covers a handful of moods, but covers them very effectively, something Bruce Springsteen can do so very well.

If you read through the various reviews here you might get the impression that Bruce's "Happy" album is a lighthearted trip among the fluffy clouds but that wouldn't be accurate. Springsteen isn't some dreamy-eyed fella sitting peacefully in a garden full of fragrant flowers here, he's a guy emerging from a culvert covered in blood, sweat and tears who is relieved to find the light at the end of a dark tunnel. His voice is so great on this album, revealing a man who has rediscovered his faith in love. Overall it doesn't contain the musical power that he pulls out of the E Street Band but his emotion-filled vocals have never been more piercing and effective. These are terrific songs of triumph and hope and overcoming heartache through introspective perseverance.
