Tunnel of Love from Bruce Springsteen.
I was looking for not just another huge seller to follow up the first huge seller. Hysteria following Pyromania. Bad following Thriller. There are plenty of examples. But I was after an important album, that wasn’t simply releasing Part II of the original Monster Album. And with Tunnel of Love, the Boss achieved that.
It still sold plenty, but had a diverse lineup of songs, different musical styles completely on some tracks, and he even pushed the envelope with a kinda sorta concept to the entire thing.
Tunnel of Love, a clear winner.
