The Bridge is the tenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on July 28, 1986. It was the last studio album produced by Phil Ramone as well as the last to feature Joel's long-time bassist Doug Stegmeyer and rhythm guitarist Russell Javors. The album yielded several successful singles, including "A Matter of Trust" (peaking at No. 10), "Modern Woman" (which also appeared on the Ruthless People soundtrack, peaking at No. 10), and "This Is the Time" (peaking at No. 18).
Riding high on the blockbuster An Innocent Man and with a new jet-setting bride at his side, Billy Joel took full advantage of the high life, as is clear from The Bridge, an album that unwittingly celebrates the excesses of the Reagan years.

Album · 1986 · 9 Songs. Billy Joel seizes the mid-’80s moment on the cameo-studded, synth-embracing The Bridge. The raucous Modern Woman is a sax-and-synth rave-up with Joel leaning into his gritty vocal; A Matter of Trust is lean yet openhearted, its muscular guitar lines adding fire to Joel’s ruminations on love. Guests like Cyndi Lauper (who provides backing vocals on the strummy Code of Silence ) and Ray Charles (on the resplendent ballad Baby Grand ) give Joel new textures to play off as he shifts his gaze toward pop’s future. The Bridge Billy Joel.

The Bridge is the tenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on July 29, 1986. The bridge may be the third eight-bar phrase in a thirty-two-bar form (the B in AABA), or may be used more loosely in verse-chorus form, or, in a compound AABA form, used as a contrast to a full AABA section. The term comes from a German word for bridge, Steg, used by the Meistersingers of the 15th to 18th century to describe a transitional section in medieval bar form.
