Building the Bridge is the fourteenth studio album by REO Speedwagon. The album, which features mostly adult-oriented ballads, received mixed reviews from fans and is generally regarded as REO's weakest effort.[citation needed] It did not chart (it was the group's first non-charting album since 1972's R.E.O./T.W.O.)

The song "Building The Bridge" found its way to the White House, where President Clinton adopted it as the theme for his re-election campaign in 1996.[1]
