      best album ever made

      I am a MASSIVE Bryan Adams fan, I have been to almost 20 concerts and I know every single song by heart and in my humble opinion this is the best album ever made.

      It´s just pure rock n roll energy and it will put you in a rocky and happy mode every time you listen to it. There are some great classics on here, including "Everything I do (I do it for you)" which is one of the best selling ballads of all time.
      With that said, this is a rock album tho. The great riffs, the cheeky lyrics and the catchy chorus will go straight to your head and you will find yourself humming the songs in the supermarket.

      My personal favourites are "Not Guilty" and "Touch the hand" - the later a class song which any woman will find empowering and funny to listen to.

      The album kicks off with "Is your mama gonna miss ya?" with a great riff and powerful chords ringing true.

      The whole album is written by Adams and his song writing partner in crime Mutt Lange. The odd song also features Bryans older song writer partner Jim Vallance who earned a great success with Adams in the 80´s. Together they have written such a fun filled and rocky album that it´s just pure joy to listen to.

      Keep you ears open to the lead guitarist Keith Scott, probably the worlds most underrated lead guitarist who helped Adams write the classic riff to "summer of 69" and "run to you"

      What are you waiting for? Go get it!

        You have to get this!!

        Oh my God this album is so great!!! It is an oldie from 1991 and it has so many great songs on it including he never ending number one I am sure everyone remembers - Everything I Do I do It For You. This is a truly great song but don't let that be all you listen to. If you like Everything I Do then you will love Thought I'd Died And Gone To Heaven which is, in my opinion, even better than Everything I Do. Is a soft rock ballad which makes me go all gushy every time I hear it! Vanishing, Do I have To Say The Words, All I want Is You and Don't Drop That Bomb On Me are all soft rock type ballads - not as slow as the other two though and they are all very easy to listen to and you will soon find yourself humming along to them in no time. The rest of the album is what I call proper rock. All the songs are really catchy and great for doing a bit of air guitar when no one is looking!! My favourite song on this album is There Will Never Be Another Tonight it is just class, if you have never heard it head over to itunes for a thirty second listen, I guarantee you will want to buy it! This is a great album from a legend everyone should have it in their music collection.

          An album I think most people will enjoy listening to

          An album from way back in 1991, still sounds good though.Even though this wasnt one of Bryan Adams' most well known/commercial sounding albums I still feel its more than enjoyable to listen to,and it does have a couple of well known tracks on it such as Can't Stop This Thing We Started and Everything I Do I Do It For You

          In typical Bryan Adams style this album is very pop rock,its distinctive memorable and instaneously recognisable, its a good album.

          I enjoyed the raw unpolished sound, emotion and style that this whole album had to offer. For me this is probably one of his best albums to date,as I feel that each song is different and unique,from the more soppy love songs such as everything i do i do it for you to the more rocking tracks like Hey Honey - I'm Packin' You In.

          I think this album is just interesting to listen to,as if you listen to all the way through it takes you through a full circle/cycle of emotions. This is definately an album I would recommend to anyone,for me it just highlights even more how talented Bryan Adams is.

          The full track listing for the album I have is as follows:

          1. Is Your Mama Gonna Miss Ya?
          2. Hey Honey - I'm Packin' You In
          3. Can't Stop This Thing We Started
          4. Thought I'd Died And Gone To Heaven
          5. Not Guilty
          6. Vanishing
          7. House Arrest
          8. Do I Have To Say The Words?
          9. There Will Never Be Another Tonight
          10. All I Want Is You
          11. Depend On Me
          12. Everything I Do I Do It For You
          13. If You Wanna Leave Me Can I Come Too?
          14. Touch The Hand
          15. Don't Drop That Bomb On Me

            Waking Up the Neighbours is a great CD. Well, ok, I don't really listen to it now, but I thought it was a great tape when I first got it however long ago it was that it came out. Anyway, this of course has the classic "Everything I Do" but it also has some other great songs. I particularly like "If You're Gonna Leave Me Can I Come Too?". I don't think this album is showing its age that much, I mean I don't really listen to it a lot, but I'm not embarrassed to own it. It's got some great stuff on.

            His all time best album with his best selling single of all time 'Everything I do I do it for you'. This album has an abundance of fantastic riffs and tunes. All in all the album is one of his more rockier albums and is very easy to listen to. All the songs are written by Badams and Vallance and all the songs are worth a listen. In my opinion this is Bryan at his best, he seems to have turned into a 'pop' artist for the moment when really he is one of the greatest rock singers of all time. Definitely worth a listen!

            This album is probably most well know for it's ballads and with good reason. "(Everything I Do) I Do it for You" and "Thought I'd Died and Gone to Heaven" are arguably the best ballads Bryan Adams has ever done. Personally, though, I love this album for the rock, every bit as good as the "Summer of '69" days. I won't list everything, but the best are surely "Is Your Momma Gonna Miss Ya?", "Not Guilty", "There Will Never Be Another Tonight", and "Touch the Hand". Those that were put off by the ballads, don't worry, this album is still a great rock and roll record.

            Mention the name Bryan Adams among your friends and you will undoubtedly hear mixed opinions. Some will dislike his music and others will love it but all of them will have heard his hit single' (Everything I do) I do it for you'. This song is reason enough to buy the album but when you put it alongside such great tracks like 'Can't stop this thing we started' and 'All I want is you' you will be hard pressed to find a more worthy album for you hard earned money.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            The worst thing you could do with this album is judge it by it's most famous (or infamous depending on your point of view) song "Everything I Do, I Do It For You). Fotunately, most of the rest of the album is better than this. That said, some of it isn't much better. The album was released in 1991 and was a departure for the Canadian rocker as it was the first time that he hooked up with Mutt Lange (for anybody who has been on another planet lately he formally worked with Def Leppard and more recently is Shania Twain's husband & co writer). The result has Mr Lange's mark all over it. Catchy tunes with good hooks, big choruses and rockin' guitars. The problem with the album is that for every good 2 tracks, there is 1 dodgy one. Great songs like "There Will Never Be Another Tonight", "Touch The Hand" and "House Arrest" blend in with the less catchy tunes and the result is mediocrity. I'm a big Bryan fan but this isn't one of his most consistent efforts. Don't get me wrong, the great songs are great but there are too many tracks that just aren't good enough. This was an album made for the program function on your CD player to just play the better tracks. Miss the rest.
