Rule The World

Review So Far So Good offers up 13 of his previous hits plus a new song, "Please Forgive Me," a gooey, Michael Bolton-like ballad. The album starts out with "Summer of '69," the appealing autobiographical song about the 10-year-old Adams learning to play his first guitar in Ontario, and includes "(Everything I Do) I Do for You," the synth-laced ballad that wound up in the Guinness Book of World Records after topping the British singles charts for 16 weeks. With its over-the-top, gravelly vocals, So Far So Good reminds one of Rod Stewart's 1980s work when he was coasting on past achievements. Unfortunately, Adams has never had a period like Stewart's glory years in the '70s. --Geoffrey Himes
Songs Of Experience [Deluxe Edition]

Review Since its release in 1984, 'Reckless' has sold over 12 million copies worldwide. It has spawned huge hits such as 'Run to You', 'Kids Wanna Rock', 'Somebody', 'Summer of '69', 'One Night Love Affair' and 'It's Only Love' a duet with the incomparable Tina Turner. 'Reckless' also gave Bryan his first U.S. #1 on Billboard with 'Heaven' as well as a Diamond Award for over a million sold in his home country of Canada. The album was the turning point in Adams' career, leading him to tour all over the world and garner legions of fans with his legendary live shows.

The 'Reckless' reissue has been personally overseen by Bryan working with many of the original team including Bob Clearmountain, Bob Ludwig and Jim Vallance. The 2014 deluxe remaster by Bob Ludwing enticingly includes seven previously unreleased bonus tracks. These tracks were written as demos with Jim Vallance - the co-writer on the Reckless album. Of utmost interest to fans will be the actual inclusion of the track 'Reckless' which due to deadlines did not make it onto the original album.
Diamonds [3 CD Box Set][Deluxe Edition]

Review Bryan Adams' thirteenth studio album, Get Up, is a solid collection of beautifully-crafted rock songs, from the fast and furious up-tempo tracks such as lead song 'Brand New Day,' 'You Belong To Me' and 'Thunderbolt,' to the gentler songs such as 'Don't Even Try' and 'We Did It All.' Produced by Jeff Lynne (ELO, Traveling Wilburys), Get Up is one of Bryan's strongest efforts to date.
I Wish You Love: More From The Bodyguard

Review This really is a "best-of," not merely a greatest-hits package. Bryan's breakthrough '80s hits Run to You and Summer of '69 join his '90s #1 smashes (Everything I Do) I Do It for You; All for Love (with Rod Stewart and Sting), and Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? ; his MTV unplugged version of his hit Please Forgive Me; When You're Gone (with Melanie C.), and eight more!
I Knew You When[Deluxe Edition]

Review If Bryan Adams's no-frills, blue-collar image evokes a Canadian take on Springsteen, his voice--and especially his pop sensibility--recalls Rod Stewart during his post-Faces Top 40 years. There's a deceptively effortless sincerity that masks the sometimes mundane themes of the infectious hits (the cheap nostalgia of "Summer of '69" and the various romantic concerns of "Run to You," "The Best of Me," and "Please Forgive Me") gathered on this updated hits collection. (Just five of the tracks appear on his previous So Far, So Good anthology.) It's hardly surprising to learn that Adams began his career as a tunesmith covered by everyone from BTO and Loverboy to Kiss and Bonnie Tyler. That eclecticism bubbles up throughout this modern compilation, from the flamenco flavors of Don Juan De Marco's "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman" to the MTV Unplugged classical-strings-backed rendition of "I'm Ready" and the surprisingly effective electronica of "Cloud Number Nine." This collection chronicles Adams's rise from '80s AOR (album-oriented-rock) contender to '90s MOR (middle-of-the-road) superstar, thanks to his Grammy- and Oscar-winning hit "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" from Robin Hood and harmonizing with Sting and Stewart on Three Musketeers' "All for Love." --Jerry McCulley
Sweet Southern Sugar (Explicit Version)

Review 2010 release from the Canadian rocker, an inspired collection of minimally arranged hits culled from Adams' impressive body of work spanning three decades. Recorded in spring of 2010 during his "Bare Bones Tour," the disc captures a raw Adams, featuring only his distinctive voice and guitar, accompanied on select songs by keyboardist Gary Breit, lending a newfound appreciation and perspective to what many consider some of the most beloved songs in pop/rock music.
Jeff Lynne's ELO - Wembley or Bust (2 CD/1 Blu-Ray)

Review Bryan Adams was played a great deal on the radio in 1984/5; his music was the most radio-friendly rock to have been heard in a long time and where on earlier records Adams had spiced up his songs with traces of social consciousness, this set is back squarely in love-and-lust territory.
