Liked Reckless? You'll love this!

There have been a fair few negative reviews of this album, all of which I feel are unjustified. This is an album of variety, and the sound is still very much Bryan Adams - you can hear the influence of 'Run To You' in 'Open Road' (one of my favourites on the record - and im sure Open Road will join the long list of Bryan Adams classics in the future) and East Side Story is so infectious that you will struggle to stop yourself dancing along to it... the mark of any good song!
I have to admit, I find 'Flying' a little slow, but it's a grower, definitely.
Having just heard him on his Room Service tour, I can confirm that this new album sounds just as good live - and comparing the old with the new, Room Service matches up to the original favourites - Heaven, Summer of 69, Run To You.... the list goes on.
If you have loved Bryans old music, then you will definitely love this record as well. Naturally his music has matured, but he hasnt worsened with age as many artists do, he's simply evolved and carried his music into the 21st century (successfully!)
p.s.... he's a nice guy too!
