3.0 out of 5 stars Turning point album, but in a good way or not?, 8 Sep 2013
This review is from: Waking Up The Neighbours (Audio CD)
I remember buying this when it came out and a bit put off by the Def Leppard feel. Having played Reckless to death some years before I had also stumbled across Into The Fire afterwards - not a commonly stocked CD in many stores at the time - and whilst not another Reckless, it was an album that had a real pull to it, although it was a BA album no one had seemingly heard of before the Everything I Do single changed everything. Then Waking up the Neighbours emerged on the Back of Everything I Do and BA was on everyone's CD shelf.
My reaction to waking up the Neighbours was that it sounded like Brian Adams doing a Def Leppard album. Some great songs on it but a more commercial, over-produced feel. it's still, in my view, the kind of BA album you have to be in the mood for.

My favourite BA albums were reckless, cuts like a knife and IntoThe Fire. Even now they are usually choices I make before Waking up the Neighbours. Neighbours was probably the album that put BA into the history books, but to me his (then) little known Into the Fire is the album that has lasted the test of time much more favourably.
