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 1970s. --Geoffrey Himes

Starting off with "Summer of '69" and moving on through "It's Only Love" with Tina Turner, "Run To You", "Cut's Like A Knife" & "Kids Wanna Rock", things are on a consistant high.
In truth the slow stuff doesn't spoil things. The reason being that he does them so well. Despite being at number one for 3 or 4 years(!) "(Everything I Do) I Do It FOr You" is an excellant song. "Heat OF The Night" is full of enough emotion to stand on it's feet and "Please Forgive Me" brings things to a pleasing close.
Much better than the next Best Of, and well worth singing along to at the top of your voice, in an open car(!)
It says a lot that the only song I'm not overly fond of on here is "Kids Wanna Rock" - and even that's perfectly listenable. The rest of the material is almost wholly brilliant and are amongst the best written, produced and performed songs you will ever hear from the soft rock genre.Read more ›
Loved most of them when released and great to here them in one place.
As another reviewer said I think this is the best stuff (or I guess the bits I most like).
If you like this try Bob Seger - The Distance
Moving on, this album is perhaps one of the greatest albums ever! It's a shame it doesn't have a couple of live tracks since Adams is such a wonderful live performer, but nevermind that, here is the best of his in-studio tracks.
The shotgun snare drum hit at the start of Summer of '69 throws you right in with his now most recognisable song ever. That gets you bouncing and singing straight away to the feel-good hit before slowing down for the early "straight from the heart". It's great to see only 3 songs were selected from his best-selling "Waking up the Neighbours" album from 1991 and the influence was on his previous music, mostly that of 1984s "Reckless".
The original song "Please forgive me" is the perfect way to finish the album, the new song more than matches up to the gigantic hit single "(Everything I do) I Do It For You" and leaves the gateway open with Bryan sounding better than ever and this album would be followed up by the brilliant "18 'til I Die".
I recommend either this or the recently released "Anthology" as the first Bryan Adams album you buy, followed by "18 til i die" and "reckless" if you like what you hear, which I'm sure you will. 5 Stars!

Great CD. great songs and great to sing along to at home or in the car. Love it.Published 4 months ago by Lynne Forbes
Plenty of energy here and some memorable songs. The good songs are great and the rest are, well, average but a useful addition for those who appreciate this style of rock music.Published 4 months ago by Mike Harding
