07102014 - Bryan Adams "Tracks of My Years"

This album could have been stickered with the message "sounds exactly as expected". One look at the tracklist, and you can imagine how Adams will perform the various songs. Oh, did I not mention that, apart from one song (two on the deluxe version), these are all covers? Adams does The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, Smokey Robinson, Beach Boys and more, and makes everything sound like Bryan Adams. You decide if this is a good thing or not. Let's face it, although "Reckless", an album that celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, remains a true melodic rock classic, it's all been a bit boring since then. There's been the big ballads - especially THAT ballad - but Adams has obviously forgotten completely that the kids wanna rock, which is a damn shame. Somebody should remind him, perhaps get him to do some shows where he plays "Reckless" in its entirety, because this is a snoozefest that doesn't do Adams any favours, nor does it improve on any of the originals (as if!). I'm sure it was fun playing these songs,  but apart from the album cover there's little to get anyone else excited. And it's too bad he's not covering Ryan Adams!
