Now that's what I'm talking about.

5 out of 5 stars

Including songs such "Run to you", "Remember" and "One night love affair", this double CD compliation is anyone's ticket to some seriously good stadium rock.

Bryan Adam's talent of capturing 'the moment' is what makes his material just so listenable. Whether or not you might call yourself a Bryan Adams fan, there is bound to be at least one song on here which you will undoubtedly find yourself loving because it sums up one particular moment of your life.

In my opinion, it doesn't matter how intelligent song lyrics are, how good the guitaring is, how good the vocals are…if the music grabs you by your senses then it's worth it. The song lyrics are no Bob Dylan, the guitaring is no Brian May and the drumming is no Ringo…but Bryan Adams does well in all aspects of the music. The lyrics are truthful, capturing the thoughts of one particular moment, like when you meet someone new and you think you are head over heels over them. The music itself is something you can move to, sing along to and something which would be fantastic to hear live.

Not only does he look good, but his unique voice is something which distinguishes him from other artists.

It's just so easy to listen to. I'm not afraid to admit I like Bryan Adams…he's a legend! Conquer your Bryan Adams social isolation fear (something which I believe exists…for no good reason!!!) and go forth and buy a copy!

  6. His voice isn't that unique, it's one of the vocal styles which is more easily imitated. Not that I can do it, I can't sing, but the style is easy.

    I do like some of his stuff, it's catchy and uplifting. Although, if you want to talk him up i'd question your choice of comparisons for lyrics/guitar/drumming because you're basically saying he's less than average :p

  8. Hurrah for Bryan Adams! Definitely one of the more unfairly slated artists of our time.

  9. Whatever, Stuart!

    Andy: I was saying that each individual component of his music alone is most likely less than average…but all together it's brilliant. And his voice is unique…i don't think i've heard one really like it. (NOT Jon Bon Jovi.)

    Gav: The Queen Mum.

    For the record – I like Bryan Adams. Except 'Everything I Do' – that makes me wretch every time I hear it.

    08 Jan 2006, 12:32

  12. Everything I Do's amazing!
    I sing it when drunk along with Angel by Robbie!

    08 Jan 2006, 12:35

  13. Everything I Do is one of those songs which people say they "just hate" yet love it really! :P

    Kunal knows the score! :D

    Errr…. no. Honest guv. Can't stand it. It's right up there with that bloody frog in my eyes.

  15. Ah shit, not the frog. NOT the frog!!! Surely Bryan is better than that.

    Who on earth liked that bloody frog anyway?

  16. Stuart Coles

    Bryan is better than the frog, just that song in particular that isn't…

    time to hang head in shame

    My sister has the frog single. I'll get me coat.
