It's not hard to figure out why Bryan Guy Adams called this album what he did. What do you do when you're recording the follow up to your tenth album? Exactly. He's also at an age where he can never go back to the summer of '69, the kids that wanna rock COULD be the grandkids and straight from the heart could refer to angina, so the teen rocker status is no longer plausible.
Any musician with class and dignity moves on, moves forward, and creates. We've all seen the pathetic rockers who are trying to look younger than their kids and we know that they 'can't get no satisfaction' no matter what they do. Thank God Bryan had some common sense. He recorded a disc that isn't trying to rehash the oldies, but he isn't ready for the 'rock walker' yet!
The first single released was "I Thought I'd Seen Everything", which is an up-tempo love song done in true Bryan Adams fashion. This is his signature sound at play here. "Tonight We Have Stars" has a good punch to it and sounds a lot like a Tom Cochrane song. The best song on the whole disc is "I Ain't Losin' The Fight". This is the closest anything on this CD comes to an all-out rocker set in the style of Bryan's past glories, a song that rocks out yet could still find a home on CMT. This song shows just how much the line between rock and new country has been blurred. It's very reminiscent of a Don Henley song. As for the other tracks; there are hints of U2 on "We Found What We Were Looking For"; the Bruce Springsteen-esque "Broken Wings" is a great number and Oasis come to mind on first hearing "Somethin' To Believe In" and "Mysterious Ways". Even with saying that, the songs still sound totally original and represent a familiar artist we've grown up listening to.

It seems like whenever Bryan Adams releases an album there's some kind of expectation for him to deliver another Reckless or Waking Up The Neighbours. Well in truth 11 is nothing like those two albums. The album cover of 11, showing the rocker playing guitar in a suit, gives the listener a clue as to the type of music to expect on this album. This isn't the young guy in a white t-shirt and blue jeans blasting out Summer of 69, but rather a more mature, sophisticated artist mellowing out a bit. Whereas his earlier albums usually had a mixture of driving rock singalongs and piano-based power ballads, this one pretty much sticks to mid-tempo rock, smooth but with an acoustic edge. It's a logical progression as he's been building on this sound pretty much for the last decade; that's not necessarily a bad thing, although someone expecting an album with another Somebody or Only Thing That Looks Good On Me will be disappointed. Even the closest thing to a real rocker on the album, Oxygen, has a sombre feel to it. I Thought I'd Seen Everything probably has the best chance of being a concert staple, We Found What We Were Looking For is quite a pretty ballad, and Flower Gone Wild is an interesting song with something to say about today's young celebrities. The rest of the album plays out nicely, although it's more of a grower as opposed to one that grabs you right away. While it may not rank with the two classics mentioned earlier, it shows Bryan Adams can still put out decent music decades after those two albums came out.

When I saw Bryan Adams in concert two years ago, I was frankly disappointed. Not necessarily because the concert was 'bad', but because it was too professional. Adams has been doing this for years, this arena pop/rock with little references to the past, songs about sweet (or sour) love, big catchy rock tunes with flat production that allow his grainy voice to soar overtop... in short, the concert almost seemed like a bit of a nostalgia set, done by someone who, although not quite jaded, has been pulling out the same set year after year. One-hit wonder Daniel Powter opened for Adams and the passion in his performance and freshness of his craft was a delight and eclipsed Adams' one-note Canadian-nice-guy performance.

'11' is a good album. It has all the usual Bryan Adams tricks -- the country-tinged downhome songs (I Ain't Losin' the Fight), the heavier beat-insistent rock songs ('Oxygen'), the big romantic ballads ('Broken Wings', 'Somethin' to Believe In'), and so on and so forth. Although Adams has ditched the boyish love songs and replaced them with something more mature and adult-contemporary, he has generally stuck with the same sound as his 80s and 90s gems. That being said, this isn't by any means a bad album, merely an un-original one. However, Adams is a Canadian staple and icon - and if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Almost four years after Bryan Adams bounced back on the scene after taking a break from recording for six years, we are given "11". This also marked the return of the partnership of Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance for the first time in years.

I actually took the day off school to purchase this album with my best friend, Megan. Prior to it's release I had heard small snippets of the album on Bryan Adams' website and my initial impression was that this was in no way going to compare to "Room Service". At the time of it's release, "Room Service" was a breath of fresh air and Bryan Adams really came back with the perfect pop/rock album that could be easily accessible to the new and old audience.

However, "11" is a different story. I remember when I first heard the title I was a little skeptical. The title itself seemed rather bland compared to past album titles like "Waking Up The Neighbours" or "Reckless" but when I heard the reasoning behind the title I came to understand a little more - that it was his eleventh studio album and I guess when you can't come up with a title - why not?

This album is a softer album, and some of the songs seem a little lazy and forced, there are even times where Bryan Adams himself seems like he isn't feeling the music.

Does that make it a terrible album? No. The first three songs are enjoyable, "Tonight We Have The Stars", "I Thought I'd Seen Everything", and "I Ain't Losing The Fight". "I Thought I'd Seen Everything" is a great first single - classic up-beat Bryan Adams' love song at it's best, the opening guitar riffs on "Tonight We Have The Stars" is an instant hook to the album and a great way to kick off the album. I believe it was the second single.

"I Ain't Losing The Fight" is my favourite song on the album.
