It's mostly got good ballads such as : Heat of the Night, Only the Strong Survive and Hearts on Fire. You'll also enjoy the hard rock tunes like : Victim of Love, Into the Fire.
I really love listening to this album even today! A must have for all.
As a long-time die-hard fan I keep putting on songs from this one, while also skipping some. Here's why:
- Heat of the Night: the whole song almost seems like it's played too slow, which takes out the drive. I guess he plays it faster live. It's a memorable song, though.
- Into the Fire: the title track features a quite simple guitar riff based on D/Dsus2/A/Asus2 chords that are played with a slightly dirty clean guitar sound, which is a great choice. The lyrics are powerful and make this one a keeper.
- Victim of Love: a slow rock ballad about heart ache. Not really my favourite, although has a strong chorus.
- Another Day: an upbeat song about everyday life, pretty unsignificant to me.
- Native Son: my absolute favourite Bryan Adams song, not only on this album. The lyrics are smart, well chosen and very moving. I think the native Canadians are grateful for Bryan telling a story from their point of view. Keith Scott's solo guitar work on this song is phenomenal and totally worth mentioning! I read he was given more freedom to come up with unconventional melodies and he delivered! I just sat down to transcribe the whole song, so I looked at his playing note by note. Especially the second solo features stuff I've never heard him play, like multiple fast-played arpeggios in a very well-chosen manner. His guitar sound is perfect, the right amount of gain and reverb! Amazing!Read more ›
This album did not approach the volume of sales that "Reckless" did. However, this album took the next step in Bryan Adams' career and froma quality standpoint, reached heights well and beyond what "Reckless" had set. Bryan who now is getting closer to age 30 in this album gets away from his tales of a college-age male and starts to explore more serious themes in life. It's clear that the commerical success of "Reckless" put Adams in the spotlight and probably had to make him grow up quickly. Now we see a new found maturity in Adams while maintaining the rock and roll edge and intensity that Adams had brought to all of his previous work.
No doubt, this album is a masterpiece and gets my nod for "1987 Album of the Year".
"Heat of the Night": is the first track on the album. It was also the first released single and was a Top 10 hit. It is the most widely known single on the album. It's a solid track in its own right. It really does provide a nice launching pad from "Reckless" in that it does have the rock and roll edge, but it does show the more mature Adams. Perhaps Adams explores the pressures he found in real-life as a music icon when he says "Couldn't take the pressure, had to leave it behind".Read more ›
"Heat Of The Night" was the first single of the album, and there's a bluesy lean towards the song. This was the only Top Ten single from Into The Fire.
The title track is a light philosophical rocker on life and its pains, and is a sure sign of the maturity he embarked on during his later albums. He's a stark realist, given, "You could wait for your dreams to come true/but time has no mercy/time won't stand still for you." The title lyric has similar tones: "Well, I know what your heart desires/but you can't take it with you into the fire."
Those who've been given the shaft on love will find their song on the third single, "Victim Of Love", which is my favourite song here. The part where the guitars stop with only the quiet percussion, makes the song wistful with Bryan's voice, which is down to a softened and tender rasp. Other times, he screams as if to stifle the pain. Love this lyric: "It's a table for one and a broken heart to go." Keith Scott's fiery guitar does wonders in this rock ballad.
The stripped down but engaging "Another Day" is a somber look at the day-to-day look at the perils of unemployment. As the song opens, the protagonist has spent his unemployment check, probably on drink, as he can't remember the previous night, and has bills to pay.Read more ›
