Product Description

Amazon.ca

After a three-year recording hiatus, Bryan Adams made a superstar return with Waking Up the Neighbours--a 15-song opus. Though panned by some for its polish, fans embraced the 1991 release, co-produced and co-written by Adams and "Mutt" Lang. The album won converts, too, thanks largely to the inclusion of the ballad "(Everything I Do) I Do it for You." That single represented Adams's first musical foray onto the silver screen and its tremendous success all but eclipsed that of its cinematic vehicle, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Also powering the disc is the infectious "Can't Stop this Thing We Started," the rock-solid, bluesy lead-off track "Is Your Mama Gonna Miss Ya?" and the guitar-driven, would-be party anthem "House Arrest." Other material, like the keyboard-infused "Do I Have to Say the Words?" and "Thought I'd Died and Gone to Heaven," found Adams playing balladeer, with varying degrees of success. --Chuck Molgat

4.0 out of 5 stars Adams Goes Back to Basics, but with some Changes May 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
I consider Bryan Adams' 1987 "Into the Fire" his best album. It was his most complete album and showed a more serious and socially aware side to Adams that had not been seen on his first 4 albums. However, "Into the Fire" didn't generate the commercial success that its predecessor "Reckless" had done. As a result, Bryan definitely went back to basics on "Waking Up The Neighbours" by returning to those songs that are of a 20 something male adult. Going back to basics didn't come without change. The good news is despite the changes, Bryan still manages to put out a solid album and once again had the major commerical success he had with "Reckless". The bad news is that some of the changes to affect the depth of this collection and as a result this is more of a 4 star effort as opposed to the last 3 albums that I rated 5 stars.
"Waking Up the Neighbours" marked the end of the Bryan Adams/Jim Vallance songwriting combination that had been the staple of the 1st five albums. Adams and Vallance would combine for only 4 songs on this album as Bryan started a new era with Robert "Mutt" Lange (Better known as Mr. Shania Twain) as his main songwriting partner. It is also worth noting that Lange would be credited as a co-writer on the songs Adams did with Vallance. Another change is that Bob Clearmountain, the master mixer who would co-produce the last 4 studio albums for Bryan Adams was no longer the co-producer. In once again is Lange who also takes the co-producer duties while Clearmountain still stays on as the mixer. Bryan's studio musicians are still in tact as Mickey Curry (Drums), Tommy Mandel (Keyboards), Dave Taylor (Bass), and Keith Scott (Guitar) still prove they are as good you can get in the business.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can definately wake up the neighbours... Oct. 30 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is was the second or third album I bought of Bryan's. Although, my mom had a copy so I listend to it and went out and bought my own. This album is Bryan's rockiest and ITS VERY LOUD.
Is Your Mama Gonna Miss Ya? 10/10 because its got a nice ring to it and makes ya wonder if mama is gonna miss her little rollin' stone.
Hey Honey - I'm Packin' You In! 10/10 because someone sounds like they were treating Bryan like crap and he had to get rid of 'em. Nice choice Bry! Put up with no crap.
Can't Stop This Thing We Started 10/10 I don't why really, its just got a nice ring to it and is a very beautiful rocky song!
Thought I'd Died and Gone To Heaven 10/10 Okay, so its horny big deal. Still a good tune and I love how he sings it.
Not Guilty 10/10 He's not guilty for fallen in love people, be happy for him!
Vanishing 10/10 although I don't really get the meaning of it, "Vanishing" is still a very awesome song.
House Arrest 10/10 Haha, I love this track. If I were a party animal this would be one of my anthems.
Do I Have To Say The Words? 10/10 Beautiful love song. Once again, Bry uses a very sincere voice here. Got his voice just makes me melt in every song but ok on with the next track...
There Will Never Be Another Tonight 10/10 on quote "RAISE SOME HELL!" Haha, this is my tune threw and threw.
All I Want Is You 10/10 I love how he compares things in this song. "Don't need a doctor, don't need a nurse. Don't need no prescription baby only make me feel worse." He's just saying he wants to be with his girl.
Depend On Me 10/10 I adore this song, he's saying that no matter what happens you can depend on him for anything. It makes me cry!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest rock albums ever made. June 24 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bryan Adams' Waking Up The Neighbours is arguably one of the best rock albums ever made, in history. I'd just like to address the people that are putting this album down for its lyrics and criticizing Adams for working with production-god Mutt Lange: wake up! This album sold 15 million copies worldwide, so I'd say you and others with your opinions are definitely the minority. So what if the majority of the album's songs have a love-based theme? People relate to love! That's why this is such a great album. You can relate to it. Also, there are some great party tunes on here. People like to have fun, and they can relate to love. Duh! But on the musical hand, Mutt Lange and Bryan made the music completely flawless. It's impossible to find even one miniscule imperfection on any track. And although nearly eighty minutes long, it is truly amazing that an artist can have a whopping fifteen tracks and have everyone be high-caliber. When I first heard this I thought, this had to be a long album, because if it hadn't have been nearly eighty minutes, a much-needed song may have been left out. Every one of these songs could have (and should have) been a radio smash. The songs are incredible, BA's voice is magnificent, the band is superb, and Mutt Lange...well, he's just a god. I consider it a sacrilege not to own this album! I don't care who you are and what kind of music you like, just BUY IT!

2.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming Sept. 27 2001
Format:Audio CD
I will firmly admit that I am a Bryan fan, and will no doubt remain so regardless of what he churns out, but I try to forget his material from the 1990s. Everything from his first album through Reckless just got better and better, and Into the Fire was without doubt the best thing he ever did. That album, in fact, is one of my top ten favorites by any artist. But listening to all the Amazon reviews raving about Waking Up the Neighbours, I wonder if any of you have ever listened to his previous work at all. Fans waited four years or so for Adams to come out with this album, and it appears to me that, after having his fallout with Jim Vallance, Adams rummaged around for any co-writer he could find, and the result was this 80-minute-long buckshot spray of unsatisfying garage-band pop ("hey, with 15 tracks, a couple are BOUND to hit the charts"). For this album, Bryan apparently decided that he needed to reduce both his vocabulary and the range of his subject matter. In 1987 he wrote songs about the First World War, the surviving pride of the First Nations despite generations of indignities, introspective longing for a distant loved one, and the existential, dark and yet ultimately optimistic title track, "Into the Fire." In 1991, however, he churned out a dozen odes to superficiality, running (to vary a quote from a famous film review) the gamut of themes from A to B. Basically, it was this album which made me start listening to people who said that Adams had sold out, and his subsequent efforts ("18 'til I die", Bryan? Oh, spare me... ) which convinced me that he had. NOTE TO MR. ADAMS -- you're a good 25 years out of high school now. That means you no longer have to pretend you're stupid to be cool. You have already convinced us you're cool. We like you. Now please stop writing this drivel and get back to composing some quality.
