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

"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.Read more ›
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!Read more ›

As a teenager, I bought this album for "I Do It For You," and it's the only notable song on the album. The songs are boring and formulaic. Read morePublished on Feb. 24 2004
