18 TIL I DIE
Bryan Adams is a Bruce Springsteen for blue collar workers. Perennially in love with rock & roll, on this mid-90s album he struts his stuff with an unselfconscious, schoolboy swagger. "I'll be 18 'til I die", the Canadian boasts on the title track--and this determination is soon made apparent on unsubtle tracks like "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You", the appallingly-titled "Your Underwear (I Wanna Be)" and "Black Pearl" (a paean to black women, crooned about in lazy stereotypes). The 12-bar boogie rules on this album--that is, when Adams isn't falling back on his Unique Selling Point, The Ballad, as on the epic "I Think About You". Still, many hipsters enjoy Adams more than they'd care to admit, and 18 Til I Die is such snotty, unashamed Cochran-loving rock, it's hard not to feel affection for it. --Everett True --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

She loves all the songs on the album as I do. What a mixture of styles! He makes you laugh with 'I Want to be your Underwear' and then you cry over 'Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman?'.
I think that is one of the things I love most about the album. I hate to put on an album which will set a mood for its entire length. You know, all sad songs and such. This one stimulates all your emotions. Plus, they are all true to Brian Adams, he writes great songs.
Our daughter moved, along with 'MY' album, to another state some months ago. When she came home for Thanksgiving she brought it with her and asked me if she could keep it. I let her have it and now I must buy another copy. It's nice to know that some things can bridge the generation gap, especially where music is concerned.
The feel-good rocker "The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me is You" and the slick ballad "Let's Make a Night to Remember" made well-deserved dents on VH1 and rock stations everywhere. Unfortunately, plenty of other deserving cuts were overlooked by the public eye. "Do to You" and the title track are among Bryan's best examples of crank-the-amps-and-let-'er-rip, and "I Wanna Be Your Underwear," however crass the title may sound, has clever lyrics, an infectiously funky backdrop and one of the catchiest choruses of the decade (not to mention endless possibilities for a music video). Elsewhere, "Star" features a sampled drum loop adding a fresh twist to a classic Adams ballad, while "I'll Always Be Right There" ditches rhythm and finds Bryan accompanied by a warm and elegant string section.
This isn't to say "18 Til I Die" is without fault. "It Ain't a Party if You Can't Come 'Round" is the sort of thing Adams has done a few times too many, and "Black Pearl," singing the praises of interracial sex, isn't so much a politically correct rocker as it is a pale "Brown Sugar" rewrite. But missteps are forgiven when we're treated to the inclusion of "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman," Bryan's gorgeous, flamenco-influenced ballad from the film "Don Juan de Marco"...cynics leery of movie tie-ins be damned; this track is beautiful and one for the ages.Read more ›
