Product Description

18 TIL I DIE

Amazon.ca

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.

As a die-hard Bryan Adams fan, I was very disappointed with this outing. Without the input of Jim Vallance and Bob Clearmountain (song writers and producers of "reckless", "Cut's like a knife", etc.), Adams song-writing has clearly gone down hill. Klunkers such as "I want to be your underwear" and "Black Pearl" are scrapings from the bottom of the barrel. "Mutt" Lange's finger-prints are all over this album, from the corn-ball lyrics to the hackned riffs and choruses. Mutt produced one of the greatest albums in rock history, Def Lep's Pyromania, but since has done nothing but trivialize the genre. I'm sorry, but this album lacks quality and substance. The production is good, though. The vocals and guitar work are clear and crisp, also a Lange trade mark. I look forward to an Adams album when he's reunited with Vallance and Clearmountain.

Bryan Adams was a huge pop star back in the late '80s and early '90s, but this is the album that ultimately derailed his career. Released in 1996, the album marked the birth of the newer, "cooler" Bryan Adams: the one with slicked back hair. The image overhaul unfortunately overshadowed the album, which had its fair share of hits. "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman" was the big hit here, and deservedly so. However, the album has just as many misses as hits: "We're Gonna Win" is Adams' sad attempt to create something of a stadium staple. Also, song titles like "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You" and "(I Wanna Be) Your Underwear" are just creepy from a guy who once told us that everything he did, he did it for us. And that's the main problem with this album: Adams was the "nice guy" of rock and roll for too long. His new image and slickly produced album just don't quite work. Buy his "Best of Me" collection, or "Have You Ever..." as a single, and leave it at that.

...But I don't care much for this album at all. I like the albums, "On A Day Like Today", "Waking Up The Neighbours" and love "Reckless", but "18 Til I Die" is a mess. The first track, "The Only Thing That Looks Good..." and "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" are good songs, but that's it. These two songs book-end an album of incoherent lyrics, strange teenage boy-like fantasies, and pop-rock melodies which have no hooks to them. I really do feel like this album was made by a group of teenage kids in a garage band. It feels like a step backwards for Bryan. We're talking 1970's. Even the romantic ballads feel contrived and un-romatic this time around. Strange and disappointing album from a great pop-rocker.

This is a great album, one of my all time favorites. I brought it when it was first released. I lived in Australia at the time. I am in my 40s and I lent it to our 18 year old daughter, who is generally into all that hip-hop and rap..., but after she played this album she was hooked and her whole musical tastes are now developing for all kinds of music and many different artists.
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.

This was a good album, but as BA is my favorite singer, I hold him to high standards. This album wasn't quite up to them...It's fortunate for him that I've bought all of his albums from "Waking Up The Neighbors" onward. This album has some awesome tracks, "I'll Always Be Right There," "I Think About You," the seminal "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman," the cheeky and funny "I Wanna Be (Your Underwear)," as well as "Let's Make A Night To Remember" "Star," and "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You." I like "We're Gonna Win" as well, though it is not much like his other songs. In some of the worse tracks on this album, though, it seems like Bryan needs to grow up a little. I'm 18 myself, and I certainly don't want to be "18 'Till I Die." The title track, as well as the horrible song "Black Pearl." keep this album from getting 5 stars. Shame on you BA! You made a good album, but it should've been better...

A Greatest Hits package signals the peak of an artist's commercial and critical success all too often. But Bryan Adams showed he still has plenty to offer on "18 Til I Die," his first release after his "So Far So Good" compilation.
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.
