Bryan Adams-18 'Til I Die (A&M)

 

Okay, it was kind of funny a few months ago when Metallica tried to trick us into thinking they were grunge. But I have to draw the line if Bryan Adams thinks that he can pull it off. Being grunge is more than losing twenty pounds and not shaving and showering for a week, and you can't record a punk record on the French Riviera! (which, granted, might be as good an excuse as any not to record a punk album.)  

 

True, Adams has cut down on the treacly ballads that have become his stock in trade (which is probably why this has been by far his worst selling album,) but the dumb rock highs he used to be able to hit seem to have slipped out of his grasp on "The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You" and the truly repellent "(I Wanna Be Your) Underwear."
