This was the first Bryan Adams release I enjoyed. I did sell it, but it had a few cool songs like the title track. Decent disc, but not one of my faves from him.

From: juan carlos Date: January 21, 2009 at 22:38
Another Great BAīs Album. "The Only One" is a great opener, "Cuts Like A Knife"(a great Hit indeed!) "Straight From The Heart" "This Time" are Classics on "the best of" Bryan Adams but donīt forget about "What's It Gonna Be" MR/AOR heaven! and the ballad "The Best Was Yet To Come".. Because Reckless came after this.. 9/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: January 26, 2009 at 0:25

After 'Reckless', definitely my other BA fave disc and one of his most consistent somgwise aswell. The title track is a great tune aswell as the excellent 'Don't Leave Me Lonely', 'Take Me Back', 'This Time' and pretty much all the rest following close behind. Absolutely nothing on here that I would call filler in the slightest. All in all, a pretty damned fine disc and one right near the top in Mr.Adams catalogue.

A good album by this Canadian artist...tracks 4(nice one),5,6,7(AOR feel),8,9 & 10(nice one too)are in my book for sure...this release was like the warming up to his later stardom .85/100
