Music Review: Bryan Adams “Tracks Of My Years”

badams-tracksNowadays it seems that every artist eventually records a “covers album” and Canadian Rocker Bryan Adams takes his shot at it with his just released CD, “The Tracks Of My Years.”

For “Tracks Of My Years” Adams has chosen songs that for some reason have stuck with him since he was a pre-rockstar teenager.

Instead of the run of the mill often covered classics, Adams gives us an inspired track list with songs such as “Kiss and Sat Goodbye,” ” Down on The Corner,” “Sunny” and “Never My Love.”

Adams even throws in a new original co-written by his longtime writing partner Jim Vallance who helped craft many of Bryan’s biggest hits.  The song is called “She Knows Me” and the problem with including it here is that it made me long for an all new Bryan Adams album!

“She Knows Me” is so good that it easily stands shoulder to shoulder with most of the songs covered here. I also have a problem with the album sequencing as this new song is slotted in the #2 position. In my opinion if you’re going to include a new song on a covers album then it should either go first or last.

The Tracks Of My Years” is a great record and definitely serves as a reminder of how great Bryan Adams still is! Here’s hoping that the song “She Knows Me” is just the beginning of what we can expect on future Adams’ releases.

Drumroll please… 8 out of 10 drumsticks!!!
