EDITORS’ NOTES

With his fourth album, Bryan Adams did what all cleanup hitters should do: knock out a grand slam. Reckless is so overstuffed with classic-rock-radio perennials, it practically qualifies as a greatest-hits collection. Arena-ready anthems like “Summer of ’69” and “Somebody” stayed true to Adams’ rocker roots, but the simmering intensity of “Run to You,” the lighter-sparking “Heaven,” and the soul-powered Tina Turner duet “It’s Only Love” revealed a greater depth to his denim-and-leather image.

Truly a Legend

Here's a music critic challenge for everybody: Is this one of the- if not the- greatest albums of the 80s/now. If you said yes, you know music. If you said no, you're just flat-out an idiot. Thank you, Bryan Adams, for giving the world this unbelievably great music. Can't wait to hear the new album coming soon!
