Bryan Adams’ “Reckless” is majestic.
Released in 1984 on A&M Records, “Reckless” features 10 songs, hit after hit after hit (Run to You, Heaven, Somebody Summer of ’69)â€“ and a hit duet with Tina Turner (It’s Only Love). Produced by Bob Clearmountain with Bryan Adams, the songs and their mix stands up well despite the era’s knack for sheen and synth abuse- which there is a lack of here. It’s the 80s and there’s no denying it on “Reckless”, but great songs always outlive production quality, era fads and ironic, indie snobbery.
Massachusetts, Paul Westerberg, Freedom! Congratulations, you’ve graduated. From something you probably haven’t had enough time to figure out yet. It’s that time of the year when some of you here can’t wait to move on. Some of you are moving on from middle school to high school; others are moving on from high school to college and beyond seeking greater knowledge.
