The cool thing about music is it can bring you back to when you first heard it. I bought this album when it first came out the summer before I started high school. I had just bought my very first car. Everything was so new and exciting back then. I could fill my tank with 93 octane for less than $16 dollars. Man, I miss those days. I was watching a tv show yesterday and heard "Star" in the background. Instantly sparked memories of that summer in 96. Hard to believe that was 14 years ago.....sheesh! It's a good album. Sounds a little cheesy now, but it was good for its time.
Pretty awesome album! :)
Often a punchline - this album's usual "professional" reviews are nothing different for Bryan Adams overall career.in most peoples eyes which is what makes him such a hidden musical treasure for so many. Obviously he has peaks throughout his career when it comes to popularity but unphased album to album his effort and performance is always right on. This record was meant to be more laid back and fun and "The Only thing that looks good on me is you", "18 Til I Die" and "I wanna be your underwear" proves that. "I'll Always Be Right There" is absolutely one his best ballads ever. Two songs on here were covered by country artists Lorrie Morgan and Bryan White ("the only thing" and "you're still beautiful to me"). Bryan may be aging with time like the rest of us but his music and spirit are truly always 18 in our hearts/spirits....and there is nothing wrong with that.
one of my favorites
I used to listen to this music when I was little. I just found the album and I loved every track, one of the best kept secrets in music. Exept for Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman? wich was a requried song in American idol season 6 hollywood round.

INCONSISTENT CD STILL OUTSHINES THEM ALL
By S E T H
EVEN WITH GREAT PRODUCTION. UNEVEN WRITING AND A BAD FASION SENSE PUTS THIS CD OUT OF THE TOP 40 BUT THATS FINE WITH ME.
STANDOUT SONGS DEFINITELY "Have you ever", You're Still Beautiful", "I Think About You", "18 Til"
