BRYAN ADAMS - Get it up - English

To sum it all, 'Get it up' is a sort of a remembrance on 80-ties rockabilly and rock'n'roll.

For the last decade or two it was quite difficult to guess what would new Bryan Adams albums sound like. In his early days the Canadian superstar was working class hero rocker, mainly leaning towards heavier rock sound. He was releasing great albums of pure and legitimate hard rock. When you listen to "Cuts like a knife", "Bryan Adams" and "Reckless" albums you'd know he wasn't compromising. 

Super-stardom he experienced throughout 80.-ties and 90-ties turned him writing more mainstream, softer tunes, eligible to wider audiences. Whatever you may think of him, one is certain, the guy knew how to write a song and nailed it, even it the style was not your cup of tea. Adams is, after all, the author of few of the best/ or most successful anthems in music history. 
His switch in music style into a broadcasting pop arena was enormously successful, even if his rock oriented fans felt like he betrayed them.

What has happened to Bryan Adams in the recent decade that every release he had have was either greatest hits volume x or y of this and that variation and few pale studio albums? Well, the guy has obviously decided to enjoy a life a little. And pursued his career as very talented and crafted photographer - so there you have it. 

When he announced the new studio album "Get it up", I was quite cautious in expectations, being his fan or not, I haven't expected that he will knock me on my knees with the result or repeat the massive rockin' feelgood of his first albums.

But the result is, curiously enough, a decent rock'n'roll album, better to say rockabilly album. You know, the kind that makes you feel good at parties or when you cleaning up the house or fixing some food in the kitchen. If it sounds odd and silly, it actually isn't. Because it isn't a bad thing at all.
 
Though, Adams has reportedly claimed that the new album would be a kind of his early glory days-albums revive, but such claims are way away of anything alike. The album is just different, definitely below his rock anthems and also less of Adams trademark than probably anything that he has done in his life. 

The reason for this is, when you play the record to anyone older that 40 everyone will instantly say it is marked with "Electric Light Orchestra" sign all over it. And rightfully so, Jeff Lynne, ELO's main player is a producer on this record. If you are not familiar with ELO opus, maybe few other artists will ring a bell: The Travelling Wilburys, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and maybe, a bit of Roy Orbison flavor.
 
Is that such a bad stuff? No, of course not. We may think that Adams is long way from "home" on "Get it up" but it is not so. Adams has always showed a small sign of leaning on classic Midwestern r'n'r. It is just not the album we - I for sure - would like to hear from Adams nowadays. 

So, is "Get it up" any good? The album is short, only 25 minutes of 9 new studio songs and it is what it is: a cheerful, dancing, party-mood collection of songs. No more, no less. 

The only rock song "Thunderbolt" is a pale attempt to be a proper rock song, but I kinda like it. It is actually not so bad, only maybe a bit old-fashioned. But, such is the entire album - of a retro style. 

The single "Brand New Day" will never reach anywhere near his even weakest top-charted songs and the slow one, ballad "Don't even try" is... I don't know what it is but it's galaxies away from his legendary super ballads, but still - it works. 

The best song, TM Adams song, is probably "Go Down Rocking" although the entire album has no song to stand out. Which is a shame, but also meaning it may be an odd blend, but well rounded and solid rock'n'roll with no higher aspirations.

And yes, I always liked ELO - there, you have it. To sum it all, "Get it up" is a sort of a remembrance on 80-ties r'n'r.

But one thing I might add as a post-scriptum: last year Adams released a photo book, “Wounded — The Legacy of War” featuring his portraits of injured soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan. Why these themes only in photographs? I sense he need a muse of music to wakes him up.
