Generally I don't like BA. Summer of 69 is good, and Everything I Do is great, can't be played enough for me. But other than that, it's puker alert, like Ram said. Too mushy, slick, pretending to be rock n roll with his sandpaper voice.
Sandpaper voice . . . mushy . . . Brains, that's a contradiction in terms, mate. Have you heard "When You Love Someone" from MTV Unplugged? Those lyrics are so true, and sung with a helluva lot of feeling. And his "Reckless" album from '84 . . . this guy can ROCK. Listen to that album. "One Night Love Affair" is amazing, "Summer Of '69", taken as read, "Heaven", very clever, one of the few "happy love songs" that really, really appeals to me. Honestly, take my word for it. Reckless is an amazing album.
