"...the album that helped shape the "Adams Sound"Bryan Adams Cuts

Cuts Like a Knife is the 1983 album that put Bryan Adams in the path of success. He had experimented with some different styles on his first album but this album settles on two styles: hard rock and ballad. The album featured the hit singles "Straight from the Heart", "This Time" and "Cuts Like a Knife" which reached number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the mainstream rock chart. "Cuts Like a Knife" became one of Adams' most recognizable and popular songs from the 80s.

The album was co-produced by Adams and Bob Clearmountain and peaked at number eight on the Billboard 200 -  a true commercial success that sold over 4 million copies worldwide. The album was named the #48 Greatest Canadian Album of All Time. "Cuts Like a Knife" and "Straight from the Heart" were nominated for a Juno Award for Single of the Year and "Cuts Like a Knife" would win the Composer of the Year award. "Straight From The Heart" is one of the songs people think of when Bryan Adams is mentioned - a piano based ballad sung in Bryan's high, raspy voice.

A great pop rock album to listen to - the songs are highly melodic and well crafted and full of a lot of simple and genuine heart.
