"Reckless" is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter Bryan Adams. The album was co-produced by Adams and Bob Clearmountain, and it was one of Adams' most successful solo albums. Released on 5 November 1984 through A&M Records, the album was a huge international hit, selling over five million units in the United States alone. It was the first Canadian album to sell more than one million units within Canada. The album reached number one on the Billboard 200 and reached high positions on record charts worldwide.
Since its release in 1984, 'Reckless' has sold over 12 million copies worldwide. It has spawned huge hits such as 'Run to You', 'Kids Wanna Rock', 'Somebody', 'Summer of '69', 'One Night Love Affair' and 'It's Only Love' a duet with the incomparable Tina Turner. 'Reckless' also gave Bryan his first U.S. #1 on Billboard with 'Heaven' as well as a Diamond Award for over a million sold in his home country of Canada. The album was the turning point in Adams' career, leading him to tour all over the world and garner legions of fans with his legendary live shows.
Bryan Adams capitalized on the momentum of Cuts Like a Knife with 1984's Reckless, a virtually flawless collection of melodic hard rock which would dominate radio for years to come. "Run to You" was a brilliant lead-off single which remains one of Adams' best songs ever, but its success still pales in comparison to follow-up smashes such as "Summer of '69," "It's only Love," (a duet with Tina Turner), and the ballad to end all ballads, "Heaven." Although some songs haven't aged very well (especially the overtly cheesy "Kids Wanna Rock"), these weak links are easily eclipsed by further highlights such as the cool rock of "One Night Love Affair" and the irrepressible pop chorus of "Somebody." Sales figures may point to 1991's Waking Up the Neighbors as the peak of Bryan Adams career, but the songs from Reckless will most certainly prove to be his lasting legacy.
