Review: Bryan Adams – Star (Rock)

This review covers the soft rock track Bryan Adams – Star.

This track was released in 1996 on the album 18 Til I Die.

The track starts off with some effects and guitars. The vocals then come in for a verse. Piano also joins the track as the vocals become more prominent.

The vocals then lead the track into the main chorus. Right after, the vocals take the track into the next verse. The vocals then lead the track into the next round in the main chorus. An instrumental section featuring piano and a guitar follows.

After that, the vocals lead the track into the next round in the main chorus. The track then gradually fades out after.

It would appear that this track is trying to go for a more softer and deeper emotion. It at least gets part way there. The overall concept is a bit cliche, but the details prevent this track from being a cliche in every single way. So, I think it’s moderately successful.

Meanwhile, the backing elements are decent enough. They do round out the track in a reasonable manner and give the track some variety. In the end, they are OK, but nothing huge.

Overall, this ends up being an OK track. I wouldn’t call it a breakthrough amazing track by any means. This is in thanks partly to the overarching concept being a bit on the cliche side. The nitty gritty details of the lyrics do give this track some life, but only enough to push it up to the level of mediocrity. The backing piano and guitar is decent enough. They round out the track in a decent manner, but they don’t necessarily make or an amazing audio journey. So, an OK track, but nothing big.
