The album contains 9 original tracks and 4 acoustic version of some tracks. Here is a track by track review of this album.

  • You Belong To Me – is similar to Bruce Springsteen “Working On The Highway” which was included in BORN IN THE USA album.

  • Go Down Rocking – it’s like listening to Rod Stewart singing “Wild thing you make my heart sing.”
  • We Did It All – more like a country ballad than a rock ballad. The kind of song that you hear in many country albums.

  • That’s Rock and Roll – it would be a misnomer if this album lacks songs that really rocks. Another song in this record that will encourage concert fans to get up and rock and roll.

  • Don’t Even Try – a song that will remind music fans just how good Bryan Adams in crafting love ballads. This time, no wailing and screaming; just pure raw and unplugged music.

  • Thunderbolt – the track does not shock like a thunderbolt but rather amuse listeners as it sounds like an old obscure song called “Thai Na Na” and merged with his own version of rock and roll thing.
  • Yesterday Was Just A Dream – this is like a Roxette ballad or nineties glam rock track.
  • Brand New Day – another get up and rock song and this time it sounds like Radiohead meets REM.
