Bryan Adams: So Far So Good

Posted on

This anthology of the overfamiliar video oeuvre of the world’s most generic rock star is probably a good deal as greatest-hits packages go. There’s about a third as much music on Bryan Adams: So Far So Good as on the companion CD, and if you enjoy Adams’ brand of Mellencamp Lite, you’ll doubtless find this tape rewarding. If you’re a nonfan like me, however, watching this seemingly interminable collection will more likely inspire dumb jokes at its auteur’s expense. For instance: When composing ”Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”’ ”(Everything I Do) I Do It for You,” how come Adams didn’t have the nerve to call it ”Summer of 1169”?
