I totally agree mate, really like his stuff but this is a real shocker. I was about to pre-order this on amazon too!

just dont know what to make of it ... some decent songs (4 or so) but its way too poppy ... it sounds like a P!ink album with male voice.I like her but imho they were in different leagues now they are both fighting relegation. The use of drum machines is disgraceful. The song "Battleships" is a travesty its like something that would come out of the stench that is 1d.

the song "Long live rock & roll" is clearly a pi$$ take; he talks about big guitars etc and there is nothing on this album or song.

when i saw the list of producers it made me cringe; it reeks of pure record industry pressure or cash-in ... how the hell is this stuff gonna come across live with his earlier stuff.

I remember an old kerrang review on Bryan Adams back in the day - "Warning, artist in decline"

Pretty much sums up this effort for me.
