18 til I Die is the seventh studio album by the Canadian rock artist Bryan Adams. Released on June 4, 1996 through A&M Records, the album became a commercial success peaking at #1 in United Kingdom and number two in his homeland Canada. It was recorded on different locations which included Jamaica and France. The album was panned by critics, saying he was trying to be youthful while sounding more like "having a mid-life crisis". While previous albums by Adams had all been quite consistent in terms of production and songwriting qualities, 18 til I Die was somewhat of a patchwork, making up of ballads (i.e., "I'll Always Be Right There", "I Think About You"), blues-orientated rock tunes (i.e., "Black Pearl", "Do to You"), and soundtrack songs ("Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman?", "Star"). The album was poorly received by fans in the US and peaked at only #31 there, becoming his last platinum album. Adams launched a world tour, the "18 til I Die" tour in May 1996 in Tallinn, Estonia. This is the first Adams album not to include a Jim Vallance song, who has occasionally been vocal on the record's lyrical content (specifically concerning the song "(I Wanna Be) Your Underwear").
