    Though Bryan Adams racked up some of his biggest hits with a string of mammoth, soundtrack-related power ballads, it was his earlier heartland-rock hits that first endeared him to music fans. ROOM SERVICE (2005) goes a long way towards restoring the Canadian singer's reputation as a no-frills rocker, with a selection of expertly crafted and energetically performed compositions that rank among his best work. This is generally a straight-ahead guitar/bass/drums affair from top to bottom. "Right Back Where I Started From" is a tough, Stonesy, twang-fueled stomper reminiscent of Adams's CUTS LIKE A KNIFE era. "I Was Only Dreaming" breaks the mold a little by adding a rhythmic string accompaniment and some Hendrix-like psychedelic guitar, but retains the classic Adams sound. The most intriguing songs, however, are the last two, "Nowhere Fast," and "Why Do You Have to Be So Hard to Love;" both combine a moody roots-rock feel with a wistful lyricism, leaving listeners with a palpable sense of Adams's admirable return to form.
