4/4. Kate Thornton concludes a series celebrating four critically unloved albums that have struck a major chord with the public and sold more than ten million copies globally. The final disc is Bryan Adams 's 1991 hit Waking up the Neighbours, whose release capitalised on the phenomenal summer-to-autumn success of the full-blown ballad (Everything I Do) I Do It for You (from the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves). Produced by "Mutt" Lange, the straight-rock album yielded four other hit singles including Can't Stop This Thing We Started and Thought I'd Died and Gone to Heaven.
