Moving On is Oleta Adams' most straightforward and mainstream release to date. Considering that she is working with Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey's producers (Rich & Friedman and Vassal Benford, respectively), the shift in sound shouldn't come as much of a surprise.

Unfortunately, that can't compensate for inconsistent material, but Moving On remains a fine contemporary soul record.
TRACKS OF MY YEARS is the twelfth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams. The Covers album was released on September 30, 2014 by Polydor Records. It is an eclectic mix of songs reflective of the time when rock was played alongside pop, country and R&B, and follows Adams’ acoustic album, 2010's Bare Bones, a release that resulted in sold out shows across Europe, North America, Australia and South Africa.
