Out of Order is the 15th album by Rod Stewart, released in 1988. It features the hit singles "Lost In You", "Forever Young", "My Heart Can't Tell You No" and "Crazy About Her".

Critical reception

The album was considered by many critics a return to form after a series of less successful albums. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic called it "well-constructed" and, Rolling Stone magazine called it a "confident, well-written, high-voltage work".

Chart success

The album reached #20 on the Billboard 200, eventually going 2× Platinum, which made it Stewart's best-selling album of the 1980s.

Each single released from the album went to the Top 20 of either the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, or the Billboard Hot 100. The most successful single was "My Heart Can't Tell You No", which reached the Top 5 of both the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks and Billboard Hot 100.[2] The album had four charting hits in the U.S., and the two biggest were "My Heart Can't Tell You No" at #2 and "Crazy About Her" at #2.

In January 1989, NBC Sports used "Forever Young" for its closing montage (covering the past six months of sports highlights on NBC like the 1988 Summer Olympics, 1988 World Series, 1989 Fiesta Bowl, and Super Bowl XXIII) following their Super Bowl XXIII coverage.

"Forever Young" is basically a re-write of a Bob Dylan song of the same title. Not only do the two songs share a similar melody, but they contain many of the same lyrics. After acknowledging that he had unconsciously plagiarized the older song, Stewart agreed to share his royalties with Dylan. The album has sold more than 9 million copies, worldwide.

In Brazil, the album was certified Gold in 1994.[3]
