Great boxset! - For completists and die hard fans only,
This review is from: 100 Million Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong [4CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
I regard myself as a loyal Bon Jovi fan, and after purchasing all of their studio albums to date, as well as compilations and live recordings, I decided to then buy '100 Million Bon Jovi Fans Can't Be Wrong', a 4 CD and DVD set, the CDs consisting of previously unreleased recordings, rarities, demos of already familiar songs and B sides, and the DVD containing behind the scenes film, other rare footage and an interview with Jon Bon Jovi talking about some of the songs on here. The set is complimented with a chunky booklet, containing letters to the fans from all the band members, letters actually written by the fans, and rare photographs and memorabilia from over the years.
There are some excellent songs here, recorded during all of the various stages of the band's career, that could easily have been album tracks and deserve to be better known.
With 50 songs spread across the discs, there is much to discover in this boxset. However, given the fact that this set is still quite pricey, and the fact that it includes no hit recordings, I have to say that this will probably only appeal to die hard fans and completists. If you are one those people, you'll really enjoy this and find it a treasure trove of quality music. If you are a casual fan looking for a boxset -try Cross Road (Sound & Vision), containing a CD of Bon Jovi hits, a CD consisting of B sides and rare tracks, and the 'Live In London' DVD, it's much cheaper and will be more appealing to that market.
