I'm A Cowboy...
on 30 November 2005
Bon Jovi's fascination with the Western continues with this soundtrack to the largely unmemorable film Young Guns II. However, this soundtrack is anything but unmemorable, with plenty of great tunes and wonderful lyrics.
Named after the classic song Blaze of Glory, that is indeed a stand out track, but don't expect the rest of the album to not live up to the legendary status of that song.
The album ranges from quieter laid back songs like Miracle, catchy anthem like songs like Bang A Drum, to full on rock songs like Never Say Die. You even get a short instrumental song, Guano City, that was used in the film.
Bon Jovi's husky tones suit this kind of cowboy album perfectly, and coupled with lyrics that really do make you feel like you are listening to a musical take on a Western movie. Memorable and easily relistenable many times, Blaze of Glory makes you want to jump on your horse and ride off into the sunset...
