Appalling from a has-been band
on 20 October 2013
Lets be honest, Bon Jovi peaked with These Days, a perfect album. After that, it was always going to even out and eventually dip.
No, this is an exercise in 'crash and burn'. It is atrocious. It lacks energy, decent songs and poor production. I get the distinct impression the band is going through the motions performing throw-away album filler tracks, and waiting to go out on tour to filled stadiums for yet (another) hits tour with the crowd singing along to Livin' on a Prayer!
This was the last album of theirs I brought. They are a parody of themselves now. Once a great band, but now, like KISS, happy to churn out dross using their name.......to line the pockets of the band.
