Time to go solo for the 2nd time!
|"Destination Anywhere" Review
Destination Anywhere was Jon's second go at a solo act for a year or two. It's an album highly influenced
by softer rock than normal Bon Jovi, but after the musical surprise of These Days in -95 I pretty much
didn't know what to expect from this album. What I found was a delightful sound filled with both rhythms
of rock and a slower ballad sound with a completely new touch.
As always, song by song we go!
Queen Of New Orleans, 9/10:
A great rocker is what opens up this album. Classic rock with a new touch. Like this one!
Janie Don't You Take Your Love To Town, 8/10:
I like almost the entire song but really REALLY dislike the bad intro. I think that it ruins the general impression a lot. Otherwise, a good rock song.
Midnight In Chelsea, 2/10:
Dear god what's this?!? I don't like this one bit. The background "sha la la la" vocals make shivers behind my back, and not good shivers either... Good beat and so, but that's it.
Now this one I really like! Ballad mixed with rock, can't be nothing but success here!
Staring At Your Window With A Suitcase In My Hand, 10/10:
I love the suggestive and mystery beats and backgrounds in this song. The vocals are sung with tremendous effort by all our favourite Jon. Love this one..
Every Word Was A Piece Of My Heart, 10/10:
Another great song with excellent rhythms! Instant classic.. =)
It's Just Me, 10/10:
A slow and wonderful ballad. No matter if I'm sad, tired or whatever. This one is great no matter what mood I'm in..!
Destination Anywhere, 10/10:
A great rocker and also the title track. The video for this song was really cool and I like it a lot! Great song...
Learning How To Fall, 10/10:
Another just perfect song mixed with great rhythms and vocals!
Excellent guitars that really surprised me. Heard this one live too and it kicks major ass! Take my word for it...
Little City, 5/10:
The other dissapointment on the album. I just don't like it...
August 7, 4:15, 10/10:
A song about a young girl who was killed in a hit & run accident. This is a very sad, and true, story. An awesome rock song!
Cold Hard Heart, 10/10:
Wonderful ballad and an excellent way to finish of this album.. Really melancholic and emotional...
Overall I like this album a lot but only gets a rating of 8 because of the two bad songs "Midnight In Chelsea" and "Little City". Could have done without those two...
