"Blaze Of Glory" Review 22 February 2001
Solo= Success

A review by Jen /

Did Jon Bon Jovi succeed in going solo?

The answer is yes!

With a mixture of real cowboy ballads to the brutal truth in soft rock, this is a real showing of talent.

With the title song, Blaze of Glory, gaining the most on-air attention, other songs can fade into the background.

The very uptempo Billy Get Your Guns goes hand in hand with the aucostic Blood Money and the jazz-like You Really Got Me Now. Bang A Drum seems an unusual song for a very non-religous person to write but is sung with such enthusiasm that you would not be able to tell.

To me, the most beautiful track on the album is Sante Fe. A song that blames the world for the evilness it posseses. I find it very diificult to pass this song without feeling a wave of compassion for what it would have taken to write this.

I am not forgetting Miracle, Justice In The Barrel, Never Say Die and Dying Ain't Much of a Living nor the snatches of conversation taken from the movie Young Guns 2 at the beginning of 3 of the songs.

This album certainly proves that with or without the band Jon is a success in himself!

Rating: 10/10
