A step back
I really liked "These days" especially the sensitive, personal touch of "It's hard (letting you go)" which will always be one of my favorite songs. "Always" also just sort of spoke to me in a similar way and that just fascinated me about BJ over the years. "Crush" on the other hand lacks that closeness. Looking back "Keep the faith" seems to be a step forward from Slippery and New Jersey and These days another one forward. I really couldn't wait to hear "Crush" for I expected it to go beyond "These days" which would be a bliss. But instead the guys decided to ... I don't know, it seems like a step back on the path of taking the masks off. Still I really like "Just older".
