Some of the people on this site ought to open their minds AND their ears to this new album.
I admit some of the new versions don't work, such as Bad Medicine and Bed of Roses which i don't like at all. But I think the new Wanted works really well along with It's My Life, Livin on a Prayer and several others. This album shows there is so much more to this Band than lung-bursting choruses and guitar solos.
To say they've wasted 23 days of their lives on it is a disgrace. What did you do with 23 days of your life in August/September, when they were working their butts of for our benefit? Probably absoloutley nothing if your anything like me!
OK, so you don't like the new versions, that's your perogative, but at least show them a bit of repsect for trying something different!
Look, they took the easy way out this time. I am not saying they do this all of the time, thank goodness, but this time they rushed to get something out and the results are poor in my opinion. The fact that they had only 23 days to do this shows.

As for them working their butts off for my benefit, they are the ones that cash in and reap the rewards, so I would have to say that it is to the benefit of the band to make a good album. This way they can continue to make a ton money and do a job that they love. I don't think that is a bad deal.

I have been a fan since Runaway, and sometimes I love what they do, sometimes I hate it. Such is life.

"They took the easy way out'! Are you having a laugh? If they were taking the easy way out, they could eaither have released these 12 songs in their original format and called it Crossroads Part 2. Or have done a straight down the middle acoustic album, which they could probably have done in their sleep.
As for making a ton of money, that's not going to happen, because they aren't promoting it to sell loads of copies.

Let me explain, their first intention was to release an acoustic CD. That didn't work out and they didn't want to release another Crossroads because they had been there, done that. So, they had to release something, and this was the easiest option.

You misunderstood my ton of money comment. I meant it towards your comment about them working their butts off for my benefit, when in fact it is for their own benefit too.

I know they won't make a ton of money off of this album as it was just something to do to fulfill a contract. I think the band knew this too, hence the fact they removed the two new songs. Why waste them on this album when they seem to be pretty good?

I hope Busted die a slow and painful death.

They think they got the right to slag of Bon Jovi? For a band who get turned on by that stupid synchronised jump at the start of each chorus thye got too much to say for themsleves. They only know about 2 and a half chords between them anyway.

One more thing....YOU DON'T STRUM ON A BASS GUITAR! MORON!

I didnt like any of the popstars that made the comment, but I agree with them. The clips werent even new clips, it was old clips of BJ singing the old versions of the songs which I thought stunk.

So you become a musician when you're not in a boyband ? Then what about Robbie Williams, Ronan Keating and Justin Timberlake ?

can i just say that when those three idiots on CD UK are One of the biggest and most respected bands in the world and also the small fact of One Hundred Million Albums then they have room to slag off the biggest band in the world but until then they can shut the **** up and keep singing shit songs about crashing ****in weddings and liking their teachers what a bunch of losers
