Default Crush

I waa listening to Crush today. It had been awhile. I love Its My Life and OWN. But I have realized that if you had not heard any Jovi stuff after These Days-you would not know it was the same band. They are masters at changing their looks and sounds. I like it but can see why many don't.. Some of the songs are quite lame-Capt. Crash and Mystery train. They just completely reinvented themselves with the way they to the sound. Thtas why this was such a hit record as it brought in tons of new and younger fans.

I love Crush.
Now before anyone asks, Crush ISN'T the album that got me into Bon Jovi. I atually got it almost a half a year after I got Slippery. That being said, I think it''s an awesome record. The only blah songs on that record are Mystery Train, and I Got The Girl (to an extent) IMHO. I'm sure I'll get blasted, and called all kinds of names and shit, but frankly I dont care.

Captain Crash is a cool song. Just Older was cool the first 40 times they played it live. I've always lked Next 100 Years.

She's a Mystery is probably the most boring song in the history of sound.

It's better than Lost Highway and TLFR... but that's it.

And as usual, I love the songs no one else likes:

Say It Isn't So
Captain Crash
Save The World
Mystery Train

I think those are all very good songs. The only song I could take or leave on Crush was I Got The Girl.

I like Say It Isn't So and Captain Crash. The other 2 I find boring and lame.

Oh, I adore those three.
I think Say It Isn't So is one of the best songs they've done in the last ten years. I love the way the opening riff comes in at the end of IML. Tremendoud track sequence IMO. The lyrics are really good to IMO.

Wah? You have no soul. It's the only song off the album that I still listen to.

I don't completely agree with these statements. You make it sound as though it was a process or group decision to look and sound different from how they looked and sounded in the 80's.

I think of it as more a natural progression. I know I'm not the same person that I was in the 80's. I wouldn't expect them to be, either. Would they still be where they are now if they looked and sounded like they did in the 80's? I really don't think they would be.
