Default Destination Anywhere..

I have been listening to Destination Anywhere lately for the first time in nearly a decade. When I bought it I thought it was OK and havenít really listened since. Iím not really a fan of solo albums.
When I first heard it I didnít like the sound of the drums as they sounded more like electric drums and I thought there was far too many slow songs on the album.
Forward nearly 10 years and I still feel the same but the songs I liked back then I still do like a lot.

I was also wondering if any songs that didnít get onto DA made the Crush album?

I think Queen of new Orleans, Janie take your love, Destination Anywhere, Itís Just me & August 7 could have all gone onto Crush to make it a far better album.

What the general thoughts of Destination Anywhere on these boards?

On first listen, I thought, "Huh?" but on second listen, I loved it. I think there's an integrity to Destination Anywhere that sometimes gets sacrificed with the machine of the hit-making goal of the band. Jon took risks and showed himself as a true artist. And, personally, I find the album refreshing even to this day. There are several songs that I think should have been hits even if they weren't written to be.

Always loved DA and it's still one of my favourite albums. I love Jon's voice, the arrangement, the lyrics .... everything

i think if you took half of crush and half of DA - you would have a mighty fine album!

I like it really. A lot better than Crush, Bounce, Have A Nice Day, or Lost Highway... My favorite songs are "Every Word" and "Destination Anywhere". Just class...

Hmmm, to me Crush and DA sound too different to mix them... and I'm quite happy with both of them, so no need for that in my opinon.

I haven't been listening to DA a lot in the last time, but I was very keen on it when it came out. I prefer band albums, I naturally tend to irgnore solo albums a bit. But it certainly has class: "Queen Of New Orleans" is one of my favourite tracks in the whole (J)BJ ouevre. Other favourites are "Midnight In Chelsea", "Every Word" and "Little City". Every song is quite good. I like the overall atmosphere, and you can hear that this album was written more to make an atristical statement than to push it into the charts.

I agree with that.

For that reason I think mixing up Crush/Bounce would've made 1 really decent album...

My favorite song on DA is Janie Dont Take your Love To Town.... Love his high voice...
Anyway, I think (correct me if I'm wrong) just older was written for DA and was performed during the DA tour, before crush was even made.
