Destination Anywhere is really underrated, and I wish he had done more solo albums along this line. I hated Midnight In Chelsea when it came out, but it's a song that grew on me over the years. It's Just Me, Destination Anywhere, Queen Of New Orleans, Staring At Your Windows, all great songs...

Also, I think Jon wanted something that was drastically different to Bon Jovi as the first single to reinforce that it was something different....

I really like the album.

Like it better than most of the Bon Jovi albums!

I've really come to appreciate this album over the last couple years. So many great tracks.

It’s a good album but I prefer Blaze by a mile.

I do like It’s just me, destination anywhere, august 7th and the bonus tracks.

Have always disliked midnight in Chelsea, Janie, ugly and a few others.

I’m not a fan of “shala la las in songs!

I agree about the "shalala" parts. However, it's very mood-depending in terms of which album I like to listen to. Destination Anywhere is a record that I prefer a lot in the autumn/winter months or on long car drives in the night.
At the same time Blaze, while being somewhere in the vein of New Jersey, is an album where I have to be in a pretty specific mood to listen to the whole thing as well. Besides Dyin' Ain't Much of A Living. That song is pure genius to me!

Blaze is something of a masterpiece from beginning to end, while DA is great, it doesnt compare...

When I found Blaze, in 1994 for me, I always thought it was a little too much for my little brain >_< jajaj, but I thought exactly the same Johnny said about the kid: “that kind of guy I wanna hang out with”

masterpiece!

-_-

A fantastic record. I could do without the title track and Ugly but everything else is just great. For me the last great record JBJ wrote.

Default Dvd

So we all agree that we love the music of DA. But what about the DVD?

I haven't watched it in years, but I remember it being a fine example of a singer trying to be an actor. Especially in the scene where he is arguing with Demi in the kitchen. Much like a great singer would overpower an inferior one in a duet, Demi just blew him away in this scene.

I'm glad he stuck to singing.
