"NEW "BIG LOUD" BON JOVI IN 2009:

Jon Bon Jovi has posted a band update online - it seems Bon Jovi will be back in the studio soon. The update reads (in part): "President Elect Obama better be a Superman or at least surround himself with all the king's horses and all the king's men. The country is in bad shape. We wanted change and we will all be called upon to help implement it. I for one am ready. On the home front since the tour ended the Soul won the Arena Bowl in New Orleans. It was sweet. We're waiting on the rings. They too are sweet. I spent August getting fat and lazy, not wanting to even think about work. It lasted until September when that knock came to my door and to my head. It said "write you fool, Richie is bored and you are not the stay at home kind of dad as all of the neighbors are". So, I went off to Los Angeles and we started. As of now we're 12 songs into it. I'm very pleased. In case you're wondering, it's a rock record. A big loud one. John Shanks is set to produce again and we'll begin the demo process right after I ship the reindeer and sleigh back to the attic, I mean North Pole. In all honesty, I just wanted to drop you a note to wish you and yours a happy healthy holiday. I hope you really do find what you're looking for underneath the tree. It doesn't have to cost a thing. It's free. It is a smile. Thanks for bringing me one. See you in 09. JBJ.""

hmm....

 

well, heres the resident bon jovi freaks opinion:

 

ateast theyre conciously going for rock, which they never intended to do on LH, its atleast gotta be as good as HAND, but im thinkin we should expect a Bounce type record

 

then again, their last tour was a greatest hits tour, maybe theyre in gear to go back to the classic sound but with a modern edge.....i think theyre hyped after the classic tour they just did and theyre actually gonna put some feeling into this

 

or, it could be another Crush....

If it ROCKS and is more in line with their releases up to Keep the Faith then I might pick this up.

The words in your sentence in that particular order make absolutely no sense to me Wes. I kind of get a feeling you think Bon Jovi may be able to rock like they used to but come on, we all know that's not going to ever ever ever happen again. :lol:

EVERY band that's going to release a CD will ALWAYS say that it's gonna rock... Sadly, Bon Jovi lost their balls somewhere around 1995 and possibly even before that...

You can go back over the last 10-12 years and every tour has been a greatest hits tour as they have continually played Bad Name, Prayer, Sleep When Im Dead, Wanted, Bad Medicine, KTF, Bed of Roses...ect

 

I thought the recent tour was the most different tour they have done cos they mixed up the set list far more and included some of the less commerically successful stuff like Die For You, Wild Is The Wind, Runaway, Say Goodbye, I'll Be There 4 U....

Well I'll admit I'm excited. Even after a couple of disappointing discs, I will never write off a Bon Jovi album until I've heard every song on it. I, for one, loved 'Have a Nice Day' and that alone showed me they still have what it takes to produce the goods. Granted there were a lot of fillers and it's no 'Keep the faith', but I'm looking forward to hear what they do next.

 

And for the record, I think 'Lost Highway' destroys 'Sparkle Face of Turds'.

We will never hear another Slippery when wet or New Jersey, just as we will never hear another Appetite for destruction, Hysteria, Cherry pie, Strength, Wake me when its over, Leather boyz with electric toyz etc etc etc etc

 

Most of the bands have moved on from that era, and can/will never repeat the sound of those albums.

 

Bon Jovi have continued to rack up huge sales, so their is even less reason for them to take the risk on a return to the earlier sound, potentially upsetting modern fans.

 

I'd never expect a totally "holy shit" take me back to the good old days album, from Jovi, I do hope it at least takes its cues from the harder rocking songs from the last few albums.

There are songs on Crush, Bounce, Have a nice day and These days, that if put together as a single album, would have made for a damn fine rock record.

That is so very true.

 

I can't wait <_< I stalled the car at a crossing the other day trying to change the radio station when he came on the radio.

 

:rofl2:

 

I will reserve judgement as always until I hear it.

 

Me too.

Never write a Bon Jovi record off until you hear it, backed right there. Now I haven't been big on anything by them ever since Keep The Faith and they're a long way from the power Rock glory of the past but they're still Bon Jovi at heart. I for one do believe that with the current industry changes regarding a new generation interest in melodic Rock Bon Jovi might in fact dig up their old guns and shoot them for old times sake.

I just wanna say, and I'm not limiting this to Bon Jovi, why do we always wanna hear them return to their old sound? If we wanna hear that we can listen to their old records. But their new records will be new material and a new sound. I get caught up in that mentality, too, but I have to realize that the sound I've grown to love will always be there, on compact disc. So when new albums are dropped, why can't we just accept them for what they are, knowing we can always return to the glory days with a simple touch of a button?

While I don't agree with this exactly, I would say I largely share this opinion as well. About the only objection I have to that comment is when bands go in a "shitty" direction.

 

(I mean, we can always squabble over the new direction and whether or not it's shitty, but when albums are completely devoid of any listening pleasure for me, that's where I draw the line.)

 

I agree that, could we all be a little more "open-minded" about the new releases from artists whose previous releases are seminal to our core listening pleasure, a different direction shouldn't automatically be dissed. (I remember totally trashing releases such as Native Tongue, These Days, and Slang when they came out, only to find them very good-tremendous albums upon revisiting them later.)

 

But, while I can't agree with trashing something because it's "new", when an artist releases an album with no redeeming quality from me, you can be I'll trash it. (And sometimes, erroneously or not, just because it's a different direction.)

    • The band press release says they've changed their name to Rain City. The article says they've changed their name to Rain City. But it's actually Rain City Drive. Really seems like everyone was on board. ;}
    • That HammerFall-ish gang vocal chant thing in the chorus seems a bit out of place to me. Otherwise, sounds decent enough.
    • Hmmm...It's okay.  I dig Erik's vocals and overall the music sounds good.  It definitely rocks.   Not sure I care much for whatever is going on with the chorus though with the group chorus thing or whatever.   I think something different there might've made me dig it more. Erik sounds great though and this could grow on me some.  That said, still much prefer what he was doing in H.E.A.T to this.
    • You have to use a VPN to watch in the USA. I did anyway.
    • Perhaps that's cause you think about what we think wrong, an accident has nothing to do with anything, an accident requires there to be a preset intention behind it, no Atheists I know believe it's an accident, you know the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though (this might fly over your head even as simple as it is) I believe we are a mathematical equation, everything just happened to line up right and all the elements it took to kick start life, they all happened, look around, look at the universe, everything is dead, life only exists, here, that we know of, and I don't do hypothetical, I also believe life may not be as important as we believe it is, I mean of course we think it's the greatest thing around, cause without it then we don't exist, but you ever thought maybe in the big scheme of things, it's not that relevant, Ive also wondered if it's maybe antiquated in aspect of the universe, maybe life was something primitive, and we are the last, maybe we are the first, what I do know is as young as 5 yrs old i was dragged to the Mormon church, and I never ever ever believed in any of it, not once, I thought adults were fucking psychos, everything about it sounded suspect from day 1 to a 5 yr old boy, and Ive never seen or met anyone who was dead, lots of people have and they have places for those poor people, I believe it was made up by a bunch of guys, either to fill the vacuum not knowing about shit, or it was made to control the morons, watch Book of Eli, I still celebrate Xmas, it's a holiday, it's the winter solstice, it's a time to be with your family if you have any, if not then it's a time to hang out with friends, it's the biggest consumer spending day, you don't gotta believe in spaghetti monsters in the sky to have a great time at Xmas, just let yourself enjoy it for what it is and not hook some fairy tale to it. 
    • Some more from Hawking's last book before his death: "I think the universe was spontaneously created out of nothing, according to the laws of science," Hawking, who died in March, wrote. "If you accept, as I do, that the laws of nature are fixed, then it doesn't take long to ask: What role is there for God?"   In life, Hawking was a vocal champion of the Big Bang theory — the idea that the universe began by exploding suddenly out of an ultradense singularity smaller than an atom. From this speck emerged all the matter, energy and empty space that the universe would ever contain, and all that raw material evolved into the cosmos we perceive today by following a strict set of scientific laws. To Hawking and many like-minded scientists, the combined laws of gravity, relativity, quantum physics and a few other rules could explain everything that ever happened or ever will happen in our known universe.     "If you like, you can say the laws are the work of God, but that is more a definition of God than a proof of his existence," Hawking wrote.   With the universe running on a scientifically guided autopilot, the only role for an all-powerful deity might be setting the initial conditions of the universe so that those laws could take shape — a divine creator who caused the Big Bang to bang, then stepped back to behold His work.   "Did God create the quantum laws that allowed the Big Bang to occur?" Hawking wrote. "I have no desire to offend anyone of faith, but I think science has a more compelling explanation than a divine creator."   Hawking's explanation begins with quantum mechanics, which explains how subatomic particles behave. In quantum studies, it's common to see subatomic particles like protons and electrons seemingly appear out of nowhere, stick around for a while and then disappear again to a completely different location. Because the universe was once the size of a subatomic particle itself, it's plausible that it behaved similarly during the Big Bang, Hawking wrote.   "The universe itself, in all its mind-boggling vastness and complexity, could simply have popped into existence without violating the known laws of nature," he wrote.   That still doesn't explain away the possibility that God created that proton-size singularity, then flipped the quantum- mechanical switch that allowed it to pop. But Hawking says science has an explanation here, too. To illustrate, he points to the physics of black holes — collapsed stars that are so dense, nothing, including light, can escape their pull.   Black holes, like the universe before the Big Bang, condense into a singularity. In this ultra-packed point of mass, gravity is so strong that it distorts time as well as light and space. Simply put, in the depths of a black hole, time does not exist.   Because the universe also began as a singularity, time itself could not have existed before the Big Bang. Hawking's answer, then, to what happened before the Big Bang is, "there was no time before the Big Bang."   "We have finally found something that doesn’t have a cause, because there was no time for a cause to exist in," Hawking wrote. "For me this means that there is no possibility of a creator, because there is no time for a creator to have existed in."   This argument will do little to persuade theistic believers, but that was never Hawking's intent. As a scientist with a near-religious devotion to understanding the cosmos, Hawking sought to "know the mind of God" by learning everything he could about the self-sufficient universe around us. While his view of the universe might render a divine creator and the laws of nature incompatible, it still leaves ample space for faith, hope, wonder and, especially, gratitude.   "We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe," Hawking concludes the first chapter of his final book, "and for that I am extremely grateful."   Originally published on Live Science.
