Bon Jovi - "2020" (2020)


Recommended Posts

Jesus Christ. I could have written that Reckoning song. Pure sh*t. 

 

First one was better, but still below average.

I feel like I should be ashamed to express my honest thoughts on that. But it needs to be said anyway. Fucking, terrible. Horrible.  I do, however, like that little guitar riff that appears two o

Jon really should change the band's name to Bongiovi.  Bon Jovi simply is no more.

Just pack it in.

I'm not even a fan of Jon's vocals on these.

Jon sounds like Bob Dylan. What a pile of shit.

Of all the 80’s big hair acts none have shamefully turned their back on their original sound like Bon Jovi.

It is a shame, but I think it boils down to the fact that he doesn't need the fame or fortune. He already has that. At his point in life, he's just recording what he wants to record. I can dig it. He's given us so much already, I think he deserves it. I would dearly love an old style Bon Jovi album and I think it would be far more commercially successful than what's been released recently, but he doesn't need that. He's doing his thing, so good on him. I'm not gonna bag him for it.

Don't think we'll ever get old style BJ back, and like you I'm cool with that.
He obviously has an audience still, it just isn't us any more.
Crush was my time to ease out of Bon Jovi.
A few nice songs sice then, but overall I became pretty disinterested.
But there are otehr bands, if theya ren't for me any more, no problems, just move on...

Won't complain much cause Bon Jovi actually has become a new band since 'Crush', well HAND has some good old hooks but basically we have to accept it's a modern BON JOVI and I myself don't really dig it except few songs here and there

Last time I saw him live couple years ago is also quite painful to see he's singing off key quite a few times. Gone is the mighty soaring voice of the 80s, it's all distant memories now.

This new album will be forgotten soon by us here :(

Sad thing

I quite like it. It's not a Bon Jovi album of old but we're not young either. Struggling to really put this in the melodic rock category though. 

Also like the production. Got a certain atmosphere to it. 

But I liked Destination Anywhere and that put me in the minority.

Nothing wrong with liking something that is being slammed.
if you like it you like it.
I haven't been bothered with this, but did listen to The Circle a while ago and really dug it.
Not sure if that is an album that everyone hates as well.
I've found it hard to really get into anything since a few songs of Bounce and Have A Nice Day.

With every passing minute, his voice sounds more and more like Bob Dylan... and that's NOT a good thing.

Even after he's been dead for a year, he'll still be better looking than Dylan.

A BLM song and a Coronavirus song on the one album? Could things possibly be any worse? This album is absolutely woeful. 

We say this all the time with various projects, but why is this still called Bon Jovi? Jon has recorded solo albums before so why is this just not one of those? Looking at most the comments in this thread, most people here (and we're meant to be a learned crew) are saying about this album "he," "his" etc. No one sees this as the band Bon Jovi anymore, so why persist with the band name rather than just a solo title? I guess it wouldn't please Tico and Bryan, but when the music is this shit it'd be nice to separate themselves from the great band that BJ once were. :(

    • Always loved the rock anthems they had. This song follows that direction and is a great opener for a reunion.  Did anybody actually say that there will be an album? I could imagine that this is only a single because they had some time during corona. Wall street was their worst album but it still had some good moments. This new song sounds as dark and serious as wall street but with the quality of early Wig Wam. 
    • Guess it shows the hiatus was needed.. Wall Street was a bad album, and I’m a fan of these guys.    I thought the same - I think they’ll still have a couple of ‘fun’ tracks just like Age’s solo stuff, Ammunition and previous Wig Wam albums but it looks like a more serious and less tongue-in-cheek direction.    Definitely looking forward to further info / music. 
    • For people without comorbidities, COVID-19 is not the apocalyptical virus the media makes it out to be. As recently as 3 weeks ago (I think?) the WHO reversed itself, now saying that societal lockdowns are NOT the answer. Great, we crippled the economy and destroyed peoples' jobs for what exactly? Protect/quarantine those in high risk groups, but open up society as a whole IMO. There's a certain segment that wants a 100.00% reliable solution or cure. It doesn't exist. It may NEVER exist. Tens of thousands of people die every year from just the flu and its side effects; we don't shut down the planet for it, and there isn't a 100% cure for it. The cure is proving worse than the disease... literally. P.S. At least here in the U.S., there is a large political component to how COVID-19 is being handled, with the motive of tilting the election. Democrat governors wanting to keep things locked down until after election day and then things will "magically" improve. Pelosi refusing to consider any aid package to the American people until after the election, regardless of how much the GOP is willing to negotiate. She's evil.
    • What are you a fucking idiot? what kind of a fucking bollocks statement is that mate, you must have your head so far up your ass, you can smell your own breath, never talk with that much sense G-Off, you cant let little things like reality and common sense get in the way of Covid, you should know that, now denounce your whiteness, apologize for your white privilege and say 10 hail marys, then we will forgive you.
    • Wow, huge song. Would never have believed they were still capable of that after the way they went off the rails so bad. But that is absolutely killer. Love it.  Will be interested to see what direction they take, lyrically, on the new album. Will it still be a kind of parody/joke thing, or will it be straight up more serious melodic hard rock like this track suggests? 
    • It's what made him famous, and for absolutely perfect reason, folks here is a little known comic, touring on the opey & anthony comedy tour, the previous comic was booed offstage, you've heard of notorious philly crowds, watch what happens when they start booing an unknown Bill Burr, this was legendary, wish it could have been recorded better.  
    • There's a couple of posts of this nature and yes, that's no good. But again, this side of the coin gets well represented, but can we allow some representation for the other side of the coin? Or is this a BLM situation again? Now, I don't have the stats any more than you or Moses or Jesus does. But let's say roughly 44,000,000 people have had this thing at last count. Are we allowed to acknowledge for a second that it is extremely likely that the overwhelming majority of these people have not and will not have lasting health issues? Are we allowed to say that, or are we just going to concentrate on the (probably relatively very small amount of) people that have - for whatever reason - had significant issues with the virus? Who, dare I say, would probably have issues had they had another non-Covid related health issue? I'm just going to pluck one from a hat because he's famous and we all know him, but can we acknowledge that Novak Djokovic had the virus and was then, a few weeks later,  playing tennis in Wimbledon and France at the highest possible level on the planet?  And there will be tens of millions of people that share a similar story to him. So let's please acknowledge this side of the coin before painting a picture that everyone who has had it is doomed for eternity.   I know this covid thing is something we need to acknowledge, but I just can't handle the over-dramatics, for lack of a better term. Yes, it's a part of life now. Like the flu, cancer and a million other ailments. It's there and we all know it. If I am not mistaken, there has never, ever been a vaccine for a coronavirus ever, in history. So there's probably a decent likelihood there may not ever be a vaccine for Covid-19. So what then? We just start every news bulletin with the daily infection rates for the rest of time, until the sun swallows earth? Is that the plan? When do we try to get on with some semblance of life, knowing what we know now?  One day, the human race is going to have to start living some kind of collective life again, with this thing amongst us. It is what it is.  Anyway, fuck it. I can't put into words properly my whole take on the thing. I'm just glad to see/hear I'm not alone. Covid-19 is not a good thing, BUT, in my opinion, the reaction to it has been, and continues to be well and truly disproportionate. I guess, in a nutshell, that's my 2 cents on the thing.  Let the hate commence but I don't really care because I already hate myself for wasting the time it took me to type that.  
    • Awesome isn’t it.. the production sounds improved and loving the heavier guitar tone. Wouldn’t surprise me if Erik Martensson wasn’t involved in some capacity.  Was only a few days back I was watching videos of the Sheffield gig back in 2010 - seriously good live band. 
    • One of my fave bands of all time. And to see them back for another round is simply an awesome news.  As for the new tune, it's a killer. Love it.
