Product Description

Amazon.com

It's appropriate that Destination Anywhere is an album by Bon Jovi the solo artist as opposed to Bon Jovi the band. For while it contains the requisite number of catchy tunes and the right amount of romantic drama, it varies from the band's output in two important ways. First, much of the material on Destination Anywhere is more low-key than the band's high-octane anthems, offering intimacy, if not exactly introspection, from Jon Bon Jovi himself. Too, there's an experimental edge to the music, with sound samples, programmed drums, and keyboard washes that are as distant from the group's albums as California is from New Jersey. Eurythmic Dave Stewart, ex-Hooters Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian, and perennial hit maker Desmond Child kick in some help on "Queen of New Orleans," "Midnight in Chelsea," and "Ugly." The album-closing "August 7, 4:15," meanwhile, is a dramatic rocker about the murder of Bon Jovi's manager's child. Overall, Destination Anywhere is a solid effort, with Bon Jovi flexing some of the same muscles he's building with his budding acting career. --Daniel Durchholz

DESTINATION ANYWHERE

So, you say you're a Bon Jovi fan, eh? Or, maybe you're one of those nay-sayers who never believed in those athemic, guitar-laden rock songs, filled with aesthetic keyboard melodies and poetic lyrics. Or, worse yet, maybe you are actually one of those critics (barring myself, mind you. ) who has enjoyed the fruits of pleasure in knocking down a band that has stood the test of time, and has more talent in their pinkies than you do in your whole being. Regardless of what side of the fence you're standing on, you are in the know.

It's no news, then, that the rock band, Bon Jovi, has taken a hiatus (again) to explore other avenues. Jon Bon Jovi is the first one out of the camp (in between being busy with the challenge of taking a shot at an acting career) to throw some music the public's way. So, you think you have Jon Bon Jovi all figured out by now? After all, you have thirteen years of looking back on material by the band as a unit, not to mention Blaze of Glory, Jon's last solo effort back in 1990. So, since boys will be boys, and Jon will be Jon, this solo effort must be jam-packed with a dozen happy-go-lucky arena rock tunes, and some tear-jerking, highly emotional melodic numbers mixed into the bag. History usually repeats itself, and what's not broke don't fix, right? WRONG!!!!! Just when you thought you had this guy pegged, he whips you a curve ball.

Quite on purpose, Jon Bon Jovi has made an album which is "opposite of what people expect me to do." If you think having a fluffy head of hair for so many years has rendered this guy stupid, think again. If you can't beat someone at their own game, you're certainly going to play along, but with your own set of rules.

I bought this CD when it first came out a few years ago. I have to admit, when I first listened to it, I did not like it. At all. I guess I thought it was too...different. Unfortunately, I think I kind of put it in one of my "reject" CD piles. It must have been months later that I eventually dug it out and started listening to it again. After hearing it a few more times, I finally realized "Wow this is really good".
This album is COMPLETELY un-Bon Jovi, but that's probably one of the reasons it's so good. As always, Jon succeeds in blowing me away with his songwriting talents.
I guess you could say the songs are more mellow; don't expect any Livin' on a Prayers, Bad Medicines, etc. But it's a nice change to hear Jon sing (with the band it can be more like yelling) and without the blaring guitars. Don't get me wrong, Bon Jovi wouldn't be Bon Jovi without Richie or those amazing choruses, but this IS a solo album.
As a whole, this album is probably one of the best I've heard. I could get into detailing every song but it would take me forever because there are so many good things I could say about each one. In fact, this is one of only two CDs I've ever encountered (the other being Cross Road of course) that I can just put in the CD player and let it play. I really don't think there is even one bad song on it.
Do I recommend this album? Absolutely. BUT, if you go into it trying to compare it with Bon Jovi the band, you will likely have the same reaction I did at first. If you can accept it for the great music that it is, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Many people slated this album but I think it's a great one for proper mucic lovers who like the idea of songwriting and music from the soul. Every song is a 'piece of heart' and I can relate to every single one. I'm sure you could too. If you listen to Destination Anywhere in the small hours of the morning it'll make you want to pack your bags and just GO. Amazing. The real thing - non of this plastic pop.

Format: Audio CD
I appreciated what Jon was trying to do on this release (get away from "Bad Medicine" type songs I think), but in doing so he undermined what most of us love about him, his voice. The performance isn't poor, just very toned down from what we're used to. If you like to hear the soaring "Blaze of Glory" tracks or the heart-wrenching "Lie to Me" ballads, you will be somewhat disappointed with "Destination Anywhere." However, the songs are very good. "Janie, Don't You Take Your Love to Town" is my personal favorite. There is a lot to like on this album, but it is not the typical Jon Bon Jovi singing that we are used to.

This album shows us a different Bon Jovi than we are used to hearing, this album is more mature and has tremendous depth. These attributes are not usually connected with rock music, never the less they are fully applicable to this fantastic album. It's more mellow sound is an interesting mix of the traditional rock guitar style, and a nineties edge. The album is filled with excellent songs, no two songs sound the same, this is one of the strenghts of the album, it keeps the album alive, even after several months, even years, you'll still find yourself putting this album in the cd-player for yet another listen.
