Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

First of all, hats off to Bon Jovi for trying something different with This Left Feels Right--a selective collection of their most popular songs with a twist. That twist isn't a purely acoustic reworking, MTV unplugged style--anybody looking for that experience will be sorely disappointed by what's on offer. What Bon Jovi have done is re-record these songs in a completely different way while maintaining the original lyrics, melody and song structure. What's different then? Well, quite a bit actually. Check out the almost trip-hop beat and distorted vocal of "Wanted Dead or Alive", or the lazy soul of "Livin' on a Prayer". "It's My Life" is a beautiful piano-only standout, almost worth having the whole album for.

The tracklisting isn't perfect, concentrating largely on their 1980s period (there's nothing from These Days, for instance). As such, the venture works as an effective cheese-extraction exercise, keeping the elements that made the originals so great, but removing shouty, hairspray-fuelled "whoa-yeahs". What we get is something that is closer to Jon Bon Jovi's last solo offering--the criminally underrated Destination Anyway. It doesn't always work ("Bed of Roses" just sounds like a warbling cover of the powerful original and by the time they reach "Always" it's obvious they've run out of new twists), and no doubt there will be legions of bemulleted faithfuls who will denounce this as blasphemy of the highest order. Sure, it's probably just record-company filler, but it's a worthwhile investment and you won't be embarrassed to have it on when your mates come round. --Cortman Virtue

3.0 out of 5 stars They got it right the first time November 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It pains me to give any Bon Jovi CD less than 4 or 5 stars, but after several listens to "This Left Feels Right" I can't give any more than 3.
There are two ways to listen to this CD - First, you can listen to these songs as remakes of classics. Considering they've been done thousands of times by the band, what new and interesting things can they come up with? Second, you can let each song stand on it's own as though it's the first time you've heard it - judge each on its own merit separate from the fact that it's a reprise of a classic. It's in this second method of listening that the CD fails. True, if listening in the academic sense of considering each song's original version compared with the new version it helps, but even then leaves you disappointed.
There are some great moments, however. I'll outline these below. And one of the things I enjoyed was being able to really hear Jon's lyrics crystal clear in certain offerings that were previously unclear (Bed Of Roses comes to mind as an example). I was just reminded of what a great lyricist he is.
A selected song-by-song walk-through might be helpful, and then I'll recap the 2 or 3 main themes I see throughout the CD.
Dead or Alive - This is probably the most disappointing offering on the CD. It's such a great song and had so much potential to be amazing on this CD. This version sounds like the club remix version of Dead or Alive. First of all, this definitely seems like the wrong choice for the song, and secondly (and worse) is that even in that context it doesn't sound good. In other words, even if you *had* to do the song in a programmed/remix sort of way, you could've done it much cooler than this. It sounds like old guys trying to be hip, using lame programmed beats and outdated remix effects.

One of the greatest bands in the history of Rock N Roll return with a very different kind of album.
Bon Jovi has released this CD, "This left feels right". The question is....Does Bon Jovi's left turn feel right for Bon Jovi fans?
Bon jovi has always said that their strength has been in their songwriting, and that they play the songs acoustically before they find the right mix that has given them so many hits over the years.
So Bon Jovi was going to go back to the basics and do an Acoustic album. In fact the band DID film and record an acoustic show from Yokohama Japan on their most recent Bounce Tour.
But then Jon and the boys decided that they wanted to give their fans something DIFFERENT.
So Bon Jovi chose 12 of their biggest hits and totally reworked the songs in an acoustic way.
Here is a brief summary of the songs........
1. Wanted Dead or Alive- "Wanted" sounds very diffeent from the classic version, and I would have preferred that Jon and Richie do a duet version of the song. However, I enjoyed the Led Zeppelin sound that occured at the end of the song.
2. Livin' on A Prayer- Like much of the album, this song grows on you the more you listen to it. At first, I didnt like it very much. But after a few times listening to it, I can see the vision that the band had for it, and its kind of nice. It takes a bit of getting used to Olivia d'Abo's voice, but it does make sense to use a man (Jon) and a woman (Olivia) in a song about "Tommy" and "Gina".
3. Bad Medicine- I am not too crazy about this version of the song. I look for the best in every Bon Jovi song because I am a fan, but this version of the song just doesnt do it for me. You may feel differently.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh My Word! January 25, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Stop! Wait. Now take a deep breath and say to yourself "these guys know what they're doing, I trust them".
Then forget you ever heard these songs in their original versions and tell yourself that evolution is a wholesome and good thing.
Now put the album in your CD and select "It's my life". Sit down (alone), concentrate and hit play.
Wait 2-3 minutes.
Tell me you haven't got a lump in your throat the size of a tennis ball!
These songs surprise and stretch your mind in new directions but at the same time they wrap around you like a warm comforting blanket, old friends that you can trust.
Yep they did it right, Jon and the guys take you on a journey through their songs but make you take a different view of them, to explore the lyrics and structure in new and interesting ways.
It's time to select "Keep the Faith". Hit play and stand up.
Hmmmmm... your foot is twitching, they did it again. The track is almost mesmeric with Richie fingerpicking a subtle variation on the original baseline. I'll wager you play it again just for more of those chords.
The album is a tour de force in musical exploration and expression. Honestly? My hunch is if you had heard these versions of the songs first, they would be your anthems and the originals would take some getting used to. There is only one way to deal with this CD, SIT DOWN and listen to it, it's too complex to casually listen to; it takes conecntartion the first few times... and it does take 2-3 plays before you're hooked.
...But you WILL be hooked.
Now it's easy, throw open your windows, turn it up and treat the neighbours to "Wanted Dead or Alive".
I'll wager you're smiling BIG TIME!
Get smart, buy it, pinch yourself and never look back.
