I think that people are being overly critical of this album. Is it Slippery When Wet? No, but it's every bit an album that deserves to take it's place on the catalog. Personally I enjoy the more thoughtful side of the new songs. When I was in my 20's and partying to SWW I wanted that album, now I've aged, and matured and I don't mind a glass of wine instead of beer from a keg sometimes. Give it a listen, it's good, quality stuff!

Before all of the Bon Jovi fan club members jump on me (of which I'm a member), let me categorically state that I am a HUGE Bon Jovi fan...as a guitar player, Richie is one of my music idols -- ditto Jon for his song-writing. In my opinion, they will go down as one of the best song-writing partnerships of all time. Furthermore, as a guitar player, I play pretty much every song in their catalog.

BUT....I hate to be honest...

This is one of the worst albums they've come out with -- up there with THIS LEFT FEELS RIGHT, and BOUNCE...i was going to even through 7800 Fahrenheit in the mix because it is such a dark album -- but, at least a case could be made that 7800 was obviously a heavy metal / hard rock album.

Except for "What About Now" and "That's What the Water Made Me", the rest of the songs on this new album are pretty bland and easily forgotten. (By the way, am I the only one who thinks the opening drum solo to "That's what the Water Made Me" is almost identical to the opening drum solo of "Just Older"??)

And while I realize that time moves on -- and with that it means music also changes with time -- does a band have to abandon most of it's musical roots? I mean, wasn't Bon Jovi a heavy metal / rock band at one time??

What happened to all of Richie's guitar solos? There aren't nearly as many solos as there once used to be...And, of the few solos that we do hear, they certainly are not the booming, melodic, defining pieces of art that Bon Jovi (and Sambora) are known for...and that have defined Bon Jovi's music and greatest hits.

Pop Question: What's up with Jon's country accent when he sings? You know what I'm talking about...that little twang that he developed from the LOST HIGHWAY album.

2013. 30 years of career, more than 100 million records sold, hundreds of prizes and countless live shows played - Bon Jovi are truly one of the greatest bands around the world. Time to take a rest? Not so if your name is Bon Jovi. With "What about Now" the boys from Jersey want to proof the world once again that they still do not think about retiring or taking it slow, but going on stage again and rock that world. In order to do so, they bring along twelve (if you exclude the bonus tracks) new songs, full of political criticism and stories of people that struggle in those hard times. But Bon Jovi would not be Bon Jovi if the overall message of the songs wouldn't be optimistic. No matter how hard the times are, stand up again, take that fight and go on! Why? Because We Can!
But can they still rock? Honestly, I have to say that I was never so torn apart with any of their records. Nevertheless I will try to write down why:

BECAUSE WE CAN (7/10):

I heard the song a couple of weeks ago when it was air played on German radios for the first time. And I was kind of shocked or let's say really irritated. That's the sound of Bon Jovi in 2013? The song did not convince me at all and reminded me more of a pop band than a rock band with 30 years of songwriting experiences. Really soft and way too much influenced by the Obama spirit (don't get me wrong, I like Obama a lot, but it was too much for me) - it actually sounded like Obama's political program put into a song. Bon Jovi have always been a critical and political band, but, let's say, their political attitude was never so obvious before.
So do I hate the song? No, not really, it changed after listening to it for a couple of times.

Bon Jovi has been at it for over 30 years now, and I give them a lot of credit. They took the world by storm when they came to life in the 1980s, putting out four classic melodic hard rock albums, the last two of which sold many millions and truly made them famous. I swore off of them for the latter half of the '90s when I felt that they had gone soft, but as I got older I grew to appreciate that era more. For sure, "Keep The Faith" is a classic, and while I refused to by "These Days" for many years due to how soft their singles had become, I appreciate it somewhat now.

But it was in the 2000s that Bon Jovi introduced themselves to a new generation of fans. "It's My Life" from the 2000 album "Crush" kind of put them back on the map for me, and I overall liked that album. However, both then and beyond all of the albums had unsatisfying moments, when they would have several songs drifting off into "cowboy anthem" and "sappy love song" mode. By far the most satisfying album of their for me from them in the 2000s was "Have a Nice Day", which was quality through and through. I even liked the "Who Says You Can't Go Home" duet because it was so catchy, heartfelt, and fun. After that it was more or less hit or miss again, but I still had to give them credit for putting out five studio albums plus other stuff (that I didn't purchase) throughout the decade. I even saw them in concert twice over that decade, and they proved both times to me that they are still a great band overall.

I provide all this background as a perspective for my view about "What About Now", their first studio album of the 2010s.
