I listened to 2 tribute albums to "Bon Jovi" and compared them this week.

"Always: A Millennium Tribute To Bon Jovi"

and

"An All Star Tribute To Bon Jovi"


"Always: A Millennium Tribute To Bon Jovi"
can meet what buyers want to have from tribute albums like this.

"An All Star Tribute To Bon Jovi"
collected artists whose genres are almost same.

On the other hand,
"Always: A Millennium Tribute To Bon Jovi"
collected artists from rock, blues, and pops.


From this album,
"I'll Be There For You" performed by "Jasy Andrews" who is only female artist joining this tribute album.

This "I'll Be There For You" cuts a conspicuous figure because of female voice, a piano accompaniment, and an arrangement, which is not bad, and it made me feel like I want to listen again.

It has kinda gentleness cuz maybe she added female's understanding to an original one written by males. (of course, by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora)

How about comparing this version with the original version??

This comes from "Hoobastank's" 3rd album.

The former album "The Reason" made a great success worldwide,
but for me, personaly, I cannot forget that 1st album impacted me so bad
when I listened to it at a listening machine at Tower Records.

"Hoobastank" had been my Heavy Rotation for a while.

First I listened to this 3rd album, I felt that it lost its speed their songs had before
in both 1st and 2nd albums.

But this "Without A Fight" seems to inherit that speed they used to have.

As might be expected, thier melody is great!!

But as an album, it seems not to have structual ideas.
I mean, it is kinda flat.

And I felt "?"

I'm wondering if they wanted to try changing??

This album must be something I need to continue to listen to for a while,
and I will find something changed good in new songs.

Anyway, what a bad design of this album jacket!!

It's been reported more than 10 years that "Chinese Democracy" (New Album) had been recorded and would be out.

There is also a rumor that it would be out within this year, though...

"You're Crazy" is a song from that "Guns N' Roses" 2nd album (1988 released).

This is the "acoustic version" of the same song that is from 1st album "Appetite For Destruction".

Slower than the "original version, and it has kinda laziness in a good way,
but that laziness makes it cool.

This song makes me get a picture that those guys have a drink at a bar and feel better and start to play.

Playing in the dark, drinking Jack Daniel's, and smoking.

What I'm saying is that kind of laziness....

I cannot imagine that those guys get together and have a drink....

Well, let's wait but not pay much attention to if "Chinese Democracy" would be out within this year.


"Velvet Revolver's" new album might be released before it is out, though....

Re-United!!

Many rock bands that had been on the flow in 80s were swallowed up by the waves of grunge in 90s...

And made a pause or broke up...

Those kind of bands often have been re-united these days (early 2000s).

The waves of grunge had got Crüe into a mess.
But those guys have re-united (with original members).



With "Red, White & Crue"(released last year) and the following tours,
Crüe got their golden days back!!

I was knocked out first I listened to "Carnival Of Sins"(Live Album) that gets jammed with
their exploding energy at a listening machine and bought it.

I think this album has much enegy than "Live: Entertainment Or Death" (releases in 1999).


"If I Die Tomorrow" is one of new songs out of "Red, White & Crue",
and took Crüe back to gorgeous stages again!!

("Simple Plan" wrote "If I Die Tomorrow" and "Nikki Sixx" re-wrote it and finished it up.)

05. Born To Be My Baby// Bon Jovi// New Jersey// Rock


This week was Bon Jovi's week.

I listened to Bon Jovi's songs intentionally cuz I got tickets for their lives at Giants Stadium.

I can say "Born To Be My Baby" is one of the best songs from "New Jersey" that has other great songs.

But they hadn't played it at their lives for a long time.

They might have backed away from playing it...

But I remember that right after releasing "This Left Feels Right", they'd started to play it again at their lives...

Their feeling to this song might have changed after challenging a new arrangement...

It's been played every night on this "Have A Nice Day Tour".

This is one song that I expect to listen to at their lives at Giants Stadium this coming July!!
