Review: Bon Jovi - This Left Feels Right

UUUUUUUUUUUURGH!

Bon Jovi is a good band, they made very good songs and, when you look to the tracklist, you imagine this will be a good album. But it's completely the opposite.

It starts with a strange and horrible version for Wanted Dead or Alive with a boring guitar riff. Then you face a terrible version Livin' on a Prayer. The original song is probably one of their Top5, but this version is surely in Bottom5. This song makes you angry and want to push the stop button as fast as possible.

But, let's go on. Then you find miserable versions of Bad Medicine, It's My Life and Lay Your Hands on Me, where all the energy of these songs are lost and they're transformed into tasteless ballads.

You Give Love a Bad Name probably is the only good song in the album, as the blues version (even if worse than the original) is rather pleasant.

Then we go with Bed Of Roses without its main feature (the opening guitar solo), more energyless versions of powerful songs (Everyday, Born To Be My Baby and Keep the Faith).

In the end, two songs which didn't change so much, the ever-tasteless I'll Be There For You and Always.

If you are a Bon Jovi fan or a rock'n'roll fan, avoid this album. If you just want calm and tasteless songs to play while you are driving that may be a good choice.

Score: 7/20
