Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

The growling, choppy guitar sample that opens the first track here, "It's My Life," is a virtual declaration of intent for the first Bon Jovi album in five years, a statement that they're updating the sound without abandoning the traditional virtues that made them one of the biggest bands on the planet. So make way for a hi-tech parade of smooth-but-gutsy rock anthems, almost any one of which will gladden the heart of every AOR radio programmer in the land. Unless the world has changed irredeemably, cuts like the midpaced heartbreak chugger "Say It Isn't So" are destined to become Bon Jovi standards, while an outbreak of scarf-waving and lighter-flicking is certain to accompany any live performance of the big weepie, "Thank You For Loving Me." Arguably, everything on Crush is done by the numbers, but with consummate pros like Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora at the helm, these are the kind of numbers you have to take seriously, because by the second time they kick into the chorus of any song it's damn near impossible not to sing along. --Johnny Black

Having just made some of the best music of all time, with the "Keep the Faith" era musical creativity blooming in the minds of Jon, Richie, and David, a worrisome questionmark was felt with the still-solid release of "These Days." Sadly in the music industry, if you're out of the limelight more than 2 years, you need a "comeback", even if you are a 100 million seller.
Hence a distraction from your artistic endeavors, and a preoccupation with getting a catchy hook broadcast through mass-media. This album's commercial success was an incredible fluke with the lucky homerun of "It's My Life." That's the only song that sold the album. For no reason that I can fathom, Richie started underplaying, the epic musical ventures of only a few years back seemed suddenly forgotten to Jon, and the band got a little safe, and dare I say, a bit bland for the otherwise very popular release, "Crush."
Bon Jovi? Bland? Blasphemous. Still, 60% of the album lacks real musical muscle and creativity. That's not just the conclusion derived from comparing the album to the past, God knows we need our band to evolve in order to stay relevant, and thank God with "Bounce," and the experimental (though in a safe way) "This Left Feels Right," we're a little more back on track now - if not the place on the track we were in 1989, atleast it's the same FORWARD moving railway. Nonetheless, "Crush" worried me a bit. Even though they still maintained the "Bon Jovi sound," the Bon Jovi sound began getting a little shy and wanting to blend in with what all the uninspired acts of the day tirelessly churn out to our abused ears. A comeback? NO! They were always there. A return to their roots? NO! This album is way too conservative for that.

1.0 out of 5 stars slush Sept. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
What's changed since Bon Hoki sped up his voice to hit the high notes on Livin' On a Prayer in 1986? Well, the lad and his band are using new haircare products, all posey like Reservoir Dogs with hundred dollar bouffants and holstered water pistols. Pinch yourself if you expected Crush would be anything other than Slippery When Wet, Version 8.1 - underachieving teeny-bop pop metal with heavy investments in dream date posturing and a bit of moldered bread crust for lyrical and musical development. Rife with simpleton observations (It's My Life, Just Older) and grade school rhyme schemes scotch-taped with a hamfist, this is negligent evolution at it's most patronizingly ignorable. The harmonies are a study in gobbledy vocal tricks, a wad of gimped and fussed-over enthusiasm for a textbook of unabashed chintz sentiments nicked arrantly from a Barbie colouring book (Thank You For Loving Me, I Got the Girl, She's a Mystery). The rest is just-add-water puff rock; imagineless chungling boom bam for everyone but dreamy-eyed, teddy bear-hugging Teen Beat girlies and beer-blitzed white boys cruising in Billy Joe Jim Bob's bondo'ed Trans Am on Main Street, Popcorntown, U.S.A. Give the trophy though to Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars, now officially the stupidest song title in the history of rock.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy it if you need a frisbee April 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bon Jovi is the greatest band in the world but the same can not be said about Crush. It's almost as if they weren't trying for this album and have just put in a heap of filler songs that didn't make it on previous albums. You can tell its bad when even at the live concert promoting this album ie One Wild Night tour they hardly played any songs from this album. No one there was disappointed.
It's My Life is the only great song from this album. One Wild Night version on this album is a lot slower than the single or on the Live album. Buy those singles and forget about this album unless you need a frisbee.
Of course huge Bon Jovi fans who buy anything with Bon Jovi's name on it will read this with blinders on and will click on the button saying this review was not helpful to them but I would imagine they would already have the album and this review is not written for them. I love New Jersey, Slippery When Wet, Keep the Faith and thought These Days and Bounce were allright but I have to be honest this album is terrible and I was very disapointed with it.
