Playing off of Elvis Presleys 1959 album 50 Million Elvis Presley Fans Cant Be Wrong
, right down to the gold-lame suits the quartet dons on the cover, stalwart rockers Bon Jovi make a strong case that theyre one of the true populist bands of their era with a box set that serves up dozens of previously unheard and seldom heard offerings. Designed as a heaping 20-year anniversary feast for insatiable fans, the four-disc/bonus DVD collection is surprisingly vital and consistent, considering that just about everything included was initially either rejected or related to B-sides and soundtracks. The high quality of these castoffs is attributable to the bands habit of preparing dozens of tracks for each album and cutting loose strong compositions that didnt fit with the theme of the completed product. Thus, some stylistic stretches were left in the vaults (check out the Southside Johnny-style r&b of "Love Aint Nothing But a Four Letter Word"). Bon Jovi fans will find be delighted by this collection, and even skeptics may find themselves reconsidering these Jersey survivors. --Steven Stolder
