As regards Bon Jovi, I bought the single , but having heard the album , it's nothing near Slippery , songwise or vibe wise , except perhaps Its my Life and One wild Night.Remember , its the band themselves brought in the Slippery reference....Jon trying to get some ex fans back on board by any chance.Its not a bad album, but Slippery it ain't!!!!!!!
ps , before any BJ fans decide to try lynch me, I have been a BJ fan since'84 and nothing would give me greater pleasure than to see BJ back at no 1 in the charts again (in the process giving the boy bands a good kick in the b***s) but the truth be told, Jon is rapidly trying (intentionally or not) to become the new Springsteen....too hard in fact.

'Crush' is still yet to be released here in England but almost everyone I know who is remotely interested either already had a copy or has at least heard it and decided it doesn't live up to the "Slippery for the Y2K" hype currently being generated and can't be bothered buying it now. So this raises two points...

1) Should they have gone with one worldwide release date to avoid the bootleg problem?

2) If the album sells shit loads to the mainstream irrespective of the melodic rock fan's viewpoint does melodic rock as we know and love it stand ANY chance of returning?

Surely this was the best hope the scene had for other bands to jump on the coat tails of. (At least until the Journey album)

Me, I'm still undecided about it. I just hope it starts the tills ringing!
