Finally got a copy of What About Now. I will agree that this is a bit less rocking than we'd like to hear from Jon & co. but it's still overall pretty enjoyable to me,if not great. if he made it more along the lines of HAND,for instance-I think most would be a bit happier. Still-the songwriting here is still pretty top-notch. Jon still has a way with the pen and it all comes together nicely for the most part. jUst a matter of what you expect to hear from the band anymore and if you only really dig their 80's rawk years. Even then,they had their ballads too. and..Jon's voice? He sounds exactly the same as always here. I can't hear ANY difference in his tone/timber from the older records. He's always had a bit of whiney-ness/gruffness and that little twangy thing going on. I sing a few of their tunes,and I have to replicate his voice. So you could say I'm a deep study of singer's tonality. Can't hear any difference/lessening of quality to Jon's singing over the years. He may not hit all the highest notes on tour like he once could--but that goes for most singers. One more thing--Andrew...two ballads at the end of the cd? You said that about Gotthard's LIpservice as I recall. Since when is a slower tempo/moodier track a 'ballad'? THe final track-The Fighter? now THAT's a ballad. Not agreeing with the cd's tracklisting either,tho. i"m thinking that track 6-That's What The Water Made Me,would have made the best lead track. THEN Because We Can would chime in nicely as a good solid sing-a-long type tune. In any event--lots of BJ bashing here and thought I'd toss in my 3 cents. What About Now-- good solid cd but not great. Overall fair review from the A-man. T
