I think they absolutely kill the album with tracks 3 and 4. It sucks the life out of the opening two songs.
As I've said, track 3 is nothing short of awful, and as for track 4... 'Don't want your picture on my cell phone, I want you here with me'. Who the flower does flowers think he is? Carly Rae Jepsom?
Horrendous pairing of songs and awful placement on the album.
Thankfully other parts of the album are very listenable, if not particularly challenging for the band.
Live they've always been strong, but I can't even see Bon Jovi getting far with The Way it Was and Here With Me. Well, OK, actually I can...probably to number 1. But that's precisely my point...
I think. I'm not sure what my point is. Or was.
Oh yeah. Tracks 3 and 4. Dogs.
