Bon Jovi "Because We Can" Song Review ? 5 out of 5 stars
Rick Florino (ArtistsDirect)

Nobody can rock a stadium like Bon Jovi can.
That's just a fact at this point.



""Because We Can" kicks off with an epic build-up as Tico Torres' drums charge forward with Jon Bon Jovi's uncanny swagger. Richie Sambora's guitar revs up the tune, adding a distorted bliss that eventually gives way to a memorable lead line. David Bryan's work opens up the sound further as the track reaches heights of hits like "It's My Life". Every element converges to make one gigantic and invigorating tune worthy of a worldwide sing-a-long."

How do the reviews on a Bon Jovi album somehow affect the great and positive review on Chinese Democracy?

Honestly don't see how they are correlated, people are allowed to like what they like- it was still a great review, that isn't altered by posting a review on Bon Jovi.  Roll Eyes

Chinese Democracy is a great album.
I don't need a fake click bait website to tell me that.
It's a great album, because I enjoy listening to it. Period.

There is a real intellectual dishonesty with you Emily that goes like this:
Journalist gives a poor review of Chinese Democracy, and he is labelled a hack writer, and criticized for being part of the media cabal that is out to get Axl Rose and wont give him a fair shake.
Journalist#2 gives a positive review of Chinese Democracy, and he is suddenly a writer of taste and integrity.

The world doesn't work that way. you don't get to judge the merits of a source based on whether you agree with their opinion on Axl Rose.

Nothing exists in a vacuum. Artists direct is a bogus site, and I personally would be embarrassed to brag about a review from Rick Florino, who only gives out 5 star reviews, and whose site is littered with sponsored links.

My 2 cents.

You are poor at evaluating strangers via the internet, it isn't your forte' keep your day job.  Roll Eyes

I still like the review no matter how some "fans" attempt to discredit and devalue any positive comments directed at anything GNR.

Nothing amiss with being positive and refusing to allow toxic negativity to permeate your life. Wink

Agreed.

I would not single her out though.  This is fairly common with our fanbase.
