And why do you keep saying "are" when referring to Bon Jovi, as if they're a real band. Bon Jovi is.
The fact that any of the tracks off of a Bon Jovi album are highlighted blue are rather obvious signs that TH doesn't know what the hell he's talking about when it comes to music.

Braver men than you could not even get through a Bon Jovi album like this. You are truly courageous, my friend.

I would also argue that the album had a better cover than most of the other ones you posted.

Also, "Europe" is 1/8th of the most half assed attempt at a band name I've ever seen. That averages out to about a 1/16th assed attempt.

It's a weird review because the write-ups for the green tracks don't really seem that positive other than track 3. Honestly it kind of seems like most of the songs could be shifted down one color - it's a 3/10 review but he ends up mostly loving it, which doesn't make a ton of sense. So I'd disagree that he doesn't know what he's talking about, but I'd agree that not many of these seem like they should be as positive as he rates them (and that the album is probably like a 1/10 at best).

Nah, see I'm a Bon Jovi fanboy so I'll pretty much listen to anything of theirs. The major fault with my system is that it can only be Green (Love) Red (Hate) or White (meh). If something is Meh then it either means I didn't think that much of it, or I haven't made up my mind. Or also, it didn't impress me enough to love or hate it. Most of the tracks here, even if they're not great, are not, to me, bad enough to get a Meh so they have to get a Love. I suppose ideally I should have a Like or Alright rating too, but then it gets too complicated.

I'd agree the album is very poor though, but I did find two tracks I really loved, so there.
