Please post your thoughts and comments on this SACD (y) :phones (n)


Hey Bon Jovi fans! Does this SACD have the same 5.1 mixes as the hits that are on the "Slippery When Wet" DVD-A, or are these different?

These are completely new rerecordings of the songs so they don't use any of the same audio material from slippery when wet. That being said it is a fun laid back cd that has acoustic/mellow versions of their well known hits. Most are done very well and the mix is good too.

I like it. Not perfect, but seems to improve with time. Fidelity could be a little bit warmer sounding, but still decent enough. Surround mix didn't exactly WOW me at the first listen, but I dig it more and more each week. Nice job, Obie!

Yeah, I have to agree with what has been said. I enjoy it. It is a refreshing take on their best songs. I liked Bon Jovi, but never loved them, so something new and differant yet familier was nice. The mix was fine not fantastic. It's a hybrid so definatly worth owning and nice to be able to play wherever you are.

Ima give it a 7.

I would like to add that I havent heard any of their multi channel Dual Disk stuff so I have no idea how this mix compares to them.

If I'm cynical I'd say that this one was done for their fans in the 80s who are now "Soccer Moms", and prefer stuff thats a bit more mellow, but are reminiscing about their younger days.:eek:

Having said that its a tasteful surround mix and its pleasant - I'll vote after a few more listens. :cool:

The recording is good, the mix is very tasteful, at the start you think where is the surround, but then it kicks in.....

The music is good but for me its all a bit "formulaic". 8 votes now....

I need to look for this and play it again.

Looks like the link from my ancient post 05-27-2006 doesn't work anymore.

Still available new. Must be a slow seller.

Well, right off the bat I don't hate half the arrangements on this.
The liner notes explain how this started out as a more conventional acoustic album, like MTV Unplugged, but a producer convinced them to keep going "to left field" on all the songs (make them as different and weird as possible).
Well, at least they have some balls to take a risk, but this mostly doesn't work for me.
Not yet anyway. And not sure when, if ever I'll feel like giving it another chance...
Oh, 1 automatic point deduction for including a song called "I'll be There for You." How many times will that title be used (or something close like "I'll be Here for You")?
Gag. Quite a few trite lyrics, come to think of it...
