2020 | Bon Jovi
There may be some Bon Jovi fans who would rather the rocker eschew the political stuff. We have a feeling when the time comes, when bands can play in front of crowds again, they’ll be singing, and rocking, along with the new songs. It’s that good.

It’s not a classic, no matter how much the die hard’s will protest, but neither is it a clunker. It stands up with most of the rest of their career and maybe, for Bon Jovi in 2020 that’s all you can ask.
No matter what the listeners think, it’s clear that Bon Jovi wanted to make a statement about 2020 with their music. They sure did—and they did it very well.
Bon Jovi finally gets political in his music and it's brilliant.
In all, 2020 is a storytelling album with peaks, valleys, and plenty of heartache. In every aspect, the album emulates real life as we are living it right now. Songs of peace, hope, and longing for resolution.
Love, love and more love. “Bad Medicine” has given way to “Beautiful Drug,” a song about how love is the cure that, in the absence of a vaccine, we need more now than ever.
Bon Jovi 2020 winds up getting swallowed up by its heavy-handed rhythms and earnest murk.
‘2020’ is not only a music album, it’s a document of the year we are living in. And that in itself is an amazing accomplishment. But make no mistake, ‘2020’ is not a Margaritas album. Open that red, dim the lights and prepare to be taken into an emotional, sometimes unsettling trip, but one you will not forget.
His points are still well done and listenable, which still counts.
