“They can’t get enough of it all”

 

Earlier today we posted a piece about how you Young Americans should help save the USA from yet another Bon Jovi #1 album by investing in The Next Day instead.

Well, we were always going to be mildly biased in this matter and why should you take our word for just how good a record The Next Day is?

Here instead are the condensed opinions of forty plus American journalists who just happen to concur:
