I know I wasn't the only one disappointed with Crush - but fear not, this is one hell of an album. To put it quite literally, it rocks !
'Undivided' contains subtle references to September 11, not soppy, sentimental or lucid but moving. 'All about lovin' you' is another beautiful ballad, which Bon Jovi specialize in. 'Bounce', the title track and 'Everyday' are both good rock pieces, my personal favourite being 'Hook me up'. This album contains some seriously heavy guitar work. Another of Jon's moral stories is 'Joey', whilst 'Wrong Side of Right' is another song that brings tears to your eyes, invoking the legendary cowboy relationship.
Jon seems to have regained the power in his voice and Richie is, as usual, simply amazing. Forget the temporary blip that was Crush, this is Bon Jovi back in full swing. Buy or regret it. Bon Jovi are just getting even better!
