The growling, choppy guitar sample that opens the first track here, "It's My Life", is a virtual declaration of intent for the first Bon Jovi album in five years, a statement that they're updating the sound without abandoning the traditional virtues that made them one of the biggest bands on the planet. So make way for a hi-tech parade of smooth-but-gutsy rock anthems, almost any one of which will gladden the heart of every AOR radio programmer in the land. Unless the world has changed irredeemably, cuts such as the mid-paced heartbreak chugger "Say It Isn't So" are destined to become Bon Jovi standards, while an outbreak of scarf-waving and lighter-flicking is certain to accompany any live performance of the big weepy, "Thank You For Loving Me". Arguably, everything on Crush is done by the numbers, but with consummate pros like Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora at the helm, these are the kind of numbers you have to take seriously, because by the second time they kick into the chorus of any song it's damn near impossible not to sing along. --Johnny Black

I used to think every BJ album after Keep The Faith was rubbish. I recently bought These Days and loved it, a really 'grown up' album which invited me to sample Crush. Well if I'm not surprised to hell! I love These Days and Crush, two brilliant CDs which are completely different to the 80s material but still very, very good. These are mature songs and perfect for me. 10/10

At the time of release this was heavily criticised, but five years on, lets re-review the album...
It's My Life is an undisputed modern classic. Searing vocals, heavy rock sounds, and a fantastic beat make it a real crowd pleaser that just can't be ignored.
Unfortunately, the album is not full of these rock tunes, but settles down into quite a false sense of relaxation.
Forget Mystery Train, Save The World and She's a Mystery - all some of Bon Jovi's worst pieces of music. They've earned enough respect for us to gloss over some of their dodgy days! Thankyou For Loving Me is also not particularly inspiring, just trying to be an Always wannabe.
But skip to tracks like One Wild Night, Captain Crash and Next 100 Years, and you'll see a band that can, and do, continue to rock as hard as ever. Captain Crash is fantastic in it's fast-paced beat, bubblegum lyrics and humourous style. it's a good, old-fashioned Bon Jovi FUN, song.
Next 100 Years starts off quite slowly, but when you get to the guitar solo be prepared to be rocked off your feet! Richie plays the guitar to perfection, and revels in this opportunity to really take centre stage.
Just Older is another, overlooked as boring and hokey upon release, it is actually quite poignant and nostalgic, and a real heart clencher if you read the lyrics. BJovi once again showing their versatility.
Crush is pretty much essential for the rock-loving enthusiast. Once again, Bon Jovi have re-defined themselves for a new era of music fans that has taken them through three generations.
They may be getting older, but their ability to ROCK hasn't.

Bon Jovi's entrance to the year 2000 has a modern fresh feel about the songs that were recorded to make an album like "Crush", which strays far enough into pop/rock adding a mixture of various sound elements. First off, Bon Jovi enters the charts with a bit of the Slippery when wet glory days talk-box laden, ("It's My Life") that remains a strong track. Followed by a Beatles sounding ("Say It Isn't So"), and even sweet, stomping British glam T. Rex or David Bowie ("Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars"), a little different from their previous work. Always a big influence of Job Bon Jovi, a Springsteen-flavored ("Two Story Town") and the gutsy ("Next Hundred Years") with major guitar riffs from Sambora!. ("Just Older") sums up Bon Jovi's acceptance of their current status nicely and is still able to deliver. ("I Got The Girl") and ("Mystery Train") lend it's hand to a rather pop sound while requisite power ballads of ("Thank You for Loving Me") and ("Save the World") are kinda' mawkish in a working-class way (Both could be soundtrack songs taken from Meet Joe Black and Armageddon respectively!). ("She's A Mystery") is a smooth, slick sounding tone delivered with warmth while ("One Wild Night") is a welcome gritty ending for rockers, that has now taken on a re-mixed version for 2001!. The bonus tracks, not previously included are ("I could make a living out of loving you"), a fair soft rock number. The last song ("Neurotica") is the odd ball of the set but quite a polished gem that certainly makes it's impression with distorted overtones ringing through.Read more ›

"Crush" is 100% "classic" Bon Jovi sound. It is a little mellower than albums like "Slippery When Wet" and "New Jersey". It lacks any songs that will be considered "hard rock anthems" like those albums contain. Songs like "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Bad Medicine" are ALWAYS going to be the type of songs this band's future efforts are going to be judged against...no matter HOW hard they may try to move past that particular phase of their career. This album still manages to capture the feel of earlier Bon Jovi albums. There is a very distinct quality about Bon Jovi that makes their music unmistakable. On this album, the music is more on the mature side. Incredible quality but maybe a little mellower than some fans want. Don't get me wrong, this album IS a classic in the making. There is a little experimentation going on in the songwriting as well. "Say It Isn't So" really reminds me of Tal Bachman's "She's So High". There are a couple of classic ballads, "Thank You for Loving Me" and "Save the World". The rest of the album is the sound you would expect from Bon Jovi. Songs like; "It's My Life", "Just Older", "Captain Crash & the Beauty Queen From Mars", "I've Got the Girl", and "One Wild Night" are on the "faster" side of the Bon Jovi sound while the rest are a little mellower. Overall, I would say this album is one you will definitely want to add to your collection, whether or not you are a Bon Jovi fan. It isn't QUITE "Slippery When Wet", but, it clearly was not intended to be. As far as melodic hard rock goes, you won't usually find better overall quality than this!Read more ›
