Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Given the chart success of their Grammy-winning country single "Who Says You Can't Go Home," it's no surprise Bon Jovi upped the ante by recording an entire album paying homage to Nashville. In some ways, it's amazing they didn't do this sooner, given the way Keith Urban in particular is blurring country-pop lines, much as Garth Brooks and others did in the 1990s. To their credit, you won't find predictably shallow invocations of past country icons or any self-conscious, in-your-face down-home twang added strictly to remind the listener of the musical premise. In fact, Lost Highway isn't "Bon Jovi goes country" so much as a meaningful tribute to the Nashville ethos done on their own terms. They honor the spirit of the town through 12 simple, direct originals. The intimate, smoldering "(You Want to) Make a Memory," the ballad "Seat Next to You,", "Lost Highway" and its roaring celebration of freedom, and "Stranger," an effective duet with LeAnn Rimes, all invoke country's spirit, and "I Love This Town," an eloquent nod to Nashville itself, ties it together admirably. --Rich Kienzle

BBC Review

The scarily large hair and outrageously tight trousers may have fallen by the wayside, but Bon Jovi are back with their tenth studio album, and it's a surprisingly country-influenced record.

Lost Highway hasn't lost any of the huge sing-along choruses that has made Bon Jovi one of the largest stadium rocking bands in the world, but to their credit, they are trying something a bit different at the same time as giving their fans what they want. They have always flirted a bit with country/cowboy symbols in the past (''Wanted Dead Or Alive'', anybody?) but this time have got down and done the dirty on an album described as 'a Bon Jovi record influenced by Nashville'.

There are tracks here that are disappointingly pedestrian, such as Summertime, which you just want to end as soon as it starts, but then comes ''We Got It Going On'', a song stuffed full of classic Richie Sambora talkbox action, extended guitar solos, gravely vocals, name checks for Jon, and Richie, and the immortal line 'we'll be bangin' and sangin' just like the Rolling Stones'.

''(You Want To) Make A Memory'' and ''Seat Next To You'' are definite lighter in the air moments, but ''Everybody's Broken'' is a real stadium classic with lyrics like 'when you wonder why you're breathing/know you're not alone/it's so hard to believe/when it's easier to doubt'. You can almost hear Dolly Parton singing, sorry sangin', the words.

If you're a fan of Bon Jovi then there is nothing here that you won't like. For others, it certainly won't blow you away, but it won't make your ears bleed either. However, if you're after the likes of the classic 80s Slippery When Wet album, you won't find it here. Think big guitars tempered with country stylings, lyrics of emotional turmoil and ordinary people striving for something better, and you'll be about there. --Helen Groom

I have been faithfully listening to Bon Jovi since their first album was released well over twenty years ago. I've always considered Jovi as one of the finest storytellers of our time and also one of the best ballad writers as well...so country music was no so far fetched for the Jersey boys, since country music is primarily both elements. I was very happy to see the band's success with the country cross-over single "Who Says You can't Go Home" but a little hesitant about Bon Jovi releases a full album of country music. As a dedicated fan, I will always buy their album the day it comes out. I purchased LOST HIGHWAY from Target to get the bonus songs available on the disc...and this is the version of Jovi's new album to purchase!

Before the purchase of LOST HIGHWAY, I always ranked Keep the Faith and These Days as their finest albums. Now, I consider LOST HIGHWAY and These Days as their best albums to date. The new album is not just country, it's an amazing mix of Rock and country together that blend to make one incredible sound. I have been listening to their new album since the day it was released and have not been able to stop listening to it since.

Song Listing:

LOST HIGHWAY: This song was a great choice as the first song on the album. It has a care-free spirit about it and kicks the album off with a great feel. I have listened to this song many times and find myself mysteriously drawn back to it on a daily basis. A very relaxing song to listen to!!!
RATING: 4/5

SUMMERTIME: If you want a song to rock to while driving down the road with the windows down...look no further! This one has a classic rock feel to it with a little bit more of the carefree spirit. A great reminiscent number that took me back to the better times spent with friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bon Jovi Lost Highway 4 Oct 2010
By sabine
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lost Highway is an album with a good mixture of harder and slower songs. Musically, I think the band was trying to achieve a different style of song writing. Something they have done very well. The single "Lost Highway" is great and I like "I love this town" as it sounds more cheerful. An interesting all round album. Should have something for everybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jovi's got it goin on! 12 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is what happens when the quintesential American band dabble in the most American form of music, country. Bon Jovi have always been obsessed with cowboy imagery and have finally got to the point in their career where they are able to make the images a reality. For the first time since These Days the band are not trying to fit in with current musical trends and they are playing to their two main strengths - Superb songwriting and excellent musicianship. This is probably the best amalgamation of the solo styles of Jon and Richie that they've managed so far. Jon is allowed to explore the themes and ideas he started with Destination Anywhere while being elevated to a higher plain by Richie's rootsier contributions. The results are probably the most accurate account of what Bon Jovi is about since the career high of These Days.

The overall mood of the album is more reflective (understandable given the situations some of the band members are living through at the moment) and as a result the songs are very powerful without simply being legions of distorted guitars. There has been more thought put into individual parts than is evident on other recent albums and this contributes to the depth and quality of experience. The guitar solos are back too! Richie is an outstanding guitarist and has a wonderfully expressive style which he allows out to play here. Really adds to the albums worth. Also, We got it going on features a Peter Frampton-scaring talkbox solo which makes you want to jump around with joy. The only niggle is the fact that David Bryan's keyboards remain criminally underused. He is such a massive part of their live sound and it makes little sense why he appears almost redundant on recordings.

As a huge Jovi fan, I was always going to buy this album despite what the reviews said about it (because lets face it, the critics dont exactly love Bon Jovi) however im afraid to admit this time the critics got it right. The album sounds lazy, almost like Jon, Richie & Co rushed it. There are a few stand out tracks on the album such as "Make A Memory", "We Got It Going on" & "I Love This Town" but the rest i doubt i will ever bother listing to again. Im sure though when they release thier next studio album it will be back to business and less country infulenced!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album! Well worth buying! 20 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
I love this album! There's not a single song on this album that I don't like - I enjoy them all. My favourite tracks are:

1. Lost Highway: Great track - I saw it on telly being performed at the Royal Variety Show and came straight onto Amazon!(see You Tube)

2. Summertime: Starts with a really cool beat similar to Queen's "We will rock you". Very upbeat and uplifting. I can't help myself dancing to this one!

3. (You want to) make a memory: A great ballad. Heard it first on You Tube.

5. We got it going on: I absolutely have to get up and dance when this one is playing! Would love to hear it live.

6. Any other day: An excellent track that will surely appeal to the pop/rock market. I agree with the guy above that this must surely be their next single.

9. Till we ain't strangers anymore: Wow! A very beautiful & intimate duet with Leann Rimes. (See You Tube - a very intimate music video)

12. I love this town: A very cool song! I disagree with the guy who says it has no international appeal. I'm from South Africa and I love this song - makes me long for my home town. Any homesick South Africans, Aussies, Kiwis etc. will love this song!

I think this album is great value for money because it's not like the albums where you have to skip over some of the naf tracks - I enjoy every song and think this album has a very wide appeal.
