Bon Jovi have maintained themselves as premier musicians over the last 17 years. This album shows what they can do live.
Richie (guitar) is simply amazing. His work on Wanted is breathtaking, and his brilliance is reflected on the rest of the tracks.
The missing star can be credited to the fact that Jon's vocals aren't especially strong on some of the tracks, especially It's My Life. I find it hard to believe that this incarnation of this track is the best they could find, because is is simply poor.
However, Someday I'll Be Saturday Night is sheer perfection. In its studio incarnation, it's an uplifting track. On this album, it's a landmark rollercoaster of emotions that will send goosebumps up your arms and shivers down your spine. In a shock turn, Jon's vocals are actually very good on this song. Richie gets the last laugh, as his guitar largely defines this track, and in fact the whole album.
In conclusion, this is good stuff, but buy Crossroads instead. It's a better greatest hits collection, as it has the ballads on it. I can't for the life of me work out why they didn't include Always on One Wild Night Live...
