What a return to form.,
This review is from: The Circle (Audio CD)
Ive heard the leaked album myself but will be buying this album on day of release. The first single seems to be getting mixed reviews at the minute but i quite like it. Maybe coz im glad its not a ballad or country inspired but glad its back to what bon jovi do best, great rock songs that by the chorus just uplift you. I know that isn't going to be enough for some bon jovi fans, especially after lost highway which split bon jovi fans opinion down the line but please if you ever liked any album or tune they ever did then give this album a listen. Its there best work since these days without a doubt. The problem i have with bon jovi is i think there piss poor at choosing the singles off there albums of late, if done correctly then people would get to hear something other than a ballad or one of the weaker mid tempo songs, i just think fans from years ago think there just to commercial or have gone soft.The circle is epic, in my opinion Sambora and torres shine on this album so much and in my opinion when Sambora is on form so are bon jovi. Songs like bullet, superman tonight, broken promiseland, happy now are different just like some of "these days" tracks were compared to other albums. The ballads are amazing when we ere beautiful is just magnificant, torres drumwork and jon's vocals and lyrics are amazing. Work for the working man is just a great steady rocker that just grabs you with the bass line at the start (bit like prayer), its jons take on the plight of the world right now. All in all every track is worthy of your time but please if you werent sure about "born to follow" dont let it put you off the best bon jovi album in over a decade.

I second the point about there choice of ablum tracks to release. They tend to favour the song with the easiest hook. Anywhoo if your a true fan youll buy the ablum and enjoy the rest. EVERYONE LSE CAN GO AND BLOW. other artist fans hear the best and buy the crap filler tracks. With Jovi there are no fillers. They work on over 30 song and narrow down to 12-16. even a crap song by jovi standardS is better than most from the current in singer/s.

You've hit the nail on the head when you say they are 'piss poor' at choosing their singles. If only they'd put a bit more effort into deciding what tracks to release when and where they would get more people getting hooked and buying the albums! And I think that ultimately you HAVE TO SEE THEM LIVE - THEY ROCK!!!!!!!!!!

I think you'll find it's not the band but the record company that choose the singles.
