Cross raods is my fav but if I had to pick original studio album then it would have to be THESE DAYS.
This album is not what you expect it to be when you think of Bon Jovi. Most people think of Livin on a prayer or it's my life so when they put this album on they are in complete shock.
This album wasn't what I expected at all. I really didn't know what to expect when I saw "Hey God" and " These Days" on their "live from London" DVD. All I knew was they were great songs, fantastic in fact, and nothing like I had heard from Bon Jovi.
Whether you love or hate Bon Jovi I think that you will truly love this album and listen to it time and time again. Here Bon Jovi offers you an album that is nothing like they had realeased before or had realeased since.
This is more than worth buying and adding to your record collection, trust me you will like it.
The production on These Days is superb, down to Jon and Richie with Peter Collins (who should also be thanked for Always), creating a feeling of warmth and familiarity as some of the bands greatest songs ooze out of the speakers and impress themselves on your memory.
The rockier tracks have greater edge than before, such as the opener "Hey God" in which Jon questions life in the nineties and Richie's guitar howls in pain as he strangles its neck, or the surging "Something For The Pain" that follows and became a classic Bon Jovi track.And then there's the swinging, balls-out tune "Damned" which features the Astbury Dukes' horn section joining in the fun.
Of course there's the ballads, it wouldn't be a Bon Jovi album otherwise, but here there are ballads which have rarely been so heartfelt and true, the ache in Jon's voice on the hit "This Aint A Love Song" and "Lie To Me" is about as emotional as he's ever sung. Not to mention the atmosphere created on "It's Hard Letting You Go" (originally written as a thank - you to the producers of Moonlight and Valentino) created by Jon on keyboards and featuring only Jon and Richie.
Later Bon Jovi albums have featured story songs of epic proportions (Keep The Faith's superb "Dry County")and These Days is no exception,with the brilliant title track bringing to mind Springsteen, as does the majority of the album, while the bluesey, jam-like "Bleeding In My Arms" is a stroke of genius.
The variety and quality of this album stand testament to the bands versatility and excellence. This is more than a mere album, its more than a Bon Jovi album, its a work of art that will stand the test of time.
The album is unstoppable, goes from heavier stuff, like "hey god" to ballads like in "lie to me" or "it's hard letting you go" and plus, probably one of the best bon jovi songs ever "hearts breaking even". The lyrics are the best ever. This is not just an album, it's a document.
My favourites would have to be Bitter Wine, These Days (fantastic) and My Guitar Lies Bleeding in my Arms. This last song has a great eerie sound towards the end as Jon belts out thsoe words, which always causes goosebumps.
I agree with previous comments that it's just one of those albums you put in your CD player and never seem to take out. You can listen to it over and over again and it never gets boring. It is most definately worth investing in, be you a fan who hasn't yet bought it or a newcomer who wants to hear some of the best of this brilliant rock band.
These days is definetly the most serious and heavy album theyve done (not including Bounce because thats heavy as well). All the songs (like typical Bon Jovi) are serious and have a true message to life. Hey God, If that whats it takes, All I wnat is Everything are the true songs of this albums.
It's also the bands first album since Bon Jovi replaced Alec John Such with Hugh McDonald.
Of course where is Bon Jovi without the power ballads? I wouldnt say that theyre powerful but the ballads are beautiful and loving- more tissues needed.
A great album overall!!!
