This is easily the most accomplished album from the US rockers since 1988's New Jersey showing that their music retains the best hard rock style of old, combined with a diverse and mature sound for 2000. It is not Slippery When Wet II as early press would have you believe although 'It's My Life' fits closest to this description but a number of arena rockers such as 'Captain Crash' and 'One Wild Night' shows that the boys can still rock loud and proud. Bon Jovi just 'crushed' Wembley Stadium for the last time with a monster 3 hour show and this is the definitive album that is driving the worlds biggest rock band to even greater success. One note if you are going to get this album then consider getting the Australian or Japanese import version as it contains the excellent 'Neurotica.' (a rocker) which is not on the UK release. The three best songs, not counting 'Neurotica' are probably 'Just Older, 'Mystery Train' and '100 Years' but everyone will have their favourites. The worst song is 'I could make a living loving you' by a long way, it has some seriously corny lines. How it made the album is beyond me, while its fine for a concert or a b-side they shouldn't have used it on the CD, so if you would rather not have it buy the US version as its not included. However with 12-14 tracks depending where you buy this is a fine album that proves again how good quality music can stand the test of time. Crushing stuff!
