The music was pretty cool. It was very remeniscent of their previous release, "Crush". There are lots of cool guitar riffs and solos, even though, once again, not all of them are that complicated. I still liked it though. Richie Sambora's a badass.
Lyrics — 10
Some of the lyrics take a different turn off of Bon Jovi's usual romantic style. Several of the songs focus on the events of September 11, encircling the suffering, pain, but strength of the American people on that day. These songs were written and performed very well.
Overall Impression — 10
This is not my favorite Bon Jovi album, but it's definitely up there near the top spot, which oddly enough is still vacant. My favorite songs were, Undivided, Everyday, The Distance, All About Loving You, Bounce, and Open All Night. I'd get it again if I lost or someone stole it. It's not a flawless record, but very close to being so. Bon Jovi rules!
