Once again, Richie Sambora excellently demonstrates his abilities as a lead guitarist. Yeah, some of the solos really aren't all that complicated, but hey, they're still solos, and they're still cool. All the guitar riffs sound awesome too.

The lyrics on this album aren't as sappy as earlier Bon Jovi studio offerings. Therefore, I liked them a lot better. Jon Bon Jovi and the guys are excellent singers. The vocals and lyrics fit in just fine with the music.
Overall Impression — 10
This was the first CD I bought that I actually enjoyed listening to all the way through. It's some really great stuff. I like all the songs on this album a lot, but my favorites are It's My Life, Thank You For Loving Me, Two Story Town, Next 100 Years, Just Older, One Wild Night, and Mystery Train. That's a lot o' songs. I would not be a very happy individual if I lost this album or if it got stolen, so yeah, I'd get it again. Bon Jovi forever!
