Cinema Blend review
Itís not that Lost Highway is an entirely uninteresting effort; it has the Bon Jovi charm, swagger and romantic abandon present in the guys' big-haired, bright-eyed days of the 1980s, only slightly updated. The issue is that itís so geared toward their avid fan base that it passes most of us onlookers by, leaving us stranded on this now infamous lost highway.
Once you tear off the wrapping on the CD and open it up, there is a picture of the gracefully aging rockers sitting at a diner, sharing coffee together, as well as a laugh. This image can only mean these gents are poised for some mellowing out. And since they recorded a track with none other than country star LeAnn Rimes (ďTill We Aint Strangers AnymoreĒ), itís safe to say that mellowed out they have.
The title track is also the opening one, and it brings back the cheese that only the most ardent Bon Jovi fans could gobble up. This song is like receiving a big plate of overly greasy nachos at Taco Bell and thinking to yourself, "hey, this is too greasy for me, I should send it back." But then you look around the joint and see everyone else devouring the dish, and you realize thatís just how some people like it--and you donít even know why you walked in there in the first place.
