First of all I'd like to say that I have been a big fan of Bon Jovi's since '86, so I'm not some idiot just here to write crap about them. The new album, to me, it says a lot. Like most people I'll listen to the whole album once, then pick out the songs I really like, and like most of you I've been waiting for this album for five years, five long years. And to get to my point, no it's not a great album, it's not the best album Bon Jovi has put out, but the point is it's an album. The thing I'm trying to say is, bands and artists spend their time, heart, and soul to put out an album and it seems that no one appreciates it.. The most I've heard about this album is that it's a bunch of repeated songs.. "It's My Life" was quoted to be a remake of "Livin' On a Prayer". Well all I have to say is, if you don't like it, don't listen to it, if you hate it don't buy it, and if all you can do is complain about someone elses work, and how it wasn't what you expected, then don't expect so much. That's the problem with everyone, they expect too much, and when they don't get what they expect they complain untill something else comes along to complain about. The guys in the group are workers, like you and I, so give them a bloody break..
