Love at first hearing:-))
Loving this band for almost a lifetime, I'm always suprised in what extent this band loves making music - and you can hear it! You can hear it in Jon's voice, in Richie's guitar solos and background vocals, in Tico's drumming and in Dave's wonderful piano playin' - shortly, it's their passion.
Turning now to BOUNCE:
First of all, many people always wanna compare all the records, but that's something impossible. Each record was written and recorded in a special era, in which the band had different attitudes towards life, family, living conditions and experiences, so their feelings and wishes were different. Each album is special and individual.
Bounce is another great record of Bon Jovi. I got the impression, that they worked REAL hard for this album (not, that they didn't work hard on the other records!), it means a lot to them.
This song is most influenced by the attacks of 9/11. It's an awesome song...do I have to say more after those lyrics:"Where we once were divided, now we stand united, we stand as one, undivided."??
This song reminds me a little bit of It's my life (Crush), it sounds a bit too much like it.
THE DISTANCE 10/10
Cool rock song, makes you wanna hear more:-)Great guitar.
It's a nice song about a friend, but not nice enough to get 10!
Wonderful sound, great lyrics, nice sound.
ALL ABOUT LOVIN' YOU 10/10
That's my favorite balad on this album. Its beautiful sound, Jon's romantic voice and those lyrics....best balad since Always.
HOOK ME UP 10/10
"Oh my God!", that was the first thought I had when hearing it for the first time! Rocky guitar, rock style.
RIGHT SIDE OF WRONG 3/10
My least fave of Bounce. Although Jon wrote it alone it's not as good as I expected it to be.
LOVE ME BACK TO LIFE 8/10
The title says it all....great song.
YOU HAD ME FROM HELLO 1/10
Not a song I could fall in love with...
WWWWOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!! Another smashing Bon Jovi song!!! Man, that rocks!!!!!!!! Can't wait to hear that rock guitar LIVE!
OPEN ALL NIGHT 4/10
Some time ago this title was nearly taken for the These Days Album. I expected more from this song. It's not bad, it's quite ok!
So, on the whole the album is great!
THANKS for the band for giving us another wonderful record to listen to. LOVE YA, see you on the road!
