Question 7800 Fahrenheit!Good or Bad?

Well,I just wanted to add discussion about 7800 Fahrenheit album that was in my opinion one of better Bon Jovi records,but on the other hand this album has mark as Bon Jovi lesser effort from fans and band itself.
To me is better than whole 00's era albums,it has great rock anthems such as "Hardest Part is The Night","In and Out of Love","Only Lonely",plus 2 other gems "Always Run To You","Secret Dreams",it lacks in great ballad,it has one stupid song "To the Fire" but that's not reason for failure,is it?
I think that this album is way underrated,and I'm sad that band doesn't play songs from him live,I hoped maybe for MSG 08 they will make surprise,but no...

We actually had a nice discussion of Fahrenheit just a couple of months ago -

I don't expect that I'll ever see the guys do anything from the album live, so I was happy when Slippery When Wet, a local tribute band, did In & Out of Love the last time I saw them!

7800 is AWESOME!
Its a close fight with These Days for me. I love every song of it.
Maybe someday the band will play something from it.

It's a really good album and it's underrated. It would be really awsome if the next time they tour, they made 1 slot a night for a song off of the first two albums instead of playing Runaway all the time. it would make the show that much better.

Yes,great album and I think that only reason why Jon doesn't sing songs from it is because either they are vocaly demanding or maybe he thinks no one would listen to those songs anymore because of poor sales:

1.Slippery When Whet - over 28 million worldwide sales
2.Crossroads - over 25 million worldwide sales
3.New Jersey - over 18 million worldwide sales
4.Keep The Faith - over 13 million worldwide sales
5.These Days - over 10 million worldwide sales
6.Crush - over 9 million worldwide sales
7.Have a nice day - over 7 million worldwide sales
8.Bounce - over 6 million worldwide sales
9.Lost Highway - over 3.5 million worldwide sales
10.100 million fans can't be wrong - over 2.5 million worldwide sales
11.Bon Jovi - over 2 million US sales
12.7800 Fahrenheit - over 1 million US sales
13.This Left Feels Right - over 300.000 US sales

These figures where taken from wiki...
