I have it. There are some songs that I wonder why they didn't use; some that I love; some that I hate. I haven't even been able to listen to the whole song of "Billy" yet. It gets started and I think, "This sucks" and never let it finish. I'm usually not a big fan of ballads, but I enjoy the ballads on the box set more than most of the ones they've released on CDs in the past few years.

Favorites: Satellite, You Can Sleep While I Dream, The One that Got Away, Rich Man..., River Runs Dry, Nobody's Hero, Kidnap an Angel, If Only in My Dreams.

You hit most of the points I wanted to make so I'll just quote you. I really really like most of the box set. Some of it I'm not fond of (Billy, Sympathy, We rule the night, Out of Bounds) come to mind. Some of it is really growing on me. It's funny to see the caliber of the songs they had to cut from past albums.

I don't have it. I just downloaded from iTunes some of the songs that I thought sounded good from the 30 second clips. I know, I'm a bad fan. I'm sure I'll buy the whole thing eventually, I just haven't gotten around to it yet..

I have it - I like alot of it - but I don't love all of it. Do I think it worth the price I paid for it - Oh yeah. I loved hearing the different eras and what was left out - and I find it interesting that they have now kept Radio - and Garageland (though in far fewer outings).

David! David David David David! David!

*coughs*

I have it. It's actually the first Bon Jovi music I ever bought. Which was kind of dumb, at the time - "I like a couple of their hits, so I'm gonna spend lots of money on the stuff that wasn't good enough to make the albums" - but it cemented me as a Bon Jovi fan.

And it's the first time I ever heard David sing! Mmmm. David.

Although Only In My Dreams turned me off of Tico's voice for a long long time.
