9 years since it was released today (in the UK at least).

The last good album by the real Bon Jovi.
The whiskey bottle comforts me and tells me not to cry ...

The beginning of the end for me... never really found much redeeming about this album at all. I feel it was a big drop in quality after Lost Highway, with an even bigger dip to follow with What About Now...

The last proper band album, IMO. WAN was a hodgepodge and without Richie, the dynamics are just way different (the amount of outside writers, for one). That said, the performances are a tad too anemic to make the songs come to their full potential. Some really good stuff on here, but the pace is a tad plodding.

Jesus.. It seems like just yesterday.

Yes, I do regard it as the last great album and the final great tour. It's why I am at peace today with the state of things. I invested in that tour and it fully delivered. There is really nothing the band can do to exceed it at this point short of new songs (While WAN was a dip, Thick As Thieves is way up there in the top group of all time favorite Bon Jovi songs,) which is why I got excited over the THINFS live listening parties. Jon will never be able to sing the songs I got to hear on that tour and I accept that reality. It was going to come.

Meanwhile, I have memories like this one from the tour:
I said, all it's about is the boy checked out, he couldn't handle reality.

Average album that sounds better than it is due to WAN andTHINFS.
TC was voted one of the worst albums of the year and is hard to disagree.
3 or 4 good songs and the rest are dull and boring.
Enjoyed the 02 gigs even though they didn’t play an album In full as they hinted they would
