Same with the 80s tunes... Temptation has grown on me a lot since the box was released.

I initially liked Letter to a Friend... more than most of the box. The lyrics are descent but I think it is missing a strong chorus or hook. Not a typical BJ song, I guess.

My favorites from the box are Why Aren't You Dead, I Just Want To Be your Man (just sounds like something that should have been on These Days... and that is good enough to me), Crazy Love, Sleep While I Dream, Open All Night, and Last Chance Train. Everything is is somewhere in between descent and bad, besides most of the songs that have already been released.

I drove all night down streets that wouldn't bend
But somehow they drove me back here once again...

I'm with you on that one-I think Nobody's Hero is one of the best Jovi songs ever.

I love that one. It's one of the things that Jon and Richie do best and very simply.

You write your truth and I'll write mine.

I started to listening box set now Havenīt listen it long time. Box Set is full of great songs I like to discover them again and again. There are many songs what I love and songs what I usually skip.
I always liked Letter To A Friend. That songs grows from beginning to the end.
Radio is one of my favourite. The Fire Inside has something special. I donīt know why but I like Satellite Kidnap An Angel is sad but beautiful.
Usually I skip All I Wanna Do Is You, Shut Up and Kiss Me, Someday Just Might Be Tonight.

I hope Bon Jovi will relase another box set!
Flying like an aeroplane
Alive like a lonely note from John Coltrane
Run like it's a getaway
Say those things that you shouldn't say
Think about it wouldn't that be cool?
