Default New Jersey or These Days, which do you prefer?

I've just been reading a different thread which mentions New Jersey and These Days as the bands best albums. Everyone has their favourite album from Bon Jovi but out of these two albums, which will come out on top?

These Days has better songwriting, but musically New Jersey is much better IMO.

These Days. The songs have more of a timeless feel where NJ just sounds dated to me.

For me, NJ is the epitome of Bon Jovi.

Slippery sounds dated but I don't think New Jersey does.

For me it's These Days, then KTF, then New Jersey. I like more songs from New Jersey than I do from KTF, but the KTF ones were everything to me when I go t into this band, and they still are.

New Jersey by far. The only song from the These Days sessions I really enjoy is Wedding Day, and it's not even on the album

I love both of them, but I voted for "These Days" because it was the first Bon Jovi album I got, so I'll always choose TD.

Unsure. NJ because musically, its better. TD is lyrically better, so it depends on what you are looking for in an album.
NJ has a lot of catchy songs, TD has a ton of lyrical masterpieces.
