Default One Wild Night LIVE review...

Ok.I know it's now almost 3 years soince it's been realesed but this rreview is just great an probably it can realte to most of BJ's music.So i had to share:

My latest guilty pleasure. (rate: 5)

While I never would have previously given Bon Jovi a moment's consideration (let alone a place in my CD collection), something has shifted in the great vortex of my musical understanding: I love this album! Perhaps it's the live, incredibly energetic renditions of these songs, much of the best of Bon Jovi ("Living on a Prayer", "You Give Love a Bad Name", etc.) and a couple of interesting covers (Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" and the Boomtown Rats' "I Don't Like Mondays" - featuring Bob Geldof on vocals). Or, maybe I'm just experiencing a mid-life crisis. Somehow, when I play this disc I feel like I can relate to the primal side of adolescent maleness, the one that is expressed through the shaking of a fist while screaming oneself hoarse. In language that speaks of love lost, gained, lost again, regained, and the union going on strike on top of everything else. Surely, Bon Jovi isn't the only band to explore this landscape, and they may not even be one of the best bands to have done it. But one listen to 'One Wild Night' will demonstrate to even the most snobbish of music fans what it means to have a good time while doing it. If you, like me, were raised by parents who thought the best way for a confused, angry teen to get out his frustrations was through a chain-gang style weekend of yard work in the glaring August sun - allow yourself a measure of better-late-than-never rebellion in the form of blasting this CD at top volume, and then telling the neighbors where to go when they complain.

It's true, I managed to get two friends hooked on Bon Jovi through OWN: Live. I really enjoyed the album for the first couple of listens, but after a while I realised that I had better bootlegs.

That's my opinion too only I related this review with the WHOLE BON JOVI MUSIC that's why i posted it.

I consider OWN Live an extremly weak live album...

Even crap live bands have better live albums.

Obie did a bad job...if it was Obie and not mainly the record company as I think.

It was OK, but too heavily-edited

Its difficult to imagine a worst live album of Bon Jovi.

OWN is a disgrace
