most post 2000

id say I dont really listen to them all the way through after These days. Since Crush i started skipping songs but if i had to choose one it would be Crush as only a couple im not keen on.

least....

easily THINFS and 2020.

Just do nothing for me with the exception of about 5/6 songs over the 2 albums. Oddly my dad who didnt like WAN or THINFS borrowed my 2020 CD (Japanese version) and really likes it especially as i told him to programe it the original order of the songs.

I think THINFS will grow in popularity, at least among the fanbase, in years to come. It's a solid Bon Jovi album. Had Richie been present it may have been elevated further.

2020 is one I rarely go back to. No tracks grabbed me upon that first listen, which is not something I could ever say before.

Most - The Circle

A few songs I'm not particularly into. I think it starts off really weak but then picks right up from Superman Tonight.

Least - 2020
I was on a flight the other day and put it on and I couldn't even get through it. 3/4 brilliant songs. But some absolute shockers too!

Its close call between Bounce, BB & LH, but the one iv listened to more is LH so ill go for that, i even enjoy WLOL ! Great album , seat next to you, Broken, Goin on, another day are as good in my eyes as anything they have put for that style of song.

Least fav is 2020, comes on shuffle every now & again but its just shit, bar the odd song....I detest Let it rain big time which i know is a fan favourite

Most - Bounce. I still have a fair few songs on shuffle these days. HAND and LH are great in places, too.

Least - anything post The Circle. I havent heard any album since all the way through. Even the new songs on the Greatest Hits I dont know.

I put together a playlist of all the best Bon Jovi songs from the last 3 albums (taken from another thread) and after a quick listen, they all sounded like they came from the same album and after 20 minutes into it, they all felt like one continuous song.

Nice thread!

I've given Crush a few listens but it never grew on me tbh. IML is an instant classic obviously but the rest of the album is unfortunately forgettable imo.

I liked Bounce a lot more. Undivided, the title track, The Distance, Everyday.. good songs but in the end the album suffers from this strange "quasi" metal approach / cheesy pop dichotomy. Probably the weirdest Bon Jovi record.

This Left Feels Right, cool idea but not my thing. Mediocre imo...

Have A Nice Day was similar to Bounce but better merged. The heavy guitars and the pop elements are more in tune with each other. The title track, Unbreakable (should've been another single instead of a ****ing bonus!), I am, WSYCGH, all great songs. I've listened to this record quite a few times and I still do occasionally.

Lost Highway. I know this one gets a lot of hate yet I'll never understand why. I love country music. It's my favorite post-2000 BJ record. Great display of different influences, a nice return to form for Sambora and new elements (violin, pedal steel). Feels a little less pretentious than the previous two records but the 2nd half is nowhere near as good as the first one, sadly. It's a good record imo, could've been great with less ballads and more delta blues / folk rock elements. I still listen to Lost Highway a few times a year.

I've gotta be honest, The Circle sounds beautiful. I really, really like the mix especially the guitars and the drums which seem a bit more refined. The whole cold, bright vibe is awesome and a nice contrast to the warm sound of Lost Highway. The first half is very good, then once again too many boring ballads drag the album down. I've given this one a few good listens and still do occasionally.

What About Now is clearly the end of Bon Jovi. Mediocre, a few good ideas here and there but overall boring and a plastic fest sound wise imo. Listened to it twice.

The rest is pure garbage to me, unfortunately. Sorry Jon! Destination Anywhere was great and I'll always have that record, I guess...

I have favourite songs on nearly each album post 2000. Crush, Bounce, Have a nice day and the circle I listened a lot when they came out. I still thinkt these are really great albums I can listen to without skipping any track. Nowadays I most listen to Have a nice day and The circle.
I never liked This left feels right and still don't. The only song I like is It's my life. Lost highway, What about now, Burning bridges, This house and 2020 never really grew on me and I don't consider them great albums, but I listen to some songs from these albums regularly.
