Default Stranger In This Town

11 yeras after after its release, I consider this album as one the finest record i've ever heard. Even if Bon Jovi, the band, still rules in my heart, I really think there's more soul in this album than in all the BJ discography. It was an attempt to take the skeletons out of the closet... so it was very emotionnal. Richie did an amazing job, his vocals are tremendous and gives me thrills to the bone. His guitar playing is simply sometimes as close as you can get to perfection.
So I say Thank you Richie.
to all those who can, just listen to his "the wind cries mary" cover. Jimi Hendrix would be proud!

That album is one of the greatest albums ever recorded. Once you get over the initial shock of Rest In Peace the album just flows. Great thing is you can listen to it regardless of what mood you're in.

I agree with what you have all said, especially Mr. Sambo. My ears and eyes must have been bugged out when I first heard "Rest In Peace", because I wasn't quite ready for what I was to hear. All of the songs are great. Truly one of the best in my vast collection. They only thing that disappoints me is when Richie says he "was thrown down from a place artistically" after it did not hit very big here in the USA.

I miss that album! I lent that and Undiscovered Soul to a mate of mine and then he "lost" them

I havent listened to that album for nearly a year now and I dunno if I should just give up hope and buy the albums again.

Try Kaaza, that's where I got it from. If not I'm sure somebody in the file sharing forum has it. I'd send it to you but I haven't got internet where I'm studying and it's on my P.C 300km s away!
