Default The best of the Richie-less years

Title, basically. Say you had access to everything the band did after Richie's exit (so including bonus tracks, leaked stuff, demos; also all of Burning Bridges minus Saturday Night) to compile an album of no more than 12 tracks.

Which are your picks?

Why not Saturday Night?

Richie co-wrote that one! It's not really much of a "here's what they were able to do without Richie's help" track.

Here's my picks, by the way:
This House Is Not for Sale
Rollercoaster
Labor of Love
When We Were Us
A Teardrop to the Sea
We Don't Run
Who Would You Die For?
Fingerprints
Do What You Can
Blood in the Water
Let It Rain
Ain't Done Yet

1. This House Is Not For Sale
2. We Donít Run
3. Let It Rain
4. Lower the Flag
5. Roller Coaster
6. Real Love
7. Living With the Ghost
8. Blood In the Water
9. Fingerprints
10. When We Were Us
11. Luv Can
12. I Will Drive You Home

Thatís not a bad collection of songs at all! Maybe a few too many low tempo tracks to work as a real album but qualitt wise very strong.

The order doesn't matter, so I'm doing it chronologically, more or less.

A teardrop To The Sea.
We Don'tRun.
Saturday Night (Is my election hahahaha).
Who Would You Die For.
Fingerprints.
This House is not for Sale.
God Bless This mess.
I Will Drive You Home.
When We Were Us.
Beautiful Drug.
Blood in the Water.
Luv can.
Bonus: Beautiful Day


Still, there are things that are not so great but that I often enjoy, like the rest of the Burning Bridges songs, others like New Year's day, Labor of Love, Walls, Living wih The Ghost (I hate that What About Now sound, but there's something in Jon's performance that I like), Limitless with Rickysambo's guitar solo, Let It Rain, Brothers In Arms, Lower The Flag, Ain't Done Yet and others.

It wasn't that bad, although my expectations are so low with each album... The biggest disappointment Jovi for me was Because We Can. They hit rock bottom with this one.

I donít really care about the order, so Iím putting them chronologically:

A Teardrop To The Sea
Who Would You Die For
Fingerprints
Living With The Ghost
Rollercoaster
The Devilís In The Temple
When We Were Us
Let It Rain
Blood In The Water
Brothers In Arms
Shine
Luv Can

Some of these (specifically The Devilís In The Temple and Shine) could potentially be replaced by others and I might change my mind about including them again later - itís a really close call and Iím a bit indecisive.
