That was clearly the sound they were after.
I guess makes sense what you're saying.

I don't know why, back in 2002 - in my head, they're were trying to emulate Linkin Park. That Creed comparison is much better than LP.

Default 1984-2004, 2005-2016 Two different eras

84-96 was the best era of the band by a mile.
I got an old skool record player for Xmas so have picked up the first 6 albums on vinyl.
They are a different class to anything released after.
Not to say I don't enjoy a lot of the newer stuff but the albums have been patchy since Crush

I'd break it down into 3 different eras

'84 to '96 - Bands Peak

'97 to '06 - More vocally conscience type albums - Although HAND / Shanks happened in '05, it's not really the divider for me...It was still all fresh and youthful to this point...

'07 to '17 - Lost Highway forward was really a pivotal change into a more mature / grown-up style Jon... This is where he stopped being a rock star and more of a guy just going through the motions...

I agree with this, yeah. HAND sounded youthful for sure.

Hmm with the drum machine angle? I think that started more so on It's My Life and even further back with Destination Anywhere but I think Bounce absolutely had LP elements though it also just sounds like that era of music.

It was the heavy guitars I guess? Or maybe some electronic elements on Everyday, but I remember thinking they're trying to get that Linkin Park feeling back at that time.

That's the problem with too many Bon Jovi albums, the memories start to fade. LOL
