I remember when Bon Jovi released “Runaway“. I thought they were pretty good, but it ended when they released Slippery When Wet in 1986. I did not like their sound anymore. I thought they were generic and would disappear soon. I was wrong. I do have some favourite Bon Jovi songs now, which were released in the 2000s.
After listening to the album, I have decided my earlier assessment of their music still holds true. There is nothing on this album to like. It sounds so bland. If you must listen to it, then I think try out the best song “Without Love” and the power ballad “Never Say Goodbye“. I wish he would remake both songs with his early 2000s sound. I hate his voice on this album.
Overall, I would skip this album. It is not worth listening to at all. Bon Jovi’s voice is too whiny on this album. The hit song have been overplayed. 5/10.
