Contrary to some of the other reviews and their immense vocabulary of negative put-downs, I thought this was a great CD. Bon Jovi has once again come through with an album that you can listen to clear through without skipping tracks that you don't like. No, not all of them may be ones that you'll consider a favorite, but they are catchy. Perhaps that's the style of music I prefer, but I feel that this is simply a solid album. I thought Bon Jovi was great when they first came onto the scene and I still think they are great. They also put on an excellent stage show. For the record, I DID like Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars. No, it isn't a normal song, but I've heard LOTS that have sounded worse than it. I've never regretted purchasing this CD, and I don't think if you're a fan of them, you will be either.
