Product Description

Product Description

Artistic freedom is what made this record possible, says Jon Bon Jovi. Musical freedom to explore and emotional freedom to express what was in our hearts. The result of that dynamic freedom is the new 12 songs CD Lost Highway - an album Jon describes as a Bon Jovi record influenced by Nashville. Bon Jovi has sold 120 million albums and performed 2,500 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 32 million people Who Says You Can't Go Home (with Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland) from Have A Nice Day won a Grammy and People's Choice Award Lost Highway is Bon Jovi's tenth studio album since the band formed in the eighties. Lost Highway is produced by Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and John Shanks (who co-produced Have A Nice Day, and whose credits include Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Chris Isaak and others)

Amazon.ca

Given the chart success of their Grammy-winning country single "Who Says You Can't Go Home," it's no surprise Bon Jovi upped the ante by recording an entire album paying homage to Nashville. In some ways, it's amazing they didn't do this sooner, given the way Keith Urban in particular is blurring country-pop lines, much as Garth Brooks and others did in the 1990s. To their credit, you won't find predictably shallow invocations of past country icons or any self-conscious, in-your-face down-home twang added strictly to remind the listener of the musical premise. In fact, Lost Highway isn't "Bon Jovi goes country" so much as a meaningful tribute to the Nashville ethos done on their own terms. They honor the spirit of the town through 12 simple, direct originals. The intimate, smoldering "(You Want To) Make a Memory," the ballad "Seat Next To You," "Lost Highway" and its roaring celebration of freedom, and "Stranger," an effective duet with LeAnn Rimes, all invoke country's spirit, and "I Love This Town," an eloquent nod to Nashville itself, ties it together admirably. --Rich Kienzle

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad detour Jan. 30 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Lost Highway is considered by some to be Bon Jovi's country album. I'm a country fan, but not what they call country music today. My country background is Johnny, Willie, Waylon & Kris. I consider this a pop album. As such, it is very strong and diverse. It has twang to it, and guest appearances by celebrated new country artists such as Big & Rich and Leanne Rimes.

I shelled out for the Japanese import not so much because I love the album, but more that I'm a collector of all things Jovi.

I don't mind Lost Highway, it is a pleasant listen all the way through and I think three songs in particular are really strong in the Bon Jovi canon:

"Lost Highway"
"Summertime"
"(You Want To) Make a Memory"

You'll notice those three are the least new country on the album, but that's what my taste is.

The sound is good, the album is well produced by John Shanks and Dann Huff. (Anybody remember when Dan Huff was in Giant? Man I'd like to track down a copy of that album, but I digress.) There are plenty of additional musicians supplying fiddle and other assorted stringed instruments. It sounds good on the stereo, well mixed and mastered.

The two bonus tracks are "Lonely" (slow one) and "Put The Boy Back In Cowboy" (rocker). They are standard Bon Jovi fare, nothing overly exceptional, and they fit the style of the rest of the CD. The bonus DVD is for Japanese region only, and I have no checked it out on my multi-region player yet. There are lots of other bonus tracks and bonus DVDs available in different releases, too numerous to mention here.

4 stars, good album.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Highway May Be A Country Road Nov. 29 2007
By Paul S. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
At the CMT Music Awards show last year Bon Jovi's "Who Says You Can't Go Home" won an award for the Best Collaborative Video and also went on to win a Grammy award for Best Country Vocal Collaboration. The single also hit number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. This all happened because it was a duet with Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland. It seems like only yesterday that Bon Jovi was considered a heavy metal band and for most of the last twenty-four years their albums and singles have reflected that. Granted, there have been a number of ballads over the years showing us all that the band wasn't just a bunch of one-dimensional headbangers.
Last year's successful foray into Country music wasn't just a fluke, as this CD proves. With artists like Keith Urban, Johnny Reid and others blurring the lines between Country and Rock everyday, the door is open for rock artists to experiment with a Nashville twist and in Bon Jovi's case it comes naturally, the new songs are still quintessential Bon Jovi.
The success of the first single, "Want To Make A Memory" was helped in a big way by a haunting music video and the song was familiar territory for the band. The second single release is "Lost Highway" and while it's burning up the hit singles and video charts, it shows there's a huge new market of fans that the band is reaching, as they did with last year's success. The album features a duet with LeAnn Rimes on "Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore" and with Big and Rich on "We Got It Going On". On this song you'll hear shades of Metallica in the guitar licks, as well as hints of "Living On A Prayer" in the melody. This song pretty much defines the phrase "crossover hit" yet "Whole Lot Of Leaving" and "One Step Closer" are pure CMT material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Bon Jovi Album With More Rock Than Country Oct. 9 2007
Format:Audio CD
Bon Jovi's latest album isn't the radical change of sound some have claimed; it's really more a small step in a different direction. The band have incorporated a country sound in some of their songs for years now, as songs like Someday I'll Be Saturday Night, Something For The Pain and even Blaze of Glory don't sound far removed from the music on country radio today, but after Who Says You Can't Go Home hit big on the country (and pop) charts last year, the band decided to base a whole album on that sound. However they don't go as far into that direction as you might think, as most of the album sounds like typical latter-day Bon Jovi; belonging more on rock radio (or at least soft-rock) than country. Even their collaboration with Big & Rich, We Got It Going On, sounds more like a remake of It's My Life, complete with Sambora's vocoder. In fact, with the exception of the occasional steel guitar, fiddle or accordion playing in the background, there isn't much difference between this album and any of their other albums from the last decade. That being said, there are some great songs on the album; Make a Memory is easily one of their best ballads; Lost Highway, Summertime and I Love This Town are the usual big car-driving, sing-alongs you'd expect from them, while the mid-tempo Whole Lot Of Leavin' demonstrates the best use of steel guitar in a Bon Jovi song. The album starts to run out of steam towards the end, as the songs become more forgettable; but overall if you've liked the music Bon Jovi's put out in the last decade or so, you should like this album as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock star turned to Country music July 10 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a long time Bon Jovi fan, I am abit disappointed about this album but not because the songs are bad. The songs are great but the problem is that this album doesn't has 1 single traditional Bon Jovi style rock song such as " It's my life" , " Living like a prayer" or "Have a nice day". A traditional Bon Jovi album is supposed to have rock songs and ballard songs equally divided into half half. Instead of doing that, this time they turned all the rock songs into country songs. Bon Jovi had made it into the country music market with the song "who said you can't go home" and so this album basically is a follow up of the success they had with that song. Adding new elements and trying new types of music is a good thing but I don't think they should completely change their style because they are losing some of the rock fans. On the other hand, the good thing about this album is that they still have a few ballard songs. The first single of this album "You want to make a memory" is a romantic soft ballard song just like "Thank You for loving me", "always" or "All about loving you" from the past. If you are looking for a classic Bon Jovi rock album like "slippy when wet" or "Crash" I guess this album is just not your cup of tea. Hopefully their next album will rock again and I hope they still remember that they were one of the most successful metal bands of the 80s.
