Product Description


One Wild Night? Well, that's not strictly true, as this live album was recorded at Bon Jovi concerts spanning three decades. But why be pedantic when the result is a live album that effectively doubles as a greatest-hits collection? Bon Jovi's songs are tailor-made for stadiums and arenas, and, from classic fist-in-the-air rockers ("Livin' on a Prayer," "Bad Medicine," "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Runaway") to lighters-in-the-air numbers ("Keep the Faith," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Something to Believe In"), the choices are suitably larger than life. The career-reviving single "It's My Life" sounds right at home, as do great covers of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" (recorded, appropriately enough, in Johannesburg in 1995) and the Boomtown Rats' "I Don't Like Mondays" (performed with Sir Bob Geldof). --Robert Burrow

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Wild Enough - and not good enough June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
On the surface Bon Jovi's "One Wild Night" seems like a great concept. For starters, it's a long awaited Bon Jovi album. The concept seems interesting - it isn't really a live album from one night's worth of performance, but rather a compilation of 16 years of Bon Jovi's live performances (The title "One Wild Night" actually refers to a new studio track that is included with the CD). Although there are some good points, from an overall CD standpoint the concept doesn't work very well and this album is a disappointment.
By having a compilation of live songs as opposed to a live concert, the flow is disrupted. A complete concert flow would have added a better touch and give the listener an opportunity to hear the CD as if it were concert as well as get a better Bon Jovi experience. As for the songs themselves, one would expect a very high energy level with the performances. After all - this is Bon Jovi and the album is "One Wild Night". I never get the impression of a "party" on stage at any point on this collection. Songs such as "Livin on a Prayer", "You Give Love a Bad Name", and "Bad Medicine" are just extremely weak when comparing them to the studio versions. It just seemed like the "A" game was missing when these songs were performed. I would consider Bon Jovi's peak period in 1986-1990 (i.e. the "Slippery When Wet" and "New Jersey" albums), yet there are no live performances from this period. That is a shame, because we probably would have gotten a glimpse of Bon Jovi during their heyday. Instead we get the many of the performances from 1995 and 2000 - doesn't make much sense. The songs don't seem ordered very well either.

3.0 out of 5 stars What happened??? June 6 2003
By John
Format:Audio CD
Bon Jovi is one of the best live bands I have ever seen in concert, (and I have seen such mega acts as Paul McCartney, U2, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones and Nirvana) but this album did not seem to reflect the energy and quality of the live shows I have seen the group perform. It really is not a bad album, per se, BUT it could have and should have, been better. I am REALLY looking forward to their live acoustic album coming out in the fall, because if you have not heard such classics as "Livin' On A Prayer" or "Wanted Dead or Alive" acoustically, you will be in for a treat. Let's hope they get it right with that release, and even put some covers on it as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I'd hoped April 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the only official live album ever made by the best live album in the world although live songs have appeared on most singles. It is pretty good and pretty much contains the same songs as Crossroad their greatest hits album did. The good thing about this album is they didn't feel a need to put any of the These Days or Crush songs here except the good ones they actually released as singles.
Unlike a lot of live albums Bon Jovi have given samples from different concerts all over the world. My only criticism is that a lot of cities missed out when most which appear have a few songs to their name. Surely we could have heard from other Australian crowds such as Sydney, Perth etc, Other European and North American cities as well as anywhere else they've played. Surely they've played in Eastern Europe for example.
I also didn't like how they included the exact same version of I Don't Like Mondays which appears on the bonus disc with the These Days album release in 1995 which is the only reason I bought the These Days Album. Surely they could have included something the true fans don't already have.
The live songs are pretty good although again I would say not the greatest live versions I've heard of the songs represented. I own better live versions of the same songs which appear on singles and other bonus discs. If they're going for something different from previous releases then again why is the same version of I Don't like Mondays on here.
I would also have liked to see One Wild Night Live rather than just a repeat of the single version. It seems this album isn't really made for the fans who already have a lot of what appears.
Bon Jovi are by far the greatest live band in the world so they should have done a lot better job. If you've never been to a Bon Jovi concert then this album is a must.

I was not a big fan of Bon Jovi until I heard to this album, which is great, really great. All the songs are good. Buy it, and listen to it again and again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Live Bon Jovi CD Dec 31 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am not a fan of live albums, but a huge fan of Bon Jovi. My husband wanted to get this for me, and I almost talked him out of it, because I have all the other albums with these songs on them. I am glad I let him get it for me anyway. This is a great live version CD. I usually hate these CDs.
I was not too keen on the song with Sir Bob Geldof. I mean, what's the point? I want to hear the band..not him on a Bon Jovi CD. Their version of Rockin' in the Free World is good.
I could listen to them sing anything. They are truly one of the greatest rock bands ever.
If you are looking for a good collection of "greatest hits" I would recommend Crossroads over this CD. If you are a fan, you need to have this live version in your CD collection.
