4.0 out of 5 stars One of their best April 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
These days is in my opinion one of Bon Jovi's best albums. It seems to be underrated my the majority of fans because it lacks any of the stadia rock songs that Bon Jovi are often associated. If someone approaches this album looking for hits like Living on a Prayer or Keep the Faith, they are likely to be disappointed. However, if they approach the album looking for strong, albeit slower, songs they would be pleasantly surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem March 12 2004
By teddyb
Format:Audio CD
Back in the summer of 1995, when I was gearing up to go to university, Bon Jovi dropped These Days. I bought it the first day it came out, being the geeky fan that I am and immediately put it into my stereo. I had been hearing 'This Ain't A Love Song' on the radio for about a month, so I was pretty primed for the entire album.
This album, like all of my favourite albums, was a slow burner for me. I didn't love it the first few times I listened to it, but for some reason, I couldn't take it out of my CD player. Almost 10 years later, I realize why. It is such a great album, probably in my top 20 of all time (along with Keep The Faith). Key moments on the album for me are 'These Days', just a great all-around song, with great lyrics, melody and both an amazing Richie Sambora guitar solo and a Jon Bon Jovi harmonica solo. 'Something To Believe In' also is a stand-out (I am very glad they included a live version on One Wild Night Live), I feel that the lyrics of the song are quite moving. It also sounds different than most other Bon Jovi songs.
I think that is why I like this album so much, you can see Bon Jovi 'experimenting' a little bit, even 'This Ain't A Love Song', a solid power ballad, has a bluesy feel to it. 'Diamond Ring' is a great closer (although I have the import disc with 'All I Want Is Everything' and 'Bitter Wine' as bonus tracks), very quiet and haunting even. The accompanying tour was one of the best rock shows I have ever seen. Almost 3 hours of pure rock n' roll, opening with 'Helter Skelter' and playing most of These Days.
I think it's a shame that the band does not play much off of this album live anymore (the played 'Damned' on the Bounce tour when it came to T.O. the first time) and largely ignores it in favour of the career-revamping Crush material.
If you are a Bon Jovi fan, These Days is a must own.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate "Grows On You" Album Dec 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
People are funny. Some love this album and some hate it, and more than a few hardcore fans just don't care about this one. First off, just to Keep Going at a time when quality rock music was under its greatest threat since disco (with the likes of shallowtallent Grunge giants) deserves a gold medal.
Although there are great arguments for why this is a great album (decent diversity, a few musical moments to shine, an "evolved" sound), even I almost lost the faith right around the "Always" era.
People only look at this album as opposed to the number one hit that came before it when judging it. "Always" was a less-musical version of megahiddengem "I Want You" from '92's masterpiece "Keep the Faith." Alas, it got all the attention, and as always in this industry, you gotta follow it up with something that makes sense (or alteast you think you should). But anyone that knows the principles of cause and effect knows that every stimulus brings consequences.
Hence a ballad-heavy album and softer singles (starting with "This Ain't A Love Song"). And a band in their mid thirties. I never thought this was a bad album, but most agree there was a magic, a fire, that previous efforts oozed, that this album just sort of sat on. The band was maturing, but in a bit of a worried way, just because the music they had just made 2 years ago was so good. And don't forget, it's possible the addition of Hugh could have been atleast a mild contributing factor to the change in group dynamics too. I love their ballads amazingly, but I smelled a change in chemistry at this time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite Peaceful Bon Jovi Dec 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
The album starts with good rock'n'roll: songs "Hey God", all-time classic "Something for the Pain", ballads "These Days", "This Ain't a Love Song", good rock'nroll again Dam*ed, and "Lie to Me" is also a good song. Other tracks are musically and some even lyrically bad songs. The level of the quality in the last songs is so bad that it is hard even to listen to. It's strange...after a great start. The music in the last tracks is too peaceful...
