First of all, hats off to Bon Jovi for trying something different with This Left Feels Right--a selective collection of their most popular songs with a twist. That twist isn't a purely acoustic reworking, MTV unplugged style--anybody looking for that experience will be sorely disappointed by what's on offer. What Bon Jovi have done is re-record these songs in a completely different way while maintaining the original lyrics, melody and song structure. What's different then? Well, quite a bit actually. Check out the almost trip-hop beat and distorted vocal of "Wanted Dead or Alive", or the lazy soul of "Livin' on a Prayer". "It's My Life" is a beautiful piano-only standout, almost worth having the whole album for.

The tracklisting isn't perfect, concentrating largely on their 1980s period (there's nothing from These Days, for instance). As such, the venture works as an effective cheese-extraction exercise, keeping the elements that made the originals so great, but removing shouty, hairspray-fuelled "whoa-yeahs". What we get is something that is closer to Jon Bon Jovi's last solo offering--the criminally underrated Destination Anyway. It doesn't always work ("Bed of Roses" just sounds like a warbling cover of the powerful original and by the time they reach "Always" it's obvious they've run out of new twists), and no doubt there will be legions of bemulleted faithfuls who will denounce this as blasphemy of the highest order. Sure, it's probably just record-company filler, but it's a worthwhile investment and you won't be embarrassed to have it on when your mates come round. --Cortman Virtue

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected Aug. 18 2010
Format:Audio CD
It wasn't what I was expecting. I bought it because it was the most current "greatest hits" CD. It's sort of a mellow version of the songs, though. Which I didn't realize initially. I am still listening to it (despite being disappointed initially), and it's growing on me somewhat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bon Jovi Comes Of Age... Aug. 12 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've been a musician all my life and a Bon Jovi fan for the almost twenty-five years of the band's life. This Left Feels Right is an outstanding culmination of Jon, Ritchie and the band's work. What they have done here is far more rewarding than a collection of old hits with a new tune tossed in. If you are a real Bon Jovi fan and are not afraid of awesome new takes on old songs, you will love this CD. Look for the live concert DVD version of this... it is fantastic. Great work guys.

I just can't into this album and why would you ruin classic songs by going acoustic? Just tell me. Where is the logic in releasing an unplugged greatest hits album? Can you imagine Metallica or Gun N' Roses released an acoustic greatest hits package. I think not. Classic songs stripped down and unplugged just doesn't make the grade for me.

Bon Jovi is one of the best metal bands of all-time but this album is absolutely the worst album from Bon Jovi.

Avoid this album!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bon Jovi Muzac June 5 2005

Format:Audio CD
Loyal fans stay away! This greatest hits version will only be heard in elevators.
I bought the Super Audio version and was expecting a treat when I got home.
At first when I heard Dead or alive I had to check my system settings to see if something was turned off.
When Liv'in on a player started I was litterly liv'in on a player that all these great hits were not of the same watered down acoustics. I was wrong. I had to play the originals just to dump the crap I had just got suckered into.
After Ally McBeal, and now this, Jon Bon Jovi has lost his way.
O'well one for the Ebay pile.

1.0 out of 5 stars My ears are bleeding! July 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If there were a selection for "0" stars, I would definitely have rated it with that. This is absolutely the WORST rendition of any of these songs, ever. As a Bon Jovi fan for years, I am completely appalled by this fatal monstrosity they call "Greatest Hits With a Twist". The vocals on this album can easily be likened to those of a drunken hobo. Truly tragic, and highly NOT recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great twist on great hits! July 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a great change to the classic songs. I love the new sounds and the easy going style. two or three of the songs I'm not all that crazy about and prefer the original. But I think if you like "Prayer '94" from the Crossroads cd, you'll like this one. A good change.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who approved this record???? July 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Bon Jovi released a new album on Tuesday. It's called "This Left Feels Right". For those of you not in the know, it is made up of some of their older songs, pretty much hits, but re-made. mostly acoustic and stripped down and built back up.
Now, there is precident for this. The Cure did "Mixed Up" - taking some of their songs and remixing them, Euro-Club style. Bush did it with Deconstruction, some guy came in and made their bigger songs techno. Some bands just opt to do something different, for artistic liberties. Look at the new Aerosmith record that has been in the works - supposed to be a straight blues record. And then some bands are just looking to change their sound. Now, I can appreciate all of these things. And even if they don't work, the band tried, that is what art is about. Take all of this from the guy who grew up wearing out his copy of Hysteria, but felt that Slang was the best album Def Leppard ever wrote... Also realize that I appreciate new takes on old material. Acoustic guitars playing Pour Some Sugar on Me worked well.
trainwreck. at some point, someone thought it was a good idea. I am amazed it saw record stores shelves. i am having trouble finding redeeming qualities here. I read the reviews on amazon before listening, but didn't want to believe. how could it be that bad....
1. dead or alive. i heard that this was the one track people liked. i wonder what cd they were listening to, because it couldn't have been this one. has this really annoying bass-like thump to it that WON"T STOP! and 2 or 3 times it has a glimpse of full on rock - for about a bar's worth of music, then cuts out as abruptly as it came in.
