Almost every Bon Jovi album has hits included here, right up to The Circle. The song flow is excellent, hitting you with hit after hit after hit, landmark ballads sprinkled in between. And I give credit for the inclusion of "Blood On Blood", a song that was never a single but has been a huge concert favourite due to its real life story of JBJ's childhood. Not to mention it's just a great song.
The four new songs create feelings of moderate indifference to great dislike. "What Do You Got?" is another trademark Bon Jovi ballad, certainly nothing special, outshined to a great degree by all the other tunes here. Easily forgettable and feeling tacked-on as an afterthought. But two of these new songs -- "No Apologies" and "The More Things Change" are just awful songs. Cheesey, contrived, choose whatever words you like, they're juvenile and awful and really don't fit in among the classier hits.Read more ›
The single disc edition of Greatest Hits has 17 songs, including two new ones, while the double disc edition has 28 songs, including four new tracks. The first disc (which is the single edition of Greatest Hits) is the better one as it features classic. That doesn't mean disc two is bad, not at all, there are 12 songs on this disc and some good ones as well. I was surprised to see that Jon Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory was included; however there is no other solo material on this collection. It's unfortunate that Greatest Hits ignores two albums completely, 1985's 7800 Degrees Fahrenheit ("In and out of love" would've been the obvious choice) and 2002's Bounce ("Misunderstood" would have been a great selection), at least one song of each of those albums should have been included in order for it to be more complete.Read more ›
Good points. The sound was very well remastered. The vocal was very clean. The guitar riffs by Richie Sambora were very magical. The drum beat by Tico Torres was tight and quite exceptional. The entire set was very enjoyable. (Sound 5/5)
Bad points. It is a shame not to fill each disc with as many hits as possible (i.e., close to 80 minutes). There are 35 charted hit singles on Billboard Hot 100 from 1984 to now. There are only 19 charted songs included in this set. Fortunately, all the Top 10 hits are included here.
If you are a Bon Jovi fan, this 2-CD set is no brainer. Please buy the 2 CD set, which has much better value than the single disc set. If you are a casual fan, this 2-CD set will be a good collection for this fantastic band. I normally prefer to listen to studio versions, but in Bon Jovi's case, they are also a great "live" band. I would also recommend their recent blu ray release of "Live At Madison Square Garden" filmed in July 2008. It is really more exciting to see the boys in action, together with fantastic sound and beat. Bon Jovi is visiting Toronto on February 14, 2011...what a Valentine gift. The 2-CD set is highly recommended.
