    I liked this album. And it maybe a little out of bound for Bon Jovi but it's not that bad. These days wasn;t good at al but with the coming of Crush and Bounce the music went up again. So a 9 is in order.

    Liked the CD even though I think it's they're worst one since they're first ever album. Someone tell Jon enough with the ballads already. I don't understand why they still fill they're albums with ballads when they're most successful songs recently haven't been ballads.

    Bon Jovi's Bounce us a great album. It has minor flaws, but it's still an awesome album from an awesome band. BJ's ballads lack in quality. I especially dislike Joey. Anyway, the album as a whole is cool and solid. I especially Undivided, Everyday, Hook Me Up, Misunderstood and Bounce. Richie's solos are not as good as they used to be, but they're OK. The band still clicks with harmony.

    A Great Album!!!!!!!!!!

    Half Hard Rock, Half Ballad Songs

    A Masterpiece Everyday,Undivided,Hook Me Up & Bounce are great Hard Rock Songs...

    A Masterpiece Joey, You Had Me From Hello, Love Me Back To Life, Misunderstood & All About Lovin' You

    & Rock songs like the Great "The Distance".

    Bon Jovi's best one-two album kickoff punch since Slippery When Wet's "Let it Rock" and "You Give Love a Bad Name." But unfortunately, it's downhill from there.

    Bounce may sound flat in a few years, but by then its job--to see another million people, and rock them all--will be done. [#11, p.128]
  3. In reality Bounce is the next chapter in an incredibly successful non-descript novel about love won and lost in times of turmoil, with plenty of songs that even a championship soccer team could sing.
