  1. Bon Jovi are at their best when delivering the country-tinged ballads.
  2. Lost Highway isn't "Bon Jovi goes country" so much as a meaningful tribute to the Nashville ethos done on their own terms.
  3. This is an exciting new chapter for Bon Jovi. [23 Jun 2007]
  4. Overall, as safe as Highway might be, there's no way long-time fans won't buy it.
  5. Lost Highway recalls nothing so much as a latter-day Bon Jovi record in how it balances fist-pumping arena anthems with heavy doses of sentiment.
  6. Lost Highway moves in on Nashville as shrewdly as "It's My Life" skimmed Stockholm seven years ago. [28 Jun 2007, p.71]
  7. The band does little more than take the easiest trappings of country and plug them in.

    Rock ain't about playing loud, rock MUSIC is about playing music, doing it softer sometimes, blending with different horizons. And Bon Rock ain't about playing loud, rock MUSIC is about playing music, doing it softer sometimes, blending with different horizons. And Bon Jovi did it and still sounding like Bon Jovi. Ain't that amazing, I think a lot of newcomers (and one hit wonders most of them) are jealous of this band. Expand

    Lost Highway is a nice country album, I love it. With Lost Highway, Bon Jovi proves the fact that they don't have to be loud to be good. TheirLost Highway is a nice country album, I love it. With Lost Highway, Bon Jovi proves the fact that they don't have to be loud to be good. Their lyrics are, as usual, awesome. (You Want To) Make a Memory is, for a single, dissapointing, but the rest of the album is pretty cool. The title track is quite cool. We Got It Going On and I Love This Town are the best songs of the album. Their awesome solos are "fading away" but they still make awesome music. Great album. Greater band. Expand

    If 80's Bon Jovi time traveled to 2007, they would kick new Bon Jovi's ass. That's all I can really say.
