    I must admit a guilty pleasure in actually liking the few tunes that Bon Jovi has penned in the past which fall in the area code of country-rock, so a new album comprised entirely of such offerings is fine by me. At least he's moved on from the poseur and vapid Cock Rock which made him famous and into other realms. This shows balls, if not some naivete.

It's a meaningful attempt to branch out with his talent and broaden his appeal, and you can't fault the guy for the attempt. Now if he can only get Richie Sambora's attentions away from the latest Bimbo of the Month and on to his acoustic guitar, then he might really be on to something. Expand

  1. 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.
  2. Lost Highway isn't "Bon Jovi goes country" so much as a meaningful tribute to the Nashville ethos done on their own terms.

    This is an exciting new chapter for Bon Jovi. [23 Jun 2007]
