Overview

In the five years since his band's last album, Jon Bon Jovi has cut back on both hair spray and heavy metal antics, but his passion for larger-than-life rock anthems remains undiminished. And while he's now likely to drape those trademark lighter-igniters in sonic threads -- like the filter-distorted vocal on "Say It Isn't So" and the electronic intro to "It's My Life" -- that might strike longtime fans as a bit odd, there's nothing unfamiliar about the blend of yearning and optimism that peppers CRUSH's dozen tracks. Jon still can't keep himself from unleashing a scenery-chewing ballad or two ("Thank You" might be his cheesiest yet), but he balances that by revealing some previously unseen facets of his persona. On the shuffling "Two Story Town," he dons a Mellencamp-style cloak of populism, shaking his head at the foibles of the modern world, while "Older" finds him unapologetic about celebrating the extra candles on his birthday cake. Bon Jovi hasn't shed all of their old-school traits -- "The Next 100 Years" and "One Wild Night" could both, with a few tweaks, fit in on SLIPPERY WHEN WET -- but unlike most of their onetime contemporaries, the band sound perfectly comfortable living in the modern world.

This CD has a little of everything. For new fans it will school you on how great rock should sound! For long time fans of the band, you should really like what you hear! The band has multilayered tunes and display their many talents of musical & lyrical craftsmanship. Their are also songs that will surprise you - like ''Captain Crash & the Beauty Queen from Mars''! Only a talented matured band would create such a unique song and CD. You will find this one hard to put away - leaving a constant empty slot in your CD rack!

This album is worth the wait after 5 years. This is the new album released since 1995's ''THESE DAYS''. I only gave it a 4 because former bassist Alec John Such no longer works with Bon Jovi.

Whether you are a Bon Jovi FAN of old, or a new FAN - you'll not be disappointed by this one!! The band has improved their musician-ship and the songwriting is still among the best ever! This recording is HUGE around the world - all of you true rock n' roll enthusiasts of the 80', 90's, and today should pick this one up, if you haven't already! And the shows I have seen this year were INCREDIBLE!! If there was an option for a 6th star, Jon, Richie, and the boys should get it!

This new cd from BJ was just what I've been waiting for, as I'm sure other fans have as well. It sounds just like the old stuff. I'm so glad they made this cd. I definitely recommend it to anybody!! They are the best!!

This album is as good as it gets! Bon Jovi continues their streak of hit songs with the defiant 'it's my live', the Beatles Style "say it isn't so", a song just begging to be mixed with Aerosmiths "i don¿t want to miss a thing": "Thank you for loving me", The tribute to love and fun "Captain Crash", the love song to a child "I Got the Girl", the nostalgic look at their career with "Save the world" and "Just Older" as well as the Rock and Roll fast songs and ballads that we have grown to love. This album is a greatest hits collection of new songs. WAY TO GO!

I have been an advid fan of Bon Jovi since the 80s however, this latest CD did not depict the typical Wild Rocker. Jon is always speaking about expanding the groups horizons and going solo to bring more back to the table when the band reunites. Hopefully the next CD will expand on those horizons.

Bon Jovi's new album is a return to pop metal, and it's one of the best albums of the year. There is not a bad track on the album and it's good to see the bands of the 80's, such as Bon Jovi and others to make such wonderful music. This cd ROCKS!!!!

THE LATEST ALBUM;''CRUSH'' BY BON JOVI IS SIMPLY THE BEST AND THE VIDEO CLIP IS EVEN BETTER!

Another great rock album from Bon Jovi. The record has a lot of Bon Jovi's signature style of rock music balanced by a couple of soft rock songs. Great songs in Its My Life, Captain Crash, and Two Story Town. ALL FANS MUST BUY THIS!!!

All that you have read about Crush is true: this is the poppiest album that Bon Jovi has recorded. It's my life, Say it isn't so, Thank your for loving me, Captain Crash, Mystery Train, Next 100 years, Two story town are all POP songs what does it mean? That this, by far, the most accesible, lighter and "Beach boys-Summertime record" of Jon and his boys. That would be a shame if the songs weren't strong, but THEY ARE! They have great melodies, great hooks and are really funny. Crush won't be the most transcendental album of Bon Jovi (in fact, the only "serious" Bon Jovi albums are New jersey, Keep the faith and These days), but Crush is highly enjoyable.

I listen to this CD all day at work. Every song is a hit! ''Thank you for loving me'' has not only become one of my all time fave songs but it will be played as my wedding song next March.

Bon Jovi has given us another wonderful album. I absolutely loved every song on it, but they could play 'Mary Had A Little Lamb' and I'd still love it. I'd totally recomend this CD to anyone, it's just great.

Yes Bon Jovi did it again, they have put together an amazing cd. Crush has a little of everything, something for everyone. Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora once again show their amazing song writting talents. Jon and the guys sound better then ever.Crush is a cd that you will listen to more then once, I know i can't stop listening to it...That's how good it is. So if you haven't yet give Crush a chance, you won't be sorry.

Make no mistake, Bon Jovi are back, and they are at their best with this latest album! The album opens with the soon to be anthem it's my life, it has the feel of Slippery when wet brought up to the new millenium! My personal opinion is that this album sees Bon Jovi in a very upbeat and happy state of mind. Which in itself is a stark contrast to their last release These Days. I feel that if you enjoy the albums Slippery when wet, Keep the Faith and New Jersey, then this album is a must for you! If however you've only listened to the These Days album, then you are in for a big, pleasant suprise. What are you waiting for? Go out and buy it today!

The title is very powerful.Crush! There are so many emotions that has been discovered by the title itself. The songs are great, and they are very popular in Croatia.
