What does a wildly successful purveyor of ‘80s big hair power ballads do in an ensuing decade dominated by fervent shoe-gazing and other attendant alt.cliches? If you’re Jon Bon Jovi, you scale back your band’s ambitions, retool yourself as surprisingly accomplished indie film and TV actor, and (mostly) wait for the pop music tides to turn in your favor again. But JBJ and guitarist/collaborator Richie Sambora didn’t let their band’s lukewarm ‘90s fortunes dampen their knack for hook-savvy songcraft, as this muscular anthem-fest argues at virtually every turn. BJ’s songs here may be as infectious as ever, yet they’re seldom mere confections, often infused with alternating doses of bracing cynicism (the title track’s sarcastic riposte to the ’04 election) and reflective, often bittersweet takes on histories both personal and otherwise. If it sometimes stoops to formula--the droning, metallic ethos of the obligatory big ballad "I Am" can’t overcome some equally perfunctory lyrics–it’s also an album with its share of warm surprises, be they unexpected nods to Dylan ("Last Man Standing," the acoustic idealism of "Bells of Freedom"), the hard-edged "I Want to Live" or a winning duet with Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, "Who Says You Can’t Go Home." Bon Jovi may deliver a sonically burnished triumph here by largely going back to the future--yet does it with one ear crucially cocked towards the anxious energy of the recent past. -- Jerry McCulley

Love them or hate them, throughout Bon Jovi's career this band has been very consistent in keeping their core sound while slightly embellishing it with different colors and styles to keep the band 'relevant' as the music scene changed over time. The way I look at it, you can evenly divide these guys catalog into 5 different eras:

"Bon Jovi" and "7800 Farenheit" -

The beginning of their career. At times struggling to find their own sound but showing signs of potential through what was mostly weak songwriting...these albums did have some high points but they were few and far between.

"Slippery when Wet" and "New Jersey" -

Their rise to superstardom. Yeah they were lumped in with the hair band scene (and why not? Big hair, Power Ballads) but never really sounded like any of the bands from that era. Both of these albums are landmarks of the 80's and the songwriting was so strong you couldn't deny their talent.

"Keep the Faith" and "These Days" -

Their break into the 90's music scene. Same core sound used for Slippery and NJ...but changed ever so slightly to appeal to a broader audience. "Faith" showed the band could still write irrisistable hooks and excel at many different styles of music while "These Days" showed a darker more somber side of the band, yet the songs remained memorable.

"Crush" and "Bounce" -

Their attempt to stay on top in the new millenium. "Crush" showed the band at their most mature and introspective...again, same core sound...yet modernized with new age production and more variation in the instrumentation of the song arrangements...and, once again, strong and memorable songs.

Other than greatest hits this is the first Bon Jovi CD I have ever purchased. I love their sound and their songs but have never thought they were strong enough to produce an good CD. I was wrong. Since I don't carry any baggage for this band perhaps my view was different than some others. I don't care who wrote the songs or played guitor or piano. It was just good, fun music. My 14 and 12 year old sons liked it as well. The lyrics are that of a thoughtful man who has been around the world and is still having fun although there is some reflection. The music is just good straight forward rock. It isn't alternative, heavy metal or new age - just what you have come to expect from Bon Jovi. Rock on!

I loved Bon Jovi as a teenager, and now I have teenage daughters who love Bon Jovi too. It's amazing that a band can stretch across generations. Bon Jovi is Bon Jovi. If you are expecting something else, don't buy this cd, but if you are a true Bon Jovi fan, you won't be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this Album, but I recommend that you buy the LIMITED EDITION DUAL DISC DIGI-PAK version, because it contains the music video for "Have A Nice Day", special Bon Jovi interviews, and footage of a live performance that the band gave in 2004.

I often find with bon jovi that, if you give them a chance, and listen to their albums several times, you begin to feel differently about the album.

When I first heard "Have A Nice Day" I felt like "Well, it was good, but not great".

But then, the more I listened to it, the more I enjoyed it and the more I realized that it was indeed a great album.

I especially love the songs "I Am", "Bells Of Freedom","Have A Nice Day" and "Last Man Standing".

This is a summary of the songs on this Album:

1. "Have A Nice Day"-

To me, this is a great sequel to the song "Everyday", from Bon Jovi's "Bounce" album.

It's about living YOUR life, not the one others tell you to live. Spread your wings and fly. When the world tries to tell you what to do, or gives you a hard time, say "Have A Nice Day" (which is the equivalent of giving someone the middle finger...only in a more polite way) and go about your life. Great message!

2. "I Want To Be Loved"-

This is a catchy tune that I think many fans will enjoy.

3. "Welcome To Wherever You Are"-

This is a nice song,a slower song about trying to accept what life deals you....dont fight it, learn from it and grow from it.

"You're exactly where you're supposed to be".

4. "Who Says You Cant Go Home"-

Currently this song is very popular...

Bon Jovi released their first album in 1984 but it was until their legendary third album, "Slippery When Wet", that they really experienced creative and (major) commercial success. From that point right through to Jon Bon Jovi's fantastic second solo album in '97 the band, as individuals and as a group, continued to grow and evolve as artist, musicians and songwriters and always took the band into new areas and always trying ever more ambitious endeavours. Something strange happened with the bands massively successful "comeback" album "Crush" in 2000. The forward evolution stopped dead in it's tracks. Bon Jovi went from a band that created powerful, socially conscious, ambitious and deep music to a fairly middle of the road pop-rock group. Now Crush had it's moments but it wasn't a true rock record. With 2002's "Bounce" the band tried to get back to a proper rocking sound and to some extent they succeeded, and it is a good album but untimately the album along with Crush only highligted how far they had fallen from the hights of the previous decade. Reasons for this, complacency? Perhaps. A poor producer? Most probably, but what would "Have a Nice Day" bring? More of the same or would Bon Jovi return to producing the rock music they are capable of? Thankfully, I'm very happy to say that thanks to a unstopable drive to return to the top of the rock scene and employing the services of the world hottest producer John Shanks, the band have produced what is undoubtedly their best album.

TRACK BY TRACK:

The album opens with the first single, HAVE A NICE DAY. This is viciously pulsating rock anthem, that right off the bat tells us Bon Jovi are backing rocking bettter then ever.
