One of the few lineups to make the leap from 1980s "hair band" into long-term semi-respectability, Bon Jovi's eighth studio album is somewhat true to the band's pop-metal roots, though Bounce is ultimately mellower and more theatrical than previous outings. "Undivided" might be a Tom Waits number, all gravelly vocals and booming drums hinting at a dark hipness before kicking into a commercial, lush chorus. Still, it's got a pleasing edginess, as does the toe-tapping, mechanized feel of "Everyday." Jon Bon Jovi's forays into film have clearly influenced Bounce. "You Had Me from Hello," the title nicked from Jerry Maguire, is spare, poignant, and gentle, while "The Right Side of Wrong" references Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and has a piano-heavy Springsteen-meets-Billy Joel feel. Typical ballads like "Joey" and "All About Loving You" also populate the album, which often feels like a singer-songwriter outing, or a movie soundtrack, rather than an album by a veteran rock band. Some of Bounce's bouncier tunes may still appeal to the now-middle-aged fans of the band's "Livin' on a Prayer" era, while the melodrama marking much of the album might lose those who prefer headbanging over Bon Jovi's more mellow and grandiose musical musings. --Katherine Turman

First of all, if you don't own Bounce then order it NOW. And if you don't have Blaze of Glory then get that too and go read my review of that also, unless you consider yourself Jovi proficient.
Ok, now that Bounce is on the way to your house (for those of you who had previously contributed to the industry trend in declining record sales), let me tell you what to be ready for.
I wish one could rate halves. This album really is 4.5 stars.
First of all, the album is much better and less bland than Crush. It is also better than many of their albums, all of course which are are great anyway. As the self-proclaimed number one fan of Bon Jovi's MUSIC, I still say it doesn't have the musical aspirations of New Jersey and Keep the Faith, and although the songs may be better intended, it doesn't have the "classic-ness" of Slippery.
Bounce does, however, pack a punch. Always playing the game perfectly between musicality and commercialism, Bounce is almost a little TOO perfect, in terms of being the IDEAL modern day offspring of Slippery When Wet. Unfortunately, there's something about "modern day" that necessitates a decline in timelessness (9/11 inspirations not-withstanding). That said, Bounce doesn't sound dated, and they don't betray the roots that got them to where they are either. They don't use too much of 'the formula' so all they churn out is a stale throwback, but all will agree that this is a BON JOVI album, if there ever was any. So at the same time, they are not selling out and using all of the modern blips and bloops in the studio just to be accepted in the current day. The band cared about making viable music here, as they always do.
Which means, the "formula" to make Bounce is perfect.

A good CD. The songs that are VERY good are near great... those that aren't upper echelon keep this from being a 5 "*" effort. Definitely worth a listen, though, especially for Bon Jovi loyalists (like myself).
Best Tracks (no particular order):
* Undivided
* Everyday
* Misunderstood
* Bounce
Bottom Line: Buy it! It's worth a listen!

This album is awesome! It's a good old fashioned American rock and roll album. The first song on the album is "Undivided". It is a beautiful song that could very well pass for America's new National anthem following the terrorist attacks. It talks about how we have all become United, as one, and that we stand for love, and truth, as we pray to God for his help. Try NOT to sing along with "Undivided", you wont succeed though.
The second track is "Everyday". This is a cool, clean sounding song that reminds us to make the most of "Everyday". To dream, and to spread our wings and fly to accomplish those
dreams.
Track number 3 is "The Distance". It is about how when you love somebody, NOTHING can or will stop you from being with them. That you will do whatever it takes to be with them, even if it means "going the Distance".
Track 4 is "Joey" and is about someone changing their life, and making it better, even though it is sometimes scary to do so.
Next, is the song "Misunderstood". It talks about how, in relationships, or life in general, that when someone gets mad at us, we shouldnt be too upset about it, because they just misunderstood us, because we had good intentions in doing what upset them in the first place.
Track number 6 is "All about lovin' you". This title says it all. It talks about dedicating our lives to those who we love.
Song number 7 is "Hook me up". It is about a young man who is seperated from the rest of the world, and reaches out to be part of it, and that whether you live in America, or in Afghanistan, we are all Brothers, who all have the same need....to be loved.
Song #8 is "The right side of wrong". This is a great song that has the feeling of Bon Jovi's classic "cowboy" mentality.
Song #9 is "Love me back to life".

This CD, like "Crush", establishes Bon Jovi as long-term rockers.
It is seemingly more mature in content than their 80s material, but still rocks. Great vocals, guitar work, ala Richie Sambora, keyboards, bass, and percussion are evident. Bon Jovi and Sambora still provide one of the best vocal duos around. Tracks such as "Undivided", "Hook Me Up", and "Bounce" really rock and there is a good mix of ballad/acoustic stuff to make this one a fine CD. Turn it up whether you are 16 or 46. Highly recommended!

Well its been two years since CRUSH came out. Two years waiting to see what would Bon Jovi do next?? Well, the wait is over and its been worth it.
Bon Jovi show a more mature attitude to their music. This is not surprising as they claim that the songs are influenced by the events of 11 september 2001.
But this is NOT a 11/9 album! No way! The only song that is related to the events is UNDIVIDED. The rest are mainly about looking to the future and bouncing back.
Here are my recommended tracks:
JOEY (Track Four) is a personal favourite. A beautiful song with an important theme "Hey Joey what are you going to do with your life?" says it all really. You hear Richies undereated voice talent and David is just beautiful on the keyboard.
UNDIVIDED (Track One) Oh yeah I cant complain about this one. Its very heavy on the drums and guitar (more of metal attitude than a rock attitude). Definetly worth a listen!!!!!!!
BOUNCE (Track Eleven) The title says it all- reminds me of ITS MY LIFE. A good tune with meaning- a good pick-me-up.
EVERYDAY (Track Two)- the latest single. Similar to BOUNCE and ITS MY LIFE but still a good tune
Buy it and rock on!!!!...
