First, let me get something off my chest about the album...

I looked at ticket prices last night for his new album tour to the Honda Center and Staples Center. Nose bleed ticket prices were $150 and $120 respectively a couple days ago. So Jon, when you and Richie write songs like "Work For The Working Man" and you sing about dreams, hopes, and essentially the hard honest work many people do how is it you charge so much for seats so far away? That's saying nothing of the seats closer. I've loved your music since I found a cassette tape (7800 Fahrenheit) at camp when I was a kid. I've never been able to see you and before you start to decline vocally which is inevitable I'd like to see you at least once.

Ok, now about the album...

There are good songs on this album but there will be nothing that really jumps out at you. Work For The Working Man to me, took as close of a step back to the 80s with Jon's old bluesy rock songs. He does prove he has vocal strength in a number of the songs but the songs are certainly softer than the 80s. That being said, it's not the 80s anymore folks and Jon isn't 20-something anymore.

"We Weren't Born To Follow" is an upbeat song that I like because it really raises your spirits. In our current time, there's a lot to balk about in the news and politics. While Jon certainly sings about how things are now he does inject something upbeat and positive into the album with this song.

I'm not really certain I can classify "Superman Tonight" as a ballad but for anyone that's been in love it's a song we can all identify with. It most certainly is a song that after one day of owning the album I find myself singing along to.

"Bullet" is a grittier sounding song.

I have every album that Bon Jovi ever made and I always get them the day that they come out as I keep up with their music. This is not their best work at all. It is kind of a downer. I work and go to school and don't need to hear music about working or how hard things are, I live it. Also, "We weren't born to follow" is really the only good song on it. I hate to say that but this is just not good. I have seen them twice live and the best albums were Slippery When Wet and New Jersey. Bounce and Have a Nice Day were awesome recent works then downhill from there.

Bon Jovi is one of those bands that were at their peak in the `80s and are still managing to release platinum-certified albums some twenty years later. But that luck also comes with a price: people will listen to their newer stuff and then get mad because it doesn't sound like their older stuff. This is something negative reviewers don't seem to understand: Bon Jovi is not going to make another Slippery When Wet, nor should you expect them to. That was in the past; leave it there. Anyway, now it's time for the band's latest offering, The Circle.

I don't think "We Weren't Born to Follow" is a bad song, but there are better songs than that, especially the next two singles: "When We Were Beautiful" and "Superman Tonight". And "Fast Cars" (which sounds a little like Matchbox Twenty's "If You're Gone") is passable. That's about it, though, because the rest of the songs don't really sound a whole lot different from each other, and keep-your-head-up songs like "Learn to Love" and "Work for the Working Man" don't exactly have the most innovative lyrics.

You can still tell The Circle is a Bon Jovi album, and it's nice to listen to, but there really isn't anything mind-blowing here. B.I.F.

Bon Jovi delivers in this release from 2009 titled - The Circle. Well arranged and certainly well written music. "Love's the Only Rule," certainly comprised of such caliber to make any long-time Bon Jovi listener quite proud of how the band has maintained their unique and tantalizing sound while growing and maturing before our very eyes. It should always have been about the songs (not the length of the lead singer's hair, as Jon would be gorgeous even with a shaven head), and this compilation of songs proves just that - this band rocks - and why? Well, because they can! It is evident that much time and effort is taken to craft their music and furthermore, the creativity, passion and dedication Jon utilizes to produce and approve merchandising and promotional materials for an album release point clearly to the fact that Jon and the band not only value their fans and listeners, but also actually respect them (us). Thank you to the Brotherhood for the The Circle - a Bon Jovi release that brings home the best of why Bon Jovi is still rockin' millions of faces around this globe - and at the top of their game (last 3 tours announced as Billboard's top grossing world tours) - thirty years, and the original Jersey boys still very much - "...got it goin' on!"
