Bon Jovi’s “The Circle” Reviewed By Todd Leibowitz

Bon Jovi’s The Circle or if Amazon can rename albums, “The $3.99 Album”

Well, I can honestly say that I wasn’t going to purchase this album just because I think Bon Jovi should give it a rest for a while. I felt that they over-stayed their welcome. It seems every year, they are either release an album or go on tour. Enough is enough. Take 5 years off and start fresh. But since it was only $3.99 (this week only at Amazon.com), I said what the hell, give it a shot.

So what do I think of it?????

I think it is really really good actually. Worth the $3.99, but if I had to I would pay the $11.99 from ITunes, I would. Bon Jovi went back to their pop metal roots on The Circle. I can see most of these tunes be great arena anthems. Even the ballads are good and pick up speed. Most of the songs sound like they could be songs left off classic albums like Slippery When Wet and New Jersey.

They talk about the economy, they talk about a father talking to his son, and they talk about living hard times. Even though these Bon Jovi boys are not living hard times, they are recording songs that the everyday Joe can relate too.

I really enjoyed listening to this album the first time around – which is a rare since it takes a couple of listens to like an album. In fact, as I am typing this, I have the album playing on the iPod.

Well done boys!
