I am a huge Bon Jovi fan and was eagerly anticipating this album as I had been very disappointed in their previous album Lost Highway (with the exception of the title track which was a reasonably good song). The Circle is their 11th studio album and claims to be their return to what they know best, good old fashioned rock and roll...unfortunately I beg to differ. The first single from the album, "We Weren't Born To Follow" was a reasonable attempt at this comeback, however every time I listened to it, it strongly reminded me of their 1990 hit Born to Be My Baby. It sounded like a band running out of ideas to me and upon listening to the ... Read the complete review

After playing a nearly 100 date tour in support of 2007's Lost Highway album Bon Jovi had planned to take some time off for a well deserved rest. There was to be a greatest hits album and a live DVD but no new album from the guys. However when Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora got together to record a couple of new songs for the greatest hits record they found that the world's current economic and political climate inspired them to write enough songs for an entire album and so The Circle was born. Prior to its release Bon Jovi described The Circle as "uplifting" and a "big rock n roll record" after the country influences of Lost Highway and ... Read the complete review

I'm just gobsmacked to see all the five star reviews on here for this album! There's a reason that most stores are now selling this for only £5.99 - and it's a rip-off at even that price. Bon Jovi have basically created this album by reworking riffs and melodies that they've used on previous albums. It particularly strikes me as being very reminiscent of their album Crush. I don't think there is a single original song on here! It gets going with 'We Weren't Born to Follow' which is a bit like their previous hits 'Saturday Night' and 'It's My Life' and to be honest, any other 'we're rebels without causes' songs they've ever written. Sure it's ... Read the complete review

There are not many bands or artists that ever reach their 11th studio album. Likewise, few ever last 25+ years in the business.. and even fewer can still manage to sell out stadiums worldwide after all of that. Bon Jovi are one such band, still going strong and still producing fantastic albums like this one - The Circle. The first track & lead single (We Weren't Born To Follow) is an excellent introduction to the album as whole with a catchy sing a long chorus and great riffs. To keep you on your toes, the pace immiediately slows with the very next song. When We Were Beautiful is is powerful number which gradually builds. This song also provides the title to the book Read the complete review

After the carefree Have a Nice Day and the Country inspired Lost Highway, Bon Jovi return to the fold with The Circle; an album which combines the best of the previous two to create a fantastic set of tracks which have everything one could expect of a Bon Jovi record. When We Were Beautiful is a beautifully subtle track, and while it isn't a typical Bon Jovi ballad its cutting edge is perhaps typical of the rest of the album - something which has perhaps been missing from the previous two records. The album really is what you decide to make of it; for one I thoroughly enjoyed The Circle and hope it can reignite Bon Jovi in the future years to ... Read the complete review

Lost Highway - Bon Jovi - A great new sound and approach from simply one of the best bands of our time! None- could this get any better? Okay, a couple of tracks might sound better live but still.....
Nordland Vol.2 - Bathory - Final masterpiece of unrelenting Viking metal, less showy and more atmospheric. Some songs are waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long.
Dark Ages - Soulfly - max calavera, marc rizzo, i and i, babylon, fuel the hate, amazing band and best album nothing.
Ruin - Architects - Excellent pummeling metal which wont dissapoint Needs more song diversity
Hollow Crown - Architects - Brutal, Aggressive, Very technical Not for everyone, it is very heavy
Son Of The Morning - Sleeper Oh - Great lyrics, more diversity Some of the songs are too predictable with the classic clean vocals followed by screaming

|11 - Bryan Adams|
Some excellent rock ballads are present on this album. Powerful vocals throughout.
Bryan Adams has recorded better albums than this.
|Acoustic Ko - Iggy Pop||Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire - Soundtrack|
Great, heraldic and melodic music from start to finish
Maybe too overbearing at times; discredits older themes; "Not by John Williams"; Stupid songs

Sleep on it
|Chris Brown - Chris Brown|
Loveable and good songs
The album is very limited
|Defending The Throne Of Evil - Carpathian Forest|
Less convincing as a result.
|Projector - Dark Tranquillity|
Bold and successful change of direction (if temporary).
Very little to appeal to long-time fans.

Catchy songs, every song could be a single
The Killers' excesses pale in comparison to some of the songs here
