- Regular hours. No more working until 1:30am. No more working for eleven hours straight. No more worked weekends or holidays (at least not while I work for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania).
- Putting in my two-weeks notice at my job of six-and-a-half years. This may have been the hardest thing I had to do in a long time. I went through like six drafts of it. I got teary-eyed on the drive home.
- Money money 2020.
So is it worth buying? Well, you're either a Bon Jovi fan or you aren't. We Bon Jovi fans like to be beaten over the head with our lyrics and our guitar riffs. If you fall into that category, this is about on-par with the previous three releases from the band, and you'll enjoy it. If you're not a lover of the B-J, pass on it. There's nothing revolutionary here that will change your mind.
If you're a country fan, this probably isn't the album for you. There are cameos by Big & Rich and Leann Rimes, but the first is unrecognizable underneath the song's electronics (yes, there is use of the vox-box in these songs), and the second could very well be any paid studio-singer.
I like it though.
