  • When Jon Bon Jovi went into the studio to record his band's seventh studio album, he went from budding actor to Jersey rocker to remind the world where his bread-and-butter was. After the initial plan to team up hard-rock production gods Bob Rock and Bruce Fairbairn fell through due to the latter's death, an audition process was set up with alt-rock engineer Luke Ebbin (Splender) winning the job. The choice was a fortuitous one as here Bon Jovi updates its sound with a smattering of loops and impressive arrangements, without losing the pop crunch of its heyday.
  • Along the way, Bon Jovi tips its collective hat to the teen brigade invading the charts and the glory days of "Livin' On a Prayer" (the talk-box laden, Max Martin co-written single "It's My Life"), while still writing songs about blue-collar characters full of optimism (the Springsteen-flavored "Two Story Town"). CRUSH also contains the requisite power ballads for Bon Jovi's starry-eyed female fans ("Thank You for Loving Me," "Save the World") along with glam (the Elton John-inspired "Captain Crash & The Beauty Queen From Mars") and grimy ("One Wild Night") rockers.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (7/20/00, p.142) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Jon does a fine job of shaking his Bon-Bon to the blow-dried, rockish tunes...especially...'It's My Life' which sounds like a Britney track shot through the heart with Ritchie Sambora's voice-box guitar..."

Entertainment Weekly (6/16/00, p.90) - "...CRUSH - for all its sappy ballads and suburban pop fairy tales - is classic Bon Jovi. And that's not an oxymoron." - Rating: B'
