Over four weeks ago, it came as a huge surprise when Bon Jovi announced that a new album was in the works. But to be honest it isn’t that “new”, because “Burning Bridges” consists mainly of songs that were originally written for older albums. It’s not a collection of demos, because the tracks were recorded a few months ago, so this LP is supposed to be a “fan album” to fill the gap until a brand new record is released in 2016. It also marks the first record in Bon Jovi history without Richie Sambora on guitars (which makes it to a Jon Bon Jovi solo record in my opinion, but later more on that). The big question is: can this album shine, where its predecessor failed?

For the most part the second half of the album doesn’t bring as many fresh ideas as the first half, and is mostly very mellow, with just the occasional burst of heaviness. The two exceptions are “Sands Of Gold”, which is probably the heaviest, most complicated and definitely the most explosive song on the album, and the title track which starts off slow but quickly picks up momentum and delivers a very epic and fast-paced chorus, with maybe some subtle power metal elements
