Bon Jovi of old?

Just read this on the Q&A section of the Bon Jovi site:

you haven't been answering questions as often - must mean you're workin' hard! But don't work too hard.
Q: if you have to compare this new record (with what you have so far) which other record of BJ (or any artist!) would be similar? Give the fans out there a taster of the goods!

Stay killer :)

Big loud guitars riffs, much like the earlier albums.

No idea what he means by "earlier albums" because technically everything before now is "earlier". I have a feeling "big loud rock record" really means Bounce or Have a Nice Day, but I personally hope he means something resembling the work that was done from 1986 to 1995, i.e. the "big four" (Slippery When Wet, New Jersey, Keep the Faith, These Days). I don't want a clone of any previous album, but something more of that quality and less of trying to buy new fans at the expense of existing ones. Time will tell, of course.

Meanwhile, Jon Bon Jovi has recorded a "gospel-style" version of "Keep the Faith" for an upcoming compilation CD called Oh Happy Day. You can listen to a 30-second sample of it here.

EDIT: Full song can be listened to here.
