"I was browsing the music section of a store in October and under the Bon Jovi listing, I happened upon this tribute album. I had never heard of this before, and being the rabid fan that I am, as well as having an appreciation for classical music, I decided to pick it up. I wasn't really sure what to expect from it, as Jon Bon Jovi's voice can not be substituted by anything. With that being said, I was blown away by this album. While it is true that some songs (Bed of Roses, Always, I'll Be There for You) would naturally translate into the smooth flowing music created by a string quartet, the tracks originally sounding harder (It's My Life, Everyday, Lay Your Hands On Me) take on a flavor all their own. If you have never listened to Bon Jovi before (shame on you two or three people), I advise you to listen to the original songs, then see how well they have translated into this form. For the rest of us, who already know how many faces have been seen and all of us who have been rocked, get this disc while it lasts."

"As a huge fan of Bon Jovi, I was mistaken in thinking this had anything to do with the group as opposed to the group writing these songs at one time - It's as if a string quartet of some pretty good musicians recorded Jovi's songs with a fiddle as Jon's voice - I'm sorry, but I should have done without."
