The Circle is the eleventh studio album by American rock band Bon Jovi. The Circle takes the band back to the rock roots after their prior Nashville country music influenced album Lost Highway. The Circle was inspired by the economic meltdown and political turmoil around the world. The Circle debuted at the number-one position on the U.S. Billboard 200. Continuing with its vinyl reissue campaign UMe will be pressing this album on vinyl (180 gram) for the first time.
