Review of "New Jersey - Bon Jovi"
This is the third Bon Jovi album that I have bought, following my purchases of 'Crossroad' and 'Keep The Faith' and I honestly believe this to be the best. Not to say that the others are not good, in fact they are great, but I believe this to be quite incredible.I've really lost count of the number of people that i've seen completely discard Bon Jovi because they are classed as 'hair metal' which instantly seems to put off alot of people. For me, music isn't about the image, it is believe it or not, about the MUSIC.
The reason that I would pick this over 'Crossroad' is simply because there are a couple of glaring omissions from the greatest hits, both of which are found on 'New Jersey'.
Those omissions are 'Born To Be My Baby', which is my all-time favourite Bon Jovi song, and 'Blood on Blood' which I believe to be another great.
Wild Is The Wind
Ride Cowboy Ride
Stick To Your Guns
After these three songs the flow completely changes again as we arrive at 'I'll Be There For You', a fantastic ballad that could easily bring a tear to the eye. That is followed by '99 In The Shade', which is another stadia rock effort that makes you feel like you really are listening to Bon Jovi at their best. The variation offered throughout the record is very welcome but deep down inside Bon Jovi at their best is when they are pumping out stonking rock tunes that would grace any arena in the world.Tracklisting

All in all, if you are a Bon Jovi fan, then you probably already own this. If you aren't and you are looking for a good classic rock album, then you could do much worse than purchase a copy of 'New Jersey'Thanks for reading
