This cd is a really great start. With the song Runaway, they blew everybody away!!!It's impressionning that Jon wrote that without having any experience!We can feel that the band is a little hesitant with this record and I understand this very well, its their first and they don't know how the critics and the people are gonna react when they will hear their new materials. Songs like Shot Trough The Heart, Runaway, Roulette are just great and I think if it wasn't of those songs, there would be no Bon Jovi today!They started the hole thing. Powerfull lyrics even at such a young age and catchy melodies can't be an error. And 'Bon Jovi' is just the beggining of a never ending story....
