So, his vocals were bad in the 80's? And are bad right now? Right...I don't think so!

No one said Bad.

I believe they were great until 96. And then they somehow became great again in the European leg this tour.

Thought I’d do a little search rather than a new topic

Apart from These Days, this genuinely is the album I listen to most. Raw. Heavy in places. Dark. It’s a great listen and I’m unapologetic about loving it so much.

Richie made a crack about this album when he was on The Masked Singer. Didn't sound like he liked it too much at all. I like it and I also like These Days.

Good songs, nice riffs, but absolutely hating the production style of it.

For me, 7800º was the worst of their first 6 albums, but I've always put it ahead of post-2000 albums. After 2000, it was such a different band.. I like the things they did after, but the album concept (with powerful voices and guitars) was not there anymore.


I never understood why Jon in the early 2000s called coasters to 7800 Fahrenheit. It's true that the sound of it aged badly and feels outdated, but it had some great songs on it.


In & Out Of Love kicks ass.

It sounds a ton like early 80s rock stuff. Dave Bickler-era Survivor come to mind especially. If you are not into that kinda sound, it's probably not very enjoyable. I certainly dig it, especially considering how much the band tries to downplay its qualities. It was a pleasant surprise; I love The Hardest Part Is The Night.

That being said... I prefer it over the debut, but it's not better than any of the other '80s albums the band did.

This was the first Bon Jovi studio album I listened to. I had Cross Road, which got me into the band and went to HMV to buy an album. Chose this for no other reason than a lack of knowledge. Took it home and that night listened to it on repeat all night, didn't sleep a wink.

I loved it so much it confirmed the fandom I was growing from Cross Road. I went back to HMV over the next few days and bought the rest, which at that point was Bon Jovi to These Days. Smashed the living shit out of those CDs for the next however many months, not really listening to anything else. That sort of obsessive committment to something young people have and that I miss now I am older.

As for this album, I love the songs, the playing, the arrangements, and Jon's voice. The production takes a lot away from it though, but does make it the most unique-sounding Bon Jovi record.

i actually think the shitty production gives the album its charm. When I picked this album up when I was 14 I had no idea what production was and still loved it instantly.
