Default BJ's debut album

What do you think of the debut album?

It doesn't get discussed very often but I think it's a good album. The songs all have a lot of energy and the music is quite intense and well played like it is on Slippery.. Roulette is the best song on it IMO.

I still think it's their best album so far. Like I have said time and time again.......when it was released it was something fresh, kinda standing out from the crowd so to speak. I have to admit, the production isn't by any means the best it could be, but still there's no cheesiness that came with SWW....songs, well yeah there are few fillers, but so is on every jovi album. Runaway blew me away when heard it for the first time, and it still sounds fresh. For me, a recording that survives the years without sounding outdated sure must be worth something

Overall, I do rate it as one of the best debut albums ever.

A little outdated, but not at all bad for a debut album. I like most songs in there. I remember being "shocked" when I heard Jon "criticising" She Don't Know Me because they hadn't written it and therefore wouldn't play it anymore. I like that song

Scary cover though

I like the debut too. I've always been annoyed that there were only 9 songs on it - there are a couple of good Power Station demos they could have used
My fave songs are Shot Through The Heart, Love Lies, Burning For Love and She Don't Know Me

I like Shot Through The Heart and She Don't Know Me. It's a shame that no-one really talks about it, it 's a really great debut and better than Bounce IMO

It was a decent debut. I people listen to it today and think that it isn't very good up to usual Bon Jovi standards but we should remember that this was out before the 'big' albums. It was a time where they were still trying to find the right sound for the band.
