I also like Bang Bang + Shot Through The Heart.

Shot Through the Heart, Runaway and Burning for Love are the ones that I dig. It's probably a more even record than Fahrenheit, but I find Fahrenheit to be a more interesting record; even if some of the stuff it tries doesn't work. All in all, it's an okay record, but sounds more like a cross between Aldo Nova and Survivor than Bon Jovi - Slippery REALLY brought the Springsteen influence to the table (Wild In The Streets!), and is much more of a popping (and pop) record. The heavy-ish backbeat of the debut is less "fun".

It is my 80th favourite album of all time. But only my 11th favourite Bon Jovi / Jon / Richie album.

This is the review I wrote 12 years ago (!):

A promising debut. This album doesn’t exactly re-invent the wheel, and the band does sound a little too much like other, more popular bands of their day; sticking closely to the straight ahead pop metal template and offering little in the way of experimentation or innovation. However, some blistering guitar work and its meshing with the keyboards helps to lift the album beyond being a second rate clone of other pop metal albums. You can feel a real desire on the part of the brand to break out and take on the world here, and that excitement manifests itself in the music. The songwriting isn’t stellar by any means, but there are glimpses of the genius that would come later, and even at this early stage, their talent for writing songs that people can relate to shines. Overall then, an exciting, youthful, hungry album, albeit one that was played a little too safe to truly set the world alight.

8/10


Essential songs: Runaway, Roulette, Shot Through The Heart
Also great: Come Back
Also good: She Don't Know Me, Breakout, Love Lies, Burning For Love
Not so keen on it: Get Ready
