Holy Sknikees. This is it. The #1 Bon Jovi album of all time (not to mention, one of the two greatest albums ever, along with "Van Halen"). The first song I ever heard from Bon Jovi is on this album ("Shot Through The Heart", which my gym teacher used to play over and over for a week, and it stuck with me). What kind of fool wouldn't pay good money for this historic album?! Here it is through my eyes:
1. Runaway - ****, my favorite keyboard riff (of which I've heard that David didn't create originally, but I'm sure he plays it better than that guy from Springsteen!) and one of the greatest first songs a band ever recorded.
2. Roulette - *****, one of the two second best songs ever, along with 'Bad Medicine', which was recorded on their 4th album, "New Jersey". One of Ritchie's highest triumphs.
3. She Don't Know Me - *************************..............., THE GREATEST, MOST SPECTACULAR, MOST UNDERRATED (especially compared to how high it SHOULD have been rated!), BRIGHTLY DONE, INTELLIGENT SONG EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE BASIC REASON TO BUY THE ALBUM. BUY IT!!!!!!
4. Shot Through The Heart - ****, the second most pop-based song on the album, a great example of the "Shout Along" era
5. Love Lies - ***, not bad, but one of the album's weakest song, basically because it's TOO SLOW!!!
6. Breakout - ****, the band's first time to show how good they sound in unison, not to mention the raw lyrics, guitar, and percussion collabortion
7. Burning For Love - **, the album's weakest track, but still not bad
8. Come Back - ***, an OK song, to say the least
9. Get Ready - ***, great intro, but when the song picks up with Jon's vocals.....
So, there you have it. BUY THE ALBUM!!!!!!!!!

"Runaway," of course, started it all. The Bon Jovi legacy that has made it over three decades, despite how all of the 80's haters have tried to scar this band with a scarlet letter of its own. Resilience has kept the band out of the grave, which is much more than the once brutal grunge army can say for their beloved Cobain. Despite the fact that there is a large legion of those who use a wave of their hand to dismiss 80's rock as pretensious, Bon Jovi is indeed one of the rare examples of products as commercially in-your-face as the Big Mac who made it to that point by offering us something as creatively/artistically crafted as a gourmet entree at a prestigious New York City dining establishment.
I was 4 when this album came out, and didn't start rocking with them till "New Jersey" came out. I can't say for sure if I would have thought Bon Jovi the greatest thing ever to exist, if I was a teenager at the time. Fortunately, I'll never have to answer that. Indeed, Jovi's first 2 albums, while LOVED by a stubborn (in a good way) minority, aren't like the rest. They're less diverse, not as unique, offer less musically, and just about every song is about women and/or some sort of heart-break; which, as I noted on my Farenheit review, is just PERFECT musical therapy for certain times in everyone's life. Otherwise, though, this album isn't very multi-purpose for you the listener. Still, this first album, while not as meaningful as "Slippery..." or "Keep the Faith," somehow finds a bit of timelessness simply by being the "classic breakthrough that started it all.

Before Bon Jovi wimped out, they were one of the finest rock bands of thei eighties. In 1984, the band released its debut album, which was actually a compilation of the material Jon had recorded up until then. Read on to see how the band's self-titled debut measures up.
Runaway - This song is the only true hit to emerge from the album, and it's nothing short of excellent. In a way, this was a premonition to the ballads the band would produce in later years (but unlike them, this is an EXTREMELY good song.)
Roulette - An excellent eighties rocker, the chorus (and the part right before the chorus) is priceless in this one. Arguably the best song on this album.
She Don't Know Me - A typical rock ballad. This is a good song, but it sounds too much like a rip-off of Journey's faithfully (fortunately though, THIS is the better of the two songs.)
Shot Through The Heart - One of Jon's typical heartbreak songs, but still a good track, and highly underrated.
Love Lies - WITHOUT QUESTION THE GREATEST BALLED THAT THIS BAND HAS EVER RECORDED. Anyone who has doubts about the piano's place in rock and roll hasn't heard this song.
Breakout - Eighties pop meets eighties rock, with excellent results. As tkdmateo's review put it, this one is a premonition to the band's later pop-rock success.
Burning For Love - One of the harder and more emotional tracks on the album, this one has an odd but striking resemblance to Southern Man, a Neil Young song. Yet another excellent track.
Come Back - This sounds a good deal like the band's later ballads. That makes it one of the weaker tracks on the album, but it's still nothing short of excellent.
Get Ready - One of the more pop-oriented songs on the album, this track is still an excellent one only a fool would skip.
