Product Description

This best-of is loaded with the usual smash suspects plus three new cuts--the sub-Mellancamp "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night," the Bed of Roses-style ballad single "Always," and a low-key remake of "Living On A Prayer" titled "Prayer '94." Love 'em or not, there's no denying the loyalty of the fans. --Jeff Bateman

Bon Jovi were just a good rock band in their day & certainly have maintained careers into 2012. They have had an endurance that alot of bands that came out in their time haven't. Alot of people say that is because of Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora & the guys in the band. I think that is true to some extent. You can't argue with Jon Bon Jovi's winning smile and the great guitar riffs that Richie provided as well as the great rock drumming & other backup from the band.

1.Livin on A Prayer! Just a great rock song that's a standby Bon Jovi tune. So popular in it's day. Really great beats in this song that keep the melody for this song. Love that gritty quality that he has in his vocal performance. When I listen to this song now I can relate to the decade that this CD came out. Now if you want a different version of these songs Bon Jovi put out another CD that actually has acoustical versions of the songs on this CD & it is cool!

2.Keep The Faith: This is one of my favorite BJ songs. I love the guitar intro for this song and you can always depend on the band to keep the music tight. The lyrics in this song are just so powerful and to me showcase some of JBJ's great ability to write great rock songs! A positively written song of course about faith & love!

3.Always: A really lovely ballad that of course was hit with most people especially the ladies. JBJ does the best vocal on this track. The piano work in this song is just so fitting for this tune! Wonderful lyrical lucky is his wife!

4.Wanted Dead or Alive: This has always been my favorie BJ song. From the really awesome intro for this song with the exceptional guitar & percussion work.

Bon Jovi's first greatest hits album is entitled "Cross Road". The title is appropriate because by the time of its release in 1994, the group had really reached a true crossroads in their career. Bon Jovi had rode the wave of the hard rock/metal-like influence on the pop music scene in the late 1980s. By the time of 1992's "Keep the Faith", they still were doing what they do best - but now Alternative Music was beginning to dominate the pop scene. Therefore, I think its very appropriate that the group put out a Greatest Hits album - and look back to determine what the next steps should be in their career. This is what the band did on "Cross Road" - a compilation of 11 Bon Jovi songs spread over the groups' 5 albums (plus one Jon Bon Jovi solo effort) as well as the inclusion of 3 new tracks that are truly reflective of this "crossroads" theme.
It's important to know that this is really a sampling of Bon Jovi's greatest hits. This collection doesn't attempt to go deeper. It really took the most popular songs from the group's previous albums and included them on one collection. I think the reason for 3 new tracks was to try to attract the pure Bon Jovi fans who were looking for more I was disappointed there was only 1 song from "7800 Degrees Fahrenheit" ("In and Out of Love") and one song from the self-titled "Bon Jovi" album ("Runaway") . It is also worth noting that Bon Jovi has done other Greatest Hits compilations - such as the live album "One Wild Night" and the acoustic-sounding remake of their greatest hits on "This Left Feels Right". This is going to be the only pure studio recorded greatest hits album that has been released.

Any collection of Bon Jovi songs is near perfect or perfect, so to have to rate this album really is cheating. But I do have some criticisms to make.
If you are only getting this to complete your collection or to get a lineup of Bon Jovi songs played in a refreshingly different order than you are used to, OR just to make sure you have a reference copy to the three songs that as of now aren't available anywhere else, fine.
But if you want to get this 1) because Bon Jovi isn't important enough to purchase their catalog, all they are good for is the hits everyone knows, 2) as an introduction to the band, or 3) you just LOVE that song called "Always", then: shame on you.
Bon Jovi is one of the best bands of the second half of the 20th century, and hopefully more than just that. To think that your Bon Jovi quota can be fulfilled with a hits cd is depressing. Come on now! "New Jersey" and "Keep the Faith" are such incredible albums, you will never know how good they really are if you don't own them. "Always" is just a ripoff of their waaaay better composition entitled "I Want You" from their "Keep the Faith Album." It went to #1 and now barely anyone seems to know of the 2X platinum "Keep the Faith" album. I could go on but I've made the necessary point.
Now to the album itself, rated against the criteria of a solid hits album (equally representative of all major hits, albums up to that point in time, and inclusion of new material).
The new tunes are alright, but against the masterpiece they made only 2 years before, their evolution in sound was slightly worrisome, only because they were really soooo good in '92 (thank God with "Bounce", they're back on track again). "Someday....
