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'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....

This 1994 collection is the only Bon Jovi CD many a fan will need. Cross Road covers 10 songs coming from the first five albums, along with "Blaze of Glory" from the Young Guns II soundtrack and 3 1994 tracks: Someday I'll be Saturday Night, Always, and Prayer '94 (a slower acoustic version of Livin' on a Prayer). This is the only Bon Jovi hits package of the original recordings available. Don't confuse the 2003 release "This Left Feels Right: Greatest Hits with a Twist" as a definitive greatest hits because its not original recordings, its experimental versions of all the hits which bare little resemblance to the orginal classics. Pass it up unless you're a hardcore fan and even if you are, listen to samples first before spending money on it. I can highly recommend Cross Road to anyone wanting all the best Bon Jovi tracks neatly compiled on a single disc. Of course, since the band has released three albums since this collection, there may be another hits CD in the future, but as of now Cross Road is your best bet and captures Bon Jovi in all their 80s and 90s glory.

It is just so hard to imagine the megastars we've recieved in this industry that came from New Jersey. We have recieved Whitney Houston, the legendary Bruce Springsteen, and a working class group that truly has arisen to the top, Bon Jovi. The guys who group up in New Jersey have still proven that after all these years in this industry, they still have the touch. Although many people don't find them as definitive as Manufactured Britney Spears, it is so hard to believe that Jon, Richie, and all the rest of the members are still slated as a incredible force in the industry. The music is still giving a hunger to all kinds of fans.
Cross Road is a collection of their biggest songs from their original golden era in the mainstream from 1980's to the mid 90's. Their power ballad blend dtill id captured very beautifully here. The songs are all still rolling out there with great ease, including Lay Your Hands On Me, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Bad Medicine, and a whole list of others. The songs may seem like a guilty pleasure right now, but the music still makes a whole lot of noise. The package also includes the only song Jon did as a solo act at that time, Blaze Of Glory,which was nominated for an Oscar in the early 90's, as well as the power ballad, Always.
Although none of the songs from their recent period are on this record, it still won't make a difference in what Bon Jovi has made in this industry. I just have to say that this is truly one of the top Greatest Hits collections of all time, and I hope many more and a better one is issued down the road. They just can't stop their train ever.
