Although the album is titled "Keep the Faith", the song "Keep the Faith" isn't the first song. Bon Jovi picked the song "I Believe" for the first song. This is a true "Arena Rock" song and the perfect song to open the collection with. Bon Jovi rocks hard in this song. The real star of this song is going to be drummer Tico Torres who is going to have some thundering percussions that will really steal this song.Read more ›
Let's get right to the heart of the matter, shall we? On "Keep the Faith," one of the best albums ever recorded (if not the best), "Dry County" is one of the best songs ever (if not THE best). It is an auditory testament to a) how good this band can be, b) the concept of perfection, and c) the purpose of music on Earth. A doctoral thesis could be written on the purpose and power of the near 10 minute epic in the haunting key of d minor that sits at the number 7 track position on this recording, and I am hard pressed to not start writing one here. But I need to get through the whole album in 1000 words...
You've got Stairway, Freebird, Layla, Bohemian Rhapsody, and a simple answer as to why LESS than 2 million people of the entire American population are lucky enough to possess the knowledge that "Dry County" is pretty much the peak of musical epics: it was written by a) Bon Jovi, b) an "80's band", c) an "80's band" in the NINETIES, and d) never released as a domestic single, thus not generating the grape-vine mystique that safe, ridicule-immune "70's bands" wound up scooping up with all of their "legendary" anthems. For the last time: Bon Jovi, for all of their popularity, will always be under-respected, and there's nothing cheesy about any of this.
If you read on, you may learn something before slamming this review for being narcissistic and preachy. "Keep the Faith" was an album released on November 3, 1992.Read more ›
The more the press was talking about a possible break up within the band, the more these boys proved them wrong.
The opening track I BELIEVE is a statement of confidence, KEEP THE FAITH is a plead to fans not to believe the hype and BLAME IT ON THE LOVE OF ROCK & ROLL explains it all in its title.
Jon delivers three great ballads: IN THESE ARMS (very arena-anthem-like...we sung on top of our lungs at their 1993 concert...), BED OF ROSES is maybe a bit over-rated, and I WANT YOU is the closest to a Diane Warren style song.
And then comes my favourite: IF I WAS YOUR MOTHER is the stand out nugget: would you let me be as close to you as your beloved mom?...
Desmond Child is part of the party also this time (I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD is sooo much of a fun rock tune!).
I only have a complaint: 4 years always in between albums??? Guys your releases are the long-awaited kind!

KEEP THE FAITH is the first "serious" album that Bon Jovi ever put out. It seems as though the boys were stung by the bad press given to their first four, party-oriented,... Read morePublished on Dec 5 2002
Keep the Faith is what you'd call a "Blockbuster". There's no other album of any band in the world that has ever reached its class. Read morePublished on Jan. 13 1999 by Nick Schumann
Keep the Faith is the last perfect album by Bon Jovi (These Days and Destination Anywhere are good but too sluthy). It's rocky with some intense ballads. Read morePublished on Oct. 14 1998
