Product Description

Amazon.ca

Slippery When Wet transformed Bon Jovi from minor-league poodle rockers to global superstars on the back of hit singles "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Never Say Goodbye," and, of course, "Living on a Prayer." From the scantily clad car-wash girls on the inner sleeve to the "You lost more than that in my back seat / Yeah!" lyrics, the album is blissfully untouched by irony and subtlety, which actually adds to its charm. With guitarist Richie Sambora and songwriter Desmond Child, Jon Bon Jovi has produced a slew of consistently memorable tunes, and this album contains its fair share of them. Slippery When Wet won't change your world, but it will, undoubtedly, rock it. --Ronita Dutta

3.0 out of 5 stars So-So Reissue Oct. 21 2010
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
So far, I'm not blown away by the new series on Bon Jovi reissues. For the running time, they could give you a heck of a longer running time. I mean, I've bought this album 3 times. I bought it on cassette back in '87, then I bought the first round of CD issues of the entire Bon Jovi catalogue. Now, begrudgingly, I'm starting to pick these up, because I'm a completionist. How many times have you bought Slippery When Wet already? At least once, I'm guessing.

Slippery When Wet is one of those oddball albums: It's considered the classic landmark by a very successful band, but it is by no means even close to their best work. It's telling that few of these songs are still played live.

Slippery When Wet is notable for the presence of three smash hit classics: "Wanted: Dead or Alive", "Livin' On A Prayer", and "You Give Love A Bad Name". All three are available on various Bon Jovi hits compilations. The album is padded out with some other decent songs and lots of filler. Surely, "Social Disease" with its juvenile lyrics and terrible synth-horns is one that Jon would like to disown. Not much better is "Wild In The Streets", "I'd Die For You", and the sappy "Without Love".

"Let It Rock" is a cool song, a bit muddy in the mix, but with some really cool sounding keyboards. I have always been a fan of "Raise Your Hands". Remember when it was used in that one scene in Spaceballs? Sweet!

The production, by the late Bruce Fairbairn, is muddy at times and far too glossy at others. Fairbairn's work on the 80's Aerosmith albums was far more innovative and interesting. I've always liked talk-box on guitar solos, so I'll give him and Richie Sambora credit for the catchiest talk-box solo in history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing album! June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've only just started to like these guys. All my life I have heard "Livin' on a prayer" and when I got to this age I just had to get the album. Good choice. It's brilliant! They're my best band of the 80s.
Let it rock: It's a nice opener for you. It just shows you that better songs are coming. It takes about the first minute of the song to hear the first vocal. 5/5
You give love a bad name: I love this one! The guitar playing is amazing andf I love the vocals. Unbeatable chorus. 5/5
Livin' on a prayer: Arguably my favourite, but I can't decide between this and "You give love...". Extremely catchy. Everyone I know loves this. 5/5
Social desease: It starts off very well, but it has a bad chorus. Probably my weakest song. 4/5
Wanted dead or alive: One of their most famous songs. It sounds scary at the start, but it gets lighter. Nice acoustic playing to a slow-paced song. 4/5
Raise your hands: A great song which has been forgotten. The chorus has great shouting. 5/5
Without love: I like Jon's singing on this one. A nice slow calm song, but it can be fun to sing. Great chorus. 5/5
I'd die for you: You think this is goanna be a fast, fun song, but it's quite touching. Nice keyboard playing and great lyrics. I love the backing voclas. It contains a chorus you need to sing. 5/5
Never say goodbye: Probably the slowest song on the album. Calm guitar playing, but it can be a bit boring. 4/5
Wild in the streets: It sounds a bit different, but it's a good song to end the album. It's fun and fast. Good backing vocals and a shouting chorus. 5/5
I only own three Bon Jovi albums, and if I get anymore this would probably still be my favourite.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its alright but...... March 26 2004
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
Slippery When Wet is an alright album but its way to over produced and its too commercial. Yes I realize Bon Jovi, so their a hair band so that means every thing they make will be commercial but come on. Bon Jovi is not hard rock, not a single hair band is hard rock, ok they were about as hard rock as Journey was. But dont get me wrong some of them were good and Bon jovi is one of the few.
Slippery When Wet is by far Bon Jovis best album 'Livin On A prayer' is a great love song, 'Lat It Rock' is a pretty decent rock song, 'You Give Love A Bad Name' is also a pretty decent rock song, and 'Raise Your Hands' is alright. Now 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' is one of the greatest songs ever recorded, writen and produced. The 12 string by Rhichie Sambora is killer and Jon Bon Jovi dont sound bad himself.
This is a good album but like I said I've heard better but by Bon Jovi it dont get better then this, and dont be fooled by other reviewers Bon Jovi is not the best herd rock band since Led Zeppelin, I mean come on people lets use some since!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Vo5 charged hair metal March 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Theres no denying Jon Bon Jovi has an incredible vocal range and Richie Sambora, unlike many 80's guitarists can really wail when he wants to. The first half of this album fares much better then the second half. Theres arena rock gems like "Let it Rock", "You give love a bad name" and "Livin on a Prayer". "Wanted:Dead or Alive" is worth listening to if simply to hear Sambora's sick guitar intro. Unfortunately the second half of the album collapses under its own hair gel. Theres a couple more rockers but mostly ballads so sappy they make Sammy Hagar look like a die hard cynic. IT will make you grateful Kurt Cobain came along and destroyed this kind of spandex and Vo5 charged poodle hair metal. In any case the album does make you wonder how much you got to fork over for those girls in the album jacket to wash youre car.
