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.

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!!!!

(Ok Ok, it is really a 5 star situation as far as I'm concerned, but I wanted to leave room for New Jersey and Keep the Faith)
Yes, this is a "classic." Though not the musical muscle flex of their later works (you MUST go endure my ranting review of the Blaze of Glory Album if you haven't already), Slippery When Wet not only 1) generated the mass hits that for many people are the only Bon Jovi songs they know, 2)saved Bon Jovi's career and ALLOWED them to make better albums later on, 3) defined an era, and 4) unified a "band sound" for them, but it was the embryo of what would become the most profound emotional journey as the band marched onward to later albums. This is an essential album both for the band to have made, and for anyone's collection. I don't care how many copies it sells (though please go by another copy so we can see the thing push another platinum level), it's not as good as Jersey, Blaze of Glory (the Holy Grail), or Faith, ... but it IS good, and when in the right mood, it can still serve emotional functions even after having been listened to for a decade and a half. If you don't have it, would you please just go get it? Enough said about Slippery, as the music speaks for itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let It Rock! Feb. 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet is one of the most famous rock albums in the world. The opening track already is very good. "Let It Rock" blows your mind with good guitar riffs! Same kind of tracks are "Raise Your Hands" and "Wild in the Streets". The album contains classic Bon Jovi tracks "You Give Love a Bad Name", "Livin' on a Prayer", and of course, "Wanted Dead Or Alive", a classic of the classics which is a western song. There's also "Social Disease" which starts with women enjoying...probably the music. "Without Love" is a good track for people like me and for all people who like BJ. "I'd Die for You" and first of all "Never Say Goodbye" are very beautiful ballads. Especially "Never Say Goodbye" made me want to buy this album. If you like rock'n'roll, you have to buy this album! This is the best hard rock since Led Zeppelin!
