The first Bon Jovi effort is one of those albums I consider underrated. It isn’t overplayed or a radio darling like some of the band’s future efforts and it has a special place in my collection. Now I would hardly consider Bon Jovi as an underrated artist because of the band’s longevity and popularity and the millions of records they sold, but their debut album is somewhat of a lost gem and forgotten besides the single “Runaway”. The songs are noticeable darker than your average Bon Jovi and their sound wasn’t as polished and commercial although there are slight hints, this one is a little more rooted in Rock and Roll and takes inspiration from Springsteen and the New Jersey streets. It’s one of the reasons I like it so much; It’s raw and unpolished and it’s also honest and reflective of the period were Jon Bon Jovi was just a struggling musician trying to make it which can be felt here. Another remarkable thing is that the lineup on this album was already the classic lineup: Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora(guitars), David Bryan(keyboards), Tico Torres (drums) and Alec John Such (bass). From the get-go they seemed poised to take over the world and as this effort proves it, they had great songs from the beginning and there’s a lot I like on this record probably because it hasn’t been played a zillion times on the radio.

“Runaway” was the single of course and the song everyone remembers from BJ’s debut. It’s memorable for that chorus, heavy keyboard and dark undertones and it’s the one song the band continues to play live from this album.
It’s a fantastic Pop sounding Rock piece and it’s a personal favorite after all those years.“Roulette” has a surprisingly heavy and aggressive riff considering its Bon Jovi.

Holy Sknikees. This is it. The #1 Bon Jovi album of all time (not to mention, one of the two greatest albums ever, along with "Van Halen"). The first song I ever heard from Bon Jovi is on this album ("Shot Through The Heart", which my gym teacher used to play over and over for a week, and it stuck with me). What kind of fool wouldn't pay good money for this historic album?! Here it is through my eyes:
1. Runaway - ****, my favorite keyboard riff (of which I've heard that David didn't create originally, but I'm sure he plays it better than that guy from Springsteen!) and one of the greatest first songs a band ever recorded.
2. Roulette - *****, one of the two second best songs ever, along with 'Bad Medicine', which was recorded on their 4th album, "New Jersey". One of Ritchie's highest triumphs.
3. She Don't Know Me - *************************..............., THE GREATEST, MOST SPECTACULAR, MOST UNDERRATED (especially compared to how high it SHOULD have been rated!), BRIGHTLY DONE, INTELLIGENT SONG EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE BASIC REASON TO BUY THE ALBUM. BUY IT!!!!!!
4. Shot Through The Heart - ****, the second most pop-based song on the album, a great example of the "Shout Along" era
5. Love Lies - ***, not bad, but one of the album's weakest song, basically because it's TOO SLOW!!!
6. Breakout - ****, the band's first time to show how good they sound in unison, not to mention the raw lyrics, guitar, and percussion collabortion
7. Burning For Love - **, the album's weakest track, but still not bad
8. Come Back - ***, an OK song, to say the least
9. Get Ready - ***, great intro, but when the song picks up with Jon's vocals.....
So, there you have it. BUY THE ALBUM!!!!!!!!!

"Runaway," of course, started it all. The Bon Jovi legacy that has made it over three decades, despite how all of the 80's haters have tried to scar this band with a scarlet letter of its own. Resilience has kept the band out of the grave, which is much more than the once brutal grunge army can say for their beloved Cobain. Despite the fact that there is a large legion of those who use a wave of their hand to dismiss 80's rock as pretensious, Bon Jovi is indeed one of the rare examples of products as commercially in-your-face as the Big Mac who made it to that point by offering us something as creatively/artistically crafted as a gourmet entree at a prestigious New York City dining establishment.
I was 4 when this album came out, and didn't start rocking with them till "New Jersey" came out. I can't say for sure if I would have thought Bon Jovi the greatest thing ever to exist, if I was a teenager at the time. Fortunately, I'll never have to answer that. Indeed, Jovi's first 2 albums, while LOVED by a stubborn (in a good way) minority, aren't like the rest. They're less diverse, not as unique, offer less musically, and just about every song is about women and/or some sort of heart-break; which, as I noted on my Farenheit review, is just PERFECT musical therapy for certain times in everyone's life. Otherwise, though, this album isn't very multi-purpose for you the listener. Still, this first album, while not as meaningful as "Slippery..." or "Keep the Faith," somehow finds a bit of timelessness simply by being the "classic breakthrough that started it all.
