BON JOVI "KEEP THE FAITH"   1992       I BELIEVE - A crash of drums and screeching guitars set off this album nicely that re-invented the band as a quality, mature Rock outfit..  Top notch Hard Rock track that pumps up the volume right from the start. KEEP THE FAITH - In my opinion one of the band's best ever songs.  The chug-a-chug drumbeat keeps the pace throughout while singer Jon Bon Jovi tests his whole vocal range on the track.  The optimistic, upbeat, positive anthemic chorus and screeching guitar solos are just awesome.  Pure hard Rock N' Roll at its best. I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD - A brilliant Blues Rock track, its fun, quirky and has a chorus that you just can't help singing along as a matter of fact statement! Enjoy yourselves while alive! IN THESE ARMS - An emotive Pop Rock song that drives along at a quick pace just enough to cancel out a ballad genre.  Its soulful, passionate and is still a fan favour


BON JOVI "SLIPPERY WHEN WET"   1986     LET IT ROCK - Possibly one of the best openers of a record in my opinion.  A huge church organ opening then an explosion of screeching guitars, thumping drums and anthemic chorus paved the way for the new Bon Jovi sound. YOU GIVE LOVE  A BAD NAME -  The first single from the album and a teaser of what was to become Bon Jovi's signature sound for the next decade.  Anthemic Rock with screeching guitars, keyboards and pounding drums with Jon Bon Jovi's unmistakeable vocals singing catchy choruses.     LIVIN' ON A PRAYER - Similar to the previous track, real Arena Rock.  Apparently this version is totally different to the original with extra drum fills, bass and the "talk box"!.  Awesome song to really rock out and sing along at the top of your voice!     SOCIAL DISEASE - Not a favourite of mine and a lesser song on this album but it has a lot to compare it to.  Lacks a good enough c
