You haven't heard the truly great songs on this record. The two hits, "Blaze of Glory," and "Miracle" are strong tracks, no doubt about it. But the greatness remaining on this album is an eye-opening study of the songwriter named Jon Bon Jovi.
This album feels like a western. No doubt. Jon Bon Jovi may be from Jersey but he knows what the old west is about -- dirt, spit, blood. Big emotions and big voices. That's what this album provides. When this album was written Jon probably didn't know how to write a bad song.
But there is one song that is truly unforgettable. It is called "Santa Fe" and it is probably the pinnacle of songwriting for Jon. He delivers a vocal performance that he could probably never duplicate in a song that lies itself bleeding on a dirty rock and roll highway. Listening to this song is exhausting, I can't imagine performing it.
The rest of this record may not reach that pinnacle but it gets close. And how many records can say that?

This album truly shows the great Talent that Jon Bon Jovi uses in the other albums where he plays with the band. In some songs in Blaze of Glory you almost don't have any music, only the image of a great songwriter and singer that doesn't use any special effects to cover his voice, but has a very country/rock style that influences thousands to pick up guitars and start writing and playing. Great songs, catchy... fun to sing and fun to play... Buy this CD... but be careful, if you'll buy you'll end up buying the rest of his albums :) Enjoy.

(...) Tonight I just got back from a 3 hour long marathon heated discussion with my piano professor about the usual topic, "pop" vs. "classical" (I hate labels) and I now view it as my godgiven destiny to proclaim to everyone the entity that is the Blaze of Glory album.
No, I'm not a 35 year old who's been into Bon Jovi since the Runaway and Farenheit days (though I was quick to catch up), but I can't do anything about that. At the age of 10, I saw the Blaze of Glory Video on TV, and that is the reason for everything I have chosen to do to this day.
Yes, I guess I am slightly biased, being a hardcore Jovi fan for a good 12 years and counting now, but... I'll do my best here to try to put myself on the level of all the "Ew that is cheesy hair metal" people that I have had the misfortune of being surrounded by all my life, if just to try to reach them somehow. (Is that possible?)
Please forgive me if this review doesn't seem to the point, but I view it as necessary. The bottom line is, although Jon Bon Jovi is not Beethoven (though I foolishly tried to draw some parallels to that earlier this evening), he has "it." What is "it?" It's not a selloutcheezyleaterpantslonghairspandexpretensious element that most people my age seem to see in him (or the band for that matter). But it is an element that has evolved and perfected itself in the form of Jon Bon Jovi. He is not fake. He writes, sings, and plays from the heart, I swear to God. I don't care how much of a Jazz, Beatles, Techno, Nirvana, Bach, or Rap (or Def Leppard, for that matter) lover you are. When you put this album on and you are engulfed by the surreal power of "Sante Fe", "Miracle", the title track, and "Justice in the Barrel", you learn (or are vividly reminded) why music exists in the first place.

It's hard to classify this album in a genre, but musically it is a benchmark album that sets a standard that few can reach. What sets it apart from Bon Jovi (the band) records, is that it doesn't sound so polished and commercially viable. This is real, heartfelt compilation of songs that speak of life and anyone with a soul could relate to a few of these. "Santa Fe" is one of the greatest songs, lyrically and musically, that I have ever heard. It takes you to a state of mind that few songs do. The movie was decent, but it pales in comparison to this album. I wouldn't buy this album because of the movie, i would buy the movie because of the album.

Since this one has been out for over ten years now, I guess I should review it since itis my all time favorite soundtrack to any movie (even edging out The Crow). This soundtrack is by far one of the best you can find. It might also help, that thanks to the 2000 release of Crush (and the fact that Bon jovi is "cool" again People will buy this album. I ,myself, have worn out two tapes and am on my second cd version of this one. It's just incredible. After eleven years, I still get goosebumps after "Santa Fe". I'm also very pleased with how jon and the boys have handled themselves after all these years and how they survived the grunge, industrial, rap-metal trends that murdered nearly everyone else from their era. However, they did survive for a reason, not luck. Their music was actually good. not just a flavor of the month. If you're a long time Bon jovi fan you probably already own it, but if you're a newcomer, check this out. I think you will be pleased to see the magic that made you buy Crush, was here then, just like it always was. I'm kinda sad to say that the rest of the band wasn't there for this one (although there is CERTAINLY nothing wrong with Jeff Beck's playing). In a lot of ways, this film is just like the movie, wild and rocking. check it out and for give this somewhat sporadic and incohesive review. Enjoy.
