Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This best-of is loaded with the usual smash suspects plus three new cuts--the sub-Mellancamp "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night," the Bed of Roses-style ballad single "Always," and a low-key remake of "Living On A Prayer" titled "Prayer '94." Love 'em or not, there's no denying the loyalty of the fans. --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Crossroads- Most of Bon Jovi's Hits in One Package June 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Bon Jovi's collection of 14 classic grooves is pretty much what it says it is. Its a greatest hits album that has most of the good stuff. The album starts with the classic "Livin' On a Prayer". If this song doesn't make you want to sing there is something wrong with you. The album also includes "Runaway" "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "You Give Love a Bad Name", three more songs that are definatly sing-along favorites. There are two songs on the album that are not very good: "Lay Your Hands on Me" and "In and Out of Love". They should not be included, but what can you do? Other songs on the album wich are above standard are "Blaze of Glory"(From the Young Guns II album) and "I'll Be There For You". Crossroads also includes three tracks that are on no other Bon Jovi albums. "Always", "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night", and "Prayer '94". "Always" was a big hit and is a decent song, but not one of my favorites. "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night" isn't classic Bon Jovi, its not bad, but doesn't really fit. "Prayer '94" is a slowed down version of "Livin' on a Prayer" I like it, it shows another side of this classic song. Actually, it kind of brings back memories from Jon and Richie's acoustic version of "Wanted Dead or Alive" from the VMA's. All in all this a great album. For any Bon Jovi fan it is a must.EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT A BON JOVI FANATIC AND THINK HE IS O.K.BUY THE ALBUM. It has classic tunes and is ideal for cruising in your car.

4.0 out of 5 stars Power Rock Fun - Great for Fast Driving October 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I admit it. I grew up listening to Bon Jovi. The power ballad, the sing-along-at-the-top-of-your-lungs, they were hard to resist at times!

I really love "Livin' On a Prayer". You get a sense that this couple is really struggling - but that they're going to make it because they keep trying. Given the number of disasters that hit our world, it's an encouraging thought.

I've always enjoyed "Wanted Dead or Alive" - that guitar riff is just so haunting, and the sense that the band is adrift and carried along is a lot like "Faithfully" by Journey. They give you a glimpse into the down-side of being a big band.

"Blaze of Glory" is another great one for me, another one to sing along at the top of my lungs. Maybe I watched westerns a little too much growing up, but the power behind the song really gets to me. "I don't know where I'm going - only God knows where I've been". I feel like that sometimes.

Really, there's something to be said for pretty much any song here. "Runaway" calls to mind the times it really did seem like a valid solution, taking off into the night. "Lay your hands on me" has an attraction of a different type.

Yes, these are hot-rock-blasts for playing loud as you drive your car down the freeway at top speed. If that's the music you enjoy, you'll be thrilled with this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, unforgettable and highly addictive July 24, 2000
By Corinne
Format:Audio CD
This album is the perfect start for any new BJ fan. Hard-rocking hits like "You Give Love a Bad Name", "Lay Your Hands On Me", "Bad Medicine" and the ever-powerful "Living On a Prayer" introduce the new fan to BZ's successful classic days; the glorious 80's. Ah, those were the days - when BIG hair was practically a norm, pop metal ruled the music scene and the controversial idea of "love, sex and the American dream" plagued society and gave the bands new ideas for new material.
"Keep the Faith" is definitely not a song you'll forget in a hurry..and not just because it's STILL on American airwaves - it really is a smashing tune with a MESSAGE. Jon's strong vocals and Richie's legendary guitar riffs deliver it well. "Blaze of Glory", a product of Jon's shot at solo material, is emotionally victorious and wistful at the same time - a powerful, soaring track that should be played at a HIGH volume!
Ahh, and who can forget the ballads? "Always" is STILL one of my all-time favorite songs. "Bed of Roses" has got to be one of the most romantic songs of the 90's: 'I've got nothing to prove, for it's you that I'd die to defend!' Who could ask for more? "I'll Be There For You" is a favorite among a lot of dedicated BJ fans, and for good reason, too.
As for the rest I can take it or leave it. "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night" is catchy but rather simplistic for my taste. "Runaway" is cute though. But that's about all I can say about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Those Who Hate Bon Jovi.........Shame On You October 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a fan of Bon Jovi and I never really hated the guy. I just so happened to notice that most of the recent reviews of this album had gone too far. Remenber that this Best of album was released by Polygram Records way back 1994 and not 2005.

I for one bought a copy of this album simply because of the the two hit singles "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night" and "Always" to complete my Bon Jovi Collection. But it doesn't mean that its an awful album.

Why?

1.)Because it's a compilation of the Most Popular Bon Jovi Singles to date.

2.)There are two singles that were not included in previous or should i say old albums of Bon Jovi.

3.)People who are dissing this album are just afraid to accept the reality that their Rock gods have already fallen. And yet, Bon Jovi has a new album out this year ("Have A Nice Day") proving that they can still prove to the world that they still rock.

Ok, call it what you want. But don't deny that you listened to Bon Jovi before you figure out who your favorite bands are.

For the people who wanted to buy the album: Trust your instincts.

Do not rely on reviews because sometimes even if the album is good they'll poorly rate it just because they hate the band.
