While many people often say an album like 'New Jersey' or 'Slippery When Wet' are Bon Jovi's finest album(s), I am pretty different. In my opinion, their 1984 self-titled debut album is their best and my personal favorite.

I had the cassette of this, and I have just about worn it out. This album is superb. Jon Bon Jovi and company are at their best here. This album, of course, contains one of their most well-known songs to date, 'Runaway.'

Other great songs here are 'She Don't Know Me,' 'Shot Through The Heart,' 'Get Ready,' and another one of my all-time favorite Bon Jovi songs, 'Roulette.'

I would say that if you don't own 'Bon Jovi,' than you are really missing out. If you enjoyed 'Slippery When Wet,' than I can almost guarantee you will love this album.

Overall, I strongly recommend this album for any Bon Jovi fan. This is the band at their best. It sounds just as good in 2008 as it did in 1984.

This is highly recommended for any Bon Jovi fan, whether it be casual, new or die-hard. This is a must own album. An '80s classic.

ENJOY!!!

My aunt grew up in New Jersey. And always raved about Bon Jovi during her teens. Primarily know them from their later 80's blockbuster hits. They were played on the radio. For that time? It was some of the more harder rocking music I'd enjoy next to Van Halen. Several years ago I saw this album around. From a period a few years before I was familiar with any of the music on it. But somehow? I found the concept of a Bon Jovi album from 1984 to be exciting. Considering the fascinating crossroads rock was taking at that particular time. And as it turns out? This was no disappointment at all.

"Runaway" is a thick,synth powered rocker with some thickly layered lead riffs. "Roulette","Breakout","Burning For Love","Come Back" and the closer "Get Ready" are all melodically catchy riff o ramma's-revving up and sustaining that power,energy and instrumental strength throughout. "She Don't Know Me" is my favorite on here-with a wonderfully constructed piano based rocker which,like the somewhat more progressive minded "Shot Through The Heart" and the cooled out ballad "Love Lies" are all highly arena friendly numbers.

Overall this is a wonderful mainstream pop/rock album from the mid 1980's. It has every single one of the Bon Jovi musical trademarks that even I am aware of. The busy arrangements,anthemic vocals of Jon himself as well as the exciting and very technically expert guitar of Richie Sambora. The smooth yet slightly gritty flavor has a strong street rock flavor to it as well. For me? Everything just works about their ability to meld songwriting/pop smarts with a tough rocking attitude. Not to mention a clean production style with the great potential to evolve over time. Which of course it did. Superb first album for these 80's rock icons.

Most of us know that groups come, and groups go. While this is not Bon Jovi's best record, it to some extent shows why Bon Jovi is still here to tell his tale over 20 years later. Some people who don't like him say that Bon Jovi is commercial oriented. I'll admit that is true to some extent. But the real reason he is still here to tell the tale over 20 years later is because the man CAN write songs; he CAN sing; and he DOES put honest work and effort into his records. While Bon Jovi would get heavier and more intense (at least for awhile), the fact that this record has only a moderate intensity shows that he DOES have musical abilities, and he DOES NOT need to hind under excess noise. The 1st half of the record has a sad (but energetic) tone. 'Runaway' is a catchy opener. 'Roulette' demonstrates some of guitarist Richie Sambora's talent, and almost carries a haunting tone. 'She Don't Know Me' releases the tension for a moment; 'Shot Through the Heart' and 'Love Lies' may sound clicheish, but somehow Bon Jovi is able to break the odds and restore the tone of these songs to 'pre cliche' levels. 'Breakout' changes the tone of the record to a more upbeat level. 'Burning For Love' and 'Come Back' continue this path, and 'Get Ready' ends the record on a happy note. It is interesting that while the record starts on a sad note, Bon Jovi is able to change the tone without seeming abrupt. Again, while this may not be his best record, it demonstrates his abilities quite well and explains why he is still here over 20 years later.

Hello and yes I have enjoyed the music and his number one hit Runaway.... I love his music period...... He is absolutely fine gentle man and husband who loves his family and his devoted fans.... hope we will have more wonderful music in the future... but Jon and his band really need a little break from their 2013 tour all over the world.... his concerts are always sold out... and that can only say how wonderful his music is... if you can please convey to him and his family greeting from our family.... love always.. marcelle....
