Product Description

Fifth album studio, originally released in 1992. Remastered and reissued in 1998 - This album features an introduction of new sounds by the band including piano ballads and excellent guitar solos. The band faded their previous image which featured a more glam metal sound that included heavy drums and guitar riffs.

Amazon.com

New Jersey hinted that Jon Bon Jovi wished to be taken as seriously as Bruce Springsteen; Keep the Faith confirms that notion. However, Jon Bon Jovi is the man who sang "I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all" without so much as smirking. That's why the songs on Keep the Faith where Bon Jovi attempts profundity--like the interminable, pointless "Dry Country"--are virtually unlistenable, and why ear candy such as "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" and "Bed of Roses" is harmlessly beguiling. --Andrew Mueller

You'd be much better off if this was the disc you chose. (6 million stars, but I seem not to have been able to find that voting option).
Let's get right to the heart of the matter, shall we? On "Keep the Faith," one of the best albums ever recorded (if not the best), "Dry County" is one of the best songs ever (if not THE best). It is an auditory testament to a) how good this band can be, b) the concept of perfection, and c) the purpose of music on Earth. A doctoral thesis could be written on the purpose and power of the near 10 minute epic in the haunting key of d minor that sits at the number 7 track position on this recording, and I am hard pressed to not start writing one here. But I need to get through the whole album in 1000 words...
You've got Stairway, Freebird, Layla, Bohemian Rhapsody, and a simple answer as to why LESS than 2 million people of the entire American population are lucky enough to possess the knowledge that "Dry County" is pretty much the peak of musical epics: it was written by a) Bon Jovi, b) an "80's band", c) an "80's band" in the NINETIES, and d) never released as a domestic single, thus not generating the grape-vine mystique that safe, ridicule-immune "70's bands" wound up scooping up with all of their "legendary" anthems. For the last time: Bon Jovi, for all of their popularity, will always be under-respected, and there's nothing cheesy about any of this.
If you read on, you may learn something before slamming this review for being narcissistic and preachy. "Keep the Faith" was an album released on November 3, 1992.

Bon Jovi were on the verge of terminally languishing in the almost-great league at the end of the 80's, until this excellent record launched them into the rock-stratosphere.
Softer than heavy metal, harder than most AOR, Bon Jovi turned their large air-punching-rock skills (of "Living On A Prayer", "Bad Medecine" etc etc) to producing an album of powerful, mature and strong songs, from the building, driving opening combo of "I Believe" & "Keep The Faith" to the tender "Bed Of Roses". The mamoth "Dry County" (at ten minutes) is a classic which many thought Bon Jovi just couldn't make. The strength of the singles is enough to commend this album, but the album tracks shine too.
Richie Sambora (responsible for some of the best air-guitar fodder) displays a new depth and soleful-ness to his playing, further evidenced on his solo albums. Tico Torres is more powerful than before, and with production that is a fine line between polish and grit, the sound is convincing.
As an album there are only a couple of tracks that don't measure up and the album lacks the hunger and raw energy of "Slippery When Wet" or (the under-rated) "New Jersey", but it is a more complete album and is better equipped to withstand the test of time than it's predecessors.
This is a journey almost into Aerosmith territory (on a soft day), and Bon Jovi get away with all limbs intact...

Slippery When Wet made them superstars. New Jersey established them as a great rock band, but Keep The Faith just proves that Bon Jovi is not just another band from the 80's. There are the trademark Bon Jovi songs with the catchy chorus and guitar riffs, but it's the songs that are different to Bon Jovi fans that makes this album work. The opening track I Believe is a solid rock that grabs your attention and it is followed by the title track which is a departure from anything on the New Jersey album. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead is a typical Bon Jovi sing-a-along that's fun to listen to and In These Arms is a cool rock ballad for the ladies, but it was Bed Of Roses that got all of the women to cry. It was also the biggest hit off of the album. The best track would have to be Dry County. Jon Bon Jovi is at his best vocally and Richie Sambora pulls off an excellent guitar riff that will blow your socks offf. The most underrated song would have to be Fear. This song definitely stands out on this album compared to the other songs. To give you my honest opinion, this is Bon Jovi's best album and I am a huge Bon Jovi fan. The songs are more solid and put together than any other Bon Jovi tune. This album also proves than Bon Jovi can be taken seriously as artists and not just another 80's rock band lying by the waste side.

With the release of "Keep the Faith", Bon Jovi successfully made the change from an 80s glam/hair band to a great rock and roll band in the 90s.

This cd is loaded with great songs, including the title cut, "I Believe", and the very good "Dry County", an 8 minute song about the problems facing rural America.

For fans of ballads, there are two excellent ones on this cd; "Bed of Roses" and "I Want You". Both feature Jon's tremendous vocals and Richie's great guitar work.

There is very little filler material on this cd. Each song is very good in its own right. From the upbeat "Sleep When I'm Dead" to "In These Arms", there is something for everyone on this cd. I highly recommend this great disc. Pop it in and hear some great rock and roll by the boys from New Jersey.
