In 1988 New Jersey spent 4 straight weeks at No. 1 in the U.S. and spawned five Top 10 singles ('Bad Medicine;' 'Born To Be My Baby;' 'I'll Be There For You;' 'Living In Sin;' and 'Lay Your Hands On Me') - the only rock album in history with that many Top 10 hits. Bon Jovi originally envisioned the New Jersey project as a double-LP, using the working title Sons Of Beaches. But in the end, Mercury Records released the album as a 12-track single LP and the band renamed it simply New Jersey, in honor of their home state. With this Deluxe Edition, the New Jersey originally imagined by Bon Jovi can finally be shared with fans.
The first disc of this 3-disc set (2-CD/1-DVD) features the re-mastered original album plus three bonus tracks. The second CD features the 13 Sons Of Beaches demos from the New Jersey recording sessions, remixed exclusively for this project. The third disc is a DVD with the 88 minute, behind-the-scenes documentary 'Access All Areas: A Rock & Roll Odyssey' that has never before been available on DVD, plus 7 official music videos commissioned for the New Jersey album.
Topping off this Super Deluxe edition is a 60-page book including rare and never before seen images of the band from the New Jersey era; images and memorabilia from the New Jersey world tour; insider commentary on the bonus tracks and much more.

I followed them during the releases of their first two albums and when 'Slippery When Wet' came out and people thought they might be a one album wonder I knew better. 'New Jersey' is one of the best follow up records to a 'bust out' record ever (along with Def Leppard 'Hysteria' and pearl Jam 'Vs.'). this album showed the new Bon Jovi fans that this band had more hits in them, and cemented them into the music scene.
in addition this is the best BJ album off all. 'Slippery When Wet' has a few songs that are as good or better then songs on 'New Jersey' but as a whole 'New Jersey' never lets up and is one of the best rock albums you'll hear.
My favorite part however has to be the DVD, it takes you back in time, behind the scenes and high strung emotions from everyone, as though you were really part of the band, detailing (in part) of the actions and work it takes to run a concert, sleepless nights, countless dressing room scenes and interviews, and all the magic in their hearts of what makes them great.
The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because of the disappointing photo book (the main reason why I went with the more expensive edition). Its suppose to have "Never before seen" photos and all it was full of was promo pictures you could find anywhere, none that were really special and a lot of the good pictures were small. That is literally the only setback with the whole set.
Other than that, I think its a great addition for any Bon Jovi Fan
