  • I got the remastered CD version of Slippery When Wet since I didn’t want to wear out the cassette version. The sound is so sharp and you can hear the lead guitars and drums quite clearly.
    Slippery has lyrics that are a little cliched at times, but Jon Bon Jovi wrote from his experiences and life in many of these songs. Desmond Child and Richie Sambora wrote with Jon as well as the band. But the album is full-blown arena rock at its loudest in the ’80s. Let It Rock is so full of energy for all its 5 minutes, it should be the song to open up all their concerts, even for their latest album , Have a Nice Day. It pairs well with their first #1, the danceable and sometimes funky You Give Love a Bad Name. Never Say Goodbye is a nice power ballad, sometimes sappy and would be perfect to play on prom nights today. Wanted Dead or Alive I still love today with its acoustic guitar leading to the big bombastic guitars in the song’s middle. But I don’t want to leave out the other songs. There are some solid numbers with Social Disease, the big album closer Wild in The Streets (they danced to this a lot on the USA network’s teen dance show Dance Party USA in mid-1987, which was taped in Philadelphia),Raise Your Hands, and my favorite, the charging I’d Die For You. It’s New Jersey-based rock with the feel of being in a big arena with the band performing loud in front of 60,000 fans. That’s how good this album sounds and that’s why it’s still one of my favorites out of my music collection! The album that the band took control of their music career and succeeded! I still can’t believe that it’s sold over 12-15 million since ‘86!
