      • Bonfire....long forgotten Bon Jovi wannabes from Germany.

        Their album actually gets a four star review in the next Kerrang! issue....

            same position as The Chart Show!

            Beavis and Butthead would have a laughing fit for weeks over that title.

              • I do love Nothin' But A Good Time, easily my favourite from them.

                Lay Your Hands On Me, is one of my favourite Bon Jovi tracks. I think New Jersey as a whole, is a far better album than Slippery When Wet, shame none of it's songs seem to have remained in the publics attention span, to the same extent as SWWs.

                I've never been the biggest Aerosmith fan and never really took to their stuff in the 80s/90s, some great tracks in there but never really got into their albums from these periods, certainly not the way I did with their 70s albums like Toys, Rocks or Aerosmith. Love In An Elevator is a catchy enough wee tune but nothing fantastic in my opinion.

                • Agree...sort of, on New Jersey.

                  The album highlights like 'Blood On Blood' and 'Living In Sin' are better than anything on SWW but there are a couple of jokey and rather out of place tracks on Side Two that would have been better left off IMO - especially as the album was much longer than SWW!

                    • I only really like the three big singles and Let It Rock from SWW. NJ on the other hand, I pretty much like everything, even the jokey stuff, with Bad Medicine, Lay Your Hands On Me, Living In Sin and Stick To Your Guns, being my favourites.

                      Comment


                      • Did you get the special edition of NJ that came out a few ( more than a few now, I guess) years ago?

                        Had a bunch of (generally very good) out-takes from the album.

                        I've got it somewhere but haven't seen it for ages....hope it hasn't gone walkabouts....

                        • No, not really that much of a fan of theirs, to buy Special/Deluxe style packages of their albums, although I'm sure I've come across it on Spotify or somewhere. Mostly likely just played the remastered album though and none of the extras.

                            After Alice's 'Poison' nearly reached the top of the official singles chart (held off by Jive Bunny ) I remember hoping the follow-up 'Bed Of Nails' (a raunchier re-write of 'Livin' On A Prayer' - what's not to like? ) would go one better. Sadly, t' was not to be...

                              Some interesting new entries here...

                              Iron Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith proves to be a decent lead vocalist on his between-albums side project...

                              At 7 we have the original and best (IMO) version of the Wuthering Heights-inspired Jim Steinman classic that charted big for Celine Dion in '95 and Meat Loaf in '06...

                                Correct. I bought the 12" with its great cover art.

                                      • Sleeping My Day away was/is a great single. They were called Disneyland After Dark at first but quickly changed it to avoid a legal challenge. They are Danish and released an album in 2019.

                                        • It was the end of an era for Status Quo as 'Not At All' became their first single (re-issues aside) to miss the top 40 since the early 1970s. They had a phenomenal run of 32 consecutive top 40 hits. However 'Not At All' sounds tired and uninspired even by the poor standards of late 80s Quo.

                                            Yes, bad choice for a single.

                                            B-side material at best.

                                              • The Almighty were a pretty good live band, although I had a bit of overkill with them in 91/92, as I seen them about 4 or 5 times, mainly not through choice, as they turned up as openers for Alice Cooper, Megadeth and Motorhead, that I can remember.

                                                7 O' Clock, will never exactly be a fave of mine, but its probably my favourite by them.

                                                Crue had some good tracks on Dr Feelgood, this being one of them, amongst some crap. Never been their biggest fan but I do enjoy the odd track of theirs, like Wildside or Shout At The Devil.
