5.0 out of 5 stars The first of Bon Jovi twin hit albums., 25 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slippery When Wet (Audio CD)
No one could have imagined that this album would have made the impact it did when it was released in the autumn of 1986.

Slippery When Wet saw a more focused album in both the songwriting and productions. With the songwriting Jon Bon Jovi had been introduced by KISS's Paul Stanly to a struggling songwriter from Miami called Desmond Child. With Desmond, Jon and guitarist Richie Sambora began a song writing partnership that is still going strong to this day. Helming the album was Bruce Fairbairn with engineer and mixer, Bob Rock, later of Metallica.

The bands first USA number 1 hit singles 'You Give Love A Bad Name' only managed to peak at no.14 in the UK but caught the attention of rock fans over hear. Slippery When Wet, released in September 1986 (June in USA) became one of the best selling albums of the 1980s and is probably still their best effort. Unlike the previous two albums, there is no filler. From the opening track 'Let It Rock' to the end with 'Wild In The Streets' you know you are in for a good time. Also appearing are the three other UK single 'Livin' On A Prayer', 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' and 'Never Say Goodbye'.
