Ah... Bon Jovi. Livin' on a Prayer, Shot Thru the Heart, It's My Life, right? But every band has to start somewhere, and for them, it was Runaway, the iconic track that opens this album and shot them - or more accurately, Jon Bongiovi, who cut that particular piece (partly written by some rather more experienced players on the rock scene) together in some spare studio time with the help of a bunch of by-the-hour sessionists before even getting an actual band together.

The rest of the album features the extended talents of most of the familiar crew from the middle years of the band, having been hurridly thrown together and landing on a winning formula more or less by luck, and a greater proportion of music and lyrics from Jon's own pen. It's a relatively winning formula. You can't call it a perfect album by any stretch, but there's a lot of good songs here with a few standouts (Roulette, the misleadingly titled Shot Through The Heart, etc), all the players show a lot of youthful talent, charm and above all drive, and it meshes together quite well. It's also, perhaps surprisingly, excellently engineered, and very nice to listen to with a set of good headphones.

The same can't be said of the Remastered version, where basically all that's happened is that someone's run a fairly needless noise reduction filter over the whole thing, and then subjected it to a brutal and merciless run through the dynamic compressor. The original was slightly quiet, but nothing that couldn't be fixed by turning up the volume, and had nice wide dynamics, a good sense of space and every instrument sat together well and could be picked out individually, even after bouncing down to tape and being played in the car...

I find this album great to listen to all the songs (exept maby Break out) are great and Runaway stands out in the history of 80's Rock music. The only thing that disapointed me about this album was its 9 track list. I understand that this was there debute and would have been itching to finish it, but one or two more studio songs couldn't have hurt surely?

Bon Jovi's self titled debut, originally set to be called 'Tough Talk' was released in the USA in January 1984 ahead of the bands debut single 'Runaway'. The album is mostly filler songs which some gems in between. Stand of songs are 'Runaway' which was a Jon Bon Jovi solo song recorded prior to the band being formed, the anthemic air punching road rock song 'Roulette' and the tender 'Love Lies'. The second single, 'She Don't Know Me' (the only song on a Bon Jovi album not written by Jon Bon Jovi or any of the band) is a sugary sort of ballad, where as 'Shot Through The Heart' almost hits the spot. The remaining tracks 'Burning For Love', 'Breakout', 'Come Back' and 'Get Ready' are very weak.

A promising debut.
