Having bought this album for my Mum for Christmas after reading the existing reviews on this site raving about it, and having been blown away after listening to it, I felt compelled to come on here and add to the afore-mentioned reviews and urge anyone who will listen to me to buy this album.
I know that I am not the first to be amazed by the debut effort of "The King of Swing". From my Bon Jovi obsession I knew Richie to be a very talented singer-songwriter and guitarist, but I only realised the depth of that talent on hearing this album. Richie's voice is soulful with a rough edge, his guitar playing exquisite and his lyrics can only be described as poetry. Having heard Jon's solo efforts, this album arguably answers the question of who the real talent behind Bon Jovi is. I urge you all to believe the existing reviews on this site about this album. I put my faith in them and neither my Mum nor I were disappointed; in fact, our expectations were surpassed. So all that remains for me to say is if you like Bon Jovi, you'll love this album, and if you simply appreciate music from the heart, this is the album for you.

The guitar virtuosity is unmistakable, the incredible talent and ability Richie has to make a guitar sing, reveal raw emotions and speak to the heart and soul of anyone with ears to listen. His first solo album reveals him as a consummate musician and singer-songwriter.Consider that some of the songs were written when he was only nineteen,and it's apparent that he's a world class artist. The fact that the album did not receive the critical acclaim it should have done only goes to prove that the rock press are too set in their ways and too prejudiced against the kind of solo ability Richie has to pay any real attention to him.
Track by track, the album winds its way into the soul of the listener, introducing us to Richie the man, Richie the artist and Richie the seeker of the answer. I defy anyone to listen to the last track on the album and remain unmoved by the lyrics. On a personal level, Ballad of Youth has to be one of my own favourite tracks, with its burning underlying lick and the strong message that we've all made mistakes but the main thing is to learn from them and then move on. River of Love is also a particular favourite, if only because the man is so damned sexy as well as talented that I can't listen to that one without a cold shower!
Eric Clapton's contribution to Mr. Bluesman is played brilliantly and it was such a milestone in Richie's life when he agreed to play on that track. Many people miss the real skill behind the first track, it bears really listening to and appreciating it in all its aspects.
The album as a whole is a perfect example of the wide-ranging skills of the man. Veering from blues through melodic rock, ballads with a gospel flavour to the rocking heavy feel of Rosie and River of Love, there can't be an artist with the talent at his fingertips and a voice that could melt permafrost like Richie Sambora. The King of Swing,long may he reign!

When this album was released I was still listening to the Jon Bon Jovi Young Guns 2 soundtrack and I felt that something was missing. This album proved to me that musically Jon needs Richie. Some could argue that when it comes to promoting the band maybe Richie needs Jon.

The mixture of the Rock Ballads and Bluesy guitar is what makes this album special. Richies voice is so strong that it's a pity that he doesn't do more solo singing on the Bon Jovi albums.

"Stranger in this town" and "Father Time" are brilliant haunting ballads, whilst "Rosie" and "Ballad of Youth" are guitar rock at it's best. Barely 1 average song on this album and something for every mood you may be in.

At this price buy it and turn the volume up.

Sometimes when you hear a particular song or album you're instantly transported to the very first moment you heard it.
In my case this was a hot evening in June 1991. I was 15 years old sitting on my parents sofa with a pair of massive headphones on my ears listening to Tommy's Vance's Friday Night Rock Show when this haunting keyboard intro starting up. Soon enough, a slow, but eerie guitar riff faded in followed a thumping bass line before the song exploded into my ears. After the song finished Tommy Vance announced "Richie Sambora. Church Of Desire. From his forthcoming solo album." I hadn't heard anything like it before and as a result I turned my back on Bobby Brown and Kylie. Unfortunately I misheard Tommy Vance's announcement as "Peachy Satsuma: Church Of Desire" which, needless to say, didn't help my find a copy of the single.
(I've since found out it was never released as a single.)
Some months later I caught the music video for "Ballad Of Youth" on a late night ITV1 rock show called "Raw Power". Over the next year I really got the chance to discover Bon Jovi thanks to a friend lending me a tape of "New Jersey". I begged my parents to buy me "Stranger In This Town" for Christmas". I'm glad they did.
Unsually, I have to listen to an album album 3 or 4 times before I'll start liking it. This was instant. Prove as to why critics call Richie one of the greatest guitarists of our time.

I am an avid Bon Jovi fan and on completion of buying all of their albums and Jon's two solo efforts, the next logical step was to buy Richie's stuff, and i'll admit at first i was skeptical about it. Don't get me wrong, i knew Richie was an exceptional singer-songwriter and an absolute magician with the guitar, but i was worried about how he'd perform without the majesty of Jon Bon Jovi alongside him. I am very pleased to tell you those fears were completely unfounded.

Every single song on this album, bar the first, which i just couldn't get into, is an absolute masterpiece. There is a real soulful edge to these songs and the guitar work is incredible. His lyrics and singing are extremely refreshing from the tons of love songs he ends up singing with Bon Jovi, their meanings varied and really recognisable instantly. Particular highlights for me are "Ballad of Youth" which has an incredible chorus and rhythmn that you can really get into. "Rosie" is probably my favourite on this album. It keeps you pumping constantly, has an absolutely magnificent chorus, and while the story of the song and it's meaning isn't exactly the deepest, it is a song you can really get into and will want to play over and over again. "Father Time", "Mr.Bluesman" and "Church of Desire" are also noteable highlights. All songs on this album are fantastic and each one is a refreshing change from Bon Jovi. As aforementioned, i was skeptical about how he'd do without Jon, but listening to this album and comparing it with Jon's solo efforts, Richie is by far the superior when standing on his own two feet.

For a Bon Jovi fan looking to look deeper into Richie's work, this is an absolute must buy, for anyone else, don't hesitate, take the plunge, you will not be dissapointed.
