Bon Jovi's fascination with the Western continues with this soundtrack to the largely unmemorable film Young Guns II. However, this soundtrack is anything but unmemorable, with plenty of great tunes and wonderful lyrics.
Named after the classic song Blaze of Glory, that is indeed a stand out track, but don't expect the rest of the album to not live up to the legendary status of that song.
The album ranges from quieter laid back songs like Miracle, catchy anthem like songs like Bang A Drum, to full on rock songs like Never Say Die. You even get a short instrumental song, Guano City, that was used in the film.
Bon Jovi's husky tones suit this kind of cowboy album perfectly, and coupled with lyrics that really do make you feel like you are listening to a musical take on a Western movie. Memorable and easily relistenable many times, Blaze of Glory makes you want to jump on your horse and ride off into the sunset...

Truely a masterpiece. The album is just as powerfull now as when it was first released. It has that classic eighties Rock n Roll sound. Favourites are Billy Get Your Guns, Justice in The Barrel, Never Say Die, Dyin' Ain't Much of a Livin' and all time favourite Santa Fe. If you still don't own this album buy it you won't be disapointed.

Blaze of Glory rises above the trappings of a soundtrack to a rather lame movie, and ends up being one of the most consistent albums with which Mr Giovi's been involved.
It's not 100% fantastic (there are a couple of things that don't work, such as "Justice in a Barrel", and "You Really Got Me Now", but I defy any Bon Jovi fan not to be bowled over by the sheer brilliance of "Bang a Drum" and the title track.
And then there's "Santa Fe". Words alone can not do it justice. Just buy this CD, slam on Track 5, and everything will become clear.

truely great album which does the film justice. i don't think anyone could have done this better than bonjovi. though dialogue from the film is very low, this couldn't take anything away from this being 5 star quality. great lyrics in every song -

"Blood money. That's what I call it 'Cause money for blood ain't no fair exchange

Blood money Bought and then sold you But your conscience is all you can take to your grave"

a total rip roar of an album well worth adding to any record collection . Jon Bonjovi blows us away with a trully inspired western themed album from the title track to the instrumental end , all are well penned and this is jon telling the stories to his best ability. You will not be disappionted , with some guest appearances from Jeff Beck , Little Richard , and Aldo Nova . Get it you wont be sorry

I know this is badged as a Jon Bon Jovi album but it is clear that although tied in to the Young Guns film it has so many ways still sounds like a Bon Jovi album.

Good songs throughout which compliment the film and a few very good songs makes this album a good buy.
