Bon Jovi - 1984 Bon Jovi
Looking back on it now, all things considered, this album quite easily ranks as one of the finest melodic rock albums ever made. Personally, if the band broke up after this album I still would have been a happy man.

Bon Jovi - 1985 7800 Fahrenheit
This follow-up to the classic debut offered more of the same, good hard rock with mammoth AOR overtones, but still containing the pop edge.

Bon Jovi - 1986 Slippery When Wet
'Slippery When Wet' set all sorts of records upon it's release. It was the first rock album to include three singles into the top 10. The first album and single off it to be at number one at the same time. The end-result? Well, nearly 30 million records later, the hard work put in at the front end paid dividends.. and then some..

Bon Jovi - 1988 New Jersey
Listening to this again years later, I am compelled to grudgingly admit that this was a damn fine piece of work for 1988. Possibly because of their superstar status during this timeframe may have seen me apply the tall poppy syndrome unfairly to Bon Jovi, and also the fact that the band were highly overexposed and saturated in radio and TV. For what it's worth, a great album that deserves a lot more respect.

Bon Jovi - 2002 Bounce
The album was actually a tepid mixture of modern rock and weepy ballads that had little to do with the sound that enabled them to become huge in the 80's.

Bon Jovi - 2009 The Circle
Bon Jovi claim that this album 'rocks hard'. However and disappointingly so, there is nothing here resembling hard rock. Who are they kidding?

Message - 1981 Lessons
This was the band of the late Dean Fasano, which featured pre Bon Jovi membership before their 1984 'Breakout'!

Sambora, Richie - 1991 Stranger In This Town
The direction of 'Stranger In This Town' takes a bluesy turn, with the big production there to ensure radio compatibility. I quite like his voice, and overall this album is pretty good.

The Essential Series - 2018 Purist AOR (Volume 1) by Gdazegod
I could sit here and discuss the merits of our favourite sub-genre of music AOR until I'm blue in the face. So I won't. Read on.
