Bon Jovi [Special Edition] [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Leslie Mathew
From the opening track, "Runaway," which rode to glory on E Street bandmate Roy Bittan's distinctive keyboard riff, to the sweaty arena rock of "Get Ready," which closed the album, Bon Jovi's debut is an often-overlooked minor gem from the early days of hair metal.

[This 2010 reissue features four live previously unreleased bonus tracks.]
