Cross Road: The Best of Bon Jovi

( 16 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
While Bon Jovi managed to stick a couple of killer album tracks onto all of their records, their main strength had always been writing singles. Released in 1994, Cross Road collects all of their biggest hits, adding a couple of new songs including the international smash "Always," which helped the album go platinum in multiple countries and Jon Bon Jovi's solo hit, "Blaze of Glory," for good measure. Even the band's detractors may not be able to resist the constant flow of big guitars, bigger hooks, and sweet melodies that pour out on Cross Road.

    Greatest Hits Indeed

    Great album, a very good choice of such huge hits. Every song on this collection is great! Although, I would have appreciated a few songs like "Born To Be My Baby", "Only Loney", "The Hardest Part is the Night", or "I'd Die For You" but none of the less... this album is still great. Umm... Manny, actually Bon Jovi supports the Democratic party, they played for Gore and are currently supporting Kerry so you can just shut up (is that allowed? i dunno). Myself am a Republican. I don't really care though, their music is great so it shouldn't matter.

    Manny, Come on 1 star buddy?

    I tend to disagree with 'Manny' here. On the contrary, I think that this is a fantastic CD. I think that anyone who doesn't like Jon Bon Jovi or anybody in the group Bon Jovi is crazy. I have "Slippery When Wet" and I absolutely love it. There are three songs on this CD from that album, and those are; "Livin' on a Prayer", "Wanted Dead or Alive", and of course, "You Give Love a Bad Name", which are all great songs with "Wanted Dead of Alive" being my favorite. However, this CD isn't limited to the fabulousness of "Slippery When Wet", it has "Runaway" from their debut CD "Bon Jovi:Bon Jovi", which has to be the best damn songs that I have ever heard. There are also many, many, and yes I repeat MANY more Bon Jovi hits on this CD. Let me tell you, you have got to get this, and if you like good, rocking, and explicit music, check out Guns N' Roses, and all of the above in the 'recommended' section.

    How can You not LOVE Bon Jovi

    This CD is awesome! If you are a Bon Jovi Fan, which you definitely should be, you will love this CD with all of his greatest HITS! Come on, who can help yelling out the chorus to Living on a Prayer whenever it comes on? The ballads on this song are excellent, and everyone should have this CD whether you love the eighties rock or not... BON JOVI ROCKS

    Bon Jovi in Spanish: El-dork-o

    Doesn't Bon Jovi suck? He sure is pathetic. I'm sure he's George W. Bush's favorite musician, since they're both dumb. I curse the day when I first heard dork Bon Jovi.

    The Greatest!

    This album is a must have for any fan! When someone asks "who are they beautiful Jersey boys?" play Crossroads for them and they will be hooked. A mix of the best rock songs and power ballads it's hard to top so many great songs in one place!

    Bon Jovi's Crossroad Into Prominence

    The band, Bon Jovi, is a resounding example of success in a rock band to fit whatever era they found themselves in. In the 80's, their classical rock ballads hit the top charts numerous times, bringing out such hits as ''Livin' on a Prayer'', ''Bed of Roses'', and ''Keep the Faith''. Contrary to the fate of most bands, the group Bon Jovi is still performing with a new style of music and new hits. They rode through the rough times and and now they're back with ''It's My Life'' to prove that they truly are one of the greats. It should give us all incentive to live in the moment and keep pursuing what we love to do.
