WPDH Album of the Week: Bon Jovi ‘Bon Jovi’
Tune in for the WPDH Album of the Week this Sunday at 11PM. We’ll be bringing you Bon Jovi's self-titled debut album in its entirety, start to finish.
Bon Jovi's self-titled debut Bon Jovi was released Jan. 21, 1984 on Mercury Records and features the singles "Runaway" and "She Don't Know Me". AllMusic rated the album three-and-a-half stars out of five and reviewer Leslie Mathew said, "The songs may be simple and the writing prone to cliches of the form, but the album boasts a pretty consistent hard rock attack , passionate playing, and keen sense of melody." The album reached number 43 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Most songs of the album were rarely played live until the band's 2010 Circle Tour which saw the band performing album tracks "Roulette", "Shot Through The Heart", and "Get Ready".
