This cd is good but it's better after you watch the movie. a solid 8/10 for me.

From: rocknutter2001 Date: August 16, 2002 at 7:37
jon wrote this for the film young guns but it still rocks and is well worth getting

From: zakar Date: August 23, 2002 at 11:15
the best jon's solo album. he still screaming here. you can hear it in the song santa fe. if yu like bon jovi, you'll like this album

From: The Fizzy One Date: September 28, 2002 at 18:08
The best songs here are the first side of the tape (1-5). The only song on side 2 that I really like is 'Bang a Drum.' 5/10

From: fernando-spain Date: August 26, 2003 at 4:03

Let's hope so & quick!!!!!!! Poodle

From: Aldas Date: April 18, 2004 at 18:46
This is good album. In this album you won`t find a energy of Slippery When Wet or New Jersey,but is still a very good job. In this album you can feel even country stile influence. His another solo album, 1997 Destination Anywhere is more of a pop album and the girls liked that CD a lot.

From: kostasraskolni Date: May 11, 2004 at 7:48
Great melodies,great stuff.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 12, 2004 at 23:33
Some nice extensions of the western themed music of Bon Jovi songs like Wanted Dead Or Alive with the hits Miracle, Blaze Of Glory, and opener Billy Get Your Guns. The rest is mostly filler, but still enjoyable. 6/10

From: rockman Date: July 20, 2004 at 4:10
i always enjoy this album everytime i hear it. really good stuff. 9.9/10

From: Tardin Date: August 27, 2004 at 18:37
The greatest artist ever recorded a perfect countr / hard album. Please, visit Brazilian Hard Rock website!

From: Tom Bombadil Date: December 1, 2004 at 5:39
Check out Santa Fe, songwriting at its best!

From: Artie Date: December 14, 2004 at 15:53
This album is probably in my top 10 of all time. I'm in the rare 1%, I know, but the hooks and melody on most of the songs are amazing, and a bit more heavy than one would expect, with a Westernized theme. People can say it's crap if they want, but I think they need to be a bit more open-minded, and perhaps hear the album more than just one time. I remember when Bon Jovi was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and he brought up this Soundtrack. It was nice to hear the audience clapping.

From: gener8tr Date: February 7, 2005 at 13:56
This was a nice 'departure / expiramental' album for Bon Jovi... At least he kept true in part to his melodic-rock roots with the title track, Billy Get Your Guns and Never Say Die. I think the album faired as well as it did riding the coattails of New Jersey... That being said, Jon's 1997 Destination Anywhere project didn't have any coattails to ride on, and failed miserably. I cannot believe the same man who wrote Livin' on a Prayer also penned Queen of New Orleans? That disc is BRUTAL!

From: Aussie Dave Date: March 10, 2005 at 1:14
Not a bad solo release from the leader of Bon Jovi! Some cool cowboy rock on here like Blaze Of Glory, Billy Get Your Guns and Bang A Drum. But the two killer tracks are Never Say Die and Santa Fe. Was good to have this come out while we waited for a new Jovi album. 8/10....

From: Geoff Date: March 13, 2005 at 22:21
I really like this album. 'Miracle' is a beautiful song, and has always appealed to me so much because of some of the best lyrics Jon ever wrote. And the song also reminds me of good times, but it's a great song either way. 'Blaze Of Glory' is a little over-heard, but still a really great song, 'Santa Fe' is in my top 5 BJ related songs. Holy f*ck, what a song... and again Jon shines with some excellent lyrics. 'Justice In The Barrel' is a killer hard rocker and overall I like this CD.

From: Shyboy Date: December 2, 2006 at 9:54
Great job of Bon Jovi and one of the best guitar player ever, Jeff Beck. This CD is blues-rock with the great voice of one (still) young Bon Jovi. This album is ideal for go to travel...

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 1, 2007 at 16:06
I really like this. Granted, it's not really exactly like any Bon Jovi album, but it wasn't supposed to be. A kind of rock/country fusion of sorts with more of an emphisis on the rock side. If you ever in the mood for a more acoustic based rock side of Jon, but with all the trademark hooks and melodies you are used to, then give this one a whirl. You will not be disapointed. If you wanna hear the next 'Slippery When Wet', you will. Great laid back rock n roll.

From: kai Date: July 23, 2008 at 23:46
In this solo album Jon Bon Jovi experiments with different styles of music, but still sticking to Bon Jovi's (the band)hard rock roots (at least at that time). Great rocking and hooky tunes like 'Never Say Die', 'Justice In The Barrel' and 'Bang A Drum' with powerful ballads like 'Blaze Of Glory' and 'Santa Fe'.

From: hair metal again Date: July 18, 2011 at 10:42
pretty good release by Jon ,as a soundtrack for the movie.the strong point here is the sound which is rockin n groovy.highlights are "miracle","blaze of glory" and "dyin ain t much of a livin". ok release

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 19, 2011 at 1:15
"Blaze Of Glory" and "Miracle" were both big hits for Jon in 1990, but this disc doesn't have much else to offer. "Billy Get Your Guns" is the token rocker to start things off, andj is pretty good as well, and "Bang A Drum" is very nice as well. I always liked "Blood Money" as well, but beyond that, there just isn't much here, and this is a tape I listen to very infrequently. Come to think of it, I don't recall listening to it a whole hell of a lot back then either. Just didn't impress overall, not unlike the movie.

This guy is a dope.Keep your leftist-elitist-eastcoast-political views to yourself pal-No one wants to hear it.Ive never understood the appeal of this guy or his music.Pedestrian at best..weak vox and imo a criminally overrated hack.

From: 123charpenay Date: January 18, 2013 at 10:42
to metal t.jon bon jovi pedestrian?why not but i have a big doubt.have you seen one time his wife?she is an atomic bomb.a real dream for guys who loves woman (like me).with a woman like this, you don t sleep in the bathroom.i think you are jealous.ok bon jovi don t play metal he plays a o r.and honestly i am not fan of their solo albums.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 18, 2013 at 17:53
He means "pedestrian" as in boring, mediocre, average, nothing special. What did you think he meant? I mean, knowing English isn't your first language. Were you thinking it was similar to "pedophile?"

From: 123charpenay Date: January 19, 2013 at 3:14
TO DOGHOUSE really sorry .i m french.i have not understand "pedestrian".in french a guy who is homosexual is a "pederaste".so i imagine by error that pedestrian is similar to pederaste.of course for me it s more easy to write in french but on this site i make the effort to write in english for a great communication with others,even if i m sure my grammar in english is not always perfect.i stop school and english lessons in regards from france.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 19, 2013 at 9:38
I thought it might be something like that, 123. We have the same word in English, without the E: pederast, but it's not used that much. "Pedestrian," literally means somebody walking on the street (instead of driving or riding a bike), as in "a pedestrian was struck and killed by a beer truck." So there's your English lesson for today, dude.

From: 123charpenay Date: January 19, 2013 at 11:03
thanx for the lesson.if one day you need french lesson......

From: metalmaniac777 Date: March 1, 2018 at 13:32
I know it's cool these days to bash on our boy Jon, but in my opinion (which nobody cares about but me, and rightfully so) he's still one of the best vocalists to grace the rock 'n' roll scene, and some (not all, not by a long shot) of the songs on this rock-country hybrid prove why. Sure, "Blaze of Glory" has been overcooked by the radio, but once you strip away the oversaturation stigma, it's a good song that deserved its hit single status. The other tracks that will make your ears happy are "Blood Money," Santa Fe," "Never Say Die," and "Dyin' Ain't Much of a Livin'." As for the rest ... some are crap, some are just banal, but none really merit much attention. Bottom line, there's not much here that matches JBV's glory days, but there's still some worthwhile music amidst all the mediocrity. Whether or not it's worth rooting around in dog shit to find diamonds is totally your call.
