Bon Jovi’s ‘Slippery when wet’ this album is one that should be in every one’s collection. It is an album that just screams out at you and forces you to belt out the songs. It starts with ‘Let it Rock’ an awesome song that starts out with massive amounts of re-verb and synthesiser, then launches straight it head-banging, cock punching lyrics, all you wannabe rock bands (take note Simple Plan!) could learn a few things from this song. The next song is ‘You give love a bad name’ which could be any needy clingy bitch that I have dated and then when I fall in love with them, they tell me they’re fucking redi! This song is another classic rock song, full of anger. The next song is quite possibly the best track on the album. ‘Livin’ on a prayer’ is the quintessential working class man song. I love singing this song when I am vacuuming up. ‘Social disease’ is another absolute gem, I can so relate to this song it’s all about “love is a social disease” just like STI’s. Then Bon Jovi slow it down with an awesome ballad called ‘Wanted dead or alive” this is how rock bands do ballads! Not like the bullshit that some bands come out with these days. ‘Raise your hands’ is a song that you can’t help but like, great lyrics sung with such passion and force that it is virtually impossible not to get caught up belting it out.
‘Without love’ is yet another song that Jon Bon Jovi sings and he sounds so tortured, just awesome. ‘I’d die for you’ starts out at a frantic pace and doesn’t let up the whole time. Great lyrics this song is a standout for me, especially the lyrics at the start. “Never say goodbye’ is a lament but god it’s unreal, he paints such a beautiful picture with words and music that it moves you I can relate to so much of that song especially “I sit in this smokey room, I pass my time with strangers but this bottle is my only friend’ it’s like he wrote this song for me! ‘Wild in the streets’ is the last song and it ends the whole album on a high, upbeat tempo, it leaves you wanting more.
All up I have just given this album four and half shots of whiskey out of five. If you have this album, put it on full blast, if you don’t have this album, give yourself an uppercut you silly bitch!
Till next week, peace out my bitches!
