After the review of Richie Sambora's debut album it's time now for Jon Bon Jovi's debut effort. "Blaze Of Glory" is the original movie soundtrack of Young Guns II. The movie was overall a good one, but the music was great!
I have said it over and over again of what a big talent Jon Bon Jovi is, as a songwritter but also as a singer. This album shows once more the multi talent of this guy. "Miracle" and "Blaze Of Glory" were the big hits of that album. Both songs are some of the best tunes that J.B.Jovi have ever recorded.
But there are so much more songs from this album that rocks big time! The huge tune of "Santa Fe", which is one of my favourite track, the commercial with a catchy chorus "Never Say Die", the rockier tune of "Justice In The Barrel" and "Bang A Drum " are some of the highlights here.
All in all this is another one quality release from Jon Bon Jovi who shows that even without his main band members can rock as equal. Well done! HeavyParadise's Rating: 9/10
