Best Bon Jovi Album

The Top Ten

1 Slippery When Wet

"It's mainly good because of Livin' on a Prayer and You give Love a bad name. The other albums are good but this album contains my 2 favorite songs!

every album (except fahrenheit) are awesome... but this one and New Jersey are absolutely one of the greatest albums ever and GREATEST hard rock albums... man this is special!

New Jersey's great, These Days is great, Slippery is a masterpiece however. Any album by the Jov is fantastic though - StevoMuzz

The one that introduced me to them and still the overall most coherent and best flowing album; their best by far!

2 These Days

I like this album a lot, These Days is my favorite Bon Jovi songs cause of the lyrics and instrumentation that support the lyrics. Same goes for all the other songs on this album they're all just so good.

This should be on top in my opinion... they've never sounded better.

Bon jovi has never sounded this good. there are some of the saddest songs in it such as (it's hard) letting you go, something to believe in, lie to me. and some cool riffs such as hey god, damned. and just great songs as these days, this ain't a love song, my guitar lies bleeding. every song on this is just great

For the past twenty-plus years, I thought I was one of very few who regarded this as Bon Jovi's best work. This album always meant a lot to me on a personal level. I decided to research and learn what others think about this album and it's nice to see so many others feel the same. On just about any ranking, this comes out on top. I only wish Bon Jovi continued making music like this.

3 New Jersey

This is Bon Jovi's best album, The whole album is great. The start of the album is great too, Lay Your Hands on Me is a hell of a way to start off an album, then followed by Bad Medicine. I'll Be there For You is a great rock ballad also, probably one of the best ever written!

It has the best songs such as I'll be there for you, Born to be my baby, Blood on blood, Bad medicine...

The first three songs are epic. Excellent way to start an album

Oh, baby can you tell me
Where we fit in?
I call it love,
They call it livin' in sin

Could I even not vote for album with this song on?

4 Keep The Faith

I can't believe this is only 4th. Keep the faith and Dry county are probably the best Bon Jovi songs, but maybe they're not as mainstream and don't appeal to larger audience.

Almost all their albums are great but this one is my favourite. There are killing ballads like In These Arms and Bed Of Roses which has also a spanish version. Also there are songs like I'll Sleep When I'm Dead and If I Was Your Mother with great solos by Richie. Songs like I Believe and Keep The Faith help you to go on in this world and encourage you. But to me the best song in this album and the best Bon Jovi song ever is DRY COUNTY WHICH COMBINES ALL THESE THINGS!

Best BJ album ever. Great fresh hard rock songs like I Believe, Keep the Faith, I'll sleep when I'm dead... Beautiful ballads like In these arms, I want you and Bed of roses. With Fear and If I was your mother there are some heavier songs maybe one of there heaviest songs. Every song is great and goes into your ear. This is the typical Bon Jovi optimism.

Iit is the best because it has the old school songs as IF I WAS YOUR MOTHER and ballads like In These Arms and we can not forget those with style as Sleep When I'm Dead and Keep the Faith. Combines the best styles of Bon Jovi, magnificent.

5 Bon Jovi

Of all the Bon Jovi albums I tend to like this one the best even though it never sold as well or had as many hits as SSW or NJ. I like the rawness and brashness of it before they made it big and were all glam. Not as polished as their later albums but still a great album in its own right. One of the better rock releases of 1984.

Burning for love... For ever

This album is 100% awesome.

"she don't know me" is a better song than all the "you give love a bad name" songs of the world.

6 Have A Nice Day

It's a hard choice, but I vote this. But why is Crossroad on the list? It's a compilation album, of course it has the best songs. They have other good albums, These days has the best lyrics, New Jersey is almost as good as HAND, and Bounce has great songs, but this is the best.

One of the best albums with songs like "I Am" "Novocaine" "who says you can't go home" and "have a nice day". Best album of all time.

This is my favorite album but my favorite song is say it isn't so.

For me, the Bon Jovi�'s work took the top here... This album sounds like a hard rock. It still was Bon Jovi att all. After it, nothing more...

7 Crush

Crush is record which is between 21st century and 80s and it has new touch of bon jovi's new era it has fab tracks like its my life their trademark song then love ballad like thank you for loving me that's why it must be in topp 5 at least... ) - vishwarajvithuvivi

Their last great album, Crush is a fun record made with a back-to basics approach reminiscent of their 80s stuff. Also a great portrait of what the band is about: anthemic and epic rockers (Its my life, just Older, next 100 years), powerful ballads (Thank you for loving, mystery train) and pure pop (captain crash, say it itsnt so). A must-have!

8 7800 Fahrenheit

Though I prefer Slippery When Wet, New Jersey and Bon Jovi over this one, I'm giving it a vote because it deserves to be in top 6. It has some amazing songs, one of which almost made me cry (being Only Lonely). Other ones include In And Out of Love, Tokyo Road, The Hardest Part is the Night and Silent Night.

Features two absolute great ones! In And Out Of Love is an earth-shattering track and a bit of an underrated one, Tokyo Road has a really catchy beat!

Glam metal is something simple. Party Alcohol and girls... This is the best photograph of that era.

Not an easy choice, but I love the old sound of Bon Jovi!

9 Bounce

This is not only my favourite Bon Jovi album, but one of my favourite albums of all time too! Considering pretty much every album they release is at least 8/10 there are a lot to choose from as "the best". It's always a sign of a great album when the singles are all top-quality, but you find even better songs on the album - "You Had Me from Hello", "Right Side of Wrong", "Undivided", "Hook Me Up" and "Bounce" are all incredible. The remaining songs aren't exactly bad either, and I'm certain others would find their favourite Bon Jovi song hidden amongst the track listing on this bad boy.

Everyday this album is Misunderstood. This album and the likes of Slippery When Wet are Undivided. This album went The Distance. Bounce this album up to the top 5, because Bon Jovi is always there to Hook Me Up. Bon Jovi, your fans, are All About Lovin' You.

I'm a little Bias but it was the first album I ever had and the Bounce tour was my first ever concert, maybe not his greatest but there are some such as "Joey" and "The Distance" definitely worth another listen.

10 Crossroad

Always, just Always, the song that MADE BON JOVI. - DaringXx

Definitely the best! Its basically a greatest hits album

This is seriously the best. Livin on a prayer, You give love a bad name, Wanted dead or alive... SERIOUSLY THIS IS #7?!

I HAVE TO VOTE FOR THIS ALBUM BECAUSE I HEARD IT IS BASICALLY THEIR GREATEST HITS AND IT HAS ALL THEIR BEST SONGS

The Contenders

11 The Circle

This record is awesome. I've heard all the bon jovi records (I have all of them), this one may not have the big long guitar solos but it has the most meaningful lyrics. I love every song on this record and I deeply enjoy playing the entire album on guitar.

Beautiful songs, ballad or heavy, from beginning to end.

12 This House Is Not For Sale

Official New Greatest hit album it.

13 Lost Highway

Highly under rated album. Good to have a bit of a different vibe once in a while. Honestly think this album brings out Jon's true identity, something he has always wanted to express.

Lost Highway is a great album, and the title track has to be the best song. Such a good rhythm!

My favorite album since Slippery When Wet. I love Lost Highway

Lost highway is the best album.

14 Destination Anywhere

Bettera than any bon jovi album

Even though it's a JON Bon Jovi album, Janie, Don't Take Your Love To Town... Queen Of New Orleans... Ugly... Destination Anywhere... Naked... and... August 7, 4:15, rock. That is 6 songs off of a 12 song album that rocks. This means that this album should be higher, 50% of this rocks. I mean the other songs are bad, but this is up there for one of my favorite albums of all time... and I didn't know it even existed till I bought it about 4 months ago.

This is Jon Bon Jovi, not Bon Jovi. it shouldn't be on this list.

15 Greatest Hits

Good But It Misses Hits Like Runaway, Keep The Faith, Blaze Of Glory etc...

Runaway and Blaze Of Glory are both on it. You miss Someday I'll Be Saturday Night, Lost Highway, Keep The Faith, Bed Of Roses, This Ain't A Love Song, These Days, In These Arms, Blood On Blood, This Is Love This Is Life, and The More Things Change - BonJovi17

Best Compilation Ever!

Classic Compilation

Brilliant greatest hits 😆

16 Burning Bridges

Oh come on, this album rocks

C tier - christangrant

17 Blaze Of Glory (Young Guns Soundtrack)

Have to say it's the best simply for Blaze of Glory, a really good song to listen/jog/work out/play to, the opening, wavering guitar chords and the chorus make it an unforgettable classic!

Great album Blazy Of Glory was written on a napkin

18 One Wild Night: Live 1985-2001

should be a 2cd box but it's also ok like this - richie4life

19 This Left Feels Right
20 What About Now?

Just the best. Definitely the most underrated BJ album there is. All of them are good, has some great ones like Pictures of You and That's What the Water made me, but without a doubt the creme de la creme's of the album are I'm With You (The entire chorus is epic) and Because We Can (Hitting straight into the song with the amazing chorus")

21 Bon Jovi the Crush Tour
22 Bon Jovi Greatest Hits - The Ultimate Collection

This album is the only Bon Jovi album I’d get because it has all of their major hits including four new songs which are all brilliant. Also misses some hits such as never say goodbye,dry county but don’t let that put you of. This is a 10/10
