It’s been a long 16 years since Bon Jovi was last compiled, when Cross Road arrived for the holiday season of 1994, two years after Keep the Faith capped off a near-decade long run of dominance for the Jersey rockers. As it turned out, it was the first act of Bon Jovi’s career.Read More

This is an “authorized” greatest hits collection in the sense that the band picked the selections themselves. It’s preferable to the 1991 Greatest Hits comp for its slightly greater length (16 songs) and better choice of material; the single version of “Southern Girls” makes it on this time around, for instance.Read More

This after-the-fact compilation from one of the last hard rock bands to make any sort of impression before the alt-rock revolution made most of it meaningless does its job, limited as it is, fairly well. All the hit singles that Sebastian Bach and company cranked out during their brief run of superstardomRead More

With only four full-length albums and a couple of live records to their name, it’s hard to view this 2006 two-disc Cinderella set as being essential, especially as the thorough Rocked, Wired & Bluesed: The Greatest Hits was released early the preceding year.Read More

While quite a few arena rock acts of the ’70s found the transformation into the ’80s quite difficult, several acts continued to flourish and enjoyed some of their biggest commercial success: Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, and especially Foreigner. Foreigner’s leader from the beginning has been British guitarist Mick Jones, who first broke into the music biz as a “hired gun” of sorts, appearing on recordings by George Harrison and Peter Frampton, and as part of a later-day version of hard rockers Spooky Tooth. By the mid-’70s, Jones had relocated to New York City, where he was a brief member of the Leslie West Band and served as an A&R man for a record company.Read More

On Beautiful Broken, Heart decide to tread a path well worn by vintage rockers: revisiting their catalog. This is an exercise often fraught with peril. That said, while Ann and Nancy Wilson do stumble, they’ve learned from predecessors’ mistakes. Seven of these ten cuts were previously recorded, but none are considered Heart standards.Read More
