Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres formed as the band Bon Jovi in 1983 and since have sold 130 million records worldwide, performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries to more than 34 million fans.

Bon Jovi for me are a timeless classic but refuse to put down their instruments and carry on producing more of those great hits that nobody can resist. They are here in 2010 with another greatest hits CD, but even though you already own most of their content, why should you buy this one?

Well, first up there are 2 different versions of the CD. There is the ‘Greatest Hits’ album, which has 16 of their songs, which includes 2 new tracks called ‘What Do You Got’ and ‘No Apologies’. The second version is called ‘Greatest Hits – The Ultimate Collection’ which has 2 CD’s with the second disk having another 14 tracks, which again includes 2 more new songs called ‘This Is Love, This Is Life’ and ‘The More Things Change’.

It has in fact been 16 years since Bon Jovi last released a Greatest Hits album, which was called ‘Cross Roads’ back in 1994, and they’ve released another 9 albums since then (These Days, Hiatus, Crush, One Wild Night, Bounce, This Left Feels Right, Have A Nice Day, Lost Highway and The Circle).

There was a box set released in 2004 called ‘100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can’t Be Wrong’ which had 4 CDs with 38 unreleased tracks and 12 rare tracks, which marked the sales of 100 million albums and their 20th anniversary.

Bon Jovi really doesn’t need any introduction, so there really is no question about buying this album. It is packed with a numerous amount of classics from the band, features new tracks and will never spend time collecting dust on your shelf, because as Bon Jovi said himself “These songs have stood the test of time”.
