About this album

Keep the Faith is the fifth studio album by American rock band Bon Jovi, released on November 3, 1992 by Mercury Records. The RIAA certified it Double Platinum for two million shipments throughout the United States. The album has sold over 10 million copies worldwide to date. Keep The Faith was ranked number 21 on Kerrang magazine’s list of the 100 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The album also featured in the Classic Rock & Metal Hammer ‘s The 200 Greatest Albums Of The 90’s. The album was remastered and re-released in 1998, adding the Live From London performance of “Keep the Faith” as a bonus track.

Following the completion of New Jersey tour, the band went on hiatus. During their time off, Jon Bon Jovi wrote the soundtrack for Young Guns II, which was released in 1990 as the Blaze of Glory album and Richie Sambora released his first solo album called Stranger In This Town. By this time, Jon Bon Jovi fired his long time manager, Doc McGhee and created Bon Jovi Management. Jon decided to take on a larger role, and more responsibilities within the band. The band quickly became a corporation with Jon at the helm.

In October 1991 the band went to a Caribbean island of St. Thomas to discuss plans for the future; the band’s internal problems were solved and they were ready to have a go at a comeback. In January 1992 they headed to Little Mountain Studios in Vancouver. They spent six months making the album with Bob Rock producing. Keep The Faith was released in October 1992. The musical tastes had shifted in the four years between New Jersey and Keep the Faith. Despite the industry’s and audience’s growing affinity for Grunge rock, Bon Jovi’s sound morphed itself to work in the 1990s music scene, and also their image changed.

    So easily BJ's best album, I understand that some people disliked their departure from glam metal but this showcases their The Beatles-/The Rolling Stones-influences with awesome vocal harmonies, catchy songs, amazing vocal- and instrumental performances and all. This is musically their best work and can't be beaten!

    Song highlights: "I Believe", "Keep the Faith", "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead", "In These Arms", "Bed of Roses", "Dry County", "Fear" and "Save a Prayer": Proof that this is truly Bon Jovi's best album!

    The first half of Keep the Faith is incredible cluster of classic songs, then after masterful epic "Dry County" the album starts to have some filler songs towards the end. They should've included "Save a Prayer" in the original album and released that one as a single, really original and awesome track! Sadly they are making boring and recycled rock albums nowadays, this album really shows what they should continue doing! Jon's vocals are godly here, all those powerful belted notes are damn impressive, Richie's guitarwork and the rhythm playing of the band is also breathtaking!
